Underneath the ocean, to be specific. This Ariel-approved gallery is called the Museum of Underwater Art, and it recently gained a new exhibition, which melds real-life figures with big-blue artefacts. more

What an ideal scenario! more

Gather your pals and roll out the rugs – here are some of the top picnic spots across the Gold Coast
