Top 10 things On in Brisbane this week 19/05/2019
This week’s so lux you’ll need to purge after. The sight of rich people swanning around in boats should make you sufficiently nauseated enough.

9) Strange Bird Cocktails
What: Appreciate the dazzling views from the River Deck whilst sampling key varieties from the ‘Strange Bird’ Granite Belt wine selection and feasting upon a selection of meticulously prepared canapes.
