The Boat Shed on Dove Lake from the walking trail.

05 Jun How to Plan the Perfect Trip to Cradle Mountain

Cradle Mountain carves out a dramatic entrance to the northern end of Cradle Mountain-Lake St Clair National Park. Its jagged ridges, dropping away into glacial lakes, form a unique backdrop for photographing and hiking Tasmania. Part of the Tasmanian Wilderness World Heritage Area, Cradle Mountain's remote position requires a little more planning to make for a safe and comfortable trip. After visiting the site from Launceston and spending a couple of days there I've come away with plenty of tips to make your stay an easy one...

All white streets of Frigiliana in Spain.

22 May What to See and Do in Picturesque Frigiliana

Andalusia is best known for its mix of beautiful beaches and historic cities dotted along the south of Spain. However, its pueblos blancos (white villages) tucked away in the hills between Sierra de Grazalema and Sierra Nevada, offer a lesser-known travel experience. We were lucky enough to squeeze Frigiliana into our road trip through southern Spain, the town often labelled as Andalusia's prettiest. Quiet, quaint and colourful in its presentation, Frigiliana is not to be missed for travellers seeking out beautiful facades. Appearances aside, this village community has relaxed living down pat, making it the perfect place for stress-free travel. Here's how to experience all aspects of the town, making the most of sun-drenched Spain...

Launceston travel guide

10 Apr Your Quick Guide to Exploring Picturesque Launceston

Launceston often plays little sister to capital city Hobart but is not to be overlooked during a trip to Tasmania. This smaller riverside city offers a quintessential country experience with its mix of Georgian facades and sprawling farmlands. Located on the north coast it is the perfect spot to commence or concluded a trip around the island state. Launceston's attractions range from boutique shopping and wine tasting to rock climbing and river cruising. With so many experiences on offer if can be hard to know what to prioritise. And when your holiday is limited you want to know that any time you set aside here will be worth it. After spending two weeks in Tasmania I found Launceston to be the perfect summary of everything the state has to offer. Here are my favourite finds in the quaint city that make for a balanced trip...

Waterfront Accommodation Hobart

02 Mar Visual Tour of Somerset on the Pier Hobart

Hobart is a location synonymous with the coastal lifestyle. Even if you've never visited you've most likely heard of Constitution Dock, the spot where Sydney to Hobart winners celebrate their race finish. It made sense then, for our first trip to Hobart, to seek out accommodation close to the waterfront. Somerset on the Pier goes one better by putting you right on the water. The set of serviced apartments occupies a 1930's building along Elizabeth Street Pier. It's proximity to the waterfront precincts and unique view of Sullivan's Cove stood out to me as a great spot to base our activities from. Location aside, there are other benefits to staying in a serviced apartment too, which I'll discuss below. Throw in some fresh seafood sold straight from the boat and you've got every ocean-lovers perfect location...

Four Seasons Lisbon Review

27 Feb Video Tour of the Breathtaking Four Seasons in Lisbon

I've been really excited about sharing this post with you since our visit to Portugal last year. Aside from the usual thrill I get from capturing a new destination, our visit to Lisbon had the added excitement of a video project at Four Seasons Hotel Ritz. This is a hotel that epitomises luxury and for us videographers, offers up beautiful shots around every corner. Having explored the lower part of town in the days prior, a visit to Four Seasons allowed us to enjoy the spoils of 5-star accommodation in the cosmopolitan part of town. In fact, we barely left the hotel at all in our two nights there. Instead, choosing to take in the sunset from the rooftop running track (yes, you read that right) and living the fluffy robe life. That said, it's time to experience the most opulent hotel in Lisbon for yourself…
