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…

Blown away by Kiama

If you want to ‘blow yourself away’ with a perfect escape for doing plenty or doing plenty of nothing – visit Kiama. Only 1.5 hour drive south of Sydney with an exciting natural phenomenon that has given the town it’s name; Kiama actually means “where the sea makes a noise”. Apart from the celebrated Kiama Blowhole…

The Camping Caveman

Since we have been on the road for four weeks now, I have observed the habits of the male of the species and their behaviour when it comes to camping. It’s comparable to watching a David Attenborough wildlife documentary really! The alpha males tend to revert back to ‘cavemen-like’ behaviour by turning into a hunter…

50 Adventures in 50 Years

  What adventures have you had in your lifetime? My kids often say to me “Mum why don’t you get off the sofa and do something”? My reply to this criticism is “well, I have done a lot during my lifetime and now I’m resting”! So just to prove my kids wrong I am making…

The Great Macquaries

During our we uncovered two fabulous areas in NSW, Australia which I think are worthy of a mention.  The Great Macquaries – Port Macquarie located on the mid north NSW coast, and Lake Macquarie located on the central NSW coast. Both, funnily enough, are named after Governor Lachlan Macquarie, the last autocratic Governor of New South Wales who…

Driving the Green Isle

    With a name like Kathleen, I feel as if I’m part Irish. It has always been a dream of mine to visit the ‘Green Isle’ and experience what Ireland has to offer. Without any hesitation I would say that ‘Irish eyes were definitely smiling’ when we visited this island in 2008.  I was completely…
