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 town of gnomes living in the West Australian bush? They have little gnome schools, gnome buses, gnome community groups and tiny little gnome houses. You can even bring new citizens to the gnome town.
If someone told me the population of Gnomesville was over 5,000, I’d say, ‘yeah, that sounds about right!’
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”

A little video from my recent road trip through Western Australia’s wildflower country in the mid-west, just four hours north of Perth!Continue reading “Video: Western Australia’s Wildflower Country”
One of the greatest wildflower displays in the world happens each year in Western Australia, as a wave of northerly blooms descend 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.
There are around 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”
There’s a place, just 60km south of Sydney where you can see a constellation of blue dots in the dark, that come from the glow worms. In fact, there are a number of places where you can see them on the east coast of Australia but the most convenient would have to be the Helensburgh Glow Worm Tunnels.Continue reading “Helensburgh Glow Worm Tunnel”

“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”
