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! (more…)
Last weekend Craig and I joined 70,000 others at Etihad Stadium for the Foo Fighters concert here in Melbourne. We’d palmed the kids off for the night so we thought we’d make a night of it and book a hotel in town. The Holiday Inn Hotel Melbourne is in a great location on Spencer St and a short walk to the stadium for the concert. (more…)
Melbourne is a great city to visit whether it be for a weekend or for a week, there’s plenty to keep you busy. I recently had friends come and stay who have never been to Melbourne before. This of course, put me in my element, tour guide for the day in my home town. Melbourne is an awesome city but unfortunately I only had one day to sell it to them!

Last month Craig and I and a few friends, went to one of the twilight concerts that are held at the Melbourne Zoo, lovingly known as Zoo twilights! They are held on the lawns near the rotunda closer to the rear entrance. On this occasion we saw Bernard Fanning, there are various others playing over the summer season on selected dates including James Reyne, Sarah Blasko, Paul Kelly, Spiderbait, Village People & The Cat Empire.

Last year I decided I needed a new tennis buddy, Craig isn’t really interested unless they’re corporate tickets and most of my friends aren’t that into tennis to spend their money on going. So I made the decision last year to take Alannah for the first time when she was only 9 years old. She loved it and wanted to return this year. Awesome, new tennis buddy for mum! Australian Open Melbourne is one of the worlds best run world sporting events and you can really see why. (more…)
When I researched Marysville and some of the activities I was hoping to do while we were in town, I ended up with a bit of a list. Well we have just returned from our trip and I will fill you in on a secret, we only managed to tick off one of those activities and that was to visit the Cathedral Ranges for a walk.
