Australia: Sydney Harbour Bridge Climb!!!

So what do you buy as a treat for your husband, who is afraid of heights, for his 40th birthday? A Sydney Bridge Climb of course!!!!

Australia: Quick trip to Manly, New South Wales

ARRGGGHHHH the biggest regret from my time in Australia is not spending more time here!!!! Manly had been recommended by sooo many people and what did we do? Left it until the day before we were leaving Sydney – idiots! We hot-footed it down to Circular Quay and jumped on the ferry over to Manly. They run frequently, on the day we visited it was…

Australia: Bondi Baby! Sydney

Bondi is one of the most visited tourist attractions in Australia and is home to one of the most famous beaches in the world – Bondi beach. Bondi itself is 4 miles east of Sydney although it feels a lot further.

Australia: Sydney, New South Wales

Sydney…..where to start with Sydney? Some people love Sydney, some people hate Sydney. The Marmite of Australia if you will. I myself aired on the side of loving it! Our apartment block (The Meriton Serviced Apartments Campbell Street) was right in the middle of Thai Town, bordering China Town and right opposite the Capitol Theatre (which is currently showing Wicked – saw it on Broadway…

Australia: 24 Hours in Byron Bay, New South Wales

Byron Bay oh Byron Bay……how I dream of Byron Bay. We arrived late afternoon into Byron Bay and the second we did I instantly became ‘chilled out’. Following a 3 hour drive in our immaculate Kombi Ronnie we were ready for a leg stretch and a beer. I had tried to pre-book a campsite from the UK but it seemed that all the campsites within…
