When I think about spring as a child it brings back memories of picnics in the bush, cooking on an open fire and searching for native orchids and other wildflowers. I grew up in a small wheatbelt town which is know as wildflower country.Read More »
Welcome to ten on ten! On the 10th of each month I share 10 photos taken in a day.
As soon as we opened the gate we entered into a new world. Boshack Outback is more than just a farm stay. They are eco-friendly and have as little impact on the environment as possible. They are off the grid, all solar powered and drinking water comes from a fresh water spring.Read More »
To tell you the truth I was a little nervous about doing the Holland Track. I didn’t really know what to expect. I just knew we would be in a remote part of Western Australia 4wding for 3 days. Thoughts were running through my head like what if the kids get hurt or sick? What if we breakdown and can’t get help? I mean the thought of spending days on end in a car with small children is enough to send anyone into a panic attack. What I didn’t expect was to be intrigued by the pioneer John Holland and his life.
I am a Sandgroper, so who better to give you a local guide to Perth. Not sure what a Sandgroper is? It is the affectionate name given to Western Australians as our state is full of sand!

I stumbled across Lake Navarino on Instagram some time ago. I love finding new places to explore and that is why I have an Instagram obsession. So when some friends asked me if I wanted to spend a weekend at Lake Navarino Holiday Park I didn’t hesitate to say yes. That and the fact it has been almost 3 months since we have been camping. Hard to believe I know!Read More »
Mount Barker is a place I have been visiting for 40 years. A place where my Grandfather farmed and generations before and after him still farm the land. It feels like home.
When you mention Mt Barker to Perth folk they usually say that is where the chickens live! Sorry to disappoint but you will not find free range chickens roaming the street or popping into the pub like the TV ad.
However if you are looking for an authentic country stay with spectacular scenery and delicious wine, then this is the place for you.Read More »
