Where I ate and drank in Melbourne for a week


A couple of weeks ago, Dave and I were in Melbourne for 8 days while he attended a work course. As I was still working throughout the week, I took the opportunity to wander around this incredible city and explore some of my favourite cafes from which to work, while also discovering a few new places.

Dinner by Heston Blumenthal

 
A few months ago, one of my friends who lives in Melbourne posted a photo to Instagram of her lunch experience at Dinner by Heston Blumenthal, and as soon as I saw it (and asked her about her experience there), I jumped on their website and made a booking, knowing that we would be in Melbourne for a week in June.

My favourite cafes and restaurants outside of Tasmania's main cities

I have written a few blog posts on my favourite cafes and restaurants in Hobart and Launceston, however there are a number of awesome spots scattered around the outskirts of Tasmania that I have loved discovering when I have found myself outside of Tasmania's two major cities. If you are exploring Tasmania and are in search of some good food, coffee, beer or wine, then continue reading.

Cascade Brewery, Hobart

Located just a few minutes' drive south of Hobart's CBD, Cascade Brewery is Australia's oldest operating brewery, and is a beautiful spot to visit if you are looking to do some beer tasting on a brewery tour, or if you are just after somewhere to sit in the sun for lunch and a drink.

Discovering the benefits of yoga

To be completely honest, I used to think that yoga was a bit of a weak excuse for a workout. I couldn't really see why people would spend an hour or two at a time stretching and lying on the floor and feel as though they had completed a beneficial workout. However, a couple of years ago, I stumbled across Yoga with Adriene's YouTube channel and started doing some short at-home yoga workouts to get an idea of what yoga was like. After completing one of her 30-day yoga challenges, I started to understand the benefits of reducing stress, increasing flexibility and improving my mental health that come with yoga.

My favourite cafes and restaurants in Byron Bay

 
Having just spent this past week in Byron Bay, I had the opportunity to try out a range of cafes and restaurants over the five days I was there. This was my second visit to Byron Bay, my first being for my birthday last August (you can see my Byron Bay travel guide here), so there were a number of places I wanted to revisit on this trip, but there were also a few new discoveries which are worth a mention.

Where to eat and drink in Brisbane

This week I visited Brisbane for the first time, and as is the case with any new place I visit, I wanted to hunt down the best cafes and restaurants in the city. After doing a bit of research over the past few weeks, I came up with a bit of a list of places to hit up, leaving a bit of room for any spots that I stumbled across on my travels that looked interesting. If you're heading to Brisbane in the near future, or are just interested in what I ate, continue reading.
