  • Southbank

    Brisbane Things to Do

    Well, not exactly! But as you pass over Goodwill Bridge you can look down on the ships below that are on display at the Maritime Museum and save the $16 admission fee. For those of us who are not so interested in spending a couple of hours at the museum the bridge is an ideal vantage point to get an idea of what the old boats looked like,...

  • Australian War Memorial

    5 out of 5 stars

    Canberra Things to Do

    I don’t, as a rule, write reviews on one off events, temporary exhibits at museums, galleries and the like as by their very nature they will invariably have finished or be gone by the time my reader gets to visit. I am going to make an exception for 'Mephisto' for two reasons – firstly, the historic significance of the exhibit and, secondly, when...

  • City Center

    Christchurch Things to Do

    I was rather taken with this cone - I think they call it the Chalice - and was surprised to see it there in the Square still in March 2015. I hadn't expected it to survive the quake (maybe it's been restored - great to see it again)

  • Litchfield National Park - Day Trip

    Darwin Things to Do

    If you are in Darwin and looking at tours to Litchfield or parks nearby, DO NOT GO WITH WALLAROO TOURS. The 'prawns and champagne' at sunset (which was rushed) gave us food poisoning and we lost the whole next day of our holiday in Darwin (nausea, vomiting, fatigue, the works). We called the company to tell them we'd got food poisoning from them...

  • Skytower Complex and Casino

    4.5 out of 5 stars

    Auckland Things to Do

    Let's start saying I have a pretty strong fear of the high. This tower is 328 meters and I decided to visit as I never had problems with other panoramic tower I visited before. What I did not know was that the floor of the lift was made of transparent glass so that I practically waited the lift journey finished looking up. Also once you arrive part...

    Port Douglas Things to Do

    At the Coral Sea end of 4 mile beach is a concrete walkway and steps that lead to firstly a great view of the beach and as far as can be seen to the horizon, but also the exclusive and expensive Murphy Street – and to think, we all thought the name Murphy was associated with the poor and downtrodden back in Ireland. Murphy Street is parallel to...

    Napier Things to Do

    Marine Parade, as the name suggests, runs along the sea front. The area is very nice. The fountain here, we only saw in the day time, but at night it is lit, I think in different colours. THE NEW NAPIER ARCH (1938) commemorates the rebuilding of the city, is not very new any more! There is a colonnade, with two smaller arches, the Veronica...

    This part of the park is where we arrived first. There was quite a good size car park, picnic amenities and free Toilets. 1st, I will tell you about the Flora. In April, there wasn't a lot in bloom, so it is best to come in Spring. I still did find some plants of interest, and I really like seeing them growing in the brightly coloured soil. Most...

  • Courthouse

    Goulburn Things to Do

    Looking at the magnificent Victorian Italianate Goulburn Courthouse brought back to my mind some of the grand colonial buildings of India. I certainly hadn’t anticipated seeing such a structure here in what I might unfairly call sleepy old Goulburn. Since Goulburn was the largest town in the district, this court house (the town's fourth and opened...

  • Climb the mount

    Mount Maunganui Things to Do

    One thing that is great to do at the mount is walk up it, but why not try and run it. Locals every day are running up and down , faster than i can walk up it , and with a steep incline you will surely tone up fast. Watching the sun go down was also my favorite, with all the lambs grazing around the edge, you wouldn’t tell your in a town.
