Kick back with South Bank’s Unfold

Lounging back onto a grassy knoll is a dreamy way to spend an afternoon – that is until your limbs have their first uncomfortable encounter with pins and needles or a group of wayward ants. South Bank’s latest initiative Unfold is one that has the comfort of its visitors at the forefront, with 50 moveable chairs to be released into South Bank’s open spaces for the use of its guests. The colourful sling-back chairs can help provide a comfy rest should you be voyaging to the riverside precinct for study, work or just a stroll through its greenery. The chairs will be available to aide weary legs from 10:00 am each day and can be moved wherever you desire within the Little Stanley Street precinct.   more

Get up early and go garage sailing

Gone are the days where rummaging through other people’s seconds resulted in red cheeks. Op shops, car boot sales and garage sales were potential social disaster zones as a child, for fear of running into someone from school while your parents scoured for a bargain amongst others’ junk.
