Take a peek at Burleigh’s new design-led creative space Sun House Studio

On the whole, working from home is great. The lack of any kind of daily commute, the ability to sneak a siesta at lunchtime and wearing pyjamas all day are pretty high up there on the list of perks. The pitfall, of which there is really only one, is that it can be pretty lonely at times. It's a feeling that Marissa Bowden, one half of The Village Markets, knows all too well. It was this exact sentiment that was the catalyst for Sun House Studio, a gorgeous new creative space in Burleigh Heads. more

Dream in colour at the city’s first pop-up Golden Ticket Motel

Let's be honest, hotel art can be pretty questionable at times. Usually depicting some kind of abstract ocean view, the generic pieces are hung on plain walls and then largely forgotten. The Golden Ticket Motel is the antithesis of that. What the heck is the Golden Ticket Motel we hear you ask? Boy, are we glad you did ... more

Spending lazy afternoons eating, drinking, wandering stretches of white sand and gazing into cerulean water. If you gravitate towards the latter category, allow us to introduce you to Houston Currumbin.  more

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
