Hi, and welcome to 2 Aussie Travellers. I’m Toni and I’m happy to see you here. Why don’t you grab a cuppa and I’ll show you around?
I started this website, together with my husband Drew, to share our travel photos, experiences and the lessons we learned along the way. Travel budgets are limited for most of us so we’re here to help you squeeze the most fun times and fabulous adventures you can out of every travel dollar.
We live by the philosophy that you shouldn’t wait for the holidays to enjoy yourself, explore and experience new things. Get out and see what’s going on in your city. Take short breaks and get away for the weekends. Even a day trip can turn up a completely new experience and a destination you’d not found before.
I was born in the UK, lived a large part of my life in New Zealand, spent a short time in the USA and for the past 16 years I’ve called Australia home. We’ve travelled to 25+ countries and can claim a passport from three.
Our key travel destinations
Our travel plans continue to focus on Australia, Japan, New Zealand and the wider Asia Pacific region.
Australia is our home, Queensland to be precise but we plan to see it all eventually. It’s a huge country and we’ve been fortunate to see so much already but we won’t be done until we have explored all corners and as much as possible of what lies in between.
New Zealand is our second home, it will always have a strong draw for us with many family and friends based there, and we will continue to return regularly. It has so much natural diversity and beauty in such a compact package. A trip ‘home’ to New Zealand is always quite exceptional.
Japan has been my long-time passion. It all started with a school project when I was 7 years old. We’ve been travelling back frequently now since 2010, over 13 years, and we still have so much more we want to see, do and share with you. Another trip with exciting new destinations off the beaten track is in the planning stage and we can’t wait to share it with you.
We hope you’ll find some inspiration, useful information and planning tips that will help you on your own adventures. We’ll also be keeping you updated with what there is to see, do and eat in South East and Central Queensland in case you find yourself passing through our home base sometime soon.
