What’s on in Brisbane this weekend

We don’t mean to alarm you, but it happens to be Splendour weekend. For those of you who didn’t manage to snag tickets (soz), there is still plenty happening right here in Brisbane to keep you distracted from the fact that you won’t be seeing King Kenny in person (soz again, we know it stings). From dimmy and dumplings to local flavours and even a spot of wrestling, we’ve scouted the best things to do in Brisbane on the July 19–22 weekend. more

Savour and snack to your belly’s content at the Night Noodle Markets

Good Food Month is in full swing and a plethora of Brisbane’s eateries have been dishing out the flavoursome fare. While we’re all too happy to indulge all month long, we’ve been saving room for the Night Noodle Markets, which kick off next week on Wednesday July 25. For ten days, South Bank’s Cultural Forecourt will host a smorgasbord of Asian food stalls, hawking everything from gelato katsu sandwiches to KFC cheese puffle cones. more

Good greens – a kokedama and indoor plant pop-up has landed in Winn Lane

Some time in the past couple of years, horticulture went from being a bit of a hobby for some people to a full-blown phenomenon – and quite frankly, we’re thrilled that it’s cool to love plants. Before the indoor plant trend started blowing up, a Brisbane lady by the name of Phoebe Hearsch was trying to figure out a way to spend more time at home with her two pooches, Max and Mort. Fast-forward four years and Phoebe is a one-woman show running her own kokedama and indoor plants business named after her beloved pups, servicing our fine city with little slices of lush on the regular. more
