This spring, I was lucky enough to visit Queensland, Australia again. I went on a 20-day road trip through some of the prettiest spots in the country. Queensland is filled with stunning national parks, reef filled oceans, rainforests and lots of spectacular wildlife.
One of the most spectacular places I visited during this trip was Cape Hillsborough National Park. The national park can be found near MacKay and offers some of the most spectacular natural sights! From kangaroos and wallabies on the beach during sunrise to imposing prehistoric rock formations and stunning untouched rainforests.
When you set your alarm at 5.15 am you know it’s going to be spectacular (Or a least, it better be). My alarm went off at this gauzily hour to watch a sunrise with kangaroos and wallabies playing and chilling on the beach whilst the sun slowly rose behind them.
In this blog post, I will take you along this incredible sight at Cape Hillsborough National Park. I will show you many photos and I will give you my honest opinion about whether it is worth the early morning wake up call.
Let’s explore the kangaroos of Cape Hillsborough National Park!
The Capricorn Caves are a great destination to check out during a trip to Queensland. In this cave system, you can explore spectacular caves set in a limestone ridge and even spot little bats. These amazing caves are located north of Rockhampton (Just a 23-kilometer drive) and are winners of many major tourism and environment awards, they are also eco-tourism accredited.
Home to ‘the cathedral’, bats, tree roots, larges and small chambers, these caves are pretty interesting to explore! In this blog post, I will take you along to these caves and show you what it is like to take the Cathedral Tour within the cave system. What will you encounter, is it worth your time and effort and more. Let’s dive in, shall we…
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.
In this post, I will show you the best things to do alone in Brisbane. From Australia Zoo to amazing walks and nice day trips. Let’s dive in….
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.
