With one of the year's most menacing days upon us, we decided it was only fitting to list three fantastic Halloween events occuring in Brisbane.

As Oktoberfest continues here in Australia (Brisbane is set for another round this coming weekend), we thought we'd take the opportunity to discuss the influence of German architecture in Australia.

While you may not come across it too often, German or German-influenced architecture does pop up throughout the country from the big cities to smaller rural communities. Given Australia's diverse history and the expansive number of immigrants who have come to call this place home, it's no surprise that architectural cues from around the world have also come define the way our country looks.

Whether it's in film, games or real life, there have been some truly spectacular moments that have all taken place on or revolved heavily around the vicitinity of rooftops.

Green walls, also known as vertical gardens, are one of those home features that most people probably don't think about. But while they may not always be at the forefront of our minds, they actually do offer some unique benefits. Whether it's giving a bland wall some much needed life or simply helping boosting one's happiness, here are four reasons why you should seriously consider having a green wall at home.

To this day, Queenslander homes continue to be built. While the methods and materials used in construction have changed, many modern-day Queenslanders have opted to maintain many of the traditional and iconic design cues of those that helped define the state's heritage look. In today's blog, we look at the key characteristics and decorative embellishments you're often guaranteed to find when looking at a heritage or modern-day Queenslander.

A few years back, Brisbane was in dire straits when it came to our dams' water levels and related usage restrictions. While things have since improved, the lessons of being more conscious about how much water we use is still important. In this blog, we'll be listing some very simple ways you can save water which, in turn, will reduce the amount you're paying for your water and help ensure we all have it for years to come.

There are a large number of homes throughout the Brisbane area that are steeped in history, many of which can be more than a century old. For those who live in a home they believe could be heritage-listed, they can apply for a listing with the Brisbane City Council. However, before jumping at the chance to do so, it's important to remember that the homes that end up on the heritage registry can also come with far more restrictions than an unlisted/ineligible home.
