The Oztent Group remains an Australian owned and operated family business, providing Australian and international adventurers with a range of tents and outdoor furniture and accessories, designed to create an awesome camping experience. The Oztent Group opened operations in the USA in 2014. ABOUT THE ORIGINAL 30 SECOND TENT: Oztent is the original, patented 30-second tent. Its unique internal frame and hinge-mechanism eliminated the need (and time) required to thread poles to keep the tent up. Along with its innovative design, Oztent also features heavy-duty materials to withstand harsh Australian conditions.

With a few simple and practical methods, you can create spaces where positivity can flourish. Justine Wilson says, “At Vault Interiors we strongly believe that having a tidy, neat organised space can make you fall in love with your home again, and you should feel lighter mentally too. Shifting the energy of a space can totally transform your home and change your mindset at the same time. It can be life changing. “If you haven’t read Marie Kondo’s book or seen her Netflix show yet, now is the time to jump on the bandwagon. Not only are her methods easy to implement but they really do work and will change the way you look at tidying up, turning it from a chore into a way to inject new energy into your home,” adds Justine. Now that autumn is here, there’s no better time to organise your home! Justine’s top 5 organisational tips: Know your intentions. Know how you want to use the spaces in your home will ultimately help you decide what items are important. It will also make your home a positive place to live, and have positive energy for visitors. Decide which items “spark joy”. Marie’s methods are built on the philosophy that a home should be filled with only those items that make you happy – and I totally support this. Deciding what you love and can’t live without is the hardest part, but once you can do it, the rest is a breeze! It’s ok to keep things, so long as you love them. Store things correctly. With items such as clothing, store them in a way you can clearly see what you have maximises space and allows for easy access. When it comes to other miscellaneous items, sort into piles of keep and throw away. Sort your items by category, not location. This can make the process overwhelming, so focus on one category at a time. Use boxes and containers to store essential papers and books to make your space look neater and it will allow you to find things more quickly. Leave sentimental items until last. Items such as photographs and personal objects are often the hardest to let go, so sort through them last when you’ve had plenty of practice separating non-sentimental items. “Tidying up can not only help you reconnect with your space, but it can help you start to consider the way you accumulate belongings in the future,” adds Justine. About Vault Interiors: Vault Interiors are a dedicated team of property stylists who specialise in unlocking the potential of each and every property they step into. Whether it be styling for the purpose of selling a property or furnishing a client’s new dream home or investment, the team not only deliver jaw dropping results but save time and money with their hassle-free complete furniture packages. www.vaultinteriors.com.au Adrenaline Pumping Gold Coast Holiday Activities From Cheap and Affordable Gold Coast Airport Car Hire Rentals Companies in Queensland 2019-03-05T22:02:19Z adrenaline-pumping-gold-coast-holiday-activities-from-cheap-and-affordable-gold-coast-airport-car-hire-rentals-companies-in-queensland With holiday time almost here, thousands of Australians will be streaming to the Gold Coast. Some may just want to chill on the beaches or stroll through stores, but an increasing number are set on letting adrenaline pump out the cobwebs after a year at the office desk, according to Darryl Essington-Wilson, CEO of Gold Coast Family Car Rentals. He sees the Gold Coast adrenaline and extreme activities, already very popular, becoming increasingly so during the Gold Coast’s current tourism industry boom, and the venues and areas where they take place may well be the most visited destinations for those driving his rental cars this holiday season. Choosing the Hard Way Visitors can enjoy their holidays the hard way, or the easy way, says Darryl. They can take in dramatic views of scenic islands and beaches from hot air balloons as the sun rises or sets, or take scenic flights in seaplanes or helicopters. They can also go the kayaking route, take exhilarating hikes and participate in many other outdoor activities. However, more visitors are tending to go for the challenge of high speeds, scary heights or super physical activity, whether it’s on or in the water, up in the sky, on solid ground or somewhere in-between. And, according to Darryl, the Gold Coast is making sure that the toughest challenge for visitors will be in choosing which of the many options available to enjoy first. Up, Up and Away Rather than settling for a seaplane or balloon, those chasing the adrenaline buzz may choose to accept the challenge of tandem sky-diving (the first minute of which consists of free-fall) from 14,000ft above Kirra Beach at Coolangatta; or see what it’s like free-falling the whole way in an indoor wind tunnel at Surfers Paradise. For those who want to hang around between sky and ground, Darryl suggests heading for the trees. The Canyon Flyer guided tour at Mt Tamborine sees brave travellers suspended on zip lines 60m high above the Cedar Creek Canyon, and zipping along at speeds of up to 70km/h. The Tree Top Challenge at Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary can occupy up to 3.5 hours of adrenaline pumping time for the adventurous ones in the family, whilst others spend their time enjoying the many animal encounters that the Sanctuary is famous for. Darryl says travellers can alsoget the feeling of being suspended in the air by going parasailing (tandem or alone) behind a powerful boat while surrounded by the views of Surfers Paradise and the Gold Coast Islands. Hitting the Water A high-speed Jet-Boat ride will certainly add a splash of excitement to the day. It starts at Surfers Paradise and speeds along the Gold Coast Broadwater, complete with 360-degree spins and other adrenaline-inducing tricks. There’s also the chance to fly about 10m off the water and at a speed of up to 45km/h while powered by a jetpack or enjoy the jet-propelled Flyboard experience both on and above the water. Don’t Forget the Kids The Gold Coast has plenty of activities for kids, says Darryl. Many of the theme parks that are becoming synonymous with Gold Coast tourism, like Sea World, Movie World, Dreamworld, andWet‘n’Wild water world, and Game Over offer a selection of rides, thrills and activities both outdoors and indoors. Youngsters can also go whizzing around on wheels on dry ground; or walk, turn, run and slide across the water inside giant water balls at the Royal Pines Resort in Benowa, near Surfers Paradise. These adrenaline-pumping activities found at Surfers Paradise, Coolangatta and Mt Tamborine are all within easy reach of Gold Coast city in a rental car from Gold Coast Family Car Rentals, with travelling times of no more than 30 minutes. And booking one of Darryl’s cars is just as easy - To find one to travel in the Gold Coast area, and particularly from Coolangatta to Surfers Paradise, and including the Gold Coast Airport, make sure to book onlinewith Car Hire Gold Coast or Gold Coast Airport Car Rental, or call + 61 7 5508 3333.

The Nouvelle Double Effect range features a 5-step system with all products providing a double effect. Petra Kostos says, “These products really are amazing and it’s great to have some truly innovative products in the range in terms of not only formulation but the application technique. The Nutri-Foam (Leave in Conditioning Treatment) is a real stand out for me, it’s one of those products that once you try it you never go back.” The Nouvelle Double Effect 5-step care collection includes: Step 1- Nouvelle Double Effect Shampoo 300ml – RRP: $24.99 Key Ingredients: Keratin & Hops (Humulus Lupulus Cone Extract). This shampoo gently cleanses, moisturisers and nourishes the hair and scalp while strengthening each strand from the inside. During heat styling the micro particles of keratin amino acids penetrate into the depth of the inner layer of the cuticle to restore the natural protein. This also helps to prevent brittleness, dryness, porosity and elasticity. Step 2- Nouvelle Double Effect Mask (Conditioner) 250ml – RRP: $24.99 Key Ingredients: Keratin & Hops (Humulus Lupulus Cone Extract). To be used on the mid-lengths and ends only, this nourishing formula contains natural, but intensely active components, so the result will be noticeable after the first application. With long-term use, ingredients in the mask create a therapeutic effect due to the comprehensive strengthening to the cortex of the hair and its cuticle. Step 3- Nouvelle Double Effect Nutri Fluid (Instant Keratin-based Regenerator) 75ml – RRP: $29.99 Key ingredients: Hydrolyzed Keratin, Hops, Cyamopsis Tetragonoloba (Guvar bean) and Glycerin. Petra’s favourite product in this line, Nutri Fluid reproduces hair and is formulated to specifically target all broken or damaged areas. For application, start with damp hands, only use a small amount, then rub into the crown area and ends, wherever the damage has been caused by either bleaching or colouring. Step 4- Nouvelle Double Effect Diamond Drop (Split End Prevention) 75ml – RRP $29.99 Key Ingredients: Camellia Sinensis Leaf Extract (Anti-Oxidant for your hair), Gossypium Herbaceum (Cotton Extract allowing hair bonding around the cuticle to provide elasticity and strength). This luxurious serum can be used straight after the Nutri Fluid. Apply a small amount, rub into hands to activate and apply to the mid-lengths down prior to heat styling. Then apply as a finishing product for amazing shine. Step 5- Nouvelle Double Effect Nutri Foam (Leave in Conditioning Foam) 200ml – RRP $29.99 Key Ingredients: Theobroma Cacao (cocoa) Seed Butter (Hydrolyzed Cocoa Butter), guar hydroxypropyltrimonium chloride (Guar Gum to leave hair full of moisture). This is the HERO product in this collection and really gives a WOW factor after use. This is not a styling mousse/foam, this is a daily use no rinse, leave in conditioning foam, providing incredible moisture for dry, damaged and porous hair. This can be used on damp or dry hair depending on how damaged your hair is. Nouvelle’s Double Effect care collection is available from www.nhbs.com.au or local salons.

NEW GRUFFALO AUGMENTED REALITY EXPERIENCE TAKES UP RESIDENCE AT CURRUMBIN WILDLIFE SANCTUARY 2019-02-28T23:03:13Z new-gruffalo-augmented-reality-experience-takes-up-residence-at-currumbin-wildlife-sanctuary Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary General Manager Michael Kelly said this iconic character will bring joy to thousands of kids at the Sanctuary, in an Aussie-first, that utilises augmented reality (AR) technology in a natural environment. “We have been working with Magic Light Pictures to create our brand-new outdoor experience; one that will give kids the chance to see much-loved characters come to life in a new way. “This initiative sees us combining state-of-the art technology with nature, keeping the kids active and entertained at the same time.” The Gruffalo Trail is free with entry and families can download the complimentary Gruffalo Spotters app and follow clues through an interactive trail. For those wanting to step away from technology, there are heaps of fun interactive experiences along the trail to enjoy. “The self-led trail will be packed with fun facts about the characters from the book. Once you have spotted the characters, the app will bring them to life in 3D animation.” The app allows you to take photos next to the characters which are then automatically added to your gallery. This makes it easy to share your favourite pictures via social media using the hashtag #GruffaloSpotter. The Gruffalo picture book has sold more than 13.5 million copies worldwide, and has been portrayed on stage, in an Oscar nominated film and now in augmented reality. The much-loved children’s book celebrates 20 years this year. “We hope that families with young children will enjoy visiting the Sanctuary for an exciting adventure like no other, and one that they can only experience here on the Gold Coast,” Michael said. The Gruffalo licensing deal with Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary was brokered by Australia’s Merchantwise Licensing on behalf of Magic Light Pictures. The Gruffalo Trail and The Gruffalo Spotters app launches at National Trust Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary on 5 April 2019. The Gruffalo Spotters app is free to download.
