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.

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.

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)

A MINI BREAK IN AIRLIE BEACH, QUEENSLAND

Every year for my birthday I go on a mini holiday, my holiday last year was very interesting as I ended up in the hospital. So this year I decided to stay a little closer to home and go to Airlie beach the gateway to the Whitsundays and the Great Barrier Reef. I was also here in 2017 after I became a hotel manager for a quick break and I absolutely loved it. So, I thought I would come back for round two.  Underneath is a bit of a photo diary of my holiday.

7 OF SYDNEY’S BEST BEACHES

Sydney is incredibly blessed with some of the most famous and beautiful beaches in the world – all that sand, sparkling blue ocean and a water temperature that never dips below mild. It’s entirely understandable why spending the day at the beach is a favorite pastime of Sydneysiders. Whether it is summer or winter, you can always find a handful of people on any beach at any location throughout the city. Sydney is blessed with well over 100 beaches in the city, ranging in size from a few meters to several kilometers, located along the city’s Pacific Ocean coastline and its harbors, bays, and rivers. Underneath I will show you 7 of my favorite and most pretty beaches that are in Sydney. From the uber-popular Bondi, Manly, and Palm Beach to the small and oh so pretty Gordons bay or Balmoral Beach.
