Fancy getting off the tourist trail and exploring some of Australia’s best beaches and untouched wilderness? Then head to Western Australia, the perfect place for a camper adventure! The next question is, do you go north to Broome or south to Esperance? For the most beautiful beaches in the world and for shorter driving times definitely go south! After asking many locals 9 out of 10 recommended this route – and WOW I am so glad we took their advice. So buckle up, and take a look at what you could do on your camper adventure…
This week’s blog comes from traveller, explorer and blogger, Scotty Pass. He’s giving us the full lowdown on what to do in Cairns (especially if you’re tight on time)…
Planning a tropical getaway during the upcoming winter months but stuck on where to explore? Why not give North Queensland a visit the next time you’re thinking of travelling tropical? If you’re after an action packed weekend or just up for a bit of rest and relaxation Cairns has got you covered no matter what the occasion. On my recent journey to Tropical North Queensland I had the intention of participating in as much as possible, in what was possibly the shortest amount of time and most strict schedule imaginable. The plan – adventure, photograph and see as much of Cairns in less than 48 hours!
Picture 74 islands slung across the Great Barrier Reef, these little islands are a showstopper on any East Coast trip! It’s safe to say once you’re there you’ll never want to leave. Our Aussie main man Adrian, is here to share with you his love for this jaw dropping bunch of islands.
I am in complete agreement with the boys from The Lonely Island when they’re singing about feeling like the “King of the world when you’re on a boat like Leo”, especially when that boat is cruising 5 knots on the Whitsunday passage, next stop Hayman Island!
The Great Barrier Reef is a water baby’s haven, with the reef covering more than 3,000 square km there is plenty for you to explore and see. Depending on the season you visit this world heritage listed site you can dive with whales, sharks, hang with Crush and his family on the EAC dude (AKA sea turtles), glide with one of the giants of the ocean (AKA manta rays) and pretty much see all different species of fish under the sun.
But where should you go to see all these incredible creatures of the big blue? We’ve narrowed down our favourite spots. Check our favourites:

This week’s blog comes from our very own Aussie social media guru… Alice Tolson! She’s here to tell us about the best foodie spots in her home away from home, Noosa.
Noosa, is a foodie’s dream destination and makes for a chilled-out stop along the buzzing sunshine coast. I would pretty much call Noosa my second home. I spent majority of my summer and September holidays as a kid trolling along Hastings Street and having a love/hate relationship with the steps to Upper Hastings Street. But more importantly, I fell in love with the food at Noosa and that’s what keeps me coming back every year. So here are my go to places:
