Potters Gorge has had a bit of a bush makeover (if there is such a thing) since the last time we were there. It has been upgraded to have nice large campsites, paths, shelters, BBQs and a mountain bike pump track.
The name Potters Gorge is a little misleading as there is no gorge in the area. The campground is actually situated along the banks of Wellington Dam. Read More »
Dixie and I had a child-free afternoon, instead of going for a romantic picnic or to the movies we fed our adrenaline addiction! We hit Aloha Surfhouse in Joondalup for an afternoon of rock climbing and surfing.
Aloha Surfhouse is an awesome venue where you can chill out with a coffee, watch your friends or family climb and surf. Browse the boutique, eat in the cafe as you will probably work up a hunger after all that physical activity! If you like something a bit more low key then you can take a yoga class. Read More »
I have never used Airbnb. I often find myself on their website looking at all the different accommodation options but I have never made a booking. Well that was until this weekend.

For the longest time I have been wanting to camp at RAC Margaret River Nature Park (formerly Wharncliffe Mill Bush Retreat). I had heard nothing but rave reviews on the property so I decided to check it out for myself. Would it live up to my expectations?Read More »

Whether your kids are adventurers, thrill-seekers, or beach babies there’s something for everyone!Read More »

It is becoming a bit of a tradition that I injure myself a week before I compete in an event. Last weekend I was kayaking in the ocean and the swell was huge, well it looked enormous to a girl from the bush! I thought I had my timing perfect, there was a break in the waves and I took the opportunity to paddle into the shore as fast as I could. I had made it, my kayak was on the sand! Then before I knew it a wave smashed me, I hit the sand with a thud and the kayak was floating over the top of me.Read More »
