Your bucket list for June in Brisbane

It's comfort food season, baby!

At last, our annual excuse to rug up, consume excessively and exercise minimally has arrived: winter! In celebration of the delicious time of the year, here are some tasty ways to spend your June…

Sky High Sundays | Iris 

Brisbane’s newest rooftop bar Iris has introduced some juicy weekly sessions, christened Sky High Sundays, kicking off weekly at 2 pm! There’s live entertainment, those incredible city skyline views, and the menu of Mediterranean-inspired snacks and drinks to sink your teeth into. Our plan? Catching sunset with Cantabrian anchovies on tomato migas bread and crème fraîche, and a few round of Iris’ soda cocktails!

Regional Flavours – Grazed and Grown | South Bank

At long last, beloved foodie festival Regional Flavours is returning on the weekend of June 18-20, with a new three-part, three-day format kicking of with Grazed and Grown! Expect to browse stalls from producers and makers from within 250km of Brisbane including fresh produce, spirits, wine and beer, condiments and preserved goods and loads more. There’ll be live entertainment, delicious food by South Bank’s O.G. venues, and so much to explore. Learn more about what to expect here.

Sunday roast | Beerhaus

You know it for its fab German-inspired good times and bier, but you’ll LOVE Beerhaus for this creation: every Sunday from 12 pm, you can nab a piece of slow-roasted pork belly with golden crackling, glazed Dutch carrots, creamy mash, red cabbage, Yorkshire pudding, apple compote and onion gravy for just $20 with any drink purchase! Check out the rest of the agenda here.
