5 Reasons You Should Visit Heron Island

Living in Australia we are fortunate to be so close to one of the world’s eight natural wonders, the Great Barrier Reef. But because like many we travel more overseas that we do in our own country, it had been many years since our latest visit to the reef; fourteen years in my case. We […]

Freycinet National Park’s Best Day Hikes

After such an amazing time hiking in the Cradle Mountain, we had fallen head over heels in love with the Tasmanian wilderness. We knew we had to go back to discover new places and more beautiful scenery. Tasmania has so much to offer which makes it hard to choose where to go. We were heading there over the labour day weekend […]

Lord Howe island is always a quiet haven. Only […]

Four days of wildlife: Escape to Kangaroo Island

For most visitors to Australia, seeing our beautiful wildlife is high on the list of things to do while they’re here. Some people think this wildlife must be everywhere (I recall one of my family members in France asking me if I had kangaroos in my Melbourne backyard). Sadly no. And chances are that if they restrict their […]

The Isle of Pines – A Little Piece of Paradise

The Isle of Pines or “Ile des Pins” is a small island situated in the Pacific Ocean. It is part of New Caledonia, a French colony. It takes around thirty minutes by plane to get there from Noumea, the capital of New Caledonia. The plane ride is quite stunning as you get to see all of the […]
