This season, the team at M.V. Catalina have launched new menus from Van Fine Street Foods, Blue Plum and Something for Catering, plus new live acts and some of our old favourites.

Catalina is that gorgeous Hampton-inspired boat docked along Gympie Terrace (pictured).

Exploring domestic duties through art

Artist Kim Schoenberger will soon launch her latest exhibition that explores issues surrounding domestic life. The solo exhibition will be held at the Noosa Regional Gallery from 1 December to 21 January.This exhibition is titledDomestic Duties Chapter Three Sacred in the Domestic and is the third in a series of works exploring the humble tasks of the domestic and discovering the sacred. Schoenberg plays with semiotics and symbolism to create metaphors and portals of understanding in this final exploration of domestic duties.

Schoenberg takes a close look at the ephemera of household chores that connects communities and represents personal concepts of connection, hopes and dreams.Supported by the Queensland Government through Arts Queensland, this thought-provoking exhibition will be officially opened on Friday 1 December from 5.30pm at the Noosa Regional Gallery, 9 Pelican Street, Tewantin, with guest speaker Dr Ginna Brock. Everyone is welcome.Click here for more information.
