What’s on in Brisbane this weekend

Can we get a hefty Amen for short weeks? Although a Wednesday public holiday definitely isn't ideal, it's nice to come back to work knowing there are only about 16 working hours left between you and freedom. From trailer trash pageants to beery good marriage equality parties, we've rounded up what's good to do on the August 17–20 weekend in Brisbane. more

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

Camp Hill Antique Centre and TART Cafe settles in to its brand-new digs

Though the closure of the Woolloongabba Antique Centre broke our hearts, we barely had time to mourn before Camp Hill Antique Centre opened and established itself as Brisbane’s new home of eclectic, pre-loved furniture and accessories. In addition to a gargantuan space filled wall to wall with all manner of paraphernalia, Camp Hill Antique Centre is also home to TART Cafe – a fetching mid-century inspired diner that plates up the perfect fare to fuel your imminent shopping spree. more

What’s your flavour? Tastes like Sunshine uncovers Brisbane’s rich and exciting food stories

Here at The Weekend Edition office, one of the quickest and easiest ways to capture our attention is with food. We love everything to do with it and how totally engaging it is – from the feeling of juice running down your chin after biting into a ripe strawberry to the sound bacon makes on a hotplate, the food experience is so much more than just what you taste. It turns out we aren’t the only ones who love to nerd out over what we’re eating – the Museum of Brisbane has got a whole darn exhibition dedicated to the good stuff. Running from August 18 to November 12, Tastes like Sunshine is an all-in sensory exploration of Brisbane’s rich and ever-evolving food story that is sure to get you salivating. more

The Roadtrip Series: uncover the other side of coastal gem Currumbin

We’ll let you in on a little secret – the best of both worlds isn’t just a really catchy song from Hannah Montana. This adage also perfectly describes Currumbin, the lush southern Gold Coast town that offers up pristine shores and lush rainforest in equal measure. Most people are quick to associate Currumbin with stunning beaches and a world-class wildlife sanctuary (which definitely isn’t a bad thing), but there is so much more to this coastal gem than what you see on the surface. We’ve uncovered some of the best things to see, do, taste and experience in Currumbin that go beyond hitting the surf. more

The best spots to get a feed before you fly

The last-minute preparation routine for a holiday is serious business. First, you’ve got to triple check that you’ve packed everything. Second, you need to check-in in advance (to avoid the lines, of course). Third, you’ve got to give yourself enough time to get to the airport itself. This isn’t even including other minor things like reminding your neighbour that they agreed to collect your mail, ensuring that your out-of-office e-mail responder is on and that you’ve put both bins out. With all of this on your plate, it’s easy to forget to eat. If you arrive at the airport with a Boeing-sized hunger, fear not – Brisbane Airport has got the goods when it comes to pre-take off eats and tipples. We’ve hand picked five of the best spots to snack at Brisbane Airport’s Domestic Terminal for breakfast, lunch and dinner to ensure you start your holiday the right way. more

Help your furry friends by feasting this RSPCA Cupcake Day

Let’s be real, our lives would be terrible without animals – the joy a pet can bring cannot be quantified. The only thing that could possibly compare to the feeling of patting a happy puppy is eating some scrumptious cupcakes, which is why the RSPCA’s Cupcake Day is such an important event. It’s time to get your bake on, invite some friends around and raise funds to help rescue and rehabilitate the thousands of animals that the RSPCA shelters yearly. more
