Australia: Sydney to Adelaide Train Journey

| January 9, 2012 | 3 Comments

As our last day in Sydney approached we started to both get a bit nervous about our choice of transport to the red centre of Australia, Alice Springs and Uluru (Ayers Rock). Twenty four hours on a train journey in a seat; would we sleep, would we we bored senseless, would we get cabin fever? […]

We were fast running out of time in Sydney, but we knew that the walk from Coogee to Bondi walk was one that we were not going to miss. A Great Australian Hangover Cure, Coogee to Bondi walk After a heavy night it was an early start and short bus ride from Newtown to Coogee.  The […]

Australia: Sydney Opera House and Bridge

There are some who believe that architecture isn’t important, that it is merely a straightforward academic function to design a building that serves the purpose of the activities that are going into it, across it or under it. Those people are fools and the two icons that stand proudly facing each other across Sydney Harbour […]

Australia: New Years Eve Sydney

Am I still dreaming or did we really just spend  Sydney New Years Eve together watching the fireworks from what has to be the best free NYE vantage point in Sydney?  No I’m not, we have the pictures and videos to prove it (you do stop taking pictures etc as you become entranced by the display).  As […]

Australia: Gold Coast to Sydney

Gold Coast Gadgets Weather and Driving  Apologies for the delay in the blog update, we have suffered a slight technical hitch.   The laptop had a bit of a fit and the screen decided that it did not want to behave as a screen but instead as a kaleidoscope of multi coloured pixels. This set me […]

Fraser Island, Noosa & National Parks

Just like the Radio Times Christmas TV guide, this is a bumper edition.  So sit back get a glass of your favourite tipple and read on. The weather has been a bit mean to us over the last few days, gradually getting worse (the worst Australia has seen in 65 years.) Did this little bit […]

Melbourne to Adelaide Gold Coast As I write this we have now spent the last three days on the Gold Coast in Broadbeach, just south of Surfers Paradise.   If we had stuck to Plan A we would have spent these days in Adelaide (in torrential rain as it turned out) and be on our way […]

Australia: Melbourne Travel Thoughts

G’day!  We’ve had a fab time in good ‘old’ Melbourne. I say old, as although this place is on a massive expansion plan for 2020, the city retains an ‘old-fashioned’ charm.  Melbourne is pretty big already, as far as global players go, you’ll see apartment blocks being erected at a phenomenal rate and  many historic and characterful buildings, […]

Having got over our jet lag, our last day in Victoria was given over to mother nature and a trip to view what millions of years of evolution and erosion can do to a coastline. The Great Ocean Road runs through the south of Victoria, Australia, along the Bass Strait hugging the coastline from Torquay to Warrnambool […]

Melbourne by Night, or is it Day ? It has been three days since we arrived in Melbourne (it is now the evening of Wednesday 14th as I write this).   I am afraid we are having a right old battle with Jetlag.  I have yet to manage to keep awake beyond 8pm in the evening local […]
