Due to its unwavering popularity, Noosa caters for the sun-seeking resort life traveller with high-end accommodation, shopping and restaurant options. A lot of this is centralised along Hasting Street which is set just metres back from the beach.

Let me take you on a journey, a magical journey to a place way up high. Where the air is cold and crisp, and new daylight bathes the view below. Floating above the tree tops in a rainbow hot air balloon is not your average way to start a new week.

Every so often I hear on the news, stories of missing tourists. They get lost while embarking on the trip of a life time to explore our beautiful country. It can easily happen to anyone, a wrong turn, flat tyre, car breakdown or stranded by flood waters. This situation can begin as an inconvenience and then quickly turn into a life threatening situation. Our country can be unforgiving to those who choose to explore its remote beauty under prepared.

I love a good road trip. Wide open spaces, clear night skies and surrounded by Mother Nature. In fact, I love any trip that guides you off the beaten track to explore remote and secluded destinations. It’s such a great
The city of Melbourne has always fascinated me. I’ve been to Melbourne several times over the years. Each time feels like a manic rush to be places and meet family for special occasions. These times have all been lovely and memorable don’t get me wrong. But some small part of me always wanted a little more time and a little more freedom to explore. A few weeks ago…
October is a big birthday month for our family; especially since Dad and I share the same birth date! How cool is that?

Have you ever wanted to wander around a castle? Or get lost in a secret garden? If you have answered yes, then Paronella Park is definitely a place you should plan to visit.
Shortly after our adventures snorkelling the Great Barrier Reef , we said goodbye to Mossman and drove south past Cairns. We chose to follow the coastal route known as The Great Green Way. We passed through some beautiful country with rainforest covered mountains, rolling cane fields, hidden waterfalls and pristine beaches.
