Historic Abbotsford Convent sits on a hill by a bend in the Yarra River. On a recent trip to Melbourne, we caught one of the frequent buses which pass this historic site. We could just as easily have caught a train from Flinders Station.
Casual travel fits my style. Like the writing pantser* I am, I enjoy seeing what turns up. For me, travel can mean exploring the other side of the world, somewhere in Australia or a suburb just kilometres from home.
Yagan Square in Perth, Western Australia, sits strategically between the city centre and Northbridge, connecting the two areas. As well, it links the Perth Railway Station and the Wellington Street Bus Station.
Notre Dame Cathedral has never been one of my favourite places. Strange, then, that I felt so sad when it caught fire and burned last month.
The tiny hamlet of Greenough, four hundred kilometres north of Perth in Western Australia and twenty-four kilometres south of Geraldton, draws me like a magnet.
York in Western Australia claims its place in history because it was the first town in the State to be built inland from the coast. It is also one of the oldest towns in the State.

The Festival of Country Gardens held in November each year in Bridgetown, Western Australia should be on everyone’s travel wish-list.
Cervantes, a little fishing village on the Turquoise Coast, is one of my favourite places. It’s an easy drive, a whisker under 200 kilometres (123 miles) north of Perth in Western Australia.
