Mr America Hot Dogs & Fries
Our inspiration came from the food trucks in the US. Australia hadn’t really grasped the idea of food trucks when we started out and I loved the flavours and creative designs of the food trucks in the States.
On a trip to the US I sampled hotdogs from all the world famous establishments and I’m proud to say that our hotdogs are up there with the best of the Americans.
Menu to suit all occations
- Authentic Brazilian BBQ
- Loaded Hotdogs/ Loaded Fries
Classic Ice Creams
The strains of Greensleeves tinkling out of a bright pink and white ice cream truck is bound to be nostalgic for any young or “old” Aussie kid. Ice cream is a hit with both old and young.
Using fully restored 1960s former Mr Whippy vans, which were imported from the UK, Classic Ice Creams trucks are a blast from the past. Traditional soft-serve vanilla ice creams are bound to bring you back to the halcyon days of your youth.
Classic Ice Creams come with a choice of just plain succulent vanilla flavour or with sprinkles, nuts, or dipped in chocolate or layered with sherbet, or with Flake and also with sundaes of different flavours.
The Floss Boss
The Floss Boss will put a smile on your face with his Fairy Floss (also known as Candy Floss) and his Snow Cones.
The Roots, Boots & Blues Fest organising team vowed the festival would not go ahead without spectacular coffee. Nothing to worry about - we got the best brew on the Gold Coast!
Opening in late 2014, Simple Coffee House is owned and operated by husband and wife duo, Simon and Jess Shanahan. After working in the local hospitality industry for many years we decided to take the plunge and open our own small business. Identifying a gap in the market, we decided to open a café that brought a mix of high quality coffee and fresh food to the Southport area, as well as a friendly and genuine customer experience. Our menus are seasonal and we pride ourselves on using many local suppliers, as well as using free range and organic ingredients wherever possible.
YESS CHEF will be there serving their gorgeous french crepes to celebrate BASTILLE DAY. Salmon...slow cooked pulled pork....strawberries and cream...nutella and dont forget our homemade chocolate, salted caramel and strawberry sauces....to die for. plus other sweet and savoury fillings. Be there from 10am - 4pm and maybe beyond! look forward to seeing you

Just One Lilly
I am a Gold Coast (Queensland Australia) local who loves designing and making beautiful jewellery. I was born a bower bird. I love things that are pretty, sparkle and make me feel good. My passion for semiprecious stones has gone on forever. I am in awe of the depth and breadth of their amazing colour.
I strive for quality, not quantity. It makes me feel so satisfied to see a customer’s happy face when they choose one of my pieces.
Originally starting out as hand made children’s clothing and accessories using genuine aboriginal designed and Australian themed fabrics. I have now expanded to include nursery sets, small quilts and personalised gifts and homewares, with a predominately Australian Theme.
Archie's footwear. Thongs with arch support.
✔ Designed by a young physiotherapist from Melbourne, Australia, to be an alternative to regular flat thongs.
✔ Look just like ‘normal’ thongs.
✔ Provide the same amount of support that you would find in a typical orthotic which helps support the foot and encourages a more optimal foot posture.
✔ Tighter strap reduces toe clawing and enables a more natural walking pattern which makes them the perfect thong for longer walks while travelling!
✔ Elevated heel section helps to reduce stress on the calf and Achilles tendon.
✔ Perfect for people who wear orthotics or for those who suffer from foot problems such as plantar fasciitis to wear in and around the house when they are not wearing their orthotics.
✔ Choice of thong for many of Australia’s elite athletes and health and fitness enthusiasts.
✔ Recommended by many of Australia’s leading Podiatrist and Health Practitioners.
✔ Made from a super soft and unbelievably comfortable foam material which makes them perfect for anyone that just wants a ridiculously comfortable thong, regardless of whether or not they have foot problems or if they require support from their footwear.
✔ Once you try them on you will never want to take them off!
✔ 100% Australian owned, family operated small business.

Red Cross - Trauma Teddies
Sometimes you just need a hug, right? That's why our much-loved Trauma Teddy is so appreciated by children and adults alike who are experiencing a traumatic situation – like having fled their home from a fire or flood, or going to hospital for surgery.
Our teddies provide comfort and help take people's minds off their worries. Trauma Teddies are lovingly hand-crafted – knitted, stuffed, sewn together and labelled – by Red Cross members and volunteers all over the country.
If you would like to join our army of Trauma Teddy makers and start knitting for charity, contact your local Red Cross office to get involved.
