MacKenzie Falls

MacKenzie Falls in the Grampians is perhaps the most impressive waterfall in the entire area. It’s located about 30 minutes drive from Halls Gap along the equally impressive Mount Victory Road which winds its way upwards along narrow twisting roads. Even if you don’t want to see the falls I highly recommend the drive but be sure your car has the power to handle the climb. Upon reaching Mackenzie Falls […]


Blue Lake Mount Gambier

The Blue Lake in Mount Gambier is something of a local attraction for me as I grew up not to far away. As a kid and adult I’d visit to see the fascinating changes in the colour of the lake. During the summer months of December to March its a beautiful cobalt blue, while during April to November its a far less attractive grey.


Yallingup Reef

Yallingup Reef, located along Western Australia’s stunning coastline makes for a perfect holiday stop off for any traveller.

With so many beaches and coastal views stretched out along this part of Western Australia you could spend forever in this part of the country and […]

As anybody who’s undertaken the […]


Vivonne Bay

Vivonne Bay is considered the best beach in all of Australia after being reviewed by Sydney University covering aspects like water clarity and cleanliness. Having visited I have to admit the long sandy beach and iconic jetty (pictured above) would make for a great afternoon of beach cricket or just laying about in the sun with a picnic. The main attraction for me was the stunning colour of the water, […]


Cape Otway, Mother Nature’s Wonderland

Cape Otway is a short (in Australian terms) 4 hour drive from where I grew up yet I’ve only ever visited it once, when I was far to young to ever really appreciate it. Sure the winding roads of the Great Ocean Road were fun back then but never would I have stopped to marvel at just how great a job mother nature had done in this little part of […]
