What’s an RSA, and do I need one??
cocktails

You might have seen the acronym RSA popping up all over the place, particularly when it comes to hospitality jobs. RSA (Responsible Service of Alcohol) is required by law to work with and around alcohol all throughout Australia. Even if you are not working in a bar, you are still often required to have one, as most venues are licensed.

Some companies will let you apply for the job without an RSA, but you should get it as soon as possible. Some companies may even help pay for the course!🙂 That’d be lucky! Just ask your new employer about your options – they are there to help!

There are a few websites where you can take the RSA course; a popular one being The Hospitality Institute of Australasia. They offer courses from as little as $18. Click herefor more information. (Please note: Make sure to register for a QUEENSLAND [QLD] RSA, as this is the correct qualification for our state).

JUNE 17 Activities

❤️💕 Valentine’s Weekend in Brisbane! 💕❤️

Valentine’s weekend is coming up, with the special day happening on Tuesday, 14th of February. A lot of people will be celebrating across the weekend, so here are some of my suggestions for you guys to try! 🙂 And don’t worry if you’re single – these activities are just as perfect to enjoy with friends as well. ❤ ❤ #FriendshipIsJustAsImportant!

love-birds


🚲 Cycle around Brisbane:

The Brisbane City Council bike hire is a really convenient and affordable way to see our beautiful city from a different point of view. Membership is only $3 per month for students, and you can even use your GoCards to rent them! Why not ride along the riverside at sunset?  To sign up, click here.

 

🌿 Nature Lovers:

Hiking is another great idea if you like to do things differently. Brisbane is surrounded by beautiful rain forests and reserves that are perfect to explore with your loves. Take a look at our previous BLOG post about the best walking paths in Brisbane.

We also host some of the best waterfalls in Australia as well! One of my personal favourites is Curtis Falls down in the Gold Coast hinterlands. You can even cool off in the rock pools there after your walk! Take a look at other suggestions here.

 

💪 Adrenaline Lovers:

Do you need a little extra convincing to take your breath away this Valentine’s Day? Then this is sure to do it for you. The Story Bridge is one of three bridges IN THE WORLD that you can climb! You’ll have to get in quick to secure your spots, as this is a popular time to book. Tickets start from $99, and you can even get photos to remember the occasion. Check pricing info and availability on their website.

This is also bound to get the heart pumping – skydiving!!! There are several skydiving hot spots around Brisbane, so take a look at the website and choose one for yourself! Make sure to get plenty of photos!!

 

🍕 Dinner & Chill:

Brisbane riverside is filled with romantic and luxurious restaurants! Stretching from Eagle Street Pier through to South Bank, you’re bound to find something that fits your style and budget. Here’s a list of restaurants if you’re looking for something a little fancier. Or if you’re like me and just want to spend quality time, why not take a picnic blanket, some snacks and soak in the environment down by the South Bank esplanade? How lovely!

 

Night Lights:

This one you’ll need a car for, because there is no public transport available in the evenings. Or you could Uber! If you haven’t been to Mt Coot-Tha yet, now is the perfect time to take that special someone for a view to remember. See our beautiful city encased in its night lights from the top of the look-out. It’s truly breathtaking. Make sure to take a blanket or wear a coat as it can get windy up there!
Another suggestion to do after dark is to ride the Brisbane Wheel in South Bank. They also offer VIP styled booths, so you and your guest can spend some time in private. ❤ Price lists can be found on their website.

 

🐤 Stay on a Farm:

THIS is something I want to try! This website has a list of farms around Brisbane that offer Bed & Breakfast or private rentals for weekends and special occasions. Experience the best of the Aussie outback, while watching the stars in the arms of your love. Some of the farm stay locations even offer daytime activities such as helping milk the cows, feeding chickens and even horseback riding through the mountain ranges. Of course, this activity requires a car to get to and from the location, so be sure to research this as well!

 

😍 Movies with a twist:

It’s one thing to go to the movie cinema, but why not take it to the next level by attending an outdoor cinema?! The Moonlight Cinemas are located in New Farm Park, and is the perfect way to spend an evening under the stars while watching your favourite flicks. Tickets are $14 (with a student card), and movies show daily. Book your tickets online here, or download the schedule here.


❤ Have a wonderful weekend, everyone!! ❤
