Our S.A. coastal adventure – day 1

Many months ago, we were invited to share a journey with some photography friends to Kangaroo Island (KI), off the South Australian coast, of course, we said yes. We have had a few adventures with these photography friends and they are always so much fun. There is so much to see, do and explore in…

Summer Outings – Lal Lala Falls

The East Coast of Australia has been experiencing record rainfalls this past week, some areas more so than others, but we did not miss more than our fair share in Victoria, so on the way home from a studio shoot in Ballarat we decided on a little detour to Lal Lal Falls, about 20 mins…

Spring Outings -Donna Buang Rain Forest Gallery

We went out for the day with a friend, to enjoy some fresh air and sunshine, initially, we were going to visit Warrantina Lavender Farm as it was their open day, we arrived to complete chaos, as they were still setting up market stalls and to be honest there was very little colour. So we…

So recently the day…

Weekend Wanderings – Natural Bridge

Another wonderful spot, on The Gold Coast in Queensland, once you get away from the beaches and theme parks are the Hinterlands.

Spring Outings – Pirianda Gardens

We only just discovered these gardens in the Dandenong Ranges late Autumn/Winter this year, we have visited so many gardens up in the Dandenongs, this was not often visited as the main road in is 4WD cars only, such a pity for many tourists. On our spur of the moment visit last year we did…

Winter Weekend Wanderings – Trentham Falls

We visited the Trantham Waterfall recently with another photographer friend, who had not been before. The water was not flowing as freely as when we visited last time. But that was Spring, not Winter. Located about an hour from Melbourne, it is a lovely spot and a relatively easy walk. There were lots of people…
