Australia is a vast and beautiful country. For many people it’s a once in a lifetime experience; so you better know the best places to visit!
I feel like the older I get the faster time flies. Maybe I just do more or I learned to really appreciate the time I have on this beautiful planet – and man this planet is beautiful!
Three years ago I drove on the world-famous Australian Great Ocean Road in an old yellow van. I had started my year travel around the world just a few months earlier. Little did I know it would turn out to be much longer.
I love Melbourne. For me this city has pretty much everything. It is big enough to feel like a city, but is cosy and accessible at the same time. I’ve visited Melbourne a few times, but now was the first time that I explored outside of the city.
Let me tell you one thing: I was surprised. I left New Zealand without many expectations, only with a plan to explore the coast (south-east side) around Melbourne and see what it has in store. There are multiple spots that will take your breath away. Let me list a few must do trips from Melbourne!
Ready for a secret? I’m about to reveal the most beautiful bay in Australia. There are plenty of bays with nice beaches and clear water, but this one leaves all the others behind.
Have you ever been to Australia? If so, you know how huge it is. There is just so much to see and do. And it’s even worse. It’s not only the mainland you have to keep in mind. Don’t forget the cool islands around Australia, they’re definitely worth a visit.
It’s no secret that travelling isn’t cheap. You will spend money when you’re abroad. But travelling in Australia definitely isn’t cheap. When I first put foot on Ozzie soil I got into a little state of shock. 9 dollar beers, expensive accommodation and I even found a capsicum that was 4,36 dollar, a capsicum! I quickly realised my wallet would go on a diet.
Did you finally make the decision to go on a solo-travel? Your suitcases are packed with courage? Awesome! The difficult part is over.
So I am back in Sydney. I think it is the third time I’m in this city. I don’t know what it is, but I quite like it here. The nice bars, the weather, the people I met. Probably a mix of that. But now it’s for real. Thursday I fly out of Australia, back to Belgium. Aaaah, weird!
Shame on me, I’ve only been four days in Melbourne. But in those days the city got to me. Melbourne is vibrant, lovely, cultural and has heaps – but really – heaps of bars. In those couple of days I tried to do as much bars as I could. Thanks to my great couch surfing host Phill, I discovered some really cool hidden bars. I feel obligated to share this precious information, so below you’ll find a list of to do-bars in Melbourne!
