Thank you for your support this year!

Since our launch in September, we have created over 100 articles and directory listings, all with original photography and content. We work hard each week to bring you the most original, most innovative and most popular our amazing city has to offer. And we’re so grateful to see this project blossom into the hub of information we want it to be.

Please don’t hesitate to email me your thoughts and recommendations for 2019. It’s going to be a fantastic year!



spotlight series

Our Spotlight series was one of the most visited on the site, despite only starting two months ago. We wanted a way to showcase amazing local entrepreneurs who didn’t fit into our Directory (ie. do not have a bricks and mortar business). Turns out you’re just as interested as we were!

You loved meeting Emily Moon of ELM Marketing as well as Hayley and Roger Mason (Settler Hives), Emily Richardson (Ruby Lane Flower Co), Eddie Stuart (Pepperberry Cakes), Candy Browne (Candy Browne Fitness), May Volp (Full Circle Farm), Grey Cawley (BrikMan Yoga) and, most recently, Ken and Shauna Kelly (Outback Mutts).

Stay tuned for more interviews next year, as we’ll be keeping this weekly column coming!

Wish List series

We wanted a way to showcase the products available throughout Toowoomba’s stores, as well as a way to introduce you to amazing local tastemakers. Our Wish List series leading up to Christmas was very popular, starting with Vanessa Heinemann (Profile Hair Designs), as well as lists from Aaron Bourne (Harold’s Finishing Touches), Grace Dewar (First Coat Studios) and Sophie Robertson (Myer Toowoomba).
