Grandparents Skywalk Adventure – Mt Tamborine

The end of School Holidays are near, so off we go to Par and Pecore’s home for a few days and what did they have in store for us, but a trip up to the Skywalk on Mt Tamborine.

The brochure my Mum showed me of the Skywalk had alluring words like natural wonderland, beautiful rainforest canapy walk, different, thrilling, magnificent and while doing the walk, I totally agreed.

The Raft Builders of Tallebudgera Creek, Gold Coast

The Raft Builders of Tallebudgera Creek, our latest Gold Coast adventure blog post came about from one of Tagore’s mates asking about the photo at the top of our blog.

Ok, so you wouldn’t want to take this one to New Zealand, but for fun transport up...

Noosa National Park – Rocks!!!!

I spent a lot of  time in Noosa as a child in the mid-seventies and then again through my late teens, and the Noosa National Park always called me back time after time and here is why I wanted my family to experience its beauty….. We had a blast, with a full morning of walking, climbing, snorkelling, swimming and rock pool exploring. With the ever changing landscape of the sea, rocky headlands and lush beaches that Queensland do so well our senses were being invaded. The scenery was vibrant with a variety of blues and greens, things to touch and feel like paper bark trees, rocks and sea shells alive with little beings.  Our ears were alert with the new  sounds of our environment. So as we stepped onto the very friendly stroller or wheelchair path we...
