Hidden City

One of our first road trips after reaching Sydney was to take a short trip down to the nation’s capital – Canberra. We did the majority of museums and galleries and also did a tour of the Parliament Building. With that trip done we ticked Canberra off our list – it had been done. Fast […]

Let Loosa in Noosa

With a big trip planned to Europe later in the year we would have to maximise our Bank Holidays to see more of this great country. April and ANZAC day gave us an opportunity to see more of Queensland. Our destination would be Noosa although we would take different paths to get there… John had […]

Already we had seen some Tree Frogs and Boyd Dragons. We also went snorkeling with some Turtles but it was time to up the […]
