Mummy's Miracles

I blog about being a Mummy to two little Miracles and the fun we have along the way. I also try to be informative about "Mummy stuff" so as to create a little space where you can read, chat, learn...

What's a great destination for a family vacation in Australia?

I have to say the Gold Coast. I grew up next to the golden sands of these glorious beaches and feel privileged to see my girls doing the same thing now. There are so many beautiful places to explore, whether it be at the beach or a rain forrest setting, the Gold Coast has it all. Theme Parks, National Parks, hideaways, getaways. Glorious sun filled days. And you don't need to spend a fortune, all you need is a blanket and a picnic and you can sit by the sea and enjoy the view while you eat.

What's the biggest misconception people have about raising a family in Australia?

Hmmm, that we have kangaroos as pets. In saying that however, my Mum did have a kangaroo when she was a youngster and I had a Galah :) And we certainly don't walk around in cork hats saying that we're going to throw a shrimp on the barbie.

What outdoor activity do you enjoy doing most with your kids?

It has to be going to the beach. Swimming, flying kites, building sand castles, wandering along the beach finding "treasures" So many opportunities to explore and play and exercise. Even in Winter we still rug up and head out for some fresh air and play time. (Minus the swim of course Brrrr).
