Which sub­urb do you call home? Burleigh. What makes that sub­urb the best on the GC? The strong lo­cal com­mu­nity vibe and lo­cal busi­ness sup­port­ing each other. Also the beau­ti­ful morn­ing walks along the es­planade. Fave Gold Coast ca­sual din­ing lo­ca­tion? What’s on the menu? Rick Shores for lunch. The best Bug rolls you’ll find any­where. You’re plan­ning a fun, lo­cal night out with your mates? Which three lo­ca­tions top your list and why? I’d start with drinks in the af­ter­noon at Hel­lenika Rooftop bar (the view of the hinterland is amaz­ing), then head to Iku Yak­i­tori bar for some de­li­cious juicey Yak­i­tori and a few whiskies and end the night at Lock­wood Bar for their un­be­liev­able cock­tails! Fave place to stop, re­lax for 20 mins and en­joy a morn­ing cuppa? And what treat is on the plate be­side your hot bevvie? Def­i­nitely Com­mune Es­presso! We love walk­ing the pram down to the café ev­ery morn­ing with our lit­tle bub. We al­ways try to sit out­side in the sun­shine in the morn­ings with a de­li­cious hot fil­ter cof­fee (and a ve­gan pro­tein ball too!). Best lo­cal spot for fam­ily hangs and why? Burleigh Hill. If you’ve ever been there… you’ll know ex­actly why it’s a fave, It’s so beau­ti­ful. Fave Gold Coast shop­ping des­ti­na­tion? James Street, Burleigh Heads. They have ev­ery­thing you need! Com­plete this sen­tence: Only a Gold Coast lo­cal knows... Where to find Ping Pong on a Sun­day!!
