Brisbane And Laidley

Australia, Queensland Add comments

We bid Gina farewell on Monday afternoon as she hopped on a plane to Sydney, bound for Los Angeles and home to her family after almost five months here in Australia.  We didn’t spend much time in Brisbane, a couple of hours exploring the South Bank precinct before meeting up for the night with my […]

The Rainforest Way

Australia, New South Wales, Queensland Add comments

We actually started our tour of the Rainforest Way in-between our stay with Matt and Anna, and when we met with Gina back in Byron last Wednesday.  Our initial foray into the hinterland took us through Bangalow, the quaint hilltop settlement of Federal and through the magnificent Nightcap National Park.  Nightcap hasn’t had National Park […]

Planet View: S28°38.317’ E153°36.296’ Street View: S28°38.317’ E153°36.296’ What an awesome spot!  Both Lisa and I had visited Byron before, around the time when we met over 10 years ago in Adelaide (and Lisa also when she was five).  We loved the laid back little beach town as much as we both remembered when we […]

Coffs Harbour To Yamba

Australia, New South Wales Add comments

It was a picturesque drive through the rainforests and Eucalyptus bushland out of the mountains from Nymboi Binderay National Park into Coffs Harbour.  As we came out of the foothills to the outskirts of Coffs Harbour the bushland was replaced by groves of banana trees, something for which Coffs Harbour is famous.  Acres upon acres […]

Planet View: S34°51.798’ E138°28.728’ Street View: S34°51.798’ E138°28.728’ Back to Adelaide for a few days to attend wedding: I was asked to be best man for Sam Opperman, who was next to me at the altar in Fiji five years ago when Lisa and I were married.  We were lucky to have our visit coincide […]

The Central Coast

Australia, New South Wales Add comments

From Barrington Tops National Park we stopped off in Gloucester for enough time for Lisa to make a few phone calls over Skype while I hunted for a local bakery (no luck…), before continuing eastward toward the coast.  We made a beeline for South West Rocks, a small peninsula between Nambucca and Kempsey on the […]
