Yellow Water Billabong

Yellow Water Billabong is a small body of water off of the South Alligator River in Kakadu National Park. Kakadu is a UNESCO World Heritage site just outside of Darwin, in the North of Australia. If you are into birdwatching or crocodiles or both, Yellow Water Billabong should be high on your list of places to visit. The best and easiest way to accomplish this is booking a tour with Yellow Water Cruises. We choose the sunrise tour and it was loaded with wildlife.

Road Tripping Australia - Bondi Beach

Road Tripping: Australia Part 1 – Sydney to The Great Ocean Road

By: Matthew

A road trip across Australia can only be described as epic. It is also the only way you can get a sense of the scale of this country. We had seventeen days and a grand plan that had us traversing some 5,630 km’s (3,498 miles) and past as many landmarks as we thought we could manage.

Eureka Skydeck Melbourne

Our Visit to Eureka Skydeck and The Edge

By: Heather

The Skydeck is the Southern Hemisphere’s Highest Viewing Point Platform. Once in Melbourne, it’s hard to miss the building towering over the city at 297.3m/975ft high. The building design was influenced by the Eureka Stockade rebellion during the Victorian Gold Rush era. The windows on the top 10 floors are coated in 24 karat gold, a red line symbolizes blood shed, and the blue and white lines define the Stockade flag. Take a good look at the white horizontal lines across the building. What do they remind you of? If you guessed a ruler, you are correct.
