FIVE THINGS TO DO IN BRISBANE | OCTOBER

SEE | The Italian Film Festival is on from October 1 - 18 at Centro James St and Barracks cinemas. I'm particularly keen on catching Leopardi, a biopic about the 19th century poet, radical thinker and philosopher.  

EAT | As the owner of an upstairs CBD shop I'm partial to supporting Brisbane city's hidden gems. Newest among them is Corbett and Claude, a charming and very cool laneway bar and eatery off Elisabeth St that pays homage to the historic Corbett Chambers building whose basement it occupies.

SHOP | I'm incredibly proud of my friend Jessy Cameron, whose opened her second Molten Store Trove at Carindale Shopping Centre at the beginning of the month. Her range of accessories is perfect for those who revel the etherial, the bohemian, and the obscure. 

EXPLORE | Open House Brisbane is on this weekend over the 10th and 11th of October. While there's a long list of buildings worth a visit, I'm most keen to explore the Spring Hill Reservoirs, where visitors can go underground to explore the arched brick interiors of the 19th century structures that held the city's water supply until 1962. 

LEARN | On Sunday, October 18th I'll be presenting a session as part of Peppermint's Magazine School. The full day session is designed to help creatives, makers, start-ups, established businesses and social entrepreneurs build better, more meaningful businesses that lead from the heart.
