The Magic Tree at Scarborough Beach, Queensland

Calling all parents and grandparents who have little people interested in magic…

In my own backyard of Scarborough Beach, Moreton Bay Region– there’s a magic tree.  This comes in the shape of an ancient Norfolk Pine that is well  is worth a visit with your little people.

Reliable chatter has it Gollum and his team of Hobbits have taken up residence behind a medieval door in the base of the ancient tree!

Story Bridge Climb Adventure When You’re Over 60

Story Bridge Climb – An Adventure Waiting

Let’s do a bridge climb!

There are three organised bridge climbs in the world – all unique in their own way.  Brisbane Story Bridge,  Sydney Harbour Bridge and the Auckland Harbour Bridge.

Thousands of cars travel across these massive steel and concrete monsters each day. Now hundreds of people seeking a day of adventure are climbing these gigantic steel structures.

My first bridge climb was the Brisbane Story Bridge at the ripe old age of 63. The birthday “gift climb voucher” I considered to be only marginally better than the one received to have my ears pierced when turning 40!
