Once again, we find ourselves battling through the sweltering heat of summer in Brisbane.
Faced with unforgiving humidity (cheers El Nina for the particularly wet and wild start) and scorching hot days, making the most of the weather this season has felt like a challenge. So, if you’ve been cooped up in the house wearing minimal clothing and standing in front of the aircon for the last couple of weeks, or if you are simply in need of some fresh inspo, this is your sign! It’s time to venture outdoors and explore our top tips for beating the heat this summer.
- A Dip at Streets Beach
Looking to take the kids somewhere they can cool down and have fun, without journeying all the way to the coast? Grab your swimmers, sunscreen, hat and some snacks, and head to South Bank for a refreshing dip at Streets Beach! Providing endless hours of free entertainment, and all within close proximity to restaurants, ice cream kiosks, public facilities and more, it’s the perfect place to beat the heat!
- An Ice Cold Acai Bowl from Coco Bliss
On a scorching hot summer’s day, there is nothing better than an ice-cold Acai bowl from Coco Bliss. Frozen, fruity, and topped with all of your favourite seasonal toppings, their bowls truly hit the spot for breaky, lunch or even a snack!
- Treat Yourself at Ice Dream
Sometimes, when the weather is really turning it up, you just need to cool off with a big ol’ ice cream from Ice Dream. Serving up delicious, dreamy, frozen desserts in flavours that are out of this world (hello Salted Chips and Krispy Kreme), they will have you cooled off and content in no time.
- Slurp on a Frozen Margarita at El Camino Cantina
Nothing says summer like 24oz of frozen, margarita goodness. When the weather is warm, head into El Camino Cantina for a fruity line up of fun and flavourful cocktails (served with delicious tacos and wings of course).
- Cool Off with a Boost Juice
Escape the heat and keep to those New Year’s resolutions, with a cold concoction from Boost Juice. Located just a stone’s throw from The Streets Beach, your weekend plans just got all the more cooler.
