Many have wondered – and asked – what’s in my bag for my indefinite worldwide solo trek. I have to admit, it took me a while to work out what to pack and I continue to tweak it. I’ve learned a lot along the way.
Piha is a place I will definitely return to. It is magical. I can’t say what it is, but I’ve visited twice now and it’s relaxed, chilled out beach vibe always draws me in…
Hobart is unlike any other Australian city. The raw nature of the place is what keeps me going back. I guide you on what there is to discover, where to stay and share some great dining finds.
Milford Sound is a place on earth where not only is the destination stunning, but the journey to get there is just as breathtaking. I guide you on what to see, do, and where to stay to get the most of exploring this amazing area.
After 10 months (re) Discovering Australia, I have pulled 18 destinations together that took my breath away. Even as an Aussie, I was astounded at how breathtakingly beautiful Australia was.
After a 10-month road trip through Australia, with many, many nights in Airbnb stays, I’ve stayed in everything from basic to luxury accommodation. I found a haven in each of these Airbnbs. Here are my Top 10 Airbnbs in Australia.
Do you know Canberra is Australia’s Capital City? It’s not somewhere that’s high on the tourist list, but it’s worth a visit. I share why you need to visit, where to visit, where to eat and stay. So put it on your Australian itinerary.
The south coast of N.S.W is beloved by tourists and locals alike. In fact, try and find a place anywhere on the south coast between mid-December and January and you will sorely out of luck. It’s an amazing coastline with a lot of offer. Come see for yourself.
For a family beach getaway, only minutes from downtown Hobart, this is the perfect place to base for a family holiday in Tasmania. Self-contained units provide the space and opportunity to spread out or come together.
I’ve realised that a list is limiting. It limits you from seeing amazing places that you may not have heard of before and realistically, If I updated the list of places I’m learning about along the way, I would never get to any of them. It would be too overwhelming! So, maybe it’s time to ditch the list and follow my instincts… go with the flow, as it were.
I see myself as a digital nomad. One who writes fiction, writes about amazing travel experiences and, through my photography, offers another, wonderful way to share the world as I go.
I answer the most common questions I receive while on the road, as to how I manage to travel full time.
While most Sydneysiders know about Cockatoo Island, few have ever visited, let alone stayed overnight. I was one of those people. I’d been by countless times on the Rivercat (ferry), gazing up to the heritage buildings, wondering about the history and the secrets from long ago. But I’d never set foot on Cockatoo Island. So, when the opportunity came along to go glamping on Cockatoo Island, I jumped at it.
Yeah, Perth seems like a long way to go, especially if you’re in Australia for a short time, but after finally getting there myself after too many years, I can tell you with great certainty: It’s worth going the distance. Perth is what Australia used to be like, the Australia I knew growing up. Lovely, friendly people. Big town atmosphere. Easy to get around. No stress. Easy living. And then there is the amazing history, culture and natural beauty that is all so accessible.
Rolling hills. Lush green countryside. Great wine. What better way to spend a day than a self-driving tour through the Barossa Valley?
Rottnest Island. The water was turquoise, with patches of a deep cobalt blue where seaweed lay beneath the surface. It was a sight I’d never seen before, despite my extensive travels.
Visiting Rottnest Island is like entering another world. A world where life is a great deal slower and actually enjoyed. Sounds amazing, right?!
If you’re looking for some of the most stunning coastal places in Australia, I have some hidden – and not so hidden – gems for you. As part of our (re) Discover Australia road trip, I have been left breathless with much of the coastline Australia has to offer.
I’ve travelled for years and I’m always curious what people take in their carry-on. So, here’s mine: What is always packed in my carry-on.
Everyone has their favourite playlist when they are on a roadtrip. I have a playlist that kicks off a roadtrip, but when I’m settled in, this is the playlist I reach for. I’m bound to catch some flak for some of the choices but I don’t care. I can sing them at the top of my longs because they are songs I LOVE. Some oldies, some current hits… all good stuff.
While the region is popular, it’s not only for the wine lovers. It’s foodie heaven. There’s local farm produce, down to earth goodies and gourmet offerings all over the place.
