FOOL YOU., THERE'S NO PLACE LIKE HOME,
BUT TRAVELING IS FUN.
Western Australia and it's famed Margaret River wine region, sits a mere three and a half hour drive South West of it's capital Perth. Of course the wineries are the main focus of the area, where you can find some major players, big names like Leeuwin, Voyager and Cape Mantelle to name a few. There are also some lovely boutique wineries here as well. The Peninsula from Busselton in the North to Augusta in the South can be driven in just over an hour if you stick to the main highway, or take your time and drive leisurely down Caves Road. To add to the draw of this lovely neck of the woods is the coastline. It is a surfers paradise, with lovely beaches and coves which are also ideal for the less energetic to laze on. The rocky coastlines are fun to explore, throw in some caves, a couple of lighthouses and gourmet food shops - you will have much to see and do.
The lobby of our Port Douglas accommodation had an array of leaflets, letting us know the many wonderful things we could do with our time in Far North Queensland.
One leaflet in particular caught my eye though, and I was very excited to experience it's offerings.
Having always been interested in art in all it's forms, I thought how wonderful to be able to experience creating my own piece of Aboriginal Art.
We decided to take advantage of a four day weekend in Singapore due to the SG50 celebrations, so we tacked on some extra days, giving us a 10 day break. Of course, being such good planners, we left it all a bit late, so booking flights and accommodation proved a bit of a challenge as all our first choices were fully booked. So my advice would be, plan ahead and book early. August in this part of Australia is a little bit popular so it seems.
Yes, that is me on top of the Sydney Harbour Bridge and no, it is not a product of Photo Shop, I really did do the Bridge Climb lol!!
I was lucky enough to get to Sydney this past week, accompanying my husband who was going on business. This was my first visit to Australia, a place I have been longing to get to for quite a while now.
