Our Camper Van Experience.

As many of you know we spent the majority of our time travelling the East Coast of Australia by camper van and as this is quite a popular way of seeing both New Zealand and Australia, I thought I would give a bit of an overview of our experience of both living in a camper […]

Brisbane, Australia.

As mentioned in earlier posts we ended up staying in Brisbane twice – once on the way up to Port Douglas and then again right at the end of our trip as this was where we would fly out to Fiji.  We spent five days driving from Port Douglas to Brisbane, stopping off in Noosa […]

Cape Tribulation & The Daintree Rainforest, Australia.

Our day trip to Cape Tribulation marked the most northern point of Australia visited during our two and a half months in the country.

Port Douglas, Australia.

We originally didn’t think we had time to visit Port Douglas, which is a couple of hours north of Cairns and if I’m honest I wasn’t that bothered about going. Matt however voiced his interest and I am so glad he did; Port Douglas ended up being one of my favourite places that we visited […]

The Whitsundays, Airlie Beach, Australia.

Between Yeppoon and Airlie Beach, we stopped for one night in Mackay – this was only a rest stop however and we did not get to look around the town. Arriving in Airlie Beach was exciting, maybe due to the fact that it was the first place since Noosa that had a holiday feel to […]

The Fraser Coast, Australia: Rainbow Beach & Hervey Bay.

As well as Noosa, we also frequented a couple of other stops along the Fraser Coast. Depending on where you are catching your Fraser Island tour from, you probably only need to visit one of these if you are short on time. Rainbow Beach: As mentioned in my Fraser Island post, Rainbow Beach is a […]

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 […]
