Surfers Paradise

Beaches

Last week in my post Heading North of Perth into Midwest Australia I put up a stunning time-lapse video, it may even be the best video on this website. As at the time of writing, not a single comment on it. Undeterred, I have another timelapse video coming up today. Before that though, let's talk [...]

snake

Snake season is upon us again, if you were to Google 'snake season' and select the results for the past month, you'll find there's lots of talk about snakes in Australia at the moment. As you can probably see from the snapshot above, there is talk about Surfers Paradise, that's the famous beach on the [...]

I think it's an absolute miracle that I've lived here over four years and I still haven't done a post on the TV program "I'm a Celebrity, Get Me Out of Here!" hosted by Ant and Dec. Today, I'm going to change that. What spurred me into this action now? Well, two performances that are [...]

Last time I went whale watching, it was from North Stradbroke Island's Point Lookout just over a year ago. It wasn't the most successful whale watching trip in history, we didn't spot a single whale. If you recall, I took hours of video footage but ended up showing you just one picture, because in that [...]

jet ski

I can't remember the last time we went to the beach. Oh yes I can, yesterday! Of course, I meant before that. We came close to being on the beach when we went to Lota to celebrate three years living in Australia. Before that, who knows? But we went yesterday. You see, with all the [...]
