5 Reasons why Timber Creek is a TOP Aussie Town!

Victoria River Sunset, via Timber Creek, Northern Territory

Timber Creek sure didn’t look like the home of Australia’s wildest river OR the crocodile capital of OZ as we pulled in after a punishing hour – and about 90 kilometres – on the road. I hadn’t yet discovered the killer Scenic Loo but even if I had, Timber Creek wouldn’t have looked like dunny heaven either. I checked my

How to Spend 7 Days in Paradise – Lord Howe Island, New South Wales

Lord Howe Island

I don’t know if anyone ever struck it rich in the old days – or even the new days – by hitting a seam of opal while sinking a dugout dunny shaft. But if it’s going to happen anywhere, the chances of it happening in Andamooka are better than average. As long as the hole is at least 3 metres

Boulders on Bald Rock climb, via Tenterfield NSW

There’s no shame in taking the easy option. Is there? That’s what I kept telling myself on the Bald Rock climb, anyway. It’d been too long since I clocked up an Australian exclusive, so climbing Bald Rock, largest exposed granite rock in the Southern Hemisphere and centrepiece of the boulder-studded Granite Country around Tenterfield, was a no-brainer.
