Take a load off at Wilston’s SALT Dining & Lounge Bar

Wilston’s Kedron Brook Road dining strip scored a warm and welcoming new eatery in April when SALT Dining & Lounge Bar opened its doors. Owner and youth mentor Danni Suriano has sought to establish a safe place where people can come together over good food and positive vibes. In addition to a menu of inclusive fare, SALT Dining & Lounge Bar is also specialising in decadent desserts and inventive cocktails, injecting some action into the area’s nightlife. more

The Weekend Series: five new shows to cure your post-Game-of-Thrones blues

It’s been packed with mayhem, plot twists and takeaway coffee cups, but the final season of Game of Thrones will soon come to a bittersweet end. In order to combat your post-GoT melancholy, we’ve rustled up five of the best new series that can fill the streaming void. From classic novel adaptations to twisted sketch comedy, these TV shows will help keep you occupied through winter (or let's be honest, probably just the rainy weekend ahead). more

Vino but not as you know – Wine Playground returns to showcase our country’s most progressive drops

When it comes to the world of wine, things can come across as awfully serious. For those of us who enjoy a good drop, it can be hard to imagine just hanging out with the actual people that make wine – you know, the folk off in the vineyards tinkering and perfecting all of the delicious varieties we enjoy on the regular. One beloved event that puts a personal spin on the world of viticulture is Wine Playground, a day for vino-loving folk to sip and sample drops from some of Australia’s top winemakers – all while the winemakers themselves are present. Returning to Happy Boy (and its sibling Snack Man) on Saturday May 25, this is one sipping spectacular you won’t want to miss. more

Sold on Seoul – why this South Korean hotspot should be at the top of your travel bucket list

For a while now, Japan has held dominion over Australians seeking an exciting and enriching Asian escape. No shade at all to the land of the rising sun, but we’ve caught wind of another holiday destination that is well worth your attention – we’re talking Seoul, South Korea! From the delectable food offering through to the breathtaking vistas and killer cultural scene, this city is a diamond just waiting for you to discover it – not to mention you can get there in just over nine hours. Getting curious? To celebrate the fact that they now do flights directly to South Korea, we’ve teamed up with Gold Coast Airport to bring you the best bits of Seoul. Be warned – this list will incite some serious wanderlust and have you wanting to hop on the next available plane (which you can find here, by the way). more
