After 4 hours of driving from Yalara to Kings Canyon, four stiff bodies were eager to stretch their legs and go for a hike up and around Kings Canyon. We arrived at Kings Canyon at 3 o’clock in the afternoon, and began the hike towards the Canyon.

At the beginning of the walk, we read up on the history of the canyon and noticed the hinking guidelines. Signs suggested to allow 3-4 hours to complete the Kings Canyon walk. Upon reading this sign, we were filled with a little concern, knowing that the sun sets at 6pm, and so we would need to be off the canyon and back at the car by that time. This only allowed us three hours to complete the walk. Despite this realization, we decided to take the gamble and started off on what we would soon find out to be a fairly challenging walk. The first few hundred meters of the Kings Canyon walk is stairs up a steep incline. It is also known as “heart attack hill”. It took us 45 minutes to climb the steps of this first mountain. We were filled with comfort once we arrived at the top of the mountain, as we found a defibrillator and radio hanging on a pole. Whilst none of us required the defibrillator, we did pause for a moment once at the top to regain our breath and energy.

At this point the hardest part of the walk was over, and we began to walk around the top of the canyon. It took us a further 45mins to get to the middle of the top of the canyon. From this point we could see the entire canyon, and a long way into the distance; a continuing great expanse of red dirt. The view was absolutely dazzling. We could see people lining the opposite side of the canyon, standing on the edge yelling out ‘koo-wee’! The echo was incredible!

 

A few minutes later we rounded a corner and stopped. We stood still and listened. We could hear the silence. It was deafening. Such a surreal feeling.

Fifteen minutes later we were walking down steps into a stunning place called ‘The Garden of Eden’, which was a little paradise hidden within the rocks of the canyon. There was a small river running through the bottom, trees, plants and flowers all over and a little wallaby hopping along. We crossed the bridge over the river, and began the ascent out of the Garden of Eden, back up to the top of the Canyon.

 

We continued to follow the arrows around the canyon until we began the descent back to the carpark. As we were walking down the last mountain we looked out at the stunning view of the sun setting in the outback.

Once back at the car the four tired bodies climbed into the car to head to the Kings Canyon Resort cabin which they were staying at, for a well earnt sleep.

If hiking the Canyon doesn’t interest you, here are some suggestions of other things you may like to do or see:


Sleep Well – There are a few properties not far from Kings Canyon where you can rest your head. Kings Creek Station is close by, and is an operational camel and cattle station. Kings Canyon Station has camping, glamping and safari cabin options, and you can request dinner under the stars. You can also enjoy a special five-course dinner under moonlight while staying at Kings Canyon Resort. This ‘Under a Desert Moon’ experience is held four nights a week between April and October. Kings Canyon Resort has standard and spa rooms in the hotel, as well as caravan and camp sites in a holiday park.

Fly – Take flight over King Canyon on a scenic helicopter from Kings Creek Station. The flight takes in breathtaking mountain Carmichael Crag, as well as the Garden of Eden and Kathleen Springs. Kings Creek Station also runs quad bike tours over the red sand dunes.


Whether walking, flying, or riding you are sure to have a magnificent time exploring one of Australia’s most popular tourist spots; the Kings Canyon.

Hahndorf

Hahndorf

HahndorfFour excited faces looked out at the beautiful town of Hahndorf as they drove down the main street to find a carpark. They watched the small stone buildings go past, looking out for the infamous knife shop, pretzel shop and cheese shop. Finally finding a carpark on the side of the cobblestone main street, the four hopped out to begin the exploration of the German town.

Hahndorf is a quaint little German town approximately half an hour out of Adelaide’s CBD.

The German history of Hahndorf can be traced all the way back to 1838 when a man named George Fife Angus, who was a director of a South Australian company, traveled to London to assist in promoting colonisation. Whilst on this trip, George met a Pastor who was attempting to help German Lutherans, who were being persecuted by the King of Prussia, to immigrate to safer places. George’s heart broke for these people, and so he convinced this Pastor that South Australia was a great place for these German Lutherans to move to. He then provided the immigrants with a large sum of money to assist in their move. Once in South Australia, the German Lutherans negotiated some land for farming, and built the town of Hahndorf.

Hahndorf is made up of beautiful original stone houses, a couple of churches, a large variety of shops, delightful cafes, and some animal and strawberry farms. It has a homely feel to it which makes you feel instantly welcome and comfortable. You could easily spend a few days in Hahndorf, visiting the various cafes, farms, and shops, whilst staying in a beautiful German inn, manor, or cottage.

As you walk along the main street of Hahndorf you are quickly met with delectable scents of the many different cafes and eateries, along with the sweet aroma of the soap shop, and candle store.

We made our first stop of the day at a specialty coffee cafe known as Caffeined Coffee Company. This coffee shop roasts their own beans, and poured us a delightful coffee, which would certainly pass as a high quality coffee, even by Melbourne standards.

Our next stop was the Pretzel shop; ‘The German Cake Shop’, where we purchased a couple of huge, sugary, sweet, fluffy Pretzel Donut, which we shared between two.

As we continued along the main street we popped in to smell the soaps at the Hahndorf Soap Factory, and had a look at the large array of cuckoo clocks at ‘Hahndorf Clocks and Collectibles’, before we taking a stroll through the Fairy Garden.


One of our top highlights was the Cutler’s Cottage, owned by a lovely, friendly woman and her son, where they hand make impressive knives of all shapes and sizes. We spent a large amount of time in this store looking at all the kinds of knives, from cheese knives to carving knives. The shop owner gave us some great insight into the town, its history, and even some suggestions on what else to do whilst in Adelaide.

To finish off our short trip in Hahndorf we had a cheese tasting at Udder Delights, followed by a scrumptious, mouth-watering cheese platter full of local cheeses and freshly baked Turkish bread.

Our tummies were quickly filling up with these delicious treats, however we had to make space for German sausages before we left. We tried 3 different hearty German sausages from The German Pantry, each with their own unique flavours.

Still with so many more shops and cafes and farms to visit, we were sad to leave Hahndorf after just one morning spent there. We will certainly be back to explore more of Hahndorf, and perhaps stay overnight to have an authentic German experience.

Kualoa Ranch – Hawaii’s Hollywood link.

Kualoa Ranch is a 4000 acre cattle ranch located on Oahu, Hawaii. whilst a working cattle ranch its claim to fame is as a popular tourist attraction due to the amazing list of films and tv shows filmed within its three valleys. Kaaawa Valley, Kualoa Valley and Hakipuu Valley.

Kualoa Ranch

Kualoa Ranch has been in the same family since 1850 when it was purchased of King Kamehameha III. Over that time it has had an interesting history from cattle, to sugar cane, to The military taking control during World War 2 and turning it into Kualoa airfield, and creating military bunkers on the land. To rock festivals, to its most famous claim to fame so far, the film site of the Jurassic Park films, lost, Pearl Harbour, Godzilla, Hawaii Five O episodes and many more.

Kualoa Ranch - Lost TV

If you head to Kualoa Ranch you can do a huge variety of tours from ATV, horse riding, jungle cruise and the movie tour.

We participated in the movie tour and it was great to see some of the landmark sites from some of our favorite movies.

We stopped to have a look at one of the military bunkers which has now become a film memorabilia museum.

Kualoa Ranch

At the time I was keen to keep moving to the movie sites, but looking back the museum was probably the highlight of the tour, there was more time to read about the movies, and to see all about the movies and tv shows filmed there.

It was also great to see the sites once we moved into the valley where Jurassic Park was filmed. There were some film sites where there wasn’t anything left there except a plaque showing you what they filmed but no other real props. Obviously they can’t leave much there as they continue to film in the area. However there are some fantastic sites that are iconic from some favorite movies, the log from Jurassic Park, the foot print from Godzilla and the skull area from Skull Island.

A visit to Uluru – Kata Tjuta National Park

A visit to Uluru – Kata Tjuta National Park

After the mad dash to reach the rock, four eager bodies saw the magnificent sight for the first time, Uluru, awestruck by its enormity. As the sun made it’s way to the horizon, we watched the rock light up in the most extraordinary reds. Our hearts content by its beauty and our tummies satisfied by quesadillas cooked on the camp stove.

Uluru

The Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park is a world famous national park home to two of the most iconic rock formations in the world. It expands for more than 327,414 acres and is home to a vast variety of flora and fauna including the Mala (aka Rufous Hare-Wallaby). The Mala is sacred to the Anangu people (Indigenous Australians of the Western Desert) as it holds significance in their Uluru creation stories.

Uluru

The Uluru base walk is a once in a lifetime cultural experience. As you trek the 10.6km loop, you can get a glimpse into the story of Uluru through native art on some parts of the rock. Information along the path enables you to see how Uluru fits into the history of the Anangu people. If you are not feeling up to the base walk, or you do want a little more insight from a ranger, there is a FREE Ranger Guided Walk that takes you from the Mala Carpark (at the Cultural Centre) to the base of the rock. They depart daily from 8am in October to April or 10am from May to September. The tour goes for approximately an hour and a half and gives visitors insight into the history and traditions associated with Uluru as well as traditional and contemporary Anangu life and culture.

Uluru

The Cultural Centre is your one stop shop for visitor information, traditional hand painted Anangu art, souvineers and even a bite or two to eat. It is open daily from 7am to 6pm. We attended a FREE child-friendly culture and language class with a Ranger and an Anangu man. We learnt about the different languages spoken by different aboriginal people in Australia and specifically Pitjantjatjara which is spoken by those from the area surrounding Uluru. We also got to see a thorny devil up close and ask questions about aboriginal culture.
Kata Tjuta, or the Olgars, is often the forgotten brother of Uluru. It consists of 36 domes, the highest reaching 546m above the horizon. This exceeds Uluru’s summit by 198m! Kata Tjuta means ‘many heads’ in Pitjantjatjara. There are contrasting opinions between the Anangu and Geologists regarding the formation of these landmarks. Anangu describe the travels of Kuniya (woma python women), Liru (poisonous snake man), Mala and Lungkata (blue-tongue lizard man). Geologists describe the erosion of cracks in a larger mass causing the rounded domes seen today.
There are four main walks through Kata Tjuta (see below). The Valley of the Winds Karu Lookout prompts you to gaze through natures window into an abyss of greenery and rust-red rocks, a truly unforgettable sight. This walk takes approximately an hour and is the perfect spot to enjoy a picnic lunch with a view. The full circuit track requires about half a day, including a lunch break and it is recommended to start trekking earlier in the day, especially during the summer months.
Park open hours vary throughout the year according to daylight hours. It costs $25 per adult for a three day pass or $32.50 for a yearly pass. Children aged 5-15 are $12.50 and children 4 years and below are free. Family passes are also available.
There are many options in terms of camping and lodging near the national park. Ayers Rock Resort has a population of larger than one thousand residents, making it the fourth biggest city in the a Northern Territory, following Darwin, Alice Springs and Katherine. There are many staff always happy to greet you with a smile and help to meet your every need. For families travelling in a caravan or camping, the Ayers Rock Campground is a family friendly choice. Complete with a swimming pool, playground, giant chess and volleyball courts, the campground offers a perfect place to put your feet up after a long day of exploring or driving. A petrol station is also located close to the Ayers Rock Campground.
For those wishing to stay somewhere more luxurious, there are many options. The Desert Gardens Hotel has most recently undergone a complete refurbishment, creating a modern and cultural experience for your stay in Yullara (town closest to Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park). It is a four and a half star hotel complete with a swimming pool and both premium and casual dining options. It is the home of Mingkiri Arts where you can purchase a range of Australian made crafts or view a revolving art exhibition at Arnguli Restaurant. The Wintjiri Arts and Museum is located adjacent to the Desert Gardens Hotel and is open daily from 8:30am to 5pm. The main exhibit displays a work titled “Artists in Residnece” showcasing local Anangu work, which is also available for purchase.
Emu Walk Apartments are serviced apartments** with basic facilities. Their greatest asset is their location. Situated next to the Resort Town Square, they provide easy access to the town supermarket, postal services, banks/ATM and tourist information centre.
Sails in the Desert is home to the Mulgara Gallery. It is situated in the hotels lobby and is open daily from 8:30am to 5pm. The resort is complete with a swimming pool, fine and casual dining options and the Red Ochre Spa. They also have function rooms available for business trips. The Ilkari Restaurant is open for a buffet breakfast and buffet dinner. From personal experience, the breakfast buffet is extraordinary. With a chef station to cook your choice of eggs, omelettes, pancakes or eggs Benedict, you feel las if you are dining with royalty. The waitresses don’t let you see the bottom of your teacup and do the best to facilitate any request. Antipasto options, cooked options, fresh fruits and juice as well as standard cereals, toast, porridge and yogurt allow even the pickiest of eaters an option.
The Outback Pioneer Hotel and Lodge is the perfect spot for those with a heart for astronomy. It is the Astro Hub of Yullara where tours run for both families and individuals.  A resident astronomer takes you on a journey through the life cycle of stars and gives you a gold class view of many constellations through telescopes and binoculars. The Outback Pioneer Hotel is also a fantastic stop if you are looking for a good feed at the BBQ and Bar. There is a games room complete with air hockey table, pinball machines and more, perfect for entertaining children of all ages. They are open until 10pm most nights. The Outback Pioneer Kitchen offers a cheaper alternative with light meal and take away options.
All hotels offer complimentary airport transfers, departing your hotel approximately two hours prior to scheduled flight times. There is also complimentary wifi at all hotels and the Ayers Rock Camoground as well as a complementary shuttle bus that departs out the front of each Hotel every 20 minutes. This bus takes you to the Yullara Town Square and many eateries. It does not take you to the a National Park however you can book the Uluru Express from any Hotel or hire a car for those wishing to explore the rock at their own pace.
If you find yourself adventuring to the red centre before March 31st 2018, you will have a once in a lifetime opportunity to wander through the majestic Field of Light art installation hand crafted by world famous artist Bruce Munro. Bruce travels around the world lighting up famous landmarks with handcrafted globes, creating an unforgettable sea of colour. This particular exhibit is crowned by 50,000 hand-crafted slender stems topped with frosted glass spheres. Each bulb is illuminated by one of 144 projectors powered solely by solar panels; Bruce’s first ever solar panel installation.
To those photographers out there, the magnificent reds and aubans known so famously of the rock are most vibrant as the sun hits the rock twice a day, as the sun welcomes and farewells the day. To take the most picturesque photographs, there are designated sunset and sunrise viewing areas, perfect for sipping a cup of tea and capturing the break taking view. Aim to get to these viewing areas at least half an hour before sunrise/sunset to ensure you get a car park. For sunrise/sunset times, ask at the reception of your hotel or conversely, if you have an iPhone, the weather app will inform you.
For those of you wishing to experience Uluru at a whole other level, camel tours are a fantastic way to avoid the congestion of sunset and sunrise. Each camel tour is guided by a friendly and knowledgable host who shares about the national park and the camels themselves. The Uluru Camel Farm has the largest population of wild camels in Australia and is open daily from 9am to 3pm May to October or 9am to 1pm November to April. They are a fantastic family-friendly way to enjoy the rock in all it’s beauty.
The Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park is a beautiful part of Australia and Indigenous Australian culture. We thoroughly enjoyed our short stay at the Sails in the Desert; a highlight definitely being the buffet breakfast. The enormity and novelty of Uluru never faded and we have made many memories that will last a lifetime.

Becoming a tourist. Oh the places you’ll go.” – Dr. Seuss

Oh the places you’ll go.” – Dr. Seuss

I love traveling, exploring new places, taking photos, making memories.
When I am on holidays I morph into the paparazzi. Anyone around me takes one look and can tell I am a tourist, my Nikon SLR around my neck, my backpack on my back full off all the things I need to make the most of the experience.

When I am not traveling, I am preparing for my next trip, and that feeling of wanderlust can feel make the long winters at home feel even colder, the work days longer and the mundane tasks of life feel like a world away from where I want to be.

Can you relate? Do you live with the constant desire to see more, do more, experience more?

But do you know there is a solution? Become a tourist in your own backyard. Take a Journey!

The definition of journey is

noun – an act of travelling from one place to another.

verb – travel somewhere.

Taking a journey doesn’t mean you have to travel long distance, you just have to travel from one place to another.

Whether it’s ten minutes from home or ten hours you can still make memories, and experience life, become a tourist in your own backyard.

You don’t realize how beautiful the place you live is until you look at it, with fresh eyes. With eyes that are not busy rushing from here to there. You will learn new things about where you live, and some things might surprise you?

No more sitting around you house bored, no more wasting money at the shops buying stuff because your bored. Instead you will be seeing new things, doing new things and experiencing new things.

When traveling in aeroplanes, what you wear is so important to ensure you have a comfortable trip, but it is also important to help you get through security easily as well.

  • Select shoes that are easily to slip on and off, as often you will be asked to take your shoes off to get through security.

Point Lonsdale to Queenscliff Walking trail.

Escape the hustle and bustle of the City with a visit to Point Lonsdale. Point Lonsdale is a beautiful sea side town just over 100kms from Melbourne. 


Point Lonsdale is one of the Headlands (along with Point Nepean) that frame the Rip or the heads, the only entrance for shipping coming into the port of Melbourne. It is a beautiful place to visit, to stop and have a coffee, for the kids to play at the large playground, and a magical place to walk. 


Point Lonsdale / Queenscliff now has an amazing walking trail along the beach that shows off the best of the Bellarine Peninsula’s Beaches.


The trail is called ‘the quality of life trail’ it is a walking, jogging, and cycling trail that connects Queenscliff to Point Lonsdale, (or the locals may argue connects Point Lonsdale to Queenscliff.


The local decided that they wanted encourage locals and tourists alike to enjoy the area, whilst getting fit and healthy and the 5.5km long, largely flat trail was the outcome. The trail is great for people of any fitness level, whether prams, cyclists, joggers or people wanting a more leisurely stroll. The trail is 5.5kms one way or 11kms return.

Every 500 metres there is markers to let you know the distance, there are entrances back up to the road, or down to the beach.


On my recent walk as I journeyed along snug in my beanie, gloves and warm coat, I watched in awe the amazing men and women climbing into the icy water with nothing more than bathers and a swimming cap to keep them warm. There were many other people braving the cold water on surf and body boards. 


If you are lucky you may see some freighters going through the heads, or depending on the time of year you may see Humpbacks and Southern Right whales. 

Legerwood Memorial Carvings

The sacrifices of Legerwood

In 1914, many of the then unnamed town of Legerwood, husbands, fathers, sons and brothers bravely went to fight in World War 1. Unfortunately seven of these brave men would not return.

  • Private Thomas Edward Edwards
  • Private Alan Robert Andrews
  • Private William Henry Hyde
  • Lance Corporal John Charles Ernest Riseley
  • Private Robert James Jenkins
  • Private George Peddle
  • Private John Henry Gregg McDougall

On the 15th of October in 1918, the families of these brave men planted nine trees. One in Memory of each man, one for Gallipoli and one for all the Anzacs.

But time takes it’s toll on man and on trees, and just over 80 years later, in 2001 the trees were declared a safety risk, and therefore the memorial that once stood so tall, seemed lost.

But the community did not want to see it lost, they held true to the saying “Lest we forget” and they fought to protect the memory. The Legerwood Hall and Reserves Committee hired Eddie Freeman to sculpt the tree trunks into masterpieces. Each of the tree trunks have a different image, seven in the likeness of the soldiers that they are in memory of, one for Gallipoli, a lone soldier leaving for war, and the Anzac tree.

The first tree completed was The Anzac Tree. The carving depicts an Anzac soldier, the Australian flags, an Anzac cross and the Battle of Lone Pine.

The memorial is in the Main Street of Legerwood, with a gently rolling parkland, picnic area and BBQs. Their is a gorgeous restored Train Carriage that is manned by friendly volunteers to buy souvenirs. A great place to remember to take time out to and remember the stories of the brave men represented in the carvings.

The War heroes of Legerwood, Dorset are now forever Immortalised, they forever stand tall.

The next time you are in the North East of Tasmania make sure you visit.
