Believe it – Cher to headline the 40th anniversary Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras Party

If we could turn back time, we would have loved to be present for the very first Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras in 1978. In its 40-year history the rainbow celebration of all things LBGTQI has hosted an array of incredible acts and activists, including George Michael, Village People, Cyndi Lauper and Kylie Minogue, so it makes sense that it's 40th anniversary party be headlined by a true gay icon. Are you strong enough to handle this? You better believe it, the rumours are true – performing this year's Mardi Gras Party is the mononymous queen herself, Cher. more

Feasts worth flying for – the year’s most exciting interstate openings

The new year has well and truly arrived, and we are more than ready to embrace all that it will bring – especially to our stomachs – with open arms and mouths. While it’s already set to be an exciting year of food in Brisbane (refer to our list of upcoming openings), it should also be a year of expanding our culinary horizons. This year our resolution is to explore more of our own country – you know we’re going to be doing a whole lot of eating everywhere we go and we implore you to do the same. Here are some of the top new Australian restaurants of 2017 outside of Queensland that we just can’t wait to try. more
