Agnes Water: 5 Reasons why you shouldn’t skip it

Agnes Water: 5 Reasons why you shouldn’t skip it

Agnes Water and 1770 are small, sleepy towns that are so often overlooked as somewhere to explore. I met many a traveller that was just staying one or maybe two nights here. Using it mainly as a rest spot before catching the overnight bus up to Airlie Beach. While I spent nearly a week in the area most of that was spent on my Castaway adventure (find out more about that in my next post) I definitely fell into the…

Fraser Island: the Ultimate Driving Adventure

Fraser Island: the Ultimate Driving Adventure

Fraser Island, the largest sand island in the world, is one of the must-see things on any east coast Australia trip. It was originally named K’Gari island by its traditional Aboriginal owners and more recently, the island, like Uluru, it has recently been handed back to the traditional owners (albeit with much less fanfare). The word K’Gari roughly translates to paradise which is a pretty good description of this awe-inspiring place. Fraser Island is world-heritage listed and stretches over 123…

The Commonwealth Games – not just about the sport

As I walk along the beach, the cool sand softly cushioning my feet there is suddenly an eruption of noise. Just off the shoreline are 2 boats releasing an abundance of fireworks into the night sky.

How to Survive your Layover in Singapore Airport

How to Survive your Layover in Singapore Airport

So you’re about to fly off on your next adventure but you’re dreading that long layover in Singapore airport. Fear not! For Singapore is the best (in my humble opinion) airport to transit in ever. I recently spent a whole 14 hours pent up in this place on my way over to Australia from the UK. Not only did I not get bored but it also significantly reduced the overall effects of jetlag once I did land in Oz. So…
