African Safari in the Midst of Surburban Australia

Our recent trip to Melbourne allowed us to visit Werribee Open Plan Zoo. It was a wonderful and affordable day out. It’s nice to see the animals out on replica Savannah Plains instead of enclosed cages. Our favourite was the Wild African Cat Encounter where we went behind the scenes and got to have a cuddleContinue reading “African Safari in the Midst of Surburban Australia”

Living the Dream

What is living the dream? Is it the Great Australian Dream of owning a house, raising a family and having a successful career? Or is it being happy? Pursuing what you want to pursue? When you want to pursue it? Who know’s what they want? Really? Who? Tell me? I sure don’t. I love theContinue reading “Living the Dream”

Our Own Doorstep

I love Melbourne. I don’t think I could live there but I do love a good visit. We stayed a week this time and if anything our stay could of been a little longer. Our driver from the airport thought we were mad for staying so long and his statement got me thinking. We don’t appreciateContinue reading “Our Own Doorstep”

Moving a Little Further Down the Road

We have now been calling Tobermorey home for five weeks. Time has flown and we haven’t really stopped for air until this weekend. The time has come where we are moving next door (over a 100km away) to Tarlton Downs for a few weeks. It is sad to leave Tobermorey behind especially now that IContinue reading “Moving a Little Further Down the Road”

A Very Different Track

The Birdsville Track is iconic. It is a feat for many modern-day travellers, 4WD enthusiasts and caravanners. The “track” we drive these days is a world away from that of our predecessors. The road now is practically a dirt highway mostly smooth with rocky patches here and there. Back in the day soft sand dune,Continue reading “A Very Different Track”

Ain’t No Mountain High Enough

Wow I can now definitely see why the Flinder’s Ranges is a 4WD and traveller’s paradise. It was amazing to say the least and we only scratched the surface of what the Flinder’s has to offer. As it was our first visit and a short one at the that we decided to base ourself inContinue reading “Ain’t No Mountain High Enough”
