Comprehensive weekend guide to Canberra – What to see and do, Where to go and Where to stay?

I never thought I would say this…. BUT I don’t think a weekend (or a long weekend) is long enough in Canberra….. I know I’m shocked too! I have always thought Canberra would be boring because its all about politics and politicians, it’s not exactly a travel destination like Sydney or Melbourne but wow I had so much fun in Canberra!!!! Personally I think walking is one of the best ways to experience Canberra, Australia's National Capital. Not only do you get fit and see more than you would in a car but you are also saving money on taxis (which were quite expensive!). You’re probably wondering what’s so great about Canberra? I’ve complied the perfect list of where to go, what to see and do and of course where to stay while in Canberra. Plan your trip to Australia Unsure about travelling during COVID?

3 of our Favourite Road Trips around Australia

Exotic, exciting and far away, Australia is a dream-like destination for many people, especially those who live on the other side of the world. Australia occupies an entire continent (aren’t we lucky), and it’s incredibly diverse. From stunning coastline roads to the stark and somewhat overwhelming desert landscapes in the centre of the country, there’s certainly a lot to see. Australia is massive, it’s basically the size of Europe (excluding Russia and Turkey), so a road trip across the entire country might take several months, and is likely impractical for the majority of travellers who can only visit for a few weeks. Today we will touch on a few of the more popular road trips within Australia so you can get a taste of this beautiful country. There are plenty of “classic Aussie road trip” ideas for those who live in Australia however for travellers I’d recommend focusing on a…

14 Crazy Reasons why I LOVE Sydney so much!

14 Crazy Reasons why I LOVE Sydney so much!

Sydney isn't too different to Adelaide (my hometown), they both have lots of cars, lots of people and lots of tall corporate buildings (but yes, everything is on a much larger scale), yet there is always something that draws me to Sydney. I come back time after time, each time finding new wonderful things. I would live there if I didn't like my job so much and if I could afford to live close to the city (doubtful!). In the last 4 months, we have been to Sydney 3 times, each time we discover something new and wonderful. So why do I love it so much? Plan your trip to Australia Unsure about travelling during COVID?
