Top 5 Places to visit Between Sydney and the Sunshine Coast

Top 5 Places to visit Between Sydney and the Sunshine Coast

It‘s always hard to choose which Top 5 Places will make the cut when putting together a guide such as this.  This whole incredible coastline is well worth exploring but when you only have time to visit one or two places, we feel that the following are standouts. I hope this gives you a little bit of inspiration when you plan your next road trip between Sydney and the Sunny Coast.

1. South West Rocks, NSW

  • Explore Southwest Rocks, a quiet, laid back coastal town that is often skipped by holidaymakers. There are plenty of options for accommodation, beautiful foreshores and beaches and those infamous Norfolk pines.
  • Trial Bay Gaol, Arakoon. A great place for a day trip or to pull up and camp.
    • Tour the historic ruins of the gaol.
    • Hang out at the beach fishing, snorkelling, surfing, watching whales and dolphins.
    • There are plenty of great walking tracks in the area ranging from 1.2 km to 20km.
    • Way Way Creek Road Drive/Ride. A 17km loop that offers a leisurely scenic drive or a fun day of bike riding.
  • Smoky Cape Lighthouse, Hat Head National Park.
    • Climb the path to the heritage listed lighthouse and check out the stunning coastal views of Hat Head National Park.
    • Picnic or BBQ on the lush, grassy areas at the base of the lighthouse.
    • Whale watching, and bird watching is also popular here.
    • You can even book the Smoky Cape Lighthouse Keepers Cottage – self-contained cottages that once housed the light keepers and their families! These restored and re-purposed cottages sit right on the path to the lighthouse.

Check out the nearby ‘Heads’.

  • Hat Head
    • This area is great for beach fishing, rock fishing and deep-sea fishing.
    • Isolated beaches to the south are there for the more experienced surfers and the southern end of Hat Head is more suited for beginners.
    • Hat Head National Park is well worth exploring with its stunning walking tracks, incredible sand dunes and beautiful, clear lakes.
    • Snorkel in Hat Head Creek.
    • There is a great campground in between the ocean, river and national park.
  • Crescent Head
    • This is one of the most famous surf spots in all of Australia and is home to the annual Crescent Head Malibu Classic.
    • Killick Creek is great for young kids and families.
    • Beautiful beaches are everywhere around here! Try Point Plomer for surfing, Goolawah Beach for some ‘alone’ time and if the weather is right, Delicate Beach for snorkelling.
  • Scott’s Head
    • Great for young kids. With its calm waves and a large, sandy, patrolled (during Summer holidays) beach, it’s a favourite holiday destination for young families.
    • There are a number of surf spots with a variety of surf breaks.
    • Camping or Day Trips. There is a lovely camping and recreation reserve right by the beach with great amenities, fresh water, picnic tables and free gas BBQ’s.
    • Bushwalking
    • Fishing.

2. Coffs Harbour


  • The Promised Land, near Bellingen, NSW. This lush, peaceful and almost magical destination is a hidden gem in the Never Never region. Crystal clear creeks and waterholes, impressive mountains, rolling green hills and majestic homesteads make this perfect for swimming, relaxing, cycling or walking on the many trails.
  • If you have a couple of days to spare, you can do the Waterfall Way Drive. Check out our pre-planned trip on Campedia.


  • Moonee, another hidden gem not far from Coffs Harbour is a popular destination for locals and tourists alike.
    • Catch the tide as it flows out to the ocean by floating down Moonee Creek on a lilo. It takes a very relaxing three hours.
    • Explore Look At Me Headland. It’s an easy 1.6km hike with stunning views the whole way.
    • Surfing.
    • Fishing.
  • Orara East State Forest
    • Take in the sweeping panoramic views over Coffs Harbour and the surrounding mountains from the Forest Sky Pier, a 15-metre-high, 21-metre-long lookout jutting out over the forest below.
    • Coffs Treetops awaits those who want to ‘monkey around’ in the trees. Great for the kids!
    • Do one of the many rainforest walks ranging from 10 minutes to 3 hours. Tracks are well maintained and sign posted.

3.Black Rocks, Bundjalung National Park, NSW

Sand dunes, huge black rocks, perfect grassy campsites, and a spectacular coastline – this is Black Rocks, NSW – an incredible natural paradise about 60km north of Grafton.

  • Kayak along the beautiful tree-lined Jerusalem Creek, go for a walk and have a bite to eat in the Booroora Picnic Area. 4.6km one way.
  • Daytrip to Woody Head and/or Iluka, both spectacular places. If you have some extra time to spend in the area, Woody Head Campground is a favourite of ours. The beach is just beautiful!
  • Beach fishing on Ten Mile Beach.

4. Springbrook National Park

An ancient wonderland of rainforests, waterfalls, escarpments, rock formations and valleys just 45 minutes from the Gold Coast. You could easily spend a few days exploring here. Click here to see more.


  • Waterfalls
    • Purlingbrook Falls (4km)
    • Twin Falls Circuit (2 hours, 4km return)
  • Natural Bridge, a stunning rock formation with a small waterfall, is well known for its glow worms, fireflies and other wildlife. It’s a lovely walk but swimming is no longer permitted.
  • The Best of All Lookout surely does live up to its name. It’s more a question of ‘What can’t you see?’ than ‘What can you see?’ The dazzling Gold Coast Hinterland stretches right out to the Pacific Ocean and as far as Byron Bay; an extraordinary sweeping panorama of Queensland and New South Wales.
  • Springbrook State School, a heritage listed schoolhouse erected in 1911.

5.Cooloola Coast

The famous rainbow sands, endless sweeping beaches, freshwater lakes, towering sand dunes and crystal-clear waters keep beach lovers and campers returning enthusiastically to Rainbow Beach, Teewah Beach and Double Island Point. Located about two and a half hours drive north of Brisbane, this is the place to go for camping, surfing, fishing, digging up pippies, catching mud crabs, whale watching, boating and heaps of other water activities. Beach Driving and Camping Permits are required.

  • Double Island Point, which can be reached 2-3 hours either side of low tide is where the stunning scenery and many options for water activities make a really popular place to spend the day.
  • Take the 2.2km walk up to the Double Island Point Historic Lighthouse on the headland to take in the stunning 360 views. There is no accommodation and camping is not permitted at DI, so it’s day trips only. Don’t forget to check the tides!
  • Rainbow Beach with its famous, coloured sands, impressive Carlo Sand Blow and around 30km of beach is also a favourite holiday destination. There is plenty of accommodation to choose from including camping, resorts and beach houses.


As I mentioned at the beginning, the entire east coast is stunning and you could spend months, if not years enjoying all that it has to offer. I hope this has given you a glimpse into the endless possibilities  available to you! Please, let us know in the comments if you have been to any of these places and what are your favourite east coast holiday destinations. Happy exploring and safe travels!

Crocodile Harry – Coober Pedy’s Hugh Hefner!

Crocodile Harry – Coober Pedy’s Hugh Hefner!

WARNING! This is not the kind of attraction to drag the kids along too. Don’t get me wrong – they would probably love it, but, you would definitely have a whole lot of questionable questions being fired at you!

Coober Pedy’s legendary Crocodile Harry died in 2006 at age 81, but he sure has left a legacy behind. In a town as quirky as Coober Pedy where underground living and random stuff (junk) lying around is normal, it takes a site as insane as Crocodile Harry’s Underground Nest & Dugout to really stand out. 

When we arrived, it felt like we had pulled into the driveway of a home on some far away planet. We parked beside a rusty old combi with flat tyres that was covered in graffiti – Harry’s Hideout and For Harry from WA. Painted on the back of the van was a woman in a bikini lounging against a palm tree and on the side, a topless woman being embraced by a sunglasses wearing crocodile. Welcome to the Crocodile’s Nest!

As we walked into the front yard, we became surrounded by the bizarre … mounds of dirt with rusty bicycles, pots and pans, old bones made into ‘art’, old cars dug into the ground, cacti and, well, we didn’t know where to start!

Harry was a much-loved larrikin during his 31 years here in Coober Pedy and spinning a good yarn was something he loved to do. According to Harry, he was christened a baron in Latvia, fought in WWII where he was badly injured, and was even captured by the Americans at one point! He also claims that after the war he defected and fled to Australia in 1951 and that is when he started hunting crocodiles. Harry also claims to be the inspiration for Crocodile Dundee!

Just ask the locals who remember what life around here was like while Harry was partying with backpackers at his place. I have been told that this was a very popular hangout for the younger visitors to the area, and that the town just hasn’t been the same since his passing all those years ago.

The Crocodile’s Nest is six kilometres out of town and must be one of the weirdest places I’ve ever seen. It is filled with crude artwork, painting, graffiti, random objects, car parts, old school porn (VHS!), women’s underwear, photo albums, Harry’s personal belongings and tributes from thousands of people who visited during and after Harry’s life. Some of these random objects have been placed by visitors, but most were put there by Harry (Arvid) himself. The first thing you notice as you approach the front door is a hideous looking mermaid with a skull and large breasts. As you walk in, things just get crazier.

The place has been left as it was when Harry was there. Slide the drawers open and you’ll see Harry’s clothes. Have a look in the bathroom and his razor is still sitting there with bottle of soap. On his desk are cards, a typewriter, and framed photo of someone – maybe his dad?

Harry’s Dugout is so strangely unique it was used in a scene from the Mad Max movie, Beyond Thunderdome. This is what shot him to local legend status and the notorious womanizer began charging admission to visit his home.

Crocodile Harry has been recognized worldwide thanks to news articles, a documentary filmed in 1955 called Krokodiky Harijis (Crocodile Harry in Latvian), and the 2 books he wrote recording his early expeditions, Latvian Crocodile Hunter in Australia (1957) and Long After The Sun (1958). Legend has it that Harry killed as many as 10,000 crocodiles (some say 40,000) to sell for cash over his two decades as a croc poacher before retiring as an opal hunter and living in his underground home (dugout) in Coober Pedy.

I feel like I need to add that as he got older, he settled down a little and got married. OK, maybe settled down is a bit of a stretch! Harry first met Marta by letter after a photo of him without a shirt appeared in a German magazine. Women began writing to him and Marta was one of them. Even though she was married, Marta left her husband and moved to Coober Pedy, to live with Harry. As the many sculptures indicate, Harry was clearly a ‘boob man’ and at least one of these sculptures is of Marta who also contributed to some of the art in the dugout.

The couple was interviewed by the Australian Woman’s Weekly back in 1981, and had their picture snapped beside the big crocodile sculpture that’s still in the dugout today.

Thankfully Harry’s dugout remains and has been turned into a museum for curious visitors like us. And he hasn’t been forgotten in his hometown of Latvia either. There is a 2-tonne statue of a saltwater crocodile in his honour that many tourists find a bit odd. The Visit Dundaga website says:
The concrete sculpture by O. Skarainis was constructed in 1995 and this is a memory sign devoted to the strong men of Dundaga and a reminder about the adventures of the former Dundaga resident Arvīds Blūmentāls who was a traveller and a crocodile hunter in Australia. He hunted about 10 000 crocodiles at his place of residence and has been the prototype for the famous movie by Paul Hogan «Crocodile Dandy».

My conclusion is that Crocodile Harry was the crocodile hunting Hugh Hefner of Coober Pedy! If you decide to pop in for a visit, see if you can find where Aussie Destinations Unknown has been scraped into the wall (hint … naked white lady with chain 😉).

7 Day Menu Plan. How We Shed Those Few Pesky Kilos During Lockdown Without Exercising!

7 Day Menu Plan. How We Shed Those Few Pesky Kilos During Lockdown Without Exercising!

OK, so we don’t actually know how many kilos we’ve lost as we don’t carry scales with us, but what we know we have lost are a few double chins, a couple of muffins tops, some back blubber and the bad moods from being ‘frumpy’.

We have been on the road full time since October 2020 and keeping on top of the healthy lifestyle has been challenging, but, with a little pre-planning you can keep on top of it!

We have been in lock down in Coober Pedy for 7 days. 7 DAYS! (Today is our last day). And to make it worse, the weather has been extremely average making exercise almost impossible. The winds have been howling to the point where Chris is starting to lose his mind. You know those people who can’t handle windy days? Well, he’s one of them. And we aren’t talking the occasional gusts here and there, we are talking incessant howling winds of about 40km that continue all day and right through the night. We had one day in the middle where it calmed a bit and I raced outside and squeezed in 15 minutes of a workout before being forced back into the caravan.

Cranky Chris hates the wind! 😂

And if I’ll be really honest, I’ve been sitting in front of this computer smashing out what I can while we are forced to sit still. I’ve walked to the amenities twice: once to take a long shower and wash my hair and once to use the loo when Chris went to dump ours. I’ve also walked to the laundry 4 times, and that’s it.

Cups of herbal tea in between meals are great!

 So how, during this time, have we both managed to shed the blubber? Food. That’s how! As soon as we heard we were in lock down, we decided that this was it. Well, we’ve been saying that for a while now, but this was it for real!  This is the time we actually got back to eating how we used to eat all the time. No snacking on junk, no carby wraps (gluten free or not) and no ‘just this time’. No compromise at all. We have been low carb/keto for the entire time and I’m going to share with you exactly what we ate on what days and when. You can copy what we did, modify it to suit your lifestyle or just laugh at us for not eating sugar! What you do with this info is up to you, but let me just say, it hasn’t been hard at all, and we feel 100% better.

Bacon and eggs with all the extras – loaded with butter!

The food. What you put into your body matters, it really does! We have been 100% gluten free this week. No exceptions. Reduced dairy, but not entirely dairy-free. Drinking lots of water and no alcohol (I don’t drink but Chris usually does. This time he has had just one beer). We eat a high (healthy) fat diet so we add butter to almost everything. Avocado and coconut oils are also common ingredients in my cooking. We add oils to salads and avocado is often added to meals. And this week, we’ve had crepes every single night. I just make a big batch whenever we run out! Usually I menu plan, but not this week. It was just grab the ingredients I know are healthy and make what I can using them. If we eat the same meal twice – so be it!

Chris has a black coffee every morning (sometimes he uses the coffee machine and sometimes he has COFFEE SWITCH) and I have a shake with my supplements in it. I also have a shake before bed. I have trouble sleeping and I have adrenal issues. My night shake with Adrenal Switch really helps with this.

SWITCH NUTRITION PRODUCTS: You can use our discount code ADUCREW on all products at I have been having this same shake for over 6 years now. I worked with my naturopath over many years to find out what my nutritional deficiencies are and take supplements to suit. Some are powders and those are what I add into my shake. You don’t have to do this, but it’s a good idea to find out if you have any deficiencies and address them 😁


What’s in my shakes:


We haven’t been snacking much, but when we do it’s:

  • Boiled eggs (I ‘boil’ these in my air fryer!)
  • Salami or a few twiggy sticks
  • Soft cheese (gouda, havaarti, brie, camembert etc)
  • Nuts (not peanuts)
  • Cucumber rounds (used like crackers) with deli meat/soft cheese
  • Cottage cheese with avocado

I’ve been drinking my supplement shake for over 6 years!


what we ate during lock down and when


I’ve kept things really simple. No fancy recipes and nothing that takes too long (aside from the crepes). Of course meal times vary a little but this gives you a rough idea.

Breakfast. None. Chris had a coffee, and I had my usual supplements shake.

12:30 pm Lunch. Bacon, eggs, halloumi and ½ an avocado each.

5:30 pm Dinner. Crack Slaw.

7:00 pm Dessert. Gluten Free Crepes.

CREPE TOPPINGS: (these are what we have)

  • strawberries
  • blueberries
  • dairy free cream (or normal cream)
  • butter
  • Natvia NO SUGAR syrup (I love the caramel Chris loves the chocolate!)
  • Nuttvia Hazlenut Spread
  • lemon juice and Sukrin icing sugar


And there you have it! This is what we ate during our lock down in Coober Pedy. As your body starts to adapt, you will find yourself craving less food and generally being less hungry. When we are in the ‘rythm’, it isn’t uncommon for us to not eat lunch until 2:00 and Chris sometimes does 24 hours fasts. We both love intermittent fasting and what it does for our health. Women do need to be careful with hormones though, so don’t push past the 15 hour mark without some sort of fat (I have a tsp of coconut oil).

I (Miriam) am a certified nutrition coach and personal trainer. That’s how I know stuff 😉

Air Fryer Hard Boiled Eggs

Air Fryer Hard Boiled Eggs

My air fryer never ceases to amaze me. Sure, it does great sweet potato fries and an INSANELY delicious pork belly roast, but did you know you can do simple things like fry and even ‘BOIL’ EGGS in your air fryer?

Try this and let me know how you go! I haven’t ‘boiled’ an egg in water for years.

This method is so easy and it’s never not worked for me. But – if it goes wrong for you, please don’t blame me! Lol. I have the Philips XXL 2225w air fryer so you may need to modify according to what you are using.



  • Raw eggs. I cook between 4-6 at any one time. No need to bring to room temp – straight out of the fridge is fine!


  1. Preheat the air fryer to 120° C for about 3 minutes
  2. Place the eggs in the airfryer basket or baking dish (I use the baking dish accessory).
  3. Cook for 16 minutes
  4. Remove from the air fryer, and pop them in a bowl of cold water for 10 minutes
  5. Peel the eggs, slice the tops off … or paint them. Whatever it is you want do with your ‘hard boiled’ eggs!


Gluten Free Crepes

Gluten Free Crepes

We all want the perfect crepes every time, right? Well – this recipe has never failed me. It makes delicious, thin and delicate crepes that are perfect for stacking and/or filling and rolling. I’ve cooked it in a variety of frying pans, whipped it up in the thermomix and using a hand blender. I’ve used cows milk and macadamia milk and I’ve made it with and without the arrowroot flour. Have a play and see what works for you. Adjust the liquid to your desired thickness and then flip when it’s as cooked as you like! Remember, crepes are fragile and can be hard to flip, so keep practicing!


  • 120 g cream cheese (preferably softened, but it doesn’t matter if you’re using the thermi!)
  • 4 large eggs
  • 3/4 (about 75 g) cup almond flour
  • 1/4 cup arrowroot flour (about 35 g) Omit for lower carb count
  • 2 Tbsp sweetener (I use Sukrin Gold)
  • 1/4 cup milk of choice (I prefer macadamia)
  • Dash of salt
  • Oil or butter for the pan (I find a blob of butter per crepe works (and tastes) best!)


  1. Blend all ingredients thoroughly in a high powered blender (I use my Thermomix) and allow to rest for at least 5 minutes to thicken.
  2. Preheat the pans over medium heat (I use 2 at a time to speed up the process!)
  3. Place a blob of butter into the pan and swirl it around. Don’t use too much if you are swirling the batter as it can mess up the batter.
  4. Pour about 4Tbsp of batter in the middle and either swirl it around or use a wooden crepe spreader (that’s what I use).
  5. Allow to cook until the batter is almost dry on top
  6. I slip part of the spatula under the side and lift the crepe a little with my finger before sliding the spatula all the way under and flipping holding it a little with my fingers. This tends to stop them tearing or folding over themselves. If you’re a smarty pants you could flip it just using the pan and a flick of the wrist! But – well, that’s not me (yet!)!
  7. Cook them all and then eat them up. Or save them for later. These store well and remain pliable for a dew days in an airtight container in the fridge. 
  8. We use the Natvia sugar free syrups and toppings (chocolate, caramel etc), berries, bananas, jam, cream and so on. Chris stacks them and I roll them.

Have fun and please let me know how you go in the comments below
