Tasmania’s most wonderful winter activities

I remember the days when barely any tourists would actually consider visiting Tasmania in winter. Australia’s southernmost state has always been known for being a somewhat cold destination, so the majority of people who journey south of the mainland tend to do so in the summer months. However, I have noticed on my regular visits home that the...

How to spend one day in Tamworth, NSW

The regional city of Tamworth proved to be way more urban than I thought it would be. With few surroundings except livestock roaming grassy fields and bushland with scattered gum trees, Tamworth feels surprisingly like a mini-metropolis with conveniences that rival the busier towns lining the east coast of Australia. I’d never had the...

The best Melbourne activities (plus some hidden gems!)

When I lived in Tasmania, I used to travel to Melbourne all the time. As the closest major city to my hometown of Hobart, Melbourne was the place for us Taswegians to go if we wanted to attend a show, see a band play, or do some serious shopping. Now that I live in Sydney, my trips to Melbourne have unfortunately become much less frequent....

Is Taronga Zoo worth the crazy admission price?

This post was originally published on A Globe Well Travelled in 2015. I’m currently updating some older content with fresh information so that we’re all inspired to continue travelling! Let me start by saying I don’t normally visit zoos. I’m more of a wildlife sanctuary kind of gal. Wild animals that aren’t enclosed in cages or...

Sydney’s best Instagram locations

This post was originally published on A Globe Well Travelled in 2018. I’m currently updating some older content with fresh information so that we’re all inspired to continue travelling! In my opinion, Sydney is one of the most photogenic cities in the world. Sydney’s good looks are one of the reasons that I love calling it home....

One day in Coffs Harbour for adults (without kids!)

For some reason, Coffs Harbour is one of those places that has an exceptional number of family-focused activities. Any of you who have at some stage travelled as adults without kids would know that it can be better to avoid being around a ton of pram-wielding parents. The kid-friendly aspects of a destination are entirely unappealing when you...

Byron Bay area rainy day activities guide

On our 3-day trip to the holiday town of Byron Bay, it rained nearly the entire time. It would have been great to spend at least some time relaxing on the beach, but that didn’t end up happening. Every single day was forecast rain, and while we saw a few patches of clear sky here and there, they were unfortunately not long-lasting. Byron...

Sydney to Byron Bay: A relaxed NSW road trip itinerary

This northern NSW road trip was actually not on my priorities list. Like, at all. For longer trips I usually pick destinations that are a little further from my current home of Sydney, but with the pandemic closing Australia’s borders for international travel, that just wasn’t possible. Instead, I was hoping to venture across the country...

The best places for wildlife encounters in Australia

This post was originally published on A Globe Well Travelled in 2017. I’m currently updating some older content with fresh information to keep us inspired while COVID-19 stops us from travelling! What’s the first thing you think of when you visualise Australia? My guess is that, aside from the freakin’ amazing beaches, it’s the...

National Park rainforests + waterfalls: Mount Field road trip from Hobart

Known to Tassie locals as simply ‘National Park’, Mount Field is one of those places that has everything a nature lover could wish for. Just before Christmas, I ventured south to Tasmania to visit my family (for the first time in over a year as state borders had been closed for most of 2020!). After being stuck in our small apartment for months...
