10 Differences That Make Eating In Australia Confusing AF For Americans

G’day! There’s a lot of great reasons to visit Australia isn’t there? The wildlife, the people, the beaches, the laid back vibes and of course the fine chunk of Australian beef, Hugh Jackman (you’re welcome).

A Guide To Swimming At The Berry Springs Nature Reserve

It's the end of Australia week on the blog and I am finishing it off by showcasing a few gorgeous photos of the Berry Springs Nature Reserve.

I had never been to Mataranka and felt like this trip was as good a time as any to head down there and see what all the fuss was about. So my husband and I packed some water bottles with our swim gear and off we went down the highway.

Although, lucky for us, we were able to spot a wild Jabiru feeding in a wetland, lots of kangaroos and we even drove through a bushfire, all of which made the drive more entertaining.
