Following last month’s celebrations of the world’s 50 best restaurants, it’s time to narrow our focus and look to our homegrown champions in food and wine; especially wine. Aussie Wine Month has arrived to help fill your May with quality drops, an arrival marked earlier this week with a intimate feast at Sydney’s highly regarded Bentley, where the restaurant’s sommelier Nick Hildebrandt and Taras Ochota of Adelaide Hills’ ochota barrels went head-to-head with a friendly wine pairing competition for each course (Everyone won in the end because two different pairings of top Australian wines per course is way better than just one pairing, we’d say.)

Sneaker freakers and running junkies rejoice – seven years in the making, the Nike Air VaporMax has finally arrived. Landing this week in Australia, the shoe is now available to shop at Nike.com, Hype DC and Footlocker – and we’re sure these kicks will disappear pretty quickly. This year marks 30 years of the Nike Air Max – the original dropped in 1987 as the first shoe to showcase large, visible Air-cushioning – and for 2017, the VaporMax shakes things up with a new innovative design that boosts the sneaker’s performance, all while maintaining that iconic Air Max street style.
