Backpacking in Yarram Australia

Road Trip Part 5 – Yarram

I decided to stop at Yarram. There wasn’t anything special to see there, but it was a random spread out town in Gippsland, South Victoria. It was just a sunny winter morning and I only stopped to walk around and take a few photos. Here’s what I saw… Shops on the main street. They look Read more about Road Trip Part 5 – Yarram[…]

Road Trip Part 4 – Tourist Information at Foster

    There was always the option to incorporate a trip to Wilson’s Prom into my road trip.    Wilson’s Prom is Wilson’s Promontory National Park, which has a lot of animals and also the marker of the southernmost point of mainland Australia.   Hardly anything exciting for me when I’d already past Wilson’s Prom Read more about Road Trip Part 4 – Tourist Information at Foster[…]

Road Trip Part 3 – Italy v New Zealand at Leongatha

Road Trip Part 2 – Sunset in Frankston

I’d never heard of Frankston either and it’s just not touristy or anything. But I love places like that, totally out of the way, totally un-obvious and worth a look for an extra memory.

Melbourne seems to be slightly older and traditional, evident from the fact it has trams and traditional streets not dissimilar to London. There is a lot to see and do in Read more about Backpacking in Australia: Melbourne[…]

Thirsty Thursdays: Pizza, Pulp and Winning the Karaoke in Melbourne

Its almost too obvious doing all the major cities when you’re a traveller or a nomad, but somehow you end up in them anyway. In China I done Beijing, in Belarus Minsk and in Australia Melbourne. I like to get a mix of the big cities and the random smaller settlements however. But yet Melbourne Read more about Thirsty Thursdays: Pizza, Pulp and Winning the Karaoke in Melbourne[…]

Lorne, Koala Bears, Kennet River, Teddy’s Lookout

It was on the Great Ocean Road trip that we finally saw wild Koala Bears – or any type of Koala Bears at that. And it was perhaps time to thank a few things in the twist of fate that meant we saw them. First up I’d say we have to thank Darren Penfold – Read more about Lorne, Koala Bears, Kennet River, Teddy’s Lookout[…]
