Stepping out of our Comfort Zones

The definition of Comfort Zone is “a behavioural state within which a person operates in an anxiety-neutral condition, using a limited set of behaviours to deliver a steady level of performance, usually without a sense of risk”.

That is why many of us holiday in Bali, Phuket and Fiji, because it is a similar distance and a whole lot cheaper to travel to. Hence The West is unchartered waters for many Aussies. The ultimate Western Australia road trip…

Camping & Caravanning 101: Essentials

  We have been on the road for 13 weeks now attempting to circumnavigate the coastline of Australia from Queensland to Western Australia in a clockwise direction in a 16 foot caravan.  It has not been without its ‘teething problems’ and lots of ‘counting to ten’, as it really does test one’s patience at times!  You tend to…

The Wild West Eyre Peninsula

  With rugged cliffs that tower over the pounding Southern Ocean, secluded white sandy beaches bordered by mountainous sand dunes and native scrubland, this coast is unique and as untamed as the ‘Wild West’.  There are cliff top drives with views that will take your breath away and calm watered bays of picturesque little coastal…

The Awesome East Eyre Peninsula

After a quick visit to the Yorke Peninsula, we travelled in a northwards direction with the majestic Flinders Ranges to the east and Spencer Gulf to the west, towards Port Augusta, which is befittingly called the ‘Crossroads of Australia’ where Sydney, Perth, Adelaide and Darwin rail lines intersect.  It was the beginning of all places…

A Coppery Coast: Moonta, Kadina & Wallaroo

Flouncing around the Fleurieu

Once we left the Murray River Mouth and Lakes country we came across a sneaky little peninsula which is only 60 kilometres in length and about 30 kilometres in width which tapers into a cape at the bottom which is the gateway to the fabulous Kangaroo Island. The Fleurieu Peninsula is 45 minutes from the…

Lighthouses of New South Wales

I don’t know about you, but I love a lighthouse, particularly the lighthouses of New South Wales. There is something alluring and enticing about them. It may be because: a) They are strategically located to alert ships of danger, or b) They are situated up high on a bluff or on a hilltop with the most…
