For the last leg of our trip around Ireland, we paid a visit to one of Ireland’s most iconic spots, the Giant’s Causeway. Depending on which side of the fence you sit, it’s the result of a 60 million year old volcanic eruption….or……. ….It’s the beginning of a giant pathway made by a giant called … More The Giant’s Causeway
Last week we had the opportunity to venture North once more and check out the Serengeti of Tasmania. It’s home to vast herds of Elephants, Wildebeest and Zebra roaming the expansive plains. That’s the Serengeti anyway. Narawntapu National Park is located east of the port city of Devonport where the Spirit of Tasmania brings ferry … More Supermodels of Narawntapu National Park
There is a special place on Mount Wellington that only appears a handful of times each year. It is the Disappearing Tarn and is formed only after a heavy rainfall or large dumping of snow.

It’s been a bit of a hiatus between adventures after poor Gemma was unwell for a bit. The itch to get out and explore more of Tassie was at last scratched last weekend, as we took a trip South……waaaaaaaay South.

As we got closer to our tents we saw a possum sitting outside Mo’s tent, munching on a bit of bread. “Where’d he get that bread from?” we asked each other. The … More Maria Island camping trip

I barely know where to start with this post. I could write a big long winded description of where we went and what we did. I could describe how to get there, where to stay and highlights along the way but this time I think I’ll just let the photos do the explaining and add … More Binalong Bay and beyond.
These Instameets keep getting better and better! For our latest adventure we headed to the south of Tasmania. Our first port of call was the exceedingly delightful Chapel Lane Hall, a former church with over 100 years of history under its roof. The space has been lovingly converted into self-contained accommodation with tasteful touches and … More Far South Instameet: Trains, caves and a nice cup of tea.
My first trip to the Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery was a bit of a rushed affair as I only had an hour before they were closing. As a result I completely missed a whole section of TMAG, the Bond Store Gallery. It is located within the old Bond Store which was built in the … More TMAG: Bond Store Gallery
