Cairns is famous for the Great Barrier Reef where you can snorkel and dive with turtles and sharks. Bonus to this are a range of stunning...
Are you keen on the prospect of waking up every day beside 10 other people? You saucy thing you...
After a few weeks of breaking free from the routine of our house-share in Noosa and travelling once again, we...
We have, until now, relied on hitching and ride-share's to get around...
There's something special about very much still being the same planet as everyone else, but feeling just a tad detached from everything, in a really refreshing way...
We have gone back out into the world, left behind Noosa, a bubble of abundant wealth and neat beauty...
We have had our ups and downs over our 3 years together, but this has been mostly down...
Will these 12 reasons be enough to get you on a plane to Australia?!
The beauty of travel is not always found in constant movement or change, sometimes its in living somewhere long enough to love it, but not long enough to hate it.
I needed to be with my lovely family, as did Taran. as much for them as for us.
Australia has become home for the past year, and as much as we love it, it certainly isn't perfect...
Rousing ourselves sleepily at 5am, we crawled out the tent, and took the short hop over a fence and..
"he finally woke up, rising to his feet, clearly utterly oblivious to what had just happened."
Camping on Whitehaven beach was a privilege and an amazing experience; we never wanted to leave!
We have returned to the life of travel, having lived on a farm for 3 months and an island for 2!
A month or so ago, when we applied for jobs here on Fraser Island, we didn't know what to expect...
Just 2 weeks ago we got some awesome news, we had secured paid work on Fraser Island!
So do you want to live and work on a farm in rural Australia? Well here's some useful tips on the realities of the experience!
These 6 photos show the awesome diverse range of landscapes in Australia, check em' out!
The dolphins feeding is a monitored and sanctioned activity; they are not dependant on the humans, just in the habit of visiting that spot and putting on a cute little show for visitors to get some breaky.
Speeding out of the harbour on a baking day, we hit the windy extremes of the open sea, coming up alongside Fraser Island (which looks as cool as we imagined it might), we headed out to find them.
I've always fantasized about the idea of living in the old American west, riding horses, days spent amongst the sun and the dust... So to find ourselves donning farm clothes, waking with the day, working amongst nature in the closest possible way, well, it's been bizarre, sometimes hard but mostly amazing. We are living the farming dream!
Our mildly desperate hunt for farm work was nicely broken up with a 3 day excursion up the coast with our Brisbanite friend Rachel. We decided to hit up 1770, a small town, right next to an equally small seaside town Agnes Waters.
Arriving in Bargara a few days before getting to Kelly's, we felt a tad apprehensive. Would the people be nice? Would the work be fair? Would it be a good use of our time?
Brisbane was meant to be a two-three day stopover, because it would just be another concrete jungle right? Yes and No.
Off to Brisbane via Surfers Paradise we went. Hitch-hiking our way out of town, we spent a good hour, the warmest of the day, holding our weary arms out. We instinctively knew it would only be a matter of time, but that doesn't stop you sweating in the midday sun.
This was more than just a pot-fest, this was a sensical display highlighting just how non-sensical the laws around cannabis are; its hopefully something that won't be debated in the future, once it becomes legal and common-place across the world, not in just some places.
The hostel is home to water lizards, greedy birds, lots of pesky bush turkeys and many mosquito's! The guy who does the entertainment has a cockatoo who says "Let me out!. It's quite a cool setting, with a pond, lots of bush-land and some lazy hammocks to relax in.
Word of the Mardi-Grass festival in the hippy-town Nimbin had reached our ears..
Arriving at Melaleuca we found it to be like a cross between Tarzan's house and the Swiss Family Robinson; palm trees, wooden decking passageways through the plant-life between buildings, and to top it off, a rescue Kangaroo called Josie!
