DJ Carl Cox, Example, Hot Dub Time Machine to headline huge two-night concert at Vodafone Gold Coast 600

Some of the world's biggest music makers are set to descend on the coast this October for a massive two-night concert series as part of the Vodafone Gold Coast 600. While the iconic annual motorsport festival is very much about nail-biting racing, burning rubber and fast, loud Supercars, you'll certainly want to ditch the protective ear muffs after sundown when names like British DJ Carl Cox and festival superstars Hot Dub Time Machine hit the trackside stage to send their beats far and wide. more

Zero-alcohol wine alternative Non delivers flavour, body and complexity, minus the booze

Slowly but surely, the alcohol market is shifting in a number of ways. More people are seeking out higher-quality, locally produced booze and are drinking less of it. There's also a fair chunk of 30-somethings nowadays that choose to not drink alcohol at all. Fundraisers like Dry July and Ocsober are encouraging thousands of regular drinkers to try a month off the sauce. Plus, we can't forget the large cross section of social sippers that have come to the grim realisation that, no matter how many burgers and Beroccas we consume, we just don't bounce back from hangovers like we used to in our early 20s. These changing habits have forged a pathway for (quality) no-alcohol alternatives, and one of the newest arrivals in the booze-free sphere is Non. more

Go nude with APHA.LAB’s free-from deodorant

It's probably not something you've spent too much time thinking about but if you were to take a peek at the ingredients list of your deodorant, you might be perturbed to find some pretty heavy ingredients ranging from aluminium chlorohydrate to triclosan (the antibacterial chemical used to kill odour-causing germs on the skin) and phthalates galore. The good news is that Melbourne's APHA.LAB has crafted an all-natural alternative that actually works! more

Win a double pass to see Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark

It’s 1968 in America. Change is blowing in the wind … but seemingly far removed from the unrest in the cities is the small town of Mill Valley where for generations, the shadow of the Bellows family has loomed large. It is in their mansion on the edge of town that Sarah, a young girl with horrible secrets, turned her tortured life into a series of scary stories, written in a book that has transcended time – stories that have a way of becoming all too real for a group of teenagers who discover Sarah’s terrifying home. Inspired by the controversial novel of the same name, Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark is one twisted adventure that will have you jumping out of your seat. The Weekend Edition is giving you the chance to win one of ten double passes to see Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark. Enter below for your chance to win. Scary Stories to Tell in the… more

Airlift the essentials – Wing drone delivery takes flight in Logan

A quick trip to the shops is never just that – quick. Being caught out without the essentials is more of a hassle than we care to acknowledge, and sometimes we simply don't have the time to drop everything and make a mad dash to the supermarket. Well, one company is coming up with a nifty solution to this problem by using drones. Yes, those remote-controlled flying robots are the next wave in express delivery mechanisms, and Wing is bringing its up-and-coming drone delivery service to Logan. Out of milk? In dire need of a screwdriver? Crave a coffee like your life depends on it? Wing is your robotic guardian angel, dropping off these necessities at your door. more
