The many, MANY reasons why I love my home.

Bradleys Head Rd, Mosman NSW 2088, Australia
Travelers should visit Taronga Zoo as much for its harbor views as for the 4,000 resident animals (who get to see them all day long). Ferry 15 minutes from Circular Quay and take an optional Sky Safari cable car, included in the ticket...
Save Place
Australia’s most famous beach has played many roles throughout history. In 1907, a group of local swimmers became the world’s first lifeguards; during World War II, it was fortified by barbed wire and iron stakes; and over the last few...

Fairfield Park Dr, Fairfield VIC 3078, Australia
On my first morning in Melbourne--fresh off the plane--I was dropped off at Fairfield Park Boathouse by my host. She encouraged me to grab some scones, and spend the morning writing from the deck of "The Boathouse." Always up for a good scone /...

Every year, Sydney hosts the incredibly immersive Sydney Writers' Festival. A collection of events--many which are free--are located all over the city, but the majority of the events take place at the home base: Walsh Bay. With a view of the...

563 Elizabeth St, Surry Hills NSW 2010, Australia
Abdul's falafel and pickled turnip combo is quite possibly my all-time favourite. The homey, family restaurant is a mecca for delicious Lebanese goodies. Whether you're in the mood for some hummus, kafta, or cinnamon tea, you can't go wrong....
