    HIKE TO WINDIN FALLS, FAR NORTH QUEENSLAND’S TABLELANDS

    Windin Falls is a spectacular waterfall located within Wooroonooran National Park in Tropical North Queensland.It takes about two hours from Cairns, plus a 5-km-hike before uncovering it.Being not easy to reach makes it even more rewarding to get to.

UPDATE, MAY 2021 WINDIN FALLS ACCIDENT: unfortunately a hiker lost her life at Windin Falls yesterday. As she was reportedly visiting after heavy…

    SOUTH AUSTRALIA ITINERARY: 2-3 WEEKS ON THE ROAD

Landscapes in South Australia change dramatically from hills and wine regions to dry salt lakes, from the arid outback to some of most amazing coastlines of Australia.That’s why it’s particularly important to plan your itinerary ahead before leaving your safe base in the capital city Adelaide. You don’t want to miscalculate the distances and find yourselves in the middle of…

    WHAT TO SEE IN HOBART, THE CAPITAL OF TASMANIA

    Hobart is the capital of the insular state of Tasmania, in the southeast of Australia.It’s a young city like the rest of Australia, with little more than 200 years of history. Nevertheless its past as penal settlement and present as quiet harbour town make of Hobart a characteristic destination, different from Australian metropolis like Sydney and Melbourne.Thanks to its small dimension – Hobart counts some 200,000 inhabitants – it’s easy to move quickly from one place to the next to visit the surroundings in few days.We spent 4 days in Hobart during our recent 2-week roadtrip in Tasmania, which you can read about here.

    LIFE IN THE PACIFIC OCEAN: THE REPUBLIC OF VANUATU

    Last Spring, having to get out and back into Australia in order to have our medical cover renewed during our first year of Working Holiday Visa, we had to take a “forced holiday”.Such a problem!Taking a look around us on the world map we ruled out the farthest and most expensive Fiji, Cook Islands and Polinesia, and decided to opt for a much lesser known destination: Vanuatu. We ventured out driven by curiosity, without even knowing what to expect, and we returned back charmed and enriched by such a small and remote country.
