“Nature does not hurry, yet everything is accomplished.” Lao Tzu I spotted this little guy in my garden a few weeks ago. He epitomises how I’m feeling right now, going at a snails pace with my healing but still moving forward. There are always lessons to be learnt in nature and in being patient. 🍃 Have a great week. #nature#goingslow#garden#healing#snails#australia#patience#motivation

All dressed up with nowhere to go. Here’s a glimpse of my town’s wattle tree, decked out in festive cheer. If you want to be happy, accept ‘what is’ and give thanks for it. Here’s to a close knit world! ✨ #yarnbombing#nature#australia#hurstbridge#trees#gratitude

Well, hello there! This guy reminds me of an ‘a la natural’ Christmas decoration. Sometimes it’s the little things that put a smile on our face. 🦜 #nature#birds#birdsofinstagram#australia#birdsofaustralia

The weather’s warming up and I know where I’d rather be ... right here on this beach. 😎 Did you know that Australia has over 10,000 beaches ... many are blissfully uncrowded. Here’s a ‘summer fun’ memory from the South Australian Limestone coast. Wishing you sunshine and bliss wherever you are. 💦 #southaustralia#australia#beach#summer#aussie_images#allroundaustralia

“It’s a blue day.” The Blue Lake at Mount Gambier sits in the centre of an extinct volcano and in summer turns vivid blue. Another of the fascinating places you’ll pass on the #greatvicbikeride next year. And another of Australia’s natural wonders that didn’t make the list. More on my latest blog post on my website. 💙 #southaustralia#australia#allroundaustralia#lakes#nature#exploreaustralia

Ready, set and another new week begins ... Here’s the Obelisk in beautiful Robe which is the starting point for the Great Vic Bike Ride in 2019. From the Limestone Coast to the Otways and the Great Ocean Road the event in 2019 will be bigger than ever. Much like the scenery along the way. 🚴🏾‍♂️🌊 #limestonecoast#australia#gvbr#allaroundaustralia#ocean#exploreaustralia#southaustralia#visitsouthaustralia#tourism_au#obelisk

He might look whacky but this Aussie character has a very real purpose. 👍 Meet Ben Ferris, aka @ferrisgump_runn , Australia’s real life answer to Forrest Gump who we met on the #greatvicbikeride. Marathon man Ferris runs solo, without a support vehicle and raises money for charities. He’s run massive distances in thongs and is currently doing the longest gum boot run from Sydney to Melbourne, raising money for kids in remote areas. Last year, Ferris ran from Townsville, via Cairns to Darwin, 3,125km in 46 running days, and raised $7000 for the Royal Flying Doctors Service. He’s all about promoting sustainable living, renewable energy, eating healthy and putting smiles on faces along the way. His motto: “feel good”. He says “your life is a reflection of your thoughts, realise the importance of time and stay on the positive side of life.’ 🚴‍♀️ Here’s to being ourselves, spreading a bit of laughter and all the unique people we meet along the way. 😎 #greatvicbikeride#nature # #running#marathonrunner#ontheroad#northeastvictoria#australia@ferrisgump_runn

Riding from early fog into brilliant blue skies. Just a few of the 3000 plus bike riders cycling from Bright to Beechworth on day two of the #greatvicbikeride. Gorgeous scenery in a beautiful part of the state. My hand injury may have prevented me from doing the ride but I can still write the story! 🙏 Here’s to the journey and all the ups and downs along the way. 🚴🏾‍♂️🚴‍♀️ #greatvicbikeride#bicyclenetwork#cycling#northeastvictoria#visitvictoria#australia#ontheroad#mediawisemelb

Fancy a bit of glamping? Who says you need your own tent. The Grampians offers a scenic backdrop and a variety of camping options. And for those without their own setup, a spot of wonderlust glamping on the shore of Lake Fyans at @lfhp3381 is a perfect choice 💙 #grampians#lakefyans#australia#nature#aussie_images#glamping#camping#visitvictoria#thegrampians

Walking in Wonderland. Breathing in mountain air. Taking in the views. Here we were just a few weeks ago, appreciating the hike and the journey, every step of the way. But we can do that anywhere, can’t we? Happy Tuesday!⛰⛺️ #mountains#bushwalking#hiking#australia#grampians#exploreaustralia#allaroundaustralia#nature#visitvictoria
