Hervey Bay in Queensland is known as a whale-watching paradise. Due to its unique location, whales can be found here for months on end. They deliver their calves there and spend a couple of weeks in the waters before they swim further.
In September of this year, I was in Hervey Bay, and I could not leave this town without a whale-watching cruise. So at 6.30 am my alarm went off and we headed to the Spirit of Hervey Bay for a morning cruise.
Brisbane, located in Queensland, is a relatively unknown destination within Australia. When you are planning to travel Down Under, most people automatically think of Sydney and Melbourne as their main destinations. However, Brisbane has been paving their ways and attracting more and more visitors each year.
The city is the gateway to the Gold Coast, some stunning hinterlands and also the Great Barrier Reef! Surrounded by oceans and beaches, mountains, a thriving food scene, and cultural activities, there is always a variety of things to do, for everyone alike. And because they are blessed with an incredible subtropical climate, the city is a superb destination all year round.
The last couple of weekends I have spent wandering around some of Sydney’s eastern suburbs. One of my favorites is Watson’s Bay. Located at the end of South Head Peninsula, Watsons Bay is surrounded by the calm waters of Sydney Harbour on one side and the emerald Pacific Ocean on the other, offering stunning views throughout.
The suburb has a lot of history and is home to some of the best restaurants in the city.
In this mini-guide, I will show you all the cool spots, restaurants and walks you should when exploring this fancy suburb.
Sydney is by far the most amazing city I have ever lived in. Whenever I have time I love to go out and explore new things each time. Incredible coastal walks, hidden little beaches, UNESCO WORLD heritage sites and some of the most amazing sunsets you will ever encounter.
Six days in Sydney is definitely not enough to see everything this amazing metropolis has to offer – but it’s a great start. A lot of travelers start out in Sydney and then travel up the coast, so they have limited time to see everything.
I have therefore written this all-comprehensive 6-day Sydney travel itinerary (Including one day to the Blue Mountains and Jervis Bay National Park) to give you the best Sydney has got to offer. I will go over all of your best options for things to do, places to visit, and lots of helpful Sydney travel tips.
If you are not from Australia nor if you have ever been here, you might be under the impression that kangaroos are hopping along the street of Sydney on a daily basis. Whilst yes, every now and then one gets lots, it doesn’t happen often, and it is an occurrence that ‘stops the nation’. (When it happens to Sydney CBD)
There are however lots of unique and beautiful creatures that you can bump into on a daily basis in the city. From beautiful cockatoos to parakeets and massive spiders. I, therefore, made a comprehensive list of all the amazing you could see in Sydney.
If you are travel blogger, lifestyle blogger, an Instagram influencer, vlogger or travel fanatic you must have seen those amazing photos of people swimming and chilling with pigs on a tropical island. I know I have seen many of those, wishing I was there. Some travel friends of him have been traveling the world lately and were incredibly lucky to have actually done this and were too kind to help me compile this post for you guys.
So if you are wanting to go swim with these adorable piggy’s then read on. I will show you where to go, what to do and which is the best spot to go to.
If you have been following this blog for a while, then you know that I love nothing better then strapping on my walking boots and do a coastal walk during my days off. After living in Sydney for many years now, you’d think I had done them all, but the other week, I did the Watson Bay to Rose Bay walk for the first time – say what now!
If you like a relatively easy walk, filled with amazing secluded beaches, and a ridiculously beautiful city and harbor views, then I think you will like this walk as well.
Follow me along this 8K walk and see some of Sydney’s best sights.
I have been getting some questions on my Social Media (Instagram and Twitter) about the photography tools that I use, love and recommend. I thought I would write a quick post for you guys to that you can have a complete list of all the photography equipment I use to shoot, edit and process photos for my blog and social media accounts.
If you are looking to invest in the right equipment for taking photos for your blog, here’s a round-up of everything you would need. (In my humble opinion)
Hope you’ll find this useful!
If you are planning to travel to Bali, then I am certain you have heard of their spectacular terraced rice fields. If you are planning to visit one (Hint: you should) then make sure to read this post. During my first trip to Bali, I did a full-day guided tour with a local. Besides the mental monkeys at the monkey sanctuary, I also stopped at the Tagallalang Rice Terrace. The lush green terrace’s line the hills of Ubud, surrounded by waving palm trees. You truly have to see it in order to grasp its beauty.
Here’s everything you need to know about a quick trip to Bali’s famous rice fields in Ubud, the Tegallalang Rice Terrace.
Most cities don’t get better after the sun has set, but strangely Sydney does! Especially Circular Quay. With the Harbour Bridge and the Opera House as its main attractions, it truly becomes a spectacle after dark.
Especially the Opera House is a sight to behold after dark. I have written an extensive blog post already on where to see Sydney by night, so make sure to check that one out as well, but today I will take you up close to this Sydney Icon after the sun has set.
