The land of the long white cloud comes to Brisbane for this wine and cheese pop-up

PLEASE NOTE: Sorry cheese lovers, The Cheese & Wine of New Zealand event has sold out! Stay tuned for more cheesy events in the future. As well as sheep, adventure sports, cute accents and Lord of the Rings, one of the things New Zealand is most famous for is its wine. Our cool southern neighbours have long had a reputation for turning out some of the world’s top drops, so it comes as no surprise that Treasury Brisbane has decided to pay homage to the country’s offering with one of its famous wine and cheese nights. For the first time on Tuesday August 14 (EKKA Show Day eve), the entire ground floor of the iconic Treasury Hotel will transform into a wonderland of all things choice for Cheese & Wine Of New Zealand. more

She didn’t just sing the blues – she lived them.

Comfort food without the calories – learn how to cook winter delights at Laneway WV

As much as we adore Brisbane winter, the temperature drop comes with some serious temptation to tuck in to all of the naughtiest foods we can imagine. We’re willing to bet that if you haven’t spent a chilly night holed up on the couch devouring potato bake straight from the dish, at the very least you’ve fantasised heavily about it. While a little indulgence is fine in moderation, if we spend the next three months living off creamy pasta our guts may never recover. Enter the next instalment of Laneway WV’s green living month, a series of free clean eating workshops from the mind of Jacqui Toumbas. more

Tony Albert flips the script on race and representation with his Visible exhibition

Real talk – white Australia’s treatment and representation of its Aboriginal population is inexcusably bad. There’s no skirting around the fact that things need to change, but the nature of these issues is harrowing, heavy and can be hard to navigate. Someone adding a touch of humour to this poignant topic is Tony Albert, the award-winning Indigenous Australian artist who has carved his own unique path in our country’s cultural landscape. His latest exhibition Visible is coming to Queensland Art Gallery from June 2 to bring a different perspective to the conversation surrounding race and representation. more
