    1 YEAR OF TRAVEL ON THE ROAD IN AUSTRALIA

    Just one week left to the end of our first year of travel in Australia. First, yes, because there’s going to be a second year as well. It’s been a year full of emotions, in which we made new meetings, discovered incredible places, saw rare animal species, made our dreams come true, and covered lots and lots of kilometers. Over 15,000 km’s on the road with our van through 5 states of huge and fascinating Australia.But let’s start from the beginning. LANDING IN AUSTRALIA Last June 2018, after trips of one week to Western Thailand and one month to Indonesia from Java to Bali, we were boarding our plane from…

    QUEENSLAND TROPICALE DEL NORD – LA NOSTRA GUIDA ITINERARIO

    Con Queensland Tropicale del Nord (Tropical North Queensland TNQ) ci si riferisce alla vastissima area nell’angolo nord orientale dell’Australia, fra la città di Mackay fino in cima a Cape York, il punto più a nord del continente australiano.

    CAIRNS, TROPICAL NORTH QUEENSLAND – AUSTRALIA

Indeed, we are located far from Australia’s biggest cities, Melbourne is about 3.000 km away… WHAT TO DO IN CAIRNS, TROPICAL NORTH QUEENSLAND The weather in TNQ…

  • PACIFIC HOTEL CAIRNS – REVIEW

    Our experience in Australia began in Cairns, Far North Queensland. Here we had the opportunity to get a first impression of Australian hospitality, being guests at Pacific Hotel Cairns.
