A Day trip to the Grampians National Park

The Grampians National Park is part of the Great Southern Touring Route, and so for a lot of tourists, a visit there is a one-day affair on the way to or from the Great Ocean Road. Although you can’t possibly see everything in a single day, it is possible to see the main sights and to […]

A Visit to Tasmania’s Breathtaking Bay of Fires

There’s definitely no shortage of breathtaking places to visit in Tasmania, and even though the state is quite small, you could easily travel around it for weeks and not see them all. The Bay of Fires is one of those amazing places. This hidden gem of Tasmania stretches fifty kilometres from Binalong Bay to Eddystone […]

10 Things to Do in The Tamar Valley

Running alongside the Tamar River, the Tamar Valley stretches sixty kilometres north from the Tasmanian city of Launceston, up to the Bass Strait. It’s Tasmania’s oldest wine growing region and is renowned as one of the best in Australia. Simon and I both love wine, but surprisingly after eight trips to Tasmania, we still hadn’t […]

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 […]

Ngapali Beach: Paradise Found in Myanmar

Visiting Myanmar’s many pagodas, temples and ancient capitals was a big part of our recent holiday there. We loved immersing ourselves in the country’s rich culture and history. But after nearly two weeks of temple hopping, and being constantly on the go, we were exhausted. Some relaxation time was definitely in order, before flying home […]

Hiking the Main Range Track to Mount Kosciuszko

After spending a wonderful Christmas in Pambula, New South Wales this year, we were feeling the side effects of eating way too much food, and certainly not enough hiking! So it was just as well that after leaving Pambula we drove north to the town of Jindabyne, an all year round haven for skiers, hikers […]

Riding the Skyrail and Kuranda Scenic Railway in Cairns

On our recent trip to tropical North Queensland, there were two things we knew we had to do. The first was to revisit the Great Barrier Reef. That’s a no-brainer, you can’t head up there and not go snorkelling on the reef. But many people had also suggested taking the Skyrail over the rainforest to the […]
