Whale Watching in Huskisson, Jervis Bay

The wind was in my hair and I could taste the saltiness in the air. There was clear blue waters as far as the eye can see. I was happy. It was our first road trip from Canberra and we were glad that we chose this piece of paradise for a short getaway. We were in Jervis Bay, home to migrating whales between May to November. I had bought our tickets in advance and was...

The autumn breeze still had a bite of chill as we parked alongside one of Canberra’s chic and eclectic street. We had heard so much about this restaurant and we were looking forward to sample its famous breakfast menu. It was 8am when...
