Tasmania is an island state located south of the Australian mainland. It is promoted as a natural state, as 42% of Tasmania is covered with protected areas such as national parks and World Heritage Sites. It is like the New Zealand of Australia! A great place for nature lovers. Hence self drive in Tasmania is a great way to explore the island.
Finding the Best Oysters in Tasmania
Tasmania is an island state of Australia, located 240km south to Australia’s mainland. The climate here is a lot cooler compared to the rest of Australia. It reminds me more of New Zealand’s weather more than mainland Australia! People in Tasmania are big foodies! It is no wonder people base their Tasmanian adventure around food! During this trip, we hope to find the best oysters in Tasmania!
Tesalate SAND-FREE Beach Towel Review with 15% DISCOUNT CODE
Recently I was lucky enough to be asked by Tesalate to do a review for their beach towels. I actually saw these towels on Instagram and instantly fell in love with the patterns! However, I was a bit sceptical about their “sand-free” claim, so when their press asked me to do a review, I was thrilled.

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!

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.
