HOT GIVEAWAY: Enrich Brisbane

Towards the end of this month, Brisbane will play host (for the first time in fact) to a festival of sorts, celebrating food, wine, coffee, the outdoors and lifestyle in general.


Enrich Brisbane is an innovative, interactive showcase that steps outside the boundaries of your typical ‘food and wine’ expo by incorporating a whole lifestyle approach that will gives visitors a variety of interesting exhibitors, speakers and a wide array of interactive demonstrations.  Interested yet??


The Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre will be home to the Enrich Brisbane event, being held over 3 days, from Friday 30 March to Sunday 2nd April, and here at BNE: HOT or NOT, we’ve got a couple of double passes burning holes in our pockets, ready to be drawn for a couple of lucky readers.


But first, a bit more on the Enrich Brisbane program to wet your appetite a little….


Queensland chefs Alastair McLeod (Brett’s Wharf) and Ben O’Donoghue (South Bank Surf Club) will be joined by industry figures and personalities like Ian Parmenter (Consuming Passions) and Lyndey Milan (Australian Women’s Weekly) to bring to life the many exciting experiences to be had at Enrich Brisbane.  The 3 day program, held in your usual expo-type show rooms and stages, boasts a colourful program spanning many different cuisines, influences and settings……what to do, how to do it, who to do it with and where to do it……you get the picture.


Tickets  to the event will set you back about $30 per day and the admission fee entitles you to a tasting glass with lanyard and holder, free wine tasting and sampling of other little goodies.  However, for 2 of our readers entry will be free!


We’d like to hear about your most enriching experience in Brisbane – be it dining, sport, leisure or location….tell us what places or experiences you would recommend to Brisbane visitors and locals alike, and you could win!  Leave your comments here, on the facebook page http://www.facebook.com/bnehotornot, or via twitter @bnehotornot and you’ll go in the draw to win a double pass to Enrich Brisbane.  The winners will be announced on Monday 19th March, so be quick!!

  1. My most enriching experience in Brisbane would be discovering the Brisbane Polish club in Milton. Ever since my jaunt to Poland and all around Europe in 2009, I had been craving the hearty, full flavour meals from Poland. I was so happy to come home and discover that the Polish club right in my backyard serves authentic Polish food too! So cheap and so tasty, I’d recommend a visit if you’ve never been. It is super casual so don’t expect a “night out” just a great tasting feed!

  2. My first visit to Brisbane was as backpacker in 2005 when the wonderful old Regent theatre on Queen Street was still open.
    The amazing interior, the rich smell of old wood and great coffee, the lovely faded fabric on the chairs and the luck of bumping into Geoffry Rush promoting his new movie created what was definately an enriching experience.
    I would definately reccommend visitors go there, but they can’t any more, so sad.

  3. Our favourite Brisbane experience is dinner at Quan Thanh Vietnamese @ West End. So delicious, cheap and a really fun atmosphere! We must go there 6 or more times each month.

  4. So proud of our little river city and where it is today. For a truly enriching day in Brisvegas: take a cruise on a city cat from Hamilton to St Lucia; enjoy an evening BBQ on the kangaroo point cliffs; visit one of the many markets that house some of the best local producer goods; dine and shop in precincts like, Oxford St Bulimba; Boundary Street West End and Nash St Rosalie; and take in a stroll along the Brisbane River cultural precinct allowing for a visit to the GOMA, State Library, QPAC, and QLD Museum! Truly Enriching!
