On to the Coffs

So, after spending a couple of days in Newcastle (that is Newcastle Australia) it was time to continue my trek north. By this time I had pretty much reached to edge of the Sydney Rail network – to an extent, so it was now time to jump onto the Countrylink to continue my journey. The problem with the Countrylink is that there are only two that pass through here on a daily basis, which means that I had to make sure I was at the station otherwise I would be waiting around for quite a while with absolutely nothing to do, and nowhere to stay. … More On to the Coffs

Victor Harbor – The Seaside Playground

Honestly, I’m not really all that sure what he appeal with Victor Harbor actually is. Okay, I have probably been down here more times than I can count, and the place gets pretty packed during the summer. Okay, driving through the town isn’t as bad as it could be, and certainly isn’t like driving through a European City (I hate driving through European cities, but that has more to do with not knowing where I am going and not being able to refer to Google Maps while I am driv … More Victor Harbor – The Seaside Playground

Warrnambool – The Whaling City

It certainly took me a decent amount of time to get around to writing (and even posting) this piece, especially since it was Easter 2015 when I was last in Warrrnambool (at least at the time of writing, which is actually May 2016, over a year after I was there). Mind you, it isn’t that I hadn’t written anything of Warrnambool since that time, since I did write about the Maritime Village, the Cheese Factory , the volcano, the church, and of course the Great Ocean Road. … More Warrnambool – The Whaling City

Adelaide’s Brighton Beach

It seems as if Brighton is actually a pretty popular name for a suburb. In fact I reckon a majority of states in Australia have a Brighton. For instance there is one in Tasmania, one one Victoria (which happens to be a really, really swanky suburb), one on Queensland, and of course one in South Australia. In fact, with the exception of Brighton Tasmania, all of them happen to be a seaside suburb (though they don’t strictly border the sea as Brisbane and Melbourne are both on bays, while Adelaide in on a gulf). … More Adelaide’s Brighton Beach

Back to the Beach – Henley and Grange

Okay, I have already partly written a post of a couple of Adelaide’s beaches (Glenelg, though that had more to do with my New Year’s Eve adventure, and Semaphore), so I guess I probably should write one about another beach that I seem to have regularly visited. Actually, this is a regular beach in that this would be the place that my friend’s would meet on those hot days that they would suddenly notify us about. … More Back to the Beach – Henley and Grange

Bonding at Bondi

“Have you ever been there on a hot day?” was the answer I received from a Sydneysider when I asked him what the big deal about Bondi Beach was. Well, as you can see from the photo above that is what Bondi Beach is like when the weather is quite nice (though it wasn’t stinking hot) and while the multitude of kites were pretty cool, there was one thing that put me off this place – people. … More Bonding at Bondi
