No, no Brisbane – unlike those shots you slammed in Stockies during your freshie years, this is one Belvedere-filled time you won’t regret. Channelling beachside vibes to a tee thanks to sun-drenched decks and an easy, breezy beer garden, The Belvedere also boasts a modern Australian menu, with chilli prawn pizzas and fresh seafood parcels perfectly paired with cocktail balloons and premium wines on tap.

Under the boardwalk, and down by Preece’s lies the chorizo gnocchi your body’s been waiting for.

The salty air’s taking care of your lungs, but you’ll need Cactus Jack’s spicy Tex Mex to make your heart race. Spice up your life with their jalapeño poppers or take the heat with their house-special chimichanga, chock-full of Mexican pork, achiote chicken, or smoky chipotle prawn alongside sour cream, ranchero salsa, rice, salad, and good ol’ guac.
