And let’s finish with Australia. I was born and raised in wonderful Melbourne which is every bit as good as you have heard so I think I am well qualified to put together Australia travel blog posts.

Check out my insider’s guide to where to stay in Melbourne as well as my guide to the best Melbourne brunches.

Daylesford Spa region and the Mornington Peninsula are where people who live in Melbourne go to get away for the weekend.

I also lived briefly in Sydney which I didn’t enjoy that much but it is still a great place to visit. I’ve put together a Sydney itinerary that covers 3, 5 and 7 days, a guide to the best new restaurant area Barangaroo, a day trip to lovely Watsons Bay and where people who live in Sydney head for the weekend.


The Gold Coast in Queensland has come a long way and there are some fantastic Brisbane Boutique Hotels.

Finally, my oldest dearest friend lives in Perth so she and her 3 sons helped me to put together the ultimate Perth Itinerary and a guide to Australia’s favourite day trip – Rottnest Island. Don’t miss the Quokkas!
