Loretta Ryan’s Great Day Out

Loretta Ryan is a Brisbane girl, born and bred. She lives in Nundah and is a proud “Nundah-ner”! Loretta is perhaps best known as the co-host of ABC Radio’s breakfast show, alongside Craig Zonca.

With her love of Brisbane and her job, it’s not surprising that Loretta’s idea of a great day out involves going to work in the mornings and talking to the people of Brisbane on the airwaves.

She freely admits that she is a “coffee snob” and so after work, the first thing she seeks is a good cup of caffeine. Her favourite cafe is Saabi in the northern Brisbane suburb of Hendra.

Another important element in Loretta’s great day out is exercise; in particular, hot yoga! Bikram Yoga on Sandgate Road at Nundah is her “local”.

And to cool down, a short drive further north to Shorncliffe is a favourite spot for Loretta to walk Tim, her border collie dog. Shorncliffe is Brisbane’s answer to a beachside suburb and the historic and beautifully refurbished Shorncliffe pier has been a favourite of families for generations, including Loretta’s. Tim the dog would wholeheartedly agree!
