    St Kilda Beach

    We took a lovely bike ride along the coast from here to Half Moon Bay, stopping for a swim on the beach. Later that night we came back to sample the nightlife we'd heard so much about, and wasn't disappointed. Metropol Bar and Cushion Lounge were the two we visited and had a good boogie. Wednesday in Cushion Lounge is $5 pizza night!

    The Australian Open

    We were lucky to be part of the 100th anniversary and witness Novak Djokovic defend Rafael Nadal after 5 hours and 53 minutes - whew! Even if you aren't a tennis fan, go for the atmosphere and try spot some famous faces in the crowd.

    Our family really enjoyed visiting this zoo. Particularly the great window where you can watch the seals swim past. They have a lot of great animals who all seem pretty content. The day we went the elephant and zoo keeper came onto the lawn while we were eating our picnic lunch! They have good facilities available so you can spend a whole day there if you want. Take insect repellent. We got ravaged by mosquitoes as we sat by a very lovely Japanese pond.

    A surprisingly lovely little botanical gardens/nature reserve just a short walk from town. It is largely Acacia trees and desert shrubs, but these are gorgeous when in bloom. And the Bean Tree Cafe located in the gardens has some of the best coffee in NT!

    When driving west out of Waihi along SH2 you quickly encounter the Karangahake Gorge, which is a very nice area to spend a bit of time in this area of Coromandel. Some amazing walks but with steep steps and also dark tunnels so good walking shoes and a torch essential. Turn your flashlight off when you are in the pump room, and when your eyes are accustomed to the dark you should see glowworms.


    Places To Eat

    The Goat in the Boat Restaurant


    An interesting name for a wonderful, welcoming place. Maria greeted us warmly as soon as we arrived and made us feel right at home. We both chose the souvlaki and could tell it was made with love. Want to know how it got its name? You'll have to ask Maria yourself!

    Il Dolce Freddo

    Heaven for those with a sweet tooth. This was the best ice cream we found in Melbourne, I must admit we stopped there a number of times! There are so many different flavours - from the traditional to Baileys, salted caramel, Nutella, walnut and pear cheesecake... I could go on!

    Tucked in the back of an Irish shop in a the gorgeous heritage area of the Rocks, The Tea Cozy serve a good old-fashioned Devonshire tea, with loose leaf tea in vintage teapots (including cosy of course!), and fresh homemade scones with regional gourmet jam.

    These burgers are delicious! And not badly priced. Yummy fresh ingredients and great flavour combos. The chips are chunky and come with home made tomato sauce. It's a great spot they've got on the corner of busy Cuba St, and I love the repurposed caravans.

    A completely vegetarian cafe with a wide variety of teas. There is a good courtyard area and you can buy teapots and other tea making paraphernalia.

    Explore North Head

    Walk from Shelly Bay via the boardwalk. Beautiful views from the top. Take your own food and drinks to save money.


    Check out Sealy Lookout

    Sealy Lookout is about 15 minutes out of town. Amazing views and well worth the trip. Just be aware that the road up is quite narrow.

    Culture and food capital of New Zealand

    Wellington has been named the culture and food capital of New Zealand with it being crammed with more bars, cafés and restaurants per capita than New York! It is also home to the wearable arts show and many amazing artists call Wellington home.
