Welcome to Kondoli ~ Victor Harbor SA

There’s a lookout area that you can drive into as you enter the town of Victor Harbor on the Fleurieu Peninsula in South Australia that’s often overlooked by those of us familiar with the area. The view is always something that grabs your attention as you drive into the town and is one that makes you go wow as you see the big blue expanse of water come into view. From here you can also see Granite Island and the causeway that leads to it, and the hills of Victor Harbor with houses sprawling in all directions.

Food Tourism – Yes Please

A favourite aspect of being on holidays for me is the eating out at cafes, restaurants and clubs, trying the food that someone else has prepared and cooked.

Windy with a Chance of Huge Swell.

surfing AustraliaThe wet, windy and wild weather we have been experiencing lately in South Australia has been whipping up some huge waves along the coastline and for as far as the eye can see. The white peaks and troughs of waves are visible to the horizon in fact. The conditions have reminded me of a trip we did to the east coast a while ago during winter where I saw the biggest surf I’ve ever seen in this country.

Having a Shot List for Travel Photography

Byron Bay sunriseWhen planning a driving holiday in Australia, don’t forget to plan a ‘shot list’ of where and what you want to take photographs of. Even if you don’t publish photos and you’re just doing it for the memories or to create a photobook at home later, having a bit of a plan for the images you would like to get can be a good idea and enable you to get those postcard, or these days, Instagram images.
