We have one bumper issue of haven this September and we can feel the buzz in our community as we kick off spring and events galore. Turn to our monthly calendar, market hub, travel, movie reviews or School’s Out guide to plan your fun this month.


It’s that time of year when we celebrate fatherhood and we are delighted to introduce you to some rad dads who have shared their parenting journey with the haven crew. Happy Father’s Day, boys!


If you are taking the men in your life out for a meal, take some tips from our family dining feature – we know how challenging it can be eating out with the kids (hello 5pm dinner reservations!) however it’s a great treat to have someone else do the cooking and cleaning!


If the dusting and de-clutter fairy skipped your house this season (definitely missed my house!), take some tips from our Spring Fling feature and get your home sorted one cupboard at a time. I am crushing on the new hues that are on trend this spring so can’t wait to hit the shops for some new pieces to brighten the house up!


Sit back and soak up our September issue of haven… Happy days!




haven is all about family, life and style in Brisbane's inner city suburbs, the Gold Coast, south to Byron Bay. We have been keeping parents in the know for over eight years, with fun, fresh and helpful stories that they can take tips from or treasure in their own library.
