Essential Australia – The Great Ocean Road

Continuing from last years Essential Australia series, we now move onto what is to me the highlight of the state of Victoria, the Great Ocean Road.

Appropriately named the Great Ocean Road is probably Australia’s most iconic road, stretching 243 km along the south-east coast between Torquay (just below Melbourne) and Allansford … More Essential Australia – The Great Ocean Road

Essential Australia – Cape Range

To our dismay, when we lived in Australia for 12 months we never got to experience Cape Range National Park. The reason for this was that it is situated halfway between Perth and Broome on the Western Coast of Australia (1,000 km from either). It is literally in the middle of nowhere!

We rectified this recently on a campervan tour on the Western Coast, and it was the best decision ever! Cape Range fights it out with Broome as our most essential place to visit in all of Australia… So why the high praise? … More Essential Australia – Cape Range

Oz Experience Bus – Revealed

We have been fielding questions recently about the Oz Experience bus tours that operate in Australia. As detailed in our recent tour company blog post, I used this service twice when I was a little younger, one to travel from Sydney to Cairns and the other from Sydney to Darwin via Melbourne. All tour companies have their positives and negatives, and this company has had a lot of press for being a party bus or aka ‘f**k bus’ (not my words). … More Oz Experience Bus – Revealed

Essential Australia – Fraser Island

Continuing the Australian Essentials segment, no list would be complete without Fraser Island. In all honesty it is probably our favorite essential experience of Australia’s eastern coast.

Fraser Island is the largest sand island in the world, with an eclectic mix of beautiful beach, crystal clear freshwater lakes, dense forest and stunning rock vistas. Located just off the town of Hervey Bay, in between Brisbane and Rockhampton, the island is renowned as an experience not to be missed … More Essential Australia – Fraser Island

Essential Australia – Uluru

The center of Australia is mainly overlooked when contemplating a short trip to Australia and for good reason. It’s vast, it’s barren, it’s void of civilisation and it’s home to some of the countries most extreme temperatures.

However within this vast wilderness there is an extremely popular draw, the iconic rock of Uluru (better known as Ayres Rock). You’d be surprised that it is over 200 miles from the nearest largest town which is Alice Springs, and nearly a three hour flight from Sydney. … More Essential Australia – Uluru
