I highly recommend Kahaluu Bay if you are snorkelling novices like Mike and I. What attracted me most about Kahaluu Bay was the facilities – shower, toilets, snorkel gear rental, locker, carpark, a food truck and lifeguards.
If you haven’t been to Big Island, you haven’t been to the real “Hawaii”. In fact, the State of Hawaii is named after the Big Island, aka “Hawai’i”, which is the State’s biggest island.
Wait, there are different islands in Hawaii? Yes! I only learned that Hawaii is so much more than Waikiki and Honolulu (which, by the way, are on the island of Oahu) as I started planning our trip. The most difficult part was deciding which islands to visit for our 10-day holiday…Each island has its own charm and so much to see – and holidays are always too short.
The Big Stone is a small and cozy neighbourhood gem that offers an interesting fusion of Japanese cuisine + Spanish tapas. I was skeptical at first, but soon pleasantly surprised by how the seemingly unrelated concepts worked perfectly well together.
I have never had a better breakfast buffet in Sydney than Sokyo’s. For $38, you get a continental buffet, an a la carte dish and tea/coffe. Yes, Sokyo’s breakfast buffet is worth every cent of your money.
If you are looking for a cozy and fun place to relax and chitchat with friends with a sip or two of fruity cocktail and comfort food while you soak up the warm aussie sunshine, I have the answer for you – The Potting Shed.
Better yet, they take reservations!
This unassuming van at Triabunna, The Fish Van, gave us most satisfying meal in Tasmania.
We never miss a chance to eat fresh seafood in Tasmania. Freycinet Marine Farm has a selection of both hot and cold seafood, which makes it a good pitstop to and from the Freycinet National Park.
One of the biggest highlights of the Tasmanian east coast is Wineglass Bay. The beautiful curve of dazzling white sand crafted by mother nature holds the turquoise ocean like a glass of mesmerising potion.
I have always loved pick-you-own fruit farms. I cannot quite put my finger on why I enjoy it so much, but there is something theraupedic about fruit-picking that brings me happiness.
Our first stop after we landed in Hobart was to visit the Sorell Fruit Farm.
E: “Can we go to Tasmania in December?”
M: “Tasmania again? Why?”
E: “I want to see the lavenders…”
That’s how our conversation went right before I booked our third trip to Tasmania. Luckily, the moody Tasmanian weather brightened up just as we got to the Bridestowe Lavender Farm and blessed us with a whole afternoon of clear blue sky.
