Hiking the Coomera Circuit, Lamington National Park

We recently hiked the Coomera Circuit in the Lamington National Park and boy was it worth it! It had been a long time since we did a long and strenuous hike. I seem to recall our last long hike was the multi-day Salkantay Trek in Peru, way back in September 2019! I can’t believe it’s been that long, but I suppose breaking a leg and being locked down within a 5...

A Quick Guide to Tamborine Mountain

The first time I visited Tamborine Mountain, I was just 20 years old and traveling around Australia on a Contiki tour. I will always remember my trip to Tamborine Mountain.

Our Four-Day Itinerary to Tropical North Queensland

The last time I set foot in Tropical North Queensland, I was twenty-three, a backpacker and I had barely any money with me. I stayed at hostels out of necessity, and eating out in restaurants was definitely not something I could afford. All of the money that I had, I spent on trips visiting the Great Barrier Reef and the rainforest. All things considered, I did quite...
