Australia, Oz, the land down under, our home country is one of beauty and with a lifestyle that just can’t be matched. To many travelers, it’s on the bucket list but also at the top of the too hard list. Come on people, don’t you know what you’re missing out on? From America, the flight is a little long, clocking in at up to 22 hours from the eastern-most point, but more commonly you can be there in 18 hours (or what’s also known as about nine movies and three meals). It’s basically having a snooze in an undersized armchair, so honestly, get over it because the reward outweighs the pain of travel.

As a country, Australia is a land of extremes. Extremely fresh, tasty food, extremely chill, yet welcoming people and extremely dangerous wildlife – almost everything can bite, sting, poison or maim you. It is also extremely large. Somewhere along the line, the cartographers got things very, very wrong. Most visitors assume that it’s a smallish island. That’s what they were taught in middle school geography. It is in fact almost as large as the United States. In the same state you can experience jungles, alps and deserts. Distances are massive between capital cities, usually taking up to 15 hours to drive. Whatever the experience and no matter where they come from, no one who visits Australia leaves disappointed. Below you will find some of our favorite experiences with a little local “know-how”.

Gorgeous Bribie Island – Not quite an island getaway

Bribie Island is a 40-minute drive from Brisbane (on a good day). With a calm and a surf side of the island, it makes it the perfect holiday destination, with something for everyone. Bribie Island has played a big part in both of our youth. It was the closest beach with waves you could body board on. It was only an hour (back then) to get to from the big smoke and it...
