Australia’s largest sand island: Fraser Island

What better way to celebrate my last Australian adventure than abandoning civilisation and heading out to the world’s largest sand island for three days of… camping. My first thought that morning was ‘what am I thinking’? I hate hate hate camping! Even at festivals, give me a hotel instead of a tent any day! But…

Sailing the Whitsundays

After two relaxing days in Magnetic Island I couldn’t wait to get on to Airlie Beach and start my next adventure, The Whitsundays. I’d heard it was one of the best trips in Australia so I already had high hopes… they weren’t wrong! This trip is right up there with Melbourne. Incredible! The adventure began…

Cairns & the Great Barrier Reef

Arriving at the airport was like landing on Mars, pretty much in the middle or no where. The 15 minute drive to the hostel didn’t seem much busier. Slightly worrying as I’m quite a city person, I’m comforted by shops, banks and mostly… people. However, my hostel was possibly the coolest place ever! Staying in…

Melbourne & The Great Ocean Road

I don’t even know where to start with Melbourne, by far the best place I’ve visited so far! After feeling underwhelmed by Sydney, I’ve put this down to not having much time to explore what the city really had to offer, I couldn’t wait to get to Melbourne. Everyone told me it’d be my favourite…

My week with OzIntro

What a hectic week this was! After a delayed flight to Sydney from Brisbane it was all stations go as soon as I set foot off the plane. My bag and I were whisked away by a lovely chap from OzIntro and taken straight to the Base hostel for a seven minute turn around. Yup…

The Blue Mountains National Park

Before I came to Australia everyone told me that I had to visit the Blue Mountains. Now, I can’t say that I’m majorly into looking at, or trekking up mountains (everyone knows I’m lazy) but this was the best thing I have EVER done. Apart from the breath taking landscape, our amazing tour guide Smokey…

Hello Sydney!

First and foremost, many apologises for the lack of posts this last week. To be honest I’ve been too busy having fun! News of the week, I’m now in Sydney! After a delayed flight from Brisbane on Monday morning, thanks Jetstar, I met up with the rest of my OzIntro tour group and got straight…

Moreton Island: An island paradise

It’s a pretty amazing feeling when you look around and yours are the only footprints in sight… The past four days spent on the third largest sand island in the world is a beautiful blur of white sand, lulling waves and glorious sunsets. Moreton Island is the closest thing to paradise I can imagine. Unless…

“Batten down the hatches!”

Proof that it isn’t always sunny in Australia… Grey skies, rain and storm warnings. It’s time to batten down the hatches and tie down the screens, there’s a storm a-brewin!

Mooloolaba

What better way to spend a boiling hot Sunday other than lounging around on a beautiful beach? The answer, nothing. Just an hours drive from Brisbane, Mooloolaba is the type of beach you would expect to see on a postcard. I wasn’t brave enough to venture into the sea this time (it doesn’t help that…
