Fraser Island, Australia. 

As the largest all-sand island in the world, with a large population of wild dingo and some beautiful natural wonders, it’s pretty unsurprising that Fraser Island is on most people’s (both tourist and resident) Australia bucket list. The three main mainland locations from which to hop over to this beauty are Noosa, Rainbow Beach and […]

The Sunshine Coast, Australia: Noosa.

After the Gold Coast, we spent two days in Brisbane before heading up to the Sunshine Coast; most notably Noosa. As we are flying out of Brisbane in July and have another few days there at the end of our time in Australia, I have decided to consolidate both visits to the city into one […]

The Gold Coast, Australia: Burleigh Heads, Surfer’s Paradise & Southport.

Byron Bay was our last stop in New South Wales and as we crossed the border into Queensland I was excited. Warmer weather, tropical climate and some of the most popular sights in Australia – who wouldn’t be excited about that?! Our first stop was the towering skyline of the Gold Coast, where we ended […]

The Penguin Parade: Phillip Island, Australia.

The attraction known as the ‘Penguin Parade’ has been drawing crowds to Phillip Island (just off of Melbourne’s coast) since the 1920’s, when Australians used to view ‘Little Penguins’ by torch light as they waddled back across the beach to their burrows after days at sea. What ensued however was many years of rampant tourism […]

Melbourne, Australia.

Dropping back the hire car at midday, we caught a free shuttle back to airport where we organised our journey into the centre of Melbourne. The Sky Bus is a great option and costs $19 AUD for a one way ticket into the city. We were headed downtown to the St Kilda area so got […]

Adelaide, Australia. 

We drove into Adelaide on the morning of 22nd April to bright blue sky and gorgeous sunshine, making a stop at the Botanic Gardens before heading to our Air BnB. We spent two blissful hours walking through brightly flourishing flower beds, around lakes and ponds and exploring vast rainforest greenhouses.  We arrived at our Air […]
