The main street in Arrowtown feels like a blast into an Old mining town. The vibe is unique and worth stopping to enjoy. If you're lucky, you can find a park right in the middle (like we did in our @wildernessnz Vista 2) #wildernessnz#arrowtownnz
As we head into #whalewatching season, we thought we would share some prime locations on #Straddie to spot the gentle giants 🐋
✔️#PointLookout is the most easterly point in Queensland, making it a breathtaking land-based vantage point to spot the majestic creatures. ✔️Sit back, relax and enjoy the view with a pair of binoculars on Frenchman’s Beach as whales are often known to visit close to shore.
✔️Book on a whale watching tour with @straddiekingfishertours. If you’re lucky you might also spot dolphins, turtles, sharks and manta rays along the way. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Saturday morning reflections from Manly Boat Harbour... 🚤 🛥 ⛵️ located 19km east of Brisbane’s central business district. I always like to learn something about the places I visit. Did you know Manly Boat Harbour is now the largest boat harbour facility in the Southern Hemisphere with space for 3,000 dry standings and wet berths (a little nautical terminology there⛵️🛶⚓️)! Anyway the silt that was taken from the harbour in 1958 to make it deeper was used to used to construct parks along the foreshore. Those parks are really excellent green spaces today 🌿🍃🌳🌲and very popular, especially on the weekend where securing a parking place anywhere near here after 8am isn’t easy. Happy Saturday everyone. 💛🌼🌞🌟✨☀️
Three weeks ago this one was dog-shy. Seriously wouldn’t have a bar of me. She didn’t want to bring me home. She hid in her room. I showed her how to love me by being a gentle and funny floofball and now we’re besties. She loves telling me to sit and gives me pats and treats from her hand. I let her do it a million times a day cos I think she’s so sweet. #stellassisters#saturdayfunday#kidsanddogs
