Cairns & the Great Barrier Reef

Stepping off the plane I remembered that feeling, that hot, sweaty, humid feeling that I had felt that 6 years ago when I stepped off the plane in Darwin. Okay, so it wasn’t quite as hot in Cairns, but god it felt it! This was now my third time in Cairns, both of my last trips being in 2011 and it hasn’t changed a bit. I love Cairns. When we first decided to emigrate this is where I had my…

Noosa & The Gagaju Bushcamp


Noosa was recommended to us by many backpackers with a warning that there’s not a lot to do, but it’s a beautiful place and they were right – it’s a lovely place, nice town but most people use Noosa as a base to go to Australia Zoo or to get out on the Everglades, which is exactly what we did too. We arrived late April and stayed at Nomads in a 16 bed dorm which wasn’t as horrendous as some…

Work Outback Queensland


Let me take you back to 2011 when I first came to the glorious country that is Australia. After a road trip from Darwin to Cairns, I was on my arse skint (poor, cashless almost) but I was determined that even if I had only come travelling with £2,200 ($3,150 AUD) in the bank that I WOULD see it out for the full year, no matter what (partially thanks to working in the Outback!). Looking back, that was the most…

The Finders Keepers…

Finders Keepers Losers Weepers… We were lucky enough to live over the road from the Old Museum in Bowen Hills/Fortitude Valley at the time and last-minute I found out that there was a market on over the weekend called ‘The Finders Keepers’ – knowing nothing about it, I logged online and found that it’s on twice a year in Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne, I thought it looked great – local artists and businesses selling their products, with live music, fresh…

Sydney to Brisbane Road Trip

Sydney was really chilled out for us. We had a cute little AirBNB apartment in Potts Point which was nice to have some privacy rather than staying in backpackers with all of our stuff, plus it cost the same because there were two of us! We went sightseeing most days and walked more than I have ever walked before, but we didn’t go out on lots of trips or anything because we just wanted time to relax and settle in.…

Road Trip Planning – Sydney to Brisbane 6th September we land in Sydney at 10.30pm (AEST) so rather than traipsing into the city after a 24hour flight, we have decided to book ourselves into the Ibis Budget Hotel at Sydney Airport for the night to rest up before we go and explore on our road trip! I have been looking for somewhere nice to stay in Sydney for what feels like forever… last time we stayed in an apartment close to…
