Maroochydore QLD 4558, Australia
A true gem on the Sunshine Coast, and a local favorite, Glass Coffee House is a perfect place to start your day. Enjoy classic dishes like a delicious smashed Avo, or a smoothie bowl with muesli. Or, if you’re feeling adventurous, try a beautiful...
Whitsunday Island QLD 4802, Australia
Although a bit crowded, the beauty of Whitehaven Beach is well worth the trek. Hike to the top of the hill to see the incredible white sand from above, but don’t stop there – definitely hike to the beach and enjoy the incredible white sand, warm...
Sydney NSW, Australia
I love visiting big iconic bridges during the sunset. Trips at dusk to the Golden Gate Bridge and the Brooklyn Bridge have resulted in spectacular photographs of the urban landscape. The Sydney Harbour Bridge was another great experience! The...

Take drinking on a rooftop to the next level, at Lido – a movie theatre with a rooftop screen! Lido on the Roof offers one movie per night (After dark) on the outdoors. The theatre provides headphone for all members of the audience to tune-in –...
Brighton beach, Victoria, Australia
A quick train ride out of Melbourne CBD brings you to Brighton Beach, a cute town on the bay a little south of the city. The water is calm here, as there is no surf in the bay, but it offers a great way to cool off on a hot summer day, and a...
8 Rankins Ln, Melbourne VIC 3000, Australia
With plenty of breakfast options in Melbourne I had a hard time choosing where to eat – but came across Manchester Press and was sold! It’s located in a cute alley (very typical of Melbourne) and serves delicious food and coffees. I tried the...
