The Roadtrip Series: soak in the serenity of natural treasure Hamilton Island

If you live in Australia, odds are you’ve heard of the Whitsundays as a whole – the dreamy collective of island wonders is pretty much like a living postcard. Of the main populated islands (most of them are uninhabited national parks), one shines particularly brightly – we’re talking Hamilton Island, baby! The largest of the bunch, this picture-perfect holiday locale is the sort of place that was made for escaping to. If you’ve been having intense fantasies about shirking all responsibility to live the luxe life you know you so richly deserve, this inside look at Hamilton Island might just convince you to take the leap. more

Top Dog Film Festival heads to the Gold Coast for one night only

Here at The Weekend Edition, we have two obsessions – food and dogs. We get to talk about food on the daily, which is rad – but we get oh-so excited when we get to talk about dogs as well. Now, if you share our love and affection for all things canine, then make sure you get yourself tickets to the Top Dog Film Festival at the Arts Centre Gold Coast this Monday August 21. more

Live and work at Habitat – Byron Bay’s innovative new mixed-use community

One of the biggest battles we face is trying to nail the work/life balance. For some, it's attainable, for others it remains an enviable pipe dream. Just south of the border in Byron Bay, a new mixed-use village is sprouting from the ground called Habitat. The development, which is the first of its kind, has been specifically designed for people to live and work in the same place – and it's bringing that elusive quest for balance within reach. more
