Cape Bruny Lighthouse, Tasmania
| |

  Last year when we visited Bruny Island we made sure to visit South Bruny National Park to see the Cape Bruny Lighthouse.  When we visited it was cold and windy.  There was a lighthouse museum so I opted to stay there out of the cold while Dad braved the path for a better look. When the lighthouse was first lit in 1838 it was Australia’s fourth lighthouse.  It’s now the country’s second oldest lighthouse according to the Parks & … Read More

Point Moore Lighthouse, Geraldton
| |

Geraldton has one of those iconic lighthouses.  Those red and white stripes can’t be missed.  It’s only about 5km from the centre of Geraldton and has a busy beach across the road. The light house was built in Britain and shipped to Point Moore.  The sign gives detail of its history, when they went to erect the lighthouse they realised the foundation had been laid in the wrong place and had to start all over.  The lighthouse had 60+ keepers … Read More

Fannie Bay Gaol in Darwin
| |

I found this old post from Darwin that I guess I hadn’t finished… I can’t remember how we heard about the Fannie Bay Gaol while we were in Darwin, but we decided it would be good to go have a look.  Entry is by donation so it’s an affordable family attraction.  We thought it would be good for the kids to go inside the prison cells and learn a little about prison life.  This is probably one of those places … Read More

Bruny Island Berry Farm
| |

A flashback from Tasmania last March when we were on Bruny Island.  There’s a map in this post that shows where we were. There are a few berry picking farms in Tasmania, enough that there’s even a lovely tourist brochure highlighting them all for you. We decided to save our berry picking adventures for Bruny Island where we visited…are you ready?…the aptly named Bruny Island Berry Farm.  This could possibly be the best berry farm location ever.  Right across from … Read More

A Surprise Didgeridoo Performance
| |

A bit of a flashback, just back to Alice Springs… When looking at things to do in Alice Springs I came across the Sounds of Starlight Theatre.  We would have loved to attend the Didgeridoo Show Outback, but it was a bit over our budget so I crossed it off our list.  The caravan park we stayed at in Alice had a didgeridoo presentation on the weekend so we thought we’d go see what that was like.  I was so … Read More

Junee Licorice & Chocolate Factory
| |

A flashback from April!  We spent a couple of nights in Junee to visit the Junee Licorice & Chocolate Factory and the Junee Roundhouse Museum.  It seemed like all the other travellers only spent one night.  They’d arrive midday and visit both of these places that afternoon, then they were off in the morning.  The ease of travelling without kids!  Visiting both attractions the same day would have been too much for us, especially with a toddler.  We chose to … Read More
