Mecca Coffee

Tucked away in one of Alexandria’s industrial pockets is Mecca’s coffee roastery and cafe, in an old warehouse with gorgeous high ceilings and loads of natural light. An outpost of their CBD and Ultimo digs, the Alexandria space operates as a café at the front, with […]

Six Tanks Brewing Co

After a long drive from Nitmiluk Gorge, we arrived in Darwin for the last 24 hours of our Northern Territory adventure. Kicking things off with some incredibly good sushi, we then hit the Museum and Art Gallery, a natural history buff’s dream that also boasts some fantastic Australian artwork, and a […]

Beautiful Bright

The next stop on our December Victorian adventure was Bright, a beautiful town (there’s even a sign telling you so) in the Ovens Valley in Victoria’s north-eastern alpine region. It’s quite the food and wine destination, with vineyards, hop fields, orchards, and nut farms dotted throughout the […]

Sitting halfway between Albury and Bright, Beechworth is a highly photogenic gold-rush town where the streets are flush with verandah-covered buildings housing all manner of boutiques, gourmet food stores, and various pieces of Ned Kelly history. Oh, and a brewery!

24-hours in Hobart

The problem with 24-hours in Hobart is that it’s simply not enough time to eat all the things one wishes to. This was my second trip there in as many years (you can read about the first one here), and as such I got to tick […]

A Weekend In Mudgee

Country winter FOMO – it’s a thing, and I have it. I grew up in the country, and it’s during winter that I miss it most – those frosty mornings, cosy fireplaces, and mist-covered mountains make winter in the city seem even greyer and more grim. […]

Wayward Brewing

“Carpe bierum” reads the wonderful mural on the wall of Wayward brewery, housed in a converted wine cellar off a laneway on the Annandale side of Camperdown. And it pretty much sums up one of the best breweries in Sydney right now. The beer is excellent, […]
