Funniest thing in 2015: Activewear – SKITBOX

All female comedy group Skit Box’s ‘ACTIVEWEAR’ video went viral earlier this year. Making fun of every on who is guilty of wearing gym gear, without the gym. If you haven’t already seen it, or you’d like to laugh all over again WATCH IT HERE.

Best Guide to Travel in 2015: “A Tourists Local Guide To Sydney”


You would have seen a number of new Travel pieces on Eat Drink Play – spanning many different countries and events. This year, we were left wondering where to take a friend when they come to visit us in Sydney – which inspired the ‘Tourist’s local guide to Sydney’ article. Whether you take them to the iconic Opera House, to a cheap bar or along the coastal walk, there are many ways to show off Sydney to an out-of-towner! Read the Tourist’s Local Guide To Sydney
