    The Land Down Under: Australia Day on the NSW South Coast!

    For Australia Day in 2012, we had a big celebration in a local park – lots of food, drinks, esky’s, sea baths, flags, sun-baking, rain-dancing, music, laughter, and most importantly cricket -- and this year we intend on doing it all over again!

    Give Me a Home Among the Gum Trees

    Before moving overseas, I always lived in the same post code -- we never moved far from the first house I lived in which was my Nana's house in the suburb of Tumbi Umbi in the Australian state of New South Wales. This nostalgic location looks at those images that to other people, may just look like a tree or a door, but to the person with the connection to them mean so much more.

    Spring Fling Series 7: Terrigal

    The beachside town of Terrigal is a popular spot for tourists and locals alike. A romantic stroll along the beach eating ice cream, run up the Skillion to see the views from the top or taking a date to one of the many restaurants or bars in the area are just some of the many romantic things you could do in this little part of the world. Just don't try to drive into Terrigal on a sunny Saturday morning or you'll be gridlocked!

    Classic Car Show at The Entrance, Australia

    Pretty much any weekend, somewhere in Australia, you will find a classic car show. These classic cars make for great lomography fun with their different colours and shapes. The owners embody the same values as we do, as analogue lovers. I was lucky enough to be able to attend this annual show held at The Entrance in the Australian state of New South Wales.

    Oktoberfest in Australia

    It's that time of the year again when, on any given Friday or Saturday night in October, anywhere around the world, you could stumble upon a lederhosen clad lad and a dirndl dressed lass. Luckily, my birthday is also in October so last year, we were able to combine the two in my hometown on the Central Coast of Australia having a big Oktoberfest celebration.
