Visiting the Rainforest Gallery, Warburton

The beautiful Rainforest Gallery can be found not far from Warburton, it’s one of the Yarra Valley’s hidden gems; The Warburton Rainforest Gallery. There are two activities here to enjoy. The first is a 40 metre long observation platform (apparently one of only three of its type in Australia) which takes you into the rainforest canopy [...]

Exploring the Redwood Forest, Warburton

The Redwood Forest, Warburton is located just 15 minutes’ drive through the township of Warburton. It is home to the magical Californian Redwood tree plantation. This has been popping up on social media a bit over the past few months and I can’t believe the number of times we have been to and through Warburton and [...]

Doon Reserve Caravan Park Review

We had a great March long weekend camping at the Doon Reserve Caravan Park. This was our second visit to this park and here is our review. To be honest, this is not our normal style of camping. Back before the kids we used to go camping in the bush and gave dirty looks [...]

Serendip Sanctuary

On our way back from a weekend trip to the Bellarine Peninsula we made a stop in to a free animal sanctuary. Yes! You read that correctly, free! Serendip Sanctuary is under an hour from home and makes a great little stop off. Visiting Serendip Sanctuary I wouldn’t necessarily say you will need a full day [...]

Family friendly Rutherglen Wineries

Rutherglen is a fantastic wine region to visit with kids. I think most (well, a lot) wineries are getting on board these days and making themselves family friendly. They really have no choice! Some families might think that kids won't enjoy visiting wineries or that wineries are not set up for families. But, this is just [...]

Camping sites around Victoria

I totally get it, camping divides people! You either love it or hate it. We love it, as do the kids. But I won't lie, it can be hard work. The packing beforehand, set up, pack down, the unpacking and the cleaning once home. For us, it's well worth the effort. Perfect camping area [...]

Review – Glen Cromie Holiday Park

Over the March long weekend we enjoyed our third visit to Glen Cromie. Being only an hour from Melbourne along the Monash Freeway it is a very easy long weekend or weekend getaway. The park itself is only 10 minutes from both Warragul and Drouin. The park is set on 35 acres in a [...]
