Perth and the very large state of Western Australia (it’s 10x the size of the UK!) has a lot to offer. From endless days of sunshine, uncrowded alabaster beaches that line the coast, to top quality produce in its restaurants and some of the friendliest locals around. A visit to Perth can add a lot more to your Australian holiday experience!Continue reading “Why Perth Needs To Be Added To Your Australia List”

Did you know there is a gnome town prospering in the West Australian bush, just 2 hours south of Perth? Gnomesville has their own little gnome schools, gnome buses, gnome community groups and tiny little gnome houses. You can even bring new citizens to this gnome town.
Upon first entering Gnomesville you may feel your inner child squeal with glee. You might come across an Elvis gnome, Gnomi Campbell, a bikini-clad gnome sunbathing or a downright rude gnome bending over with his pants down showing his freckle! But the further you walk into Gnomesville, the more gnomes you see, or rather the more eyes you feel staring back at you. I just couldn’t ignore the slightly creepy feeling the more I explored.Continue reading “Gnomesville: The Little Gnome Town in the West Australian Bush”
Western Australia has a number of pink lakes, caused by a combination of high salinity and salt-loving algae that create that hot pink water.

One of the greatest wildflower displays in the world happens each year in Western Australia. A wave of northerly blooms descends from June onwards, heading south as the weather warms into spring and early summer. There are lots of different regions to explore either by tour or self-drive roadtrip.
You can find over 12,500 species of flora, 60% which are unique to Western Australia, scattered over landscapes of red dirt, rocky outcrops, tall timber forests or sandy coastal dunes.Continue reading “West Australian Wildflower Road Trip”

The Port Arthur Paranormal Investigation Tour goes way beyond a normal ghost tour!
I’m someone that sits on the fence when it comes to the spirit world, I don’t disbelieve in the paranormal, but until I see irrefutable proof, there will always be a little part of my brain that will say ‘weeeell, maybe’.
The rest of my brain, however, wholeheartedly believes in ghosts and what-not and the little, disbelieving corner of grey goop lets it because it’s nice to think our departed loved ones are still around and that we can communicate with them.
It was that optimistic part of my brain that jumped at the chance to join a Paranormal Investigation Tour at the very haunted and historic Port Arthur World Heritage site on Tasmania’s south-east coast.Continue reading “Port Arthur Paranormal Investigation Tour – Getting My Freak On”
“Hi, do you know where we can find Dinner?”
“You might have to be more specific, what kind of meal were you after?”
“No, it’s called Dinner. Dinner by Heston Blumenthal, that’s the name of the restaurant.”
It’s an awkward but simplistically accurate name, although being a Heston restaurant you would assume a name like ‘The Curious & Bewildering Dinner Experience’, would be more apt.
Its dimly lit interior, hidden away in the echelons of Melbourne’s Crown Casino, deceives the eyes but the space has been well designed to ensure the tables themselves are well lit. It’s dark but warm, minimalist yet sleek and stylish. Continue reading “Give Me All the Meat Fruit – Dinner and Theatre with Heston”
