Activities For Kids In The Margaret River Region

Stunning beaches, tonnes of activities for the kids, world-class wines.  How could you not love Australia’s Margaret River region.  After a fun few days in Perth/Fremantle and an overnight on the Ferguson Farmstay, we headed 90 minutes south to this …

Margaret River Roadtrip: Dolphins & A Farmstay

Following a wonderful three nights in Fremantle, we set South for the Margaret River region.  Instead of racing through the three hour drive, I decided to book a night at the Ferguson Farmstay, which is just under two hours from Fremantle. …

Family Travel Guide To Perth & Fremantle

The first port of call for our Western Australia roadtrip was its capital Perth.  Having read reports that the Perth CBD was a bit boring, I chose to base ourselves in Fremantle, its livelier neighbour, about 25 minutes drive southwest. …

Auckland is one of those cities you walk around thinking ‘I could live here’.  I’ve had similar moments in Vancouver, San Francisco and Austin.  The place is surrounded by water giving it a relaxed vibe and the place is filled …

New Zealand Road Trip Part 4: Rotorua

About an hour’s drive from Taupo is the stinky town of Rotorua.  The smell is courtesy of its geothermal activity hence why Rotorua is also known as ‘sulphur city’.  Although there’s lots to do in Rotorua, as a town it’s …
