WHALE WATCHING IN HERVEY BAY | WALE WATCHING PARADISE

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.

A CITY GUIDE TO BRISBANE | QUEENSLAND

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.

MINI GUIDE TO WATSON’S BAY | SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA

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.

YOUR ULTIMATE SYDNEY TRAVEL ITINERARY | 6 DAYS IN SYDNEY

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.

SYDNEY’S UNIQUE WILDLIFE

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.

THE WATSON BAY TO ROSE BAY COASTAL WALK

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.

SYDNEY’S ICONIC BUILDING BY NIGHT | THE SYDNEY OPERA HOUSE

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.

A ROAD TRIP TO JERVIS BAY NATIONAL PARK

Jervis Bay National Park is the perfect place for a quick getaway when you need to escape the hustle and bustle of Sydney living. This stunning national park is located about a 3-hour drive from Sydney and offers not only the worlds whites beach but also whale watching and fishing opportunities and lots of Aboriginal heritage. I hired a groovy campervan from Wicked Travel with my friend and headed off to this national park for a 3-day and 2-night trip.

SYDNEY’S BEST SUNSET SPOT | MRS MACQUARIES CHAIR

Sunsets in Sydney are scandalously beautiful! If you follow me on Instagram or Twitter you would often see me attempting to capture these sunsets from different locations throughout Sydney. On a warm winters evening I ventured over to Mrs. Macquarie’s Chair in the Royal Botanic Gardens to see if Sydney would put on a bedtime show that night, and boy she did. In this post, I will take you with me and show you what it was like.

THE ULTIMATE ULURU TOUR | SLEEPING UNDER THE STARS

Probably one of the coolest holidays I have been on what was a 3-day 2-night trip to Kata Tjuta, Kings Canyon and Australia’s most recognizable natural landmarks – Uluru.  I slept underneath a starry night’s sky in a swag, I walked the base route of Ayers Rock and hiked to the Garden of Eden. It was just one thing after another with its unique and breathtakingly beautiful scenery and that all whilst learning about the Aboriginal culture. If you are thinking of taking an organized trip but don’t want to spend a fortune, then check out this blog post. I will take you along with my trip and show you what it was like, whether I recommend going on this tour or even at all. (Spoiler alert: This trip is bloody brilliant)
