If you’re looking for a green space in the city and one of Sydney’s best gardens you can’t go past the Chinese Friendship Gardens. This gorgeous space offers an oasis of calm nestled between the bustle of Sydney’s Chinatown and the ever expanding Darling Harbour precinct. We dropped in at the gardens as a refresher […]
A highlight in the May calendar for fans of outdoor art is Firstcoat, the Toowoomba street art festival. First Coat is an initiative where local and international artists are invited to revive a city wall with colour, drama and creativity. Legal walls are volunteered by local business for the event and artists are each assigned a large […]
Sydney’s Taronga Zoo is located high on a hill on the north side of Sydney Harbour just a 12 minute ferry ride from the city. Not only is it an excellent wildlife park but the views of the city and its iconic opera house and bridge are fantastic.
At 2 Aussie Travellers we take every opportunity to get away and enjoy the great outdoors.

Well to be totally honest I desperately wanted a cuppa while taking a shortcut through the university and thought it was an excellent opportunity to try a lamington […]
This week I wanted to introduce you to the Mary Cairncross scenic reserve in the Sunshine Coast hinterland. Maleny isn’t a big detour for the main highway and a visit to this park is an option even if you’re only passing through or visiting the area for the day. The pristine tract of rain forest includes a 2km […]
