Over the June school holidays we took the Spirit of Tasmania for a quick winter break. The ship docked at 6am and we were off soon after 6.30am, read about our experience here. We arrived on the Friday morning and we had a house booked through Stayz for two nights over the weekend in Launceston. Craig was flying in that evening as he had work commitments and could only get away for the weekend.

Over the Easter long weekend we finally visited Cape Conran in East Gippsland. I say finally because my friend has been going there for 14 years and has asked me pretty much every year to come along but for various reasons we just haven’t gotten around to going. What a mistake, big mistake!

We decided that Australia Day 2015 was a good option for us to return to Sydney as a family. It had been just over 2 years since we returned home to Melbourne from Sydney and the kids were keen to see some friends they haven’t seen in a while. Craig and I also took the opportunity to go on the hot air balloon ride with Balloon Aloft that I had won in a competition in the Australian Travellers Magazine, you can read about that here. We stayed at the Waldorf Serviced Apartments in Drummoyne and you can read…

Over the Christmas/ New Year break we went on a camping trip to the Big 4 Taggerty Holiday Park with the kids. I had researched a heap of things to keep the kids busy and entertained but in the end we did very few of them but still found plenty to do in the area and also plenty of other things that we didn’t get around to doing. Here’s my review of the Big 4 Taggerty Holiday Park. We love camping, its great for the kids and it saves us money that we can…

We dropped into the local General Store during our recent camping trip to Taggerty and were told about the 8th Annual Poohstick Race that was to be held on New Years Day on Little River. What’s a Poohstick Race you ask, so did we so we had to go and find out.
