Stories of our travels

West Coast Wilderness of Tasmania

For the past three weeks Ben and I have been in perpetual motion as we packed up our short lived lives in Melbourne amid Spring Racing Carnival celebrations, and headed to the rugged land to the south dubbed ‘Tassie’ by those in the know. I sincerely apologise for the lapse in communication since our departure, […]

Yamba, Angourie and Iluka

Three days ago in conversation with photographer friend Jai Long from Free the Bird Photography, we were discussing the pain and suffering caused in pursuit of the things we love. It reminded me of a few magical days we spent in the area around Yamba, south to Angourie and north to Iluka that I captured […]

The Surf Coast

Venturing south from Melbourne the road passes through the aptly named ‘Surf Coast Shire’, home to Torquay and Bells Beach and the gateway to the Great Ocean Road winding its way south along the Surf Coast. Our weekend mission was to head south to get out of the city but with fairly small swell and […]

Springtime in Newport Lakes

Spring is finally here and every day on my walk to work I am enraptured by the blossoms all around me. Yesterday Ben and I went for a walk through Newport Lakes in the afternoon sun and I was finally carrying my camera to take some snaps. Tucked in and hidden away two doors down […]

Mornington Peninsula

Located 45 minutes from the city of Melbourne, and for us, a short drive from Phillip Island where we had just spent a glorious and relaxing week surfing Kitty Miller, Mornington Peninsula was our final stop off before hitting the big city and earning some fresh money to keep us going. I had heard great […]

Phillip Island

The border crossing from NSW to Victoria landed us in Gippsland, green rolling hills bathed in winter sunshine, very much welcome after completing the East Coast of Australia in cold, wet, windy conditions. We made our way from Lakes Entrance to Phillip Island where we were instantly enchanted and decided to stay for a few […]

South Coast NSW

After leaving Newcastle, we spent a few short days around Terrigal, Avoca Beach and Copacabana north of Sydney before heading to the city for the weekend to visit friends. We drove into Sydney’s northern beaches on Friday afternoon, working our way from Narrabeen to Manly before finding our secret pozzie for the weekend. A big […]

Travel

Newcastle

My memories of Newcastle are of family holidays to visit our Australian aunts, uncles, cousins and grandparents. I was taken out of school during the cold, wet, windy New Zealand winter and flown across to what I considered a wonderfully warm, sunny place where I had no second thoughts about diving into the Tasman sea […]

Hunter Valley Wine and Food Month | Day Three

A highlight of campervan touring is the ever changing view. This morning we woke to see Lindeman’s nestled into the bottom of the valley. Day three of our tour during Hunter Valley Wine and Food Month began bright and early with a stroll down the hill from our overnight campsite to Lindemans for our first tasting experience of […]
