Guys, it’s December next week, can you believe it? And you know what that means!
Boozy Christmas soirees, last-minute pressie shopping, too much sun, and general excessiveness is just around the corner. So, to make the most of your last full week of spring before silly season officially kicks in, we’ve found five sweet things to do on the Gold Coast this week.

New Brekkie And Lunch At Iron And Resin | All week long
There’s been a hellva lot of attention on Palmy lately, though just across the bridge, magic continues to brew in Currumbin. This past weekend, moto-lovers hang out Iron and Resin revealed renovations that included a new kitchen. So in addition to their smooth Will & Co. coffee and rad clothing threads, you can now stop in for a simple yet delicious breakfast or lunch on your way out to explore the valley. Slowly building up to a full menu, they’re teasing with tasty dishes named after their fave local roads and motorbike rides; think: Duranbah smashed avo on Currumbin sourdough, the Burringbar Beef Burger or Beechmont Burger with smokey BBQ chicken on the milkiest of milk buns. Not sure what day to head down? Any Given Sundays is their weekly Sunday (morning) sesh; bike or no bike, all are most welcome!
Where: 6 Stewart Road, Currumbin
Details: Breakfast and lunch served seven days from 6am – 2pm
NightQuarter’s First Birthday Bash | Friday, November 25 and Saturday, November 26

To celebrate, NightQuarter is throwing itself a massive first birthday bash this weekend, and y’all invited! Held over two nights, get your fill of tasty market eats while toe-tapping to the Cheap Fakes, Electrik Lemonade, Vaudeville Smash, and more. We’ll see you there!
