Whoa, Mamma!

One mother's journey going from Woe to Whoa!
Mamma to 3 cheeky minxes, an 'aspiring' domestic goddess likes it kitschy in the kitchen, adores all things retro, and can't stop dreaming about the sexy dimple in Cary Grant's chin!

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

Anywhere that has a beach! We are so blessed in Australia to be surrounded by some of the world's most beautiful and inspiring natural wonders. A popular holiday destination for tourists and Australians is Queensland boasting beautiful beaches, tropical islands, protected rainforests and fabulous amusement parks.

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

That we keep kangaroos as pets? I'm not really sure what people outside Australia think life is like here. I would say that Australia is a land of great work and educational opportunities. Family well being is a main focus and having a healthy work/family/social balance.

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

Picnicking at the park! We're very lucky where we live. We're inner city but also within walking distance to the beach, the lake and we're surrounded by parks. We love to get out in the sunshine and play on the swings, have an icecream by the beach and do cartwheels in the park.
