Take a moment to think about what makes summer a great time for all. We’re provided with endless excuses to comfortably party late into the night and by day, the extra sunshine not only warms us up, but also pastes rosy cheeks and smiles across our faces. Our hands get clammy, but we cool down with a dip in the pool, mix icy cold drinks on our balconies and cook barbeques in our backyards with fresh produce. It’s this time of the year we really look forward to, cos we’re busy now, but in just a few weeks, we’ll have the reward of more time to do the things we want.

This year, throughout the summer season, we’ll be providing you with a range of inspired ideas perfect for the abundance of leisure time you’ll have up your sleeve.

Whether it’s taking some time out to relax and rejuvenate, making the most out of your party invitations or devouring cones of ice cream piled high, we’ve got you covered.

From food and drink ideas and holiday suggestions to warm weather fashion advice as well as music and reading lists, the Broadsheet Summer Guide covers all bases and has been tailored by our editors just for you.

To start with, we’ll be offering you some holiday inspiration with our Byron Bay Out of Towner, a recipe for zesty zucchini bruschetta perfect for hot summer nights and how to select the best pair of summer shorts or sandals, just to name a few.

Presented by Peroni, our summer guide is all about helping you enjoy our favourite time of the year. So stay in touch and don’t forget to keep on the look out for your ongoing stream of inspiration, right here at Broadsheet.
