The Gingerbread House in Katoomba – a treat for the kids

The Gingerbread House in Katoomba The Gingerbread House in Katoomba is a cool little spot to take the kids for a treat if you’re in the Bluemountains. I would recommend going there for a full meal but for a quick visit it’s awesome. If you’ve enjoyed this post please share it! Sharing makes my day!

Big Banana, Coffs Harbour

The Big Banana No visit to Coffs Harbour can be undertaken without visiting the Big Banana.   It is not just one of Australia’s Big Icons.

Kragga Kamma Game Park

KRAGGA KAMMA GAME PARK WITH KIDS Kragga Kamma Game Park is a great way for your little ones to see animals. The animals are in a natural environment and seem to be well cared for. I was sceptical but it seems like everything is above board! There is lots for the kids to see and […]

Redberry Farm, George, South Africa

The Clog Barn, my favourite family activity in Coffs Harbour

Saying goodbye

Tree House Play Center, Port Elizabeth, South Africa

The Tree House, PE While compiling a post on what to do in PE and surrounds with kids I came across Tree House Kids Fun Centre. I wasn’t sure what to expect as I thought it was maybe just a jungle gym in the Bloomingdales Nursery. What I found was a lovely little play space […]

Rene’s Pizza Place, Katoomba (Blue Mountains)

Pizza in the Blue Mountains   Rene’s Pizza Place is hands down my favorite place to eat dinner in Katoomba.   It’s completely relaxed but serves the most delicious pizzas. The warm and friendly environment is hidden behind a understated shop front. The restaurant front encompasses the pizza making kitchen that never seems to stop. I […]
