Raby Bay

Often on a Monday I like to reflect back on what I did over the weekend, especially if it's something new and different. This weekend I did a few things that are new and different to me, which is quite an achievement considering I've lived here in Brisbane for nearly 9 years now. Let's start [...]

Mackay

Mackay week is drawing to a close. We started with Mackay: The Town, the Shops, the River and the Lagoon and followed that on Wednesday with The Beaches and the Country Roads Around Mackay, Queensland. Here's Mackay, all of it, all at once, but without too much of the fine detail... The '...without too much [...]

In Mondays post we looked at Mackay: The Town, the Shops, the River and the Lagoon. I wanted to check out the beaches though, so I jumped into my car to make the short journey east to the coast. Within 10 minutes I'd made my way to the end of East Gordon Street, arriving at [...]

Mackay

Time to return to my road trip. Having left Rockhampton and taken the scenic route around the Capricorn Coast, I drove straight past Eungella National Park, arriving in Mackay at around 6 o'clock in the evening. My accommodation was a little bit out of the way, being a fair walk from the centre of town. [...]

Before that, I'd written about it four times, you can access all of those posts from this one called Worlds Most Liveable City is NOT Brisbane? The first time I reported on this survey Melbourne were [...]

As I mentioned in Mondays post about City2Surf, I had a quiet weekend home alone and spent some of it watching the opening games of the English Premier League on TV. This year though, for the first time since moving to Australia back in 2007, I wasn't watching it on Foxtel. In Australia, Foxtel no [...]

A year ago I did a post about City2Surf, The World’s Biggest Fun Run, Probably. This event has been held in Sydney every year since 1971, so yesterday was the 45th run. What's it like to actually take part in this event though? I don't know, I've never done it, but I know five girls [...]

Yeppoon

As you will already know if you read Mondays posts, I didn't drive directly to Mackay from Rockhampton, I took the scenic route, The Capricorn Coast Tourist Drive. I thoroughly enjoyed the drive, and the whole area along the coastline from Emu Park to Yeppoon. I have no regrets in taking that detour, but had [...]
