Margaret River

Australia

If you have ever visited my homepage, and hopefully you have, you will have seen that it has links to a selection of videos. The very  first video on it, Our First Full Year Living In Australia, went live on January 1, 2009 just after midnight and launched this website. The video contained some of [...]

Time for another Australia and New Zealand magazine reprint. You may have noticed I’ve done a few of these lately, but every now and then I realise I’m getting a little behind with them. I like to publish them on this website a month after they’ve appeared in the magazine, and as this one appeared [...]

I’ve been chatting to Alistair McGuinness recently. Me and Alastair have a fair bit in common. We were both born and bred in the UK, I grew up in a town 30 miles east of London and Alistair spent his years living 30 miles north of the English capital. Both of us lived in the [...]

I ended Wednesday’s post, called Four Days in Margaret River, Western Australia, by mentioning that some people go to Margaret River for the surfing. I included this photograph… That’s not just anybody surfing out there though, those are professional surfers, because whilst we [...]

Margaret River

There are quite a few travel websites around and some of them specialise in Australia. If you check out any of their Top 10 lists for places to visit, my bet is that Margaret River will feature in all of them. It would be absolutely nuts if it were not included. So when we decided [...]

Perth

Actually, not just 10 days in Perth, but 10 days in and around Perth including Margaret River, Fremantle and a place called Yanchep. Over the coming week I’ll be telling you all about it. And the bits I can’t fit in to this week I will come back to at some point. Let’s start with [...]
