MONA – Museum of Old and New Art

“I would recommend anyone to fly from anywhere around the world just to come to MONA for at least one day.” – Ben Jarvis, exceedingly excited having just seen the ‘poo machine’ fedĀ and poo within three hours of each other.

Bruny Island | Tasmania

When the time came to depart Hobart for Bruny Island, we had no idea what to expect. I had heard many mentions of Bruny, in that it was beautiful and “you have to go”, but no specific places to go or things to try so we thought we’d just drive on down and see how […]

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.

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 […]
