Nature and Wildlife

Mungo National Park
Mungo national Park, NSW! Definitely think we found a dinosaur bone 🦖Wild emu encounters on the side of the road and some wild goats 🐐 and a bush turkey 😆 such a beautiful place to visit.
Sandhills, Wentworth with the Appletons.
Springbrook National Park, Northern NSW (close to the Gold Coast)
You can really make a day of this place!
We spent about 3 hours having a ‘quick’ explore. It’s actually where ‘I’m a Celebrity’ is filmed! A huge expanse of rainforest with plenty of walking/hiking trails, things to see and do, some amazing wildlife to be spotted, beautiful waterfalls and breathtaking views across the country to the Gold Coast.
Plus, there is an absolutely amazing Fudge shop plonked in the middle of it – yum!
Markets and Boutique Festivals
Tocumwal Easter Market
A day visit to Nimbin. Something different!
A beautiful short ferry ride over to Watsons Bay from circular key in Sydney. A wonderful little island to go and explore for the day, as a date day or even with the family. Some beautiful walks and great places to eat here. Tanya@tanya_australianadventures
Darling Harbour, Sydney
Plenty to see and do around the Harbour with lots of great places to eat. We headed to one of the selections of museums around the harbour – Maritime Museum. Great for adults and greats for kids to explore. Tanya@tanya_australianadventures
Crystal Castle & Shambhala in Montecollum – The Beddows Family
Beautiful place to visit, they have a kids play park on part of the walk with crystals built in too. Everywhere you walk there are crystals everywhere or something different to find/see & it’s such a nice vibe, really lovely people, something a bit different.
If you’re stressed out, having a bad day , need to find your feet, you will come out super chill and if you don’t, well there’s a crystal for that.. in the shop.
Nice little cafe with amazing views across the hinterland, vegan friendly. If you like meditation they have a singing bowl session at certain times of day.
A few beautiful shops with handmade jewellery, snacks, lunch, coffee because we know that’s super important.
Soak in the vibes, the sunshine, the views & bribe the four-nager with an organic chocolate ice cream during that afternoon meltdown.
Did I mention coffee??
Yes, there are backpackers all over the shop but it really is a lovely little town! And the beach is glorious. Lots of little boutique shops to browse and some really lovely cafes for a spot of lunch.
