This year has been filled with many unexpected surprises and the toll it has taken on everyone’s mental state has seen a lot of people wanting to start celebrating Christmas early, and let’s be honest, who can blame them! It’s important to focus on something positive in challenging times and the festive season and all its frivolity, coupled with the precious time spent with friends and loved ones is definitely something to look forward to, even if many of us will be catching up with family via video chat due to COVID. There are still many who will now be able to travel to visit each other since travel restrictions are slowly but surely lifting.
Our cover for our last edition of 2020 is graced with some of the vivacious MYER team at Cairns Central! After 23 years, MYER Cairns has been reborn and we are loving what’s in store. We can’t wait to share the redevelopment with you in this edition. But also, keep an eye on our social media platforms over the coming weeks as more elements spring to life in this significant development for our region. And don’t forget the famous MYER Giftorium for Christmas – it has a way of lifting everyone’s spirits with its magical creations – it is a MUST to check out!
In this edition we have captured all that Christmas brings to lighten up our lives including the CityLife’s Ultimate Christmas Gift Guide, filled with the best local gifts on a budget or if you’d like to indulge, we’ve got you covered in that department too!
We are also excited to showcase the many wonderful establishments in FNQ in our STAYcation feature. It’s jam packed with great ideas for young families wanting to holiday together, couples needing a much needed getaway and even places to go if you’d like to spend time away with a large group of your nearest and dearest. From the Atherton Tablelands to Port Douglas, and every locale in between.
Our HealthLife feature encompasses all the non-COVID health news and shines the light on the people doing such great things in their field. And let’s not forget our HomeLife feature full of all the people and products you need to make your home look the goods for all your visitors throughout the holiday season, including some special hand-picked cocktail recipes to get you in the festive mood no matter where you choose to celebrate!
2020 may have thrown a few curve balls at us, but one thing is for sure we are a resilient community with so much to offer the world and the forward bookings for our southern neighbours wanting to visit and those aboard is testament to the strength of our tourism industry and the phenomenal destination we are so lucky to call home. We don’t know about you, but we can’t wait to kick off our heels and enjoy some much needed downtime this Christmas and New Year, the year sure has been exhausting.
From all the CityLife Magazine™ team we wish you and yours the most splendid Christmas filled with many treasured memories. A big heartfelt THANK YOU to every single advertiser, contributor and supporter of our reinvigorated multi-media publication. You really do make what we do worth it! Stay safe and don’t forget to Keep It In Cairns and #DOITWITHALOCAL wherever you can.
