There are some absolutely spectacular waterfalls buried within the many national parks around South East Queensland. Day trips from Brisbane to the Gold Coast in search of some of these waterfalls this year alone has lead me to the popular Natural Bridge, and the hidden Lip Falls. The one I was most eager to go in search of however was the impressive Elabana Falls.
Each day my news feed is flooded with inspirational female bloggers who share a common love of exploring destinations around the globe, solo. I love reading their stories, I find their passion contagious and it makes me want to explore myself and tell my own version of the story. There is just one difference between them and me – I have no desire to jump on a plane by myself and become a solo female traveller.
Never let weather dictate your plans. Whenever I decide to take a quick weekend away, I can almost guarantee Queensland is going to throw some of its crazy weather at me (like when I went to Noosa). So when a weekend came up that both my husband and I had free, we were going camping and we weren’t going to let the forecast stop us!
So with a 100% chance of rain on Sunday we knew we really had to make the most of the Saturday as we would probably end up packing up and leaving first thing in the morning. The drive out to Lake Moogerah only takes around an hour from Brisbane and takes you through some beautiful farmland. After a casual start to the morning, we arrived at around midday ready to set up.
Hidden down the back streets of Albion among the warehouses, it was purely by accident that I stumbled across Vieille Branche, and I am so glad I did. The cafe scene in Brisbane is really starting to present a very mixed and eclectic style as each place tries to show off it’s unique twist. This is one of the most interesting places I have enjoyed a cup of coffee and I was so happy to have my camera with me to take a few snaps!
