Hot springs in the rainforest

The Bitter Springs close to Mataranka are an absolute highlight on the way up. The water is crystal clear, warm and crocodile free. And because of a slight current, you can simply lie in the warm water and drift through beautiful rainforest. Unfortunately, you will not be alone, as it is a popular spot for […]

Crossing Australia – Our way to the warm north

Our highlight on the way up were the Devil’s Marbles. As their name indicates, they look like someone had played with giant marbles and then didn’t tidy up his playground afterwards. They are fun to stroll around but be aware of the flies, because they are terrible. But before we got there we had to […]

Great Ocean Road in a not so great storm

It is considered the most stunning coastline in Australia and absolutely deserves this verdict. It starts after Melbourne and continues until halfway to Adelaide. There is the possibility to spot Koalas in the area of Kennett River, followed by the first rock formation called the Gibson Steps before you arrive at the famous 12 Apostles. […]

Melbourne – The best city in Australia?

This city is maybe even better than Sydney. When I was there 12 years ago, I only spent two days in the city, liked it but didn’t become a fan. Besides my short stay the reason was, that I was looking for its sights, which aren’t outstanding. But what makes this city truly unique is […]

Wombats – The coolest animals ever

Kangaroo Valley is famous, as its name indicates, for Kangaroos but also for Wombats. And when spending the night on the free campsite “Bendeela Recreational area” you will for sure spot many of those beautiful creatures in the evening. We went there specifically to find Wombats but on our way we saw a dead one. […]
