Field of Light Uluru by Bruce Munro

Last week I was fortunate enough to be part of the Media launch for the Bruce Munro Field of Light. We boarded the coach at 5am bound for a unique desert destination.

Discovering the Top End with AAT Kings

I’m guilty of not exploring our big backyard. My friends and colleagues will attest to the fact that I jump on planes and holiday overseas any chance I get. So when I was given the opportunity to travel to the Top End of Australia earlier this year to learn more about AAT Kings products my eyes were...

Meet Saskia

I’m in love. Her name is Saskia. She’s a petite girl with big, beautifully proportioned fluffy ears and as Terri Irwin put it, a face that looks like she’s been “drawn as a Disney character”. When Saskia held me last weekend, my heart melted. This little female koala with just one arm changed someth...

A True Taste of Tasmania

When I think of Tasmania, what comes to mind is the crisp air, fresh and untainted by high rises and heaving populations. It hits you as soon as you step off the plane. Then it’s the feel of luxury and unpretentious opulence and the hidden gems, backstreets filled with quirky villages and stunning c...

A day in the life of a foodie in Melbourne

When travelling there appears to be an unspoken rule that one must indulge in the delicious cuisine that each destination serves up (I won’t be arguing with that). For Melbourne the list is endless, on my recent trip I was astounded by how this beautiful city is so besotted by its own love for food,...

A memorable trip to the Top End

June and July in Melbourne are cold! It was great to break away from the temperatures where going outside is no fun and experience a three day escape and adventure to the very Top End of Australia!

Exploring the waterfalls of the Top End!

The sun was burning, the humidity was extreme and we’d been driving for an hour and a half. We hopped off the coach, eager to climb down the 150 stairs that would lead us to Florence Falls.
