Last week I headed north to Hervey Bay, home of the best Humpback whale watching experience in Australia.
When I go for a run at sparrows-fart-early there’s already loads of people hitting the tarmac along the river. As I ride to work I’m overtaken by lycra-clad cyclists on their way to the local coffee-shop. When I jump in the pool at 6am there’s already swimmers churning up the surface of the water.
If like me you sometimes leave it all to the last minute here’s a few suggestions of activities you could do around Queensland…
I’ve travelled the length of the state taking part in some ridiculously adventurous activities.
It’s almost 18 months ago since I sat down with the teams from Google Australia and Underwater Earth (UE) to discuss the concept of taking Google’s Streetview underwater on the Great Barrier Reef.
Fishing. It’s a funny old game you know. The single most popular hobby, sport, pastime in the world by a long shot.
I’ve travelled to Queensland’s tropical north to sample exactly what I’ll be taking on later in the year. My first ever adventure race.
Real-life dinosaurs, a murder mystery and the BIGGEST birthday cake ever!
A cooking course isn’t usually what I’d consider an adventure. Living in a city doesn’t have to mean the end to that lifestyle, far from it. It’s a chance to embark on micro-adventures – ones that might not test my physical side, more the mental.
