What are your top tips for someone visiting Brisbane?
My number one to do and special tip if you’re visiting Brisbane would be to take a trip around 6pm to Mt Cootha. Whether it’s a romantic occasion or just by yourself, the magical views will blow you away and show off how beautiful Brisbane is and how it lights up like thousands of little jewels in the night.
What’s your favourite music festival?
The Red Deer Music And Arts Festival would have to be my favourite. It is like no other, held out in Mt Samson on an old Deer Farm. The atmosphere and vibes of this unique festival really captures all kinds of new and upcoming artists. The festival details specifically say to BYO your own couch. It’s pretty cool!
Best travel music track?
Would have to be Rhiannon by Fleetwood Mac. Stevie Nicks takes me somewhere else and allows be to dream and completely relaxes me when I’m traveling.
