A perfect day out at The Entrance, NSW Central Coast

The Entrance is a pretty weird name for a place, right? This seaside location is a popular holiday spot in the Central Coast region of New South Wales, and is where the ocean water travels in and out of Lake Tuggerah (hence the name). Aside from having a handful of really nice beaches, The Entrance is also known for having a colony of friendly...

Wander through the treetops on a Huon Valley day trip from Hobart

The Huon Valley is one of those places that can show you everything that Tasmania is really about. People travel south to this state to be engrossed in the natural scenery, to eat the local produce, to get up close to the wildlife, and to smell the remarkably fresh air.

Hit the slopes in NZ: Queenstown ski trip guide

Queenstown is one of my favourite places to visit for a winter ski trip. It’s pretty appealing for snow-loving Sydneysiders like me to head on over to Queenstown for a winter holiday. A quick 3 hour flight from Australia’s east coast takes us to ZQN airport, then the nearby ski fields are under an hour’s drive away. For context, driving...

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....
