The cutest button on the block
Wendy Rice – Executive PA to the General Manager
How long have you been at QT Gold Coast: I have been here since GCI days and saw the whole transformation to QT Gold Coast, it was amazing to be part of that!
Best thing about your job: My role has evolved many times over, I like that it is not too structured and lends to being involved in all areas of the hotel, including writing up the daily chalkboard
Your Gold Coast Hot Spots: Burleigh Markets is the best for fruit & veg on Sat morning. And being vegetarian love Mandala Organic Arts Café at Mermaid Beach.
Your next adventure: A Meditation Retreat in Bali in May, bring it on!!
Some fun / quirky about yourself people may not know: I collect antiques and old things and my friends say it’s like coming to an antique shop when they visit my home. I have been into old things since I was young and can spend hours (literally days) fossicking antique, second hand and junk shops. I did an antique restoration course and since then have been collecting (too) many projects.
What are you loving right now? (could be a meal, song, person, object, anything): One of my most fave things in my home is a gorgeous old Australian depression era cabinet hand built probably around 1920-30s, using old timber off-cuts, golden circle crates making up the back and wooden cotton spool handles. It is stunning!
