With all the traveling I’ve done, you’d think I’d have gone hot air ballooning before. But nope! Somehow that item was still on my bucket list, waiting to get checked off… until very recently!
If you’re searching for hidden gems in Australia, then boy do I have a tip for you!
Lawn Hill National Park, located in Outback Queensland near absolutely nothing of interest, is the best place you’ve probably never heard of in Australia.
If you haven’t heard of Mount Gambier or the Limestone Coast of South Australia, I’d say you’re in the majority. Most Aussies probably don’t even know about this very under-touristed part of their own country.
Sooooooo, it’s late April, and this 2021 review post is nearly 4 months late now. Oops!
I think it may be my longest blog post to-date, clocking in at ~8400 words excluding this intro which I’m writing last.
One of my greatest surprises on our big Aussie road trip has been how much I enjoyed Cairns.
It’s the main hub for exploring the Great Barrier Reef, but it’s also very close to dozens of other incredible natural attractions.
Oops, I’m falling more and more behind with these monthly updates! Part of me wants to ditch them because there are many other posts I should be writing (I’ve barely blogged about any locations from this road trip!).
Aaaaand another month spent in hot and humid Far North Queensland. In November, the heat and humidity start dialing up for wet season, so that was our cue to start heading south for summer (it still feels weird to me to say that – in the northern hemisphere, usually you head south for winter!).
If you’re planning a trip to Cairns and have done any amount of research, then you know that there is an insane amount of amazing things to see and do here.
This monthly recap is a bit on the late side, but I swear my tardiness has nothing to do with the quality of the month.
Earlier this year, I received an e-mail that immediately piqued my interest.
You’d think that a travel blogger would be receiving all sorts of riveting e-mails with offers to travel the world and experience all sorts of fun activities and unique accommodations, but honestly… the vast majority of my e-mails are spam that I can’t hit the Delete button fast enough on.
