    Travel: Cape Hillsborough National Park

    Cape Hillsborough National Park is a must see if you’re in Queensland, Australia. It’s full of hikes, beaches, and a clean campground that has kangaroos bouncing around like they own the place! We didn’t have our Boler, for obvious reasons, so we rented one of their super basic cabins for the few nights we stayed. It was sufficient, yet we weren’t big fans of all the little signs telling us ‘we need to…’ – felt unnecessary. Overall, though, worth the stop for sure! Okay, let’s…

    Travel: Andrews Point

    Andrews Point in Cape Hillsborough National Park – it’s one of Queensland, Australia’s most beautiful hikes. Let’s check out some unbelievable photos.

  • Sunrise on the Beach

    Travel: Sunrise on the Beach

    Sunrise on the beach in Australia. This is Cape Hillsborough and it’s an incredible place to watch the sunrise and perhaps catch a kangaroo or two snacking. For those of you who use Microsoft 365, you might recognize this place – I didn’t have it pop up on my work screen until sometime in January, but I was so excited when it did. I was like, I know that place! Okay, let’s check out some photos. Sunrise on the Beach We woke up around 4:55am…
