Question Time – John Harrison, Eat Street Northshore’s Co-founder

Eat Street Northshore’s Co-founder John Harrison steps up to answer InQueensland’s 10 questions.

What was the highlight of 2023 for you?
No more COVID restrictions. Eat Street Northshore along with the entertainment, event, hospitality, tourism, and airline industries suffered tremendously during restrictions. It so good to see so many international tourists flocking back into Queensland and enjoying our enviable lifestyle.

If you could have done something differently last year, what would it be and why?
Spend more time with the family, it’s been a hectic year for most people in small business.

Who is someone to watch for in 2024?
The next President of the United States.

What is your most vivid memory of the festive holidays?
Spending Christmas overseas in the snow, such a huge contrast to our hot and humid conditions. Our northern hemisphere neighbours know how to celebrate Christmas.

Do you have any unique or funny holiday traditions?
At Christmas the whole family including the dogs and cat get dressed up in Christmas themed pyjamas.

What’s your New Year’s resolution for 2024?
I have a fixed wing and helicopter pilot’s licence and I’m hoping to find the time to do some more flying. I’m also very keen to get more involved in philanthropic activities.

If you could have anyone from any time period attend your Christmas lunch, who would you choose?
Amelia Earhart, Tom Cruise, Wim Hof and Richard Branson.

Coastal holiday or city holiday?
Coastal, just love being near the water, looking at it or swimming. You just can’t beat our amazing lifestyle here in Southeast Queensland.

What are you looking forward to in 2024?
A strong, solid year for Eat Street Northshore. We’ve got so much entertainment planned; the calendar is chock-a-block full of special events and celebrations, can’t wait.

Do you have a summer book or podcast you can recommend?
My favourite podcast, The Diary of a CEO with Steven Bartlett.
