The Weekend Series: pupper don’t preach – beat the summer heat at the best dog-friendly beaches

As blessed as we are to live in a place abundant with tropical vibes, it’s difficult to feel quite so stoked when you’re sweating so hard that your back resembles a quagmire (we’ve all been there). Imagine feeling that way but also being covered in fur – that’s what our poor pooches are dealing with! Cooling off is as easy as jumping into the nearest large body of water, but knowing where to go with dogs in tow can be tricky. To ease the pain for both you and your fuzzy mates, we’ve rounded up the best dog-friendly beaches within driving distance of Brisbane. more

Gear up with festive fun during Christmas in Brisbane

There’s no denying that Brisbane is a pretty rad city – our rep as a leader in culture plus our small town (read: friendly) vibe is further boosted when Christmas rolls around. Sure, we don’t have the snow factor going on, but Christmas in Brisbane is an affair magical enough to rival our northern hemisphere brethren. From charming pantomimes to large-scale light displays and building projections, there’s always something awesome to see and do when December arrives. The best part? Christmas in Brisbane won’t break the bank – these activities are totally free for everyone to enjoy. Rally the troops and prepare for the ultimate celebration of festive fun. more

Feast on Ristorante la Famiglia’s al prosciutto e rucola focaccia

Focaccia – the often-neglected cousin of pizza – is coming back into vogue thanks to the fantastic work of the kitchen staff at Ristorante La Famiglia. Every Wednesday the restaurant cures the hump-day blues by offering a range of freshly baked focaccia for a song. We’ve been lucky enough to get our hands on the family recipe used for Ristorante La Famiglia’s excellent dough and now you can have a go at whipping up your own at home with a hearty helping of prosciutto, fior di latte and rocket as topping. more
