Top 5 Must-Do’s for Something Different

By Kobi Facto

The Gold Coast is a dynamic mistress. Glittering beaches flanked by dense Hinterland, new restaurants and bars opening daily, a special event around every corner, shopping that even SJP would appreciate PLUS a vibrant cultural scene. We really do have it all.

However, how often do you try something out of the ordinary? Stray away from your usual weekend routine of breakfast, beaching and bars…

Heres our top 5 Gold Coast tips for SOMETHING DIFFERENT in October:

The Wilson Pickers play the SoundLounge
For your live music fix, head on down to the Soundlounge at Currumbin to see The Wilson Pickers. Four of Australia’s finest singer/songwriters – Ben Salter, Sime Nugent, Andrew Morris and Danny Widdicombe – and one of its most highly sought after multi-instrumentalists – John Bedggood make up The Wilson Pickers. They play original folk and country songs utilising bluegrass instrumentation.
The band has received two ARIA nominations for “Land Of The Powerful Owl” and “Shake It Down” and play major festivals throughout Australia. With tickets selling at just $20 their show is a MUST!

Russian National Ballet Theatre presents Swan Lake
Mark your diary for Tuesday, October 25 to catch this beautiful, full-length performance of the most cherished classical ballets of all time. The Russian National Ballet Theatre commences a tour of full-length classical performances of Swan Lake in over 30 cities across Australia from October and you can experience it for yourself at the Art Centre Gold Coast. Grab your tickets online:

Mt Tambourine Cooking School
Food, wine and a few laughs with friends all in the gorgeous Mt Tambourine Hinterland. Join French trained Chef, Terri Taylor in her private homestead for a four-hour, hands-on cooking class. Choose from French, Moroccan, Asian, Greek or Spanish Cuisines. Then at the end of it all, pull up a seat and feast on your culinary creations. Bon Appétit!

The perfect Pinup Girl
The timely beauty and seduction of vintage pinup girls…oh to be them.
Now you can! The Lindy Charm School For Girls specialises in vintage makeovers, pinup curls, picture perfect makeup, retro styling and photography. It’s the perfect Hens party, Bridal Shower, Team Builder or just a bit of fun.

Walk Together Gold Coast
Get your dose of community spirit on Saturday, October 22 and join Walk Together Gold Coast at the Broadwater Parklands to celebrate cultural diversity and unity. There will also be live entertainment, market stalls and a free BBQ lunch – can’t beat that!
