In this post you will find all about our experience, the handling, what you have to consider, what documents you need and what it costs. Continue reading

Why we prefer to sail with the ferry from Melbourne to Tasmania

Ferry from Melbourne to Tasmania

When planning our trip to Tasmania we knew one thing for sure: we take the ferry from Melbourne to Tasmania. We love to sail because it means slow travel and it’s also the best option for us as we travel with our camper. But even travelers without a vehicle should think about sailing instead of flying. Why? It’s more fun, it’s adventurous and it’s such a great feeling when the ship is leaving port and you see the skyline of Melbourne slowly disappear at the horizon. Continue reading

The road trip from Brisbane to Sydney along the east coast stretches over approximately 1000 kilometers. The direct route follows the coast on the Highway Nr. 1. Even if the highway is following the coastline, it is still too far away from the coast to enjoy sea view during the drive. But there are several sidetracks to beautiful beaches and nice towns along the coast. Continue reading

Castle Rock Skywalk – Highlight at Porongurup National Park

Castle Rock Skywalk Porongurup National Park

We love hiking and exploring as many national parks as possible here in Australia. This morning, when waking up at the camp, we look outside to check the weather. It doesn’t look promising to go hiking. Strong wind and dense fog are greeting us today. We pull the blanket over our heads again and stay in bed a bit longer. At the end our desire for coffee is stronger and we finally get up. After breakfast the fog slowly disappears and then it starts to rain. Definitely not the weather we wished for today. Well, bad weather cannot stop us to go hiking and doing the Castle Rock Skywalk in the Porongurup National Park. Continue reading
