Driving down the road into Airlie Beach was a relief. We were greeted by wonderful views of the bluest of oceans and the sun was making them glisten and dazzle. Hours of travelling, stopping off at various places for the night in order to split up the journey. It was a relief because we knew […]Read more "Airlie Beach and the scenic flight"
My trusty Lonely Planet book, which now looks battered and worn, suggested we check out the Capricorn Caves whilst in Rockhampton. Known as the beef capital of Australia we also expected to chow down on some rather good steak that evening. As with all travel plans, they don’t always tend to run as smoothly as […]Read more "The un-forgetable lightning strikes in Rockhampton"
Note: After a short break away from the blogging world, to temporarily concentrate on settling into a new home and job, I am hoping to get back to posting every other day again! Our second over night stop on our long drive from Noosa to Airlie Beach was the Town of 1770/Agnes Water. Both towns […]Read more "Exploring the Town of 1770’s waters"
The next quick stop destination on our journey to Airlie beach was a town called Bundaberg. Famous for its rum and ginger beer. Whilst the boys headed to the rum factory, I took a little break and read my book instead. Luckily they told me all about it. The process of making rum comprises of […]Read more "Unforgettable trip to Bundaberg"
On our way to Airlie Beach we decided to split the long journey up by stopping off at a few places along the way. We made an overnight stop at Hervey Bay. The campsite we stopped at was right on the beach so George and I went for a sunset stroll along the beach. […]Read more "Quick stop off at Hervey Bay"
Following the adventures of Fraser Island, I felt a couple of nights stay in an Airbnb justifiable, as well as a premature Valentine’s Day treat. We booked three nights in Elizabeth’s $2 million home designed by Chris Clout. It was beautiful. It had been designed in such a way to allow the indoors and outdoors […]Read more "Nice Noosa – where we relaxed and rebuilt"
It was an early start on the morning of our trip to Fraser Island. Rolling my bedding into a pile ready for check out and with my luggage all packed, I headed to reception to wait for the bus. There were many sleepy people sat with their bags on the pavement that morning. We had […]Read more "Expect to be covered in sand, eat sand and walk on sand whilst on Fraser Island"
Arriving into Brisbane, the rain decided to fall again. We booked to stay at the closest campsite to the centre; Newmarket Gardens Caravan Park. Very average site! My friend insisted that I had to go and check out the delicious desserts at the Chester Street Bakery on Chester Street. I took her advise and dragged […]Read more "Brisbane, another city"
Arriving in Surfers Paradise, the heavens opened and we got soaked in the midst of sorting out the camper van. It was not the welcome we had all anticipated. That evening George, with a little help from myself, cooked us a roast chicken dinner using a cooked chicken that we had bought from Coles. I […]Read more "Surfers Paradise with a lack of surfers spotted"
On our way to Surfers Paradise we stopped off at Springbrook National Park. Knowing little more than what the Lonely Planet guide told us, we were in need on an information desk and a map. Unfortunately nowhere seemed to be open but luckily we found a map outside the information building. I wasn’t very impressed […]Read more "The Natural Bridge and all its shimmery goodness"
