Hiring Bikes on Rottnest Island with Kids – Family Travel Blog

We went to Perth for the weekend to visit family and while we were there we took the Rottnest Island ferry with the kids to spend the day on  Rottnest Island.

An afternoon at Cataract Gorge with the Kids, Launceston – Travelling with Kids

The kids and I arrived in the Friday morning on the Spirit of Tasmania, Craig wasn’t flying in until that night so I wanted something to do with the kids that was local and not too far to go.

Surprise Hit Around Barnbougle Dunes

For those of you following Sally on Facebook you’ll know she’s down in Tasmania with the kids for the school holidays.  Unfortunately for me (or maybe fortunately) I don’t get as much leave from work as Sal so I had to settle for just the weekend and have spent the last 3 days at home on my own.  This little blog is my payment for a little surprise Sally gave me when I caught up with them last weekend.
