QV Melbourne is doing Christmas a little differently this year, doing away with your twee preconceptions and thinking a little outside the (gift) box. Throughout November and December the precinct is embracing the most wonderful time of the year with a festive (and free) party that combines Christmas traditions with bright colours, fun food and cutting-edge technology. From November 23 right through to December 21 QV Melbourne will be hosting Colour/Party, a bright, colourful celebration of the festive season. This isn’t your usual Christmastide pop-up. QV are skipping the kitschy decorations for a fun, innovative and interactive selection of events. Santa is cool, but QV want you to meet someone else this Christmas at Colour/Party. Introducing the QV Cane-Deer, a jolly augmented reality (AR) Christmas creature created by Sydney-based creative studio Vandal. QV Cane-Deer is a scruffy but cute reindeer who loves candy, dislikes One Direction and was pipped to the post to lead Santa’s sleigh by Rudolph. Head along to QV to meet Cane-Deer for yourself. He’s the official host for the party and will be popping up all over the Colour/Party activation: find him on the permanent big screen in QV Square where he’ll be inviting visitors to dance or play with him (or you can give him a big high five).

Summer events in South East Queensland
During summer in Queensland it’s all systems go on fun and frivolities. The southeast corner in particular becomes a flurry of activity, including sporting tournaments, music festivals, art exhibitions and much more. As 2018 ticks over to 2019, you can watch all the tennis action in Brisbane, let your hair down at one of the country’s biggest folk festivals, and enjoy a spot of polo by the beach. Culture buffs can peruse international works of contemporary art, while sports nuts sit it out for three days at the Gabba with eyes fixed on a cricket ball. In between the formalities there are plenty of other places to chill/explore (depending on your energy levels), including Brisbane’s inner-city beach at South Bank, which makes even locals feel like they’re on holidays; the hill with a view, Mt Coot-tha; and wine trails through the Granite Belt. You can also head offshore to Stradbroke, Moreton and Fraser Islands, the latter being the world’s largest sand island, or get lost in the hinterlands behind the Gold or Sunshine Coasts. Of course, the coasts are also ripe for beachy stuff, so bring your towel and a surfboard.
