rockhampton on film

While moving house a few months ago I rediscovered a few disposable cameras from about 2 years ago that were expired/expiring, and this gave me an excuse to capture our trip up to Rockhampton this past Christmas & New Years almost solely on film. It was the first time we'd driven up to Rockhampton with the purpose of actually visiting and exploring the little town, as opposed to usually just passing through on our way to and from Cairns. 

Many people were confused when we told them we were spending Christmas in Rockhampton, wondering what the town had to offer apart from great steak. In addition to devouring the juiciest stone grill, we had one of the best days at the Great Keppel Islands, snorkelling, kayaking, cruising into sunset, and trying parrilla grill. A measly waterproof disposable camera from Kmart really doesn't do it justice... Throughout the week we also wandered through the botanic gardens and weekend markets in the city, hiked some easy walking tracks, explored the little beach town of Yeppoon, and dug for gemstones and thundereggs at Mt Hay.

new zealand video diary 2017

This is possibly the fastest I've ever prepared a travel video (as in, it's finally actually posted within the same month that it was filmed...). Attempted to squeeze in 10 to 15 minutes' worth of video recordings into 3 minutes and 40 seconds, so apologies in advance for the dizziness... It's quite fitting, though, considering that the whole week was a blur of super fun activities that I can't wait to post more about. Now to sort through those 500+ photos...

sydney & hunter valley video diary 2016

These past four months have been pretty hectic - I'd actually completely forgotten to make this... 

Finally, a rough little video of our road trip to Sydney and Hunter Valley in August with some family friends.

hunter valley & sydney photo diary 2016

(Photos shot on Sony NEX-5n and Nikon Df)

Only three full days in Hunter Valley and Sydney this time around, mostly spent wine tasting, cheese eating (actually, just eating in general), sightseeing and toy shopping. Considering my track record the photo diary for this trip is relatively short... I made a conscious effort to take more videos, though, so video diary hopefully coming soon!
