Dive right in to the coast’s new creative design den, The Ocean Club

There's something uniquely special – and terrifying – about coming up with a completely out-of-the-box idea. On one hand, you're creating something super exciting that's brand-new in the space. On the other hand, there's nobody that you can look to for guidance as what you're creating hasn't been done before. The inspiring duo behind The Ocean Club know this feeling all too well – however, the long slog to get here has well and truly paid off. What Madison and Reuben, creative directors behind The Ocean Club, have achieved is a dreamy new design space, bringing something completely unique to the Gold Coast. more

One such show that's well worth your time and ticket is Return to the Dirt, a new play coming to Queensland Theatre this spring from October 16 to November 6.
