    Bob Huth Park, Ashmore

    The dinosaur that sat atop Holly Brooke Carter playground at Bob Huth Park in Ashmore has long been an institution. Watching out over everyone who drove past, kids loved to spot it! The playground was finally updated in mid-2022, and much to everyone's delight, the dinosaur remains to entertain kids for another generation! The new playground is designed to cater for a range of ages, with both a big and small play structure now in place.

    Broadwater Parklands North, Southport

    The brand new playground at Broadwater Parklands has opened, and boy was it worth the wait! I'm calling it early and declaring that this is my new favourite park on the entire Gold Coast. Everything about this epitomises a family day out on the Gold Coast! Gorgeous views over the broadwater, a calm swimming spot for the kids, shady picnic spots and an EPIC playground that has some of the most amazing pieces that I haven't seen before at any of our parks.

    Where to donate your pre-loved goods on the Gold Coast

    Clutter is one of my worst enemies – I honestly feel like I can’t think straight when there is too much clutter around! I’m always looking for opportunities to clear out things that we no longer need or use.

Here I’ll share with you my tips for the wardrobe clear out and how to find a new purpose for your pre-loved goods that will support a good cause.
