In what may have been the most spontaneous trip I’ve ever taken, last week I decided to join my good friend (and fellow travel blogger!) Marijs on a road trip from Sydney to Byron Bay.
Welp, I think it’s safe to say that the more distracted I get with weekend trips, road trips, and other adventures, the worse I am about blogging and Instagramming and even reading.
If you’re looking for a weekend trip from Melbourne that isn’t the Great Ocean Road or one of the other usual suspects (lovely as they are, sometimes you just want something different, right?)… consider heading up to Mt.
I’ve been waiting a really long time to compose this post and, after FINALLY experiencing Trip #7 for myself last month, I think it’s time to unveil it!
Melbourne is a fantastic (and “liveable”) city, but there’s some equally amazing stuff worth experiencing elsewhere in Victoria.
To give you an idea of how much I planned for my recent road trip around High Country, Victoria: I didn’t actually know I’d be doing a road trip until about 3 weeks beforehand, and I didn’t know where I’d be heading until about 2 days before picking up the rental vehicle.
One of the very first things I noted when I moved to Sydney on a work & holiday visa a few years ago was that on Sundays, there’s a $2.60 cap on public transport for the whole day.
I think March and April can best be described as the much-needed calm after the January/February storm. With the stress and life admin BS that accompanies housing drama finally behind me, my new flatmate moved in and I got serious about making this apartment my own.
If you’re into stargazing and mountain adventures without any tourists around, boy do I have the perfect Sydney getaway for you!
The Warrumbungles probably aren’t going to make it onto any visitor’s Australia bucket list, but that only makes it better for locals who do have the time and inclination to schlep out to bumble*ck New South Wales for a semi-private hit of nature.
