After my just incredible scenic drive yesterday, I went to the last two great spots at the great ocean road: London Bridge and The Grotto. Afterwards I headed north to the Grampians… It took me a bit longer than expected 😁 but I arrived save and went finally to some great lookouts (). Even though we hit today 37* I walked down the McKenzie Falls 😁 Was beautiful! Unfortunately I can not… Read More

Well, there is actually not much to say… I just drove along the great ocean road 😁 Well to drive on the left side is a bit special, but it did work out after a couple of hours πŸ™ˆ just keep relaxed 😎 but with those views the easiest task! And well, the scenery is so welcoming, so I watched the sunrise at the 12 Apostels … > no words – just… Read More

After a great night in a super comfi bed, I went for a stroll around Melbourne. I ended up walking around 8h … And just saw CBD and part of South Bank 😁 Ok, to be fair, I also planned a bit my next days > Grat Ocean Road, Grampians, Kangaroo Island, Barossa Valley … quite some activities planned before leaving Australia in 2 Weeks 😁 so I am very excited 😁

So, today I headed off to Melbourne… well, so I decided to hopp off the bus in Canberra. If I am passing the city anyway… why not have a look at the capital 😁 I have to say, there is not too much to see … anyway, I had a nice day walking to the parliament house … and visiting the National Museum of Australia where they just had the special exhibition… Read More

Unfortunately I can not visit a show at the Opera House while staying in Sydney (nothing good going on for me). So I took the chance and made the official tour… An amazing construction – great looking and functional on top. And as a treat we could listen to the Sydney Opera Orchester while having the rehearsal for their La La Land performance in the main concert hall πŸ˜€ Afterwards I enjoyed… Read More

Welcome to Sydney! I just arrived yesterday evening by train from the Blue Mountains. My Hostel here is fantastic (YHA @ the harbour). The view from the roof top is just unbeatable – opera house and Sydney bridge 😁 Anyway, to get as much as possible from my Sydney stay (even though it was a cloudy and rainy day again), I joined today a free city tour. I did not know what… Read More

The sun is back! So, I packed my daypack and headed to see some Koalas and other native animals in Australia… A good place to do so (a bit cheating though) is the Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary a bit outside of Brisbane. Beside the famous Koalas they also have Dingos, Birds, Sheeps, Kangaroos, Wombats, Tasmanian Devil, Snakes, etc. … Afterwards I just did a little detour to Mt Cootha to catch an… Read More

Even though it was not raining the last night – the night was short! We were ready to head off to Kings Canyon at 6am – this means, having finished breakfast and dishes, cleaning teethes, have all wrapped up and back in the bus such as swags, sleeping bags, backpacks etc Even though those wake up times are far away from what I like, it’s prevents you from walking during midday –… Read More

After a short and wet night, we first headed off to watch the sunrise at Urulu and getting a open air breakfast in front of the majestic rock. While getting our breakfast ready it did start to rain again slightly… at this point the mood was not at the highest point … but what followed afterwards was just amazing! … Rain stopped and we had a incredible moment watching the sunrise! Our… Read More

Yes, It’s quite a way to go – but absolutely worth it! And in fact it is only a couple of 100km drive – distances get relative in Australia 😁 Anyway, as we arrived at the rock, we started our walk around it – so called base walk. Takes around 2h roughly. While walking, it started raining … supposed to rain here around 300ml per year. So it is not that rarely… Read More
