Which suburb do you call home?
What makes that suburb the best on the GC?
The Headland. Nothing beats the view from the Point up to Surfers Paradise. Every time I see it, I think to myself ‘how lucky am I to live here?!’
Fave place to stop, relax for 20 mins and enjoy a morning cuppa? And what treat is on the plate beside your hot bevvie?
Burleigh State School farmer’s markets on a Saturday. There are a couple of coffee vans – both are great. So are the oliebollen (Dutch doughnuts) which you can throw into your gob while watching the live music.
Fave Gold Coast casual dining location? What’s on the menu?
I’m all about picnics these days – Burleigh Headland with fish and chips from any of the fish and chip shops in Burleigh and a bottle of wine. Magic!
You’re planning a fun, local night out with your mates? Which three locations top your list and why?
Because I’m entertaining kids, the local markets are perfect. Great food, good beer and wine and kids are entertained. TICK. Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary Markets, Miami Marketta, BBQ Bazaar in Burleigh.
Best local spot for family hangs and why?
Echo Beach, which is the beach on the northern side of Tallebudgerra Creek. It’s stunning and never as packed as Burleigh Beach. Walk over the Headland and throw yourself into the clear waters. So good on a hot day and the calm water is perfect for kids.
Fave Gold Coast shopping destination?
James Street in Burleigh Heads. I dropped into the fruit and veg shop once to get an apple and went home with two dresses and togs from some of the other shops in the street. Dangerous for the wallet, but oh so awesome.
Complete this sentence: Only a Gold Coast local knows…
You should NEVER take a gamble with the parking inspectors in Burleigh. They will win EVERY time.
