When you think about Australian cities, you are all probably thinking about the same place - Sydney! This is undoubtedly the iconic place throughout the Southern Hemisphere and certainly a city worth visiting if you are fortunate enough to travel to Australia. When we decided to head to Brisbane and Gold Coast for our Honeymoon over Christmas 2012, I...
The hub of entertainment for all ages in Sydney is the area known as Darling Harbour. This area is home to a precinct of attractions, notably many of which attract thousands of visitors every day. There are plenty of things to do for the whole family at Darling Harbour, with so many of Sydney's attractions to choose from. There's hands-on fun,...
The setting is majestic, the architecture is magnificent and the atmosphere is memorable! Everything about visiting the Sydney Opera House and Sydney Harbour Bridge provides visitors with a brilliant example of how iconic imagery can be used to stereotype a city. If we polled 100 people about what the most landmark in Sydney (or even Australia), you would be...
Lone Pine is the world's first and largest koala sanctuary, serving the community since 1927. Lone Pine strives itself on a place for visitors to get closer to nature. They are located on the banks of the Brisbane River otherwise known as "Fig Tree Pocket", for many years this was the only way you could enter, nowadays Lone Pine...
While we were walking along Queen Street in the heart of Brisbane's Central Business District, we noticed an Information Center where we discovered this Koala and River Cruise by Mirimar Cruises pamphlet. After researching the cruise, we decided that this would be the best bet for us if we wanted to go to Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary given that...
England has miles of beautiful coastline and the Fylde Coast in North West England, which stretches from Lytham St. Annes all the way to Fleetwood, is certainly no different. With this being so close to my home town of Ramsbottom, I have been fortunate enough to visit this part of the country of several occasions in the past but...
So...stood in the middle of Sydney with time ticking by, what to do first? Our intentions were to follow the "Sydney in a Day" guide so we opted to follow suit and climb atop the Sydney Tower to provide a bird's eye view of Sydney and see exactly what this city had to offer. The directions indicated that "the...
Ending 2012 and starting 2013 in Australia was a first for both of us and it was certainly a memorable experience. Although Sydney is stereotypically the place to be to celebrate the New Year in Oz, we were based in Brisbane and without a doubt "the Brisbanites" know how to party to bring in the New Year Down Under! The...
2012 was probably our first year of serious traveling. We were fortunate to visit several different locations together and we certainly expanded our knowledge of different regions of the world. This was also our debut year for "Tourist Guide Central" which originated from our constant traveling that gave us the inspiration to begin sharing our experiences with the world....
It's been several years since I had visited the Lakes and yet again I was left astonished by the true beauty that surrounds the English countryside when we visited here during our trip to England in November 2012. This was Heather's first trip to the Lake District and I don't think she left disappointed with what she saw. Bowness and...
