    HILL HOUSE FARM STAY

    The Barn at Hill House is the result of a labour of love by the owners and an appreciation of 110 year old farming architecture and a celebration of dairy farming in the Eerwah Valley. This restored old dairy combines rustic charm with contemporary style and comfort in a rural setting. With views of the rolling hills and nearby Mount Eerwah and Mount Cooroy, it’s not hard to see why this place was rated Top 10 places to stay by..... A relaxing private getaway not far from Eumundi, The Barn is everything a farm shack should be and more. Saying it’s a unique stay is an understatement with a fire…

    Hit The Road This November

    After being cooped up in our own homes, neighbourhoods, states (and country!) for a time most of us have never experienced before, we’re more than ready to hit the road for a cheeky night or weekend away. Fortunately, us Australians are spoilt for choice with some stunning spots on our doorstep. I’ve chosen my two favourite spots in each city so you can either explore a destination close to home or jump the state border, if permitted. Beach, forest, or vineyard? Take your pick at Margaret River (WA) Sporting lush forest trails, rolling vineyard-clad hills, quaint farmers’ markets and some of the country’s best beaches – Margaret River has a…

    Van Diemen’s land, no longer the sleepy hollow

    Van Diemen’s land, no longer the sleepy hollow or the forgotten state that fell off the end of Australia, Tasmania, she may be small, but she is mighty. It’s like a slap in the face you need to wake up, and I’m not referring to the cold air, although, that’s pretty fresh, Tassie is awake with history, culture, festivals and picturesque landscape and she’s ready to let you discover, explore and immerse yourself in her richness. You’ll find yourself bunny hopping around this small island as there are an abundance of magnificent scenery everywhere you look. You’ll want to stop to see every crevice, every cove, and every corner from…

    Escape to Toms Cap

    With so much white noise as a daily intake into our minds, I needed a place to escape, somewhere quiet, tranquil, and serein.  Somewhere where all you can hear is the chirping of birds, the leaves rustling through the surrounding trees, the frogs calling from the ponds.  Somewhere where you can breathe in and exhale without a care in the world. No car horns, no hustle or bustle, no phone calls,… no service! Yes, it does exist and I found it. Last year I had the pleasure of interviewing Jarrod Woodgate, you may know him from Sophie Monks Season of The Bachelorette, he made it all the way to the…

    From Paris to Provence

    When you hear the word Paris you instantly think of love, and why wouldn’t you, it’s known as the city of love, last year, 23 million people arrived into Paris to either find love, fall in love, to receive epic proposals or to rekindle love, so what it about Paris that send us all mushy and loved up?  I had to find out, so off I went to find out what all the fuss was about. Paris in Summer is magnifique. The warm European sun and long summer nights make for a great holiday to escape the winter of Australia.  There is something about the history of France and the…
