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.
What was a curious interest in the area, turned out to be interesting days of exploration. What a delight the Yarra Valley turned out to be! We even extended our stay. We headed onwards from there to Ballarat where I shared some of Australia’s gold history with Rich.
