The Great Southern – Adelaide to Brisbane aboard Australia’s new luxury train

Before I turned 30, I made a list of the things I’d like to do and achieve before hitting the big 3-0. One of those was to travel on a luxury sleeper train. It just looks so romantic and glamorous and I already love travelling by train, so it seems like the perfect trip! I…

Perth to Exmouth – The Ultimate Western Australia Road Trip

Whitsunday Islands Accommodation – Where To Stay In The Whitsundays

I first visited the Whitsundays in 2008, while travelling the east coast of Australia with my sister. A boozy night in Airlie Beach followed by some rough weather conditions meant that I spent my first day in the Whitsunday Islands being sick over the side of our boat. Far from ideal. However, I do remember…
