My Favourite Times in Australia
I’ve been asked quite a few times about my favourite places and tours in Australia, so I figured ending my blogging about Australia should be about my fav places. To me, these places hold something special because of a triangle of personal interests: nature, history and the people.
Heading to Melbourne: Great Ocean Road
In hindsight, I believe I saw and did too much in a very short time because I couldn’t really appreciate the beauty of nature and tried to be invisible during the tour. So here is a slightly negative (and unfair?) blog post about the Great Ocean Road.
Perth to Adelaide
And so I was off, back to Adelaide, again. Loved Fitzgerald River National Park and Cape Le Grand National Park had gorgeous, paradise-like, beaches!
Oz’ Red Centre
Whoo hoo, I spent ten amazing days in the bush and desert! I had such a great time with newly made friends, learned a lot about Aboriginal culture, saw Uluru, smelled and tasted the desert and walked a fair bit. I decided to use Heading Bush for my tour and that was well chosen in hindsight.
What I loved and treasured most since were my hikes and my flirtation with helicopters.
The last few days I spent wandering through a few places: Napier, Mt. Manganui, Thames, Whitianga.
Kaikoura: whale watching and tattooing!
Christchurch is a very, very, British city. Combine this with great weather and French Akaroa in the gorgeous Banks Peninsula and you have the perfect place!
Wonderful Tekapu showcases a blue glacial lake, a lazy atmosphere and a mountainous backdrop with only one building alongside the edge, a small church.
