Any excuse for a little winter getaway

I’m always looking for a good excuse to escape the cold and head North during winter and the opportunity to take my son for his first visit of my family home was just too good to pass up! We ended up spending two weeks on the Mid North Coast of NSW surrounded by family and…

Marking Mother’s Day in Merimbula

  My little family decided to celebrate my very first Mother’s Day in our own slice of heaven on the South Coast. My parents-in-law live in the beautiful coastal town of Merimbula and we love visiting every chance we get. This trip was extra special because it was our son’s first of many. We had…

Summer escape: throwback to perfect beach days

The Canberra Balloon Spectacular is one of my favourite festivals and totally worth the early start. For nine days a big bunch of hot air balloons in…

My ultimate guide to Hawaii

It has almost been a year since our holiday to Hawaii and to say I’m itching to travel again would be a massive understatement! I’ve once again been bitten by the travel bug… We had such a fantastic trip I wanted to share my ultimate guide to the island paradise in the hope that it…

Exploring the Jenolan Caves
