Long weekend in Darwin

Lights are draped between palm trees, people are wandering past with giant cushions and we catch the smell of curry drifting in the air.  A possum scurries under a chair. The sun hasn’t yet dropped but the sky is a pastel wash of blues, pinks and orange.  We’re at the movies in Darwin’s outdoor Deckchair Cinema.

Long Weekend in Sydney

A three-day weekend in Sydney with a friend, with a pact that it would NOT be a shopping weekend. No boutiques, no shoe shops, no arcades. No, my friends, this was a girls’ weekend in Sydney to relax, to live like a local.  You heard me – we were going to Sydney to chill.  Here’s how we managed.
