Coal Cellar + Grill Restaurant in Hilton Adelaide
Coal Cellar + Grill is a new restaurant opened in Hilton Adelaide recently. As the name suggested, Coal Cellar + Grill serves a lot of grill meat and uses many traditional Australia native ingredients. However We decided that the mains they serve looked more quite unique and we thought we might give the Grill a miss this time. We ordered four different entrées and three different types of mains.
Melbourne- Brighton Bathing Boxes
Melbourne is the “Cultural Hub”of Australia. Every street and avenues are full of little surprises. The most famous beach in the suburbs of Melbourne would be Brighton beach due to the Brighton Bathing Boxes. They are extremely colourful huts built in a row on the beach. It’s a must go place for tourists in Melbourne!
Pink Lake in Australia
I always believed that Pink Lake in Australia is very dreamy. I never though we would bump into one of the pink lakes during our travels. On our way back from Melbourne at a location just past a town, Dimboola, which is close to the The Grampians, we saw this pink lake! We were on the High way and we spotted this pink lake which appeared to be red from afar. Although we quickly whizzed past the lake we decided to quickly U-Turn and head back to check out this crazily beautiful nature’s creation.
Day Trip to Grampians National Park
I have always wanted to go to the Grampians National park since I have been in Australia to see the beautiful scenaries, crazy rocks, amazing wildlife and famous aboriginal paintings. After four years in Australia, I finally have a chance to take my young cousin to visit this place during our travels from Adelaide to Melbourne. Grampians is roughly 500kms from Adelaide (5.5hours of driving) we woke up very early that day and made Grampians our first destination!
The Guide: What to see on Great Ocean Road?
This time, we travelled from Adelaide To Melbourne via Great Ocean Road. The Great Ocean Road is a 276 km stretch of road built mostly on top of coastal cliffs.

It is a road that is well visited by locals and many travel across the world to see. But what to see on Great Ocean Road exactly? We have made a list of can’t missed attractions!
Granite Island & Victor Harbor to see Penguins & Whales
This was my first time visiting Victor Harbor, a coastal town about 80 km south of Adelaide. It is a highly touristy town where many people in South Australians come to in the summer months. One of the attractions includes whale spotting and the best time to do this is around June to September as it is their mating season and they return to the more secure shoreline.
To climb Uluru or not? The Reasons
When the British settlers arrived in Australia, they took over and forced the Aboriginals out of the area and renamed Uluru into Ayer’s Rock. Many people attempted to climb the Ayer’s Rock and will accidentally fall and die. The rope on Uluru was placed around 1960s to make rescue missions easier for the locals. Not too long after, many people from all over the world starts to come to Uluru and climb the rock. The actual climb is only 2 hours; physically there is nothing to brag about (only 348m high), unlike climbing Mt Everest (8848m) where it is actually physically demanding.
