6 Must Dos in Airlie Beach

Airlie Beach is not the biggest of towns and you will be hard pressed to get lost since everything you might need is situated along the one long main street.

Top 9 Things You Must Do in Cairns

Cairns is one of the bigger cities in Queensland and is bustling with life and youth. Being a backpacker hotspot, the city is alive constantly with sunbathers hanging around the water front, crowding the many hostels in the CBD and with party people at night. There are many places for foodies to delight in, many […]

5 Tings to Do in and around Darwin

Enjoy Life in the City Darwin itself has not a terribly lot to offer. To be honest, I found Darwin slightly on the boring side. If you like partying, you might be happy to stay on the main street because that’s where it’s at – backpackers, bars and daily events. For a more sophisticated and […]

The Quirkiest Attractions Along Stuart Highway

It’s Foto Friday again and this time around I want to show you some pretty quirky places in the Northern Territory. The drive up the super straight Stuart Highway might be a tad boring. You know, same old landscape, unchanging scenery, all of that. But you need to stop every now and then for rest, […]

Did You Know these Five Fun Facts about Australia?

Moving Forward What does a kangaroo and an emu have in common and why are they put on the coats of arms of Australia? The answer to these questions is simple: moving forward. The kangaroo and emu are physically unable to move backwards. I find this such a clever metaphor for a country that seeks […]

Where to Get Free Guided Tours in Adelaide

The city of Adelaide has so much variety on offer and is also very obliging in offering a great amount of free tours. Nature lovers, culture connoisseurs and foodie fanatics will all get a piece. With so much to choose from, it was hard to decide but nonetheless I opted for three different walks and […]

A Great Time on the Road with Groovy Grape Tours

This post was sponsored. Here it ends, my epic adventure with Groovy Grape Tours. I have seen loads in just 3 weeks and marvelled at many iconic Australian sights along the way. Starting out with the Great Ocean Road Tour from Melbourne to Adelaide, I saw the world famous 12 Apostles, the still impressive remains […]

10 Things to Do in Alice Springs

Alice Springs is a top destination for outback trips to the red centre’s main attractions, which are Ayers Rock, the Olgas and Kings Canyon. However, the city in the middle of nowhere also has its own features. Despite this, be warned, it will not be overly exciting or spectacular. To get a good overview of […]

This post was sponsored. Mishaps happen and if you’ve been following my social media channels you would know by now that the last couple of months have been – more or less – a serious bad luck streak for me. It should come as no surprise that it caught up to me as far as […]

Hiking the Kings Canyon with Groovy Grape Tours

This post was sponsored. Even today we were not quite rid of the clouds but, never mind, they made for an even more phenomenal sunrise over the dark silhouette of the King’s Canyon as we struggled up the Cardiac Hill and onto the start of the four hour long Rim Walk. Piled up rocks, layered […]

Beware of Dropbears… or Koalas

Koalas are not Koala bears. They are – if at all – Koala marsupials. But aside from such formalities, let us just adore the fluffiness of them. Thinking about it, they do not actually feel fluffy. And are not as cute as I thought. Before I keep rambling on, get your own image of these […]

Rock Patrol Tour Day 5 with Groovy Grape Tours

Our new friends the clouds welcomed us on this chilly morning in the usually hot, red centre of Australia. Today they at least didn’t rain down on us and so our Groovy Grape Tours group set out for the Uluru base walk after gathering our strength with a feast of pancakes. The walk takes about […]

Once in a Life Time – Rain at the Uluru with Groovy Grape Tours

This post was sponsored. The weather gods were not in our favour. Since yesternight they had the clouds roll in, rage storms and the occasional downpour on our heads. Accordingly, we had to shift our plans and instead of hiking around Uluru, we focused on Kata Tjuta instead. It was rather uncomfortable walking around in […]

Digging up Opal in Coober Pedy with Groovy Grape Tours

This post was sponsored.

The model at the next stop, […]

Long Drives through the Outback with Groovy Grape Tours

This post was sponsored. Rise and shine and that we did even before the first sunrays hit our breakfast. With the first streaks of red we raced away from the Flinders to get a grand view of the sun breaking out of her sleep over their mountains’ majestic ridges. Posers that we were, we included […]
