Caution: Fun Australia Trips Ahead

Taking two 25-hour flights for 7 days’ vacation sounds like fuzzy math, but for Dutchnatasja, Australia was worth it. The only person logging more hours in the air lately, laurandave, agrees. So does lo7la, who recently added entry #35 to her Melbourne journal (now there’s a number we like!). See why Australia inspires such long-distance devotion as the ladies share their trips.

Dutchnatasja checks off one of her dream destinations with a drive from Sydney to Canberra (and those 50 flying hours). Her adventure gave her “a taste of the capital, the coast, and the countryside,” which she’s sharing, so far, via five reviews, one experience, and a roll of iconic Australia photos.

Ever wonder how kangaroos roll? World traveler laurandave did, so she made time to make merry with the marsupials at the Australia Zoo in Queensland during a stop on her tour of the US, Thailand, Malaysia, New Zealand, and Oz. For the record, they seem to roll quite reservedly, judging by this close-up.

One-time Melbourne resident lo7la is back to writing about the very southern city, tacking a couple of new reviews onto her comprehensive Exploring Melbourne journal. If you’re in need of some unique entertainment—or just about anything else—while in Melbourne, start here. Her list of reviews should occupy you during quite a bit of that long flight.
