8 years ago, I went sailing in the Whitsundays for the first time. It was quite literally at the top of my to-do list when I first moved to Australia in December 2014, and let me tell you – it did not disappoint.

There are few things I love more than discovering hidden gems and underrated destinations on my world travels. Is there anything better than feeling like you’ve found a slice of paradise that not many other people seem to know about?
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!

I’m usually skeptical about things that are uber-popular, but after a good long while of being stubborn I often come around and jump on that bandwagon.
As of now, I’ve been caravanning around Australia for 3 months. That’s 90 straight days of calling a tiny metal box home and towing it halfway across the country, something I NEVER envisioned myself doing – yet here we are!
I’ve visited a LOT of places in Australia in the cumulative 7 years I’ve lived in this country, but one that had eluded me up until late 2020 is the very-popular (particularly among snow sport enthusiasts) Kosciuszko National Park.
When most people (myself included, until recently) think of Kosciuszko National Park, they picture mountains (and maybe snow). It is Australia’s premier alpine destination, after all.
But in reality, Kozzie is absolutely MASSIVE.
So what else is there to see in Australia after you’ve done Sydney, the Great Barrier Reef, and the Outback?
LOTS of things. SO many things! Some more popular and touristed than others… others, more off the beaten path.

The Blue Mountains are a favorite Sydney weekend getaway and day trip hotspot for locals and tourists alike. Featuring lush eucalyptus forests, waterfalls, and sensational cliffside views, most any Blue Mountains hike is guaranteed to knock your socks off.
