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!

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 [...]

Mt Buller with kids, our first family ski trip

My Review of The Family Friendly Peninsula Picnic – A Family Travel Blog

The Peninsula Picnic is one of the Mornington Peninsula’s premier family friendly food, wine and music festivals and we were excited to attend both the 2017 and 2018 events.
