DIARIES

Visiting Dallas, Texas: A Day & Night in 'The Big D'.

Until now, the only impression of Dallas I had was courtesy of the Cowboys and the short time I'd spent at Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport on my way through to Austin. It's the 'Big D', right? I'd been told that if I heard 'Everything is bigger in Texas', it's Dallas they're referring to most of the time. And in some ways, it's true.

A Day in San Antonio, Texas: Part Two - Touring the missions, visiting El Mercado and eating plates and plates of tacos.

When it comes to rich cultural history, there are few cities in America with more to offer than San Antonio, Texas. Situated less than 90 minutes drive from Austin, Texas, San Antonio used to be one of the State's best kept secrets. But now, it's one of the fastest growing cities in the USA, with the second largest population in the State of Texas, home to 1.6 million people. In part one we took you down the city's famous River Walk and to lunch at the Pearl Brewery. As we continue our journey, we discover other ways to explore the city...

The view from up top: A day in Toronto, Canada

Next week, we're heading over to the annual music festival and conference Canadian Music Week, held in the fine city of Toronto. Last month, we let you in on the best ways to get to Toronto from Australia, and now today we're taking you through a day in the fine city. What to do, where to go and who to see! It's all here...

Travel Diaries: Spending 24 Hours in the Montreal Summer

It's July. The sun is beaming down on the streets of Montreal and the city is making good on its promise of beauty. A green hill sits in the distance of a city that parades itself as three complementary identities. As a city of business, like any other, skyscrapers loom and threaten to shade you from the sun. As a city of study, the campus of McGill University - one of Canada's most well regarded - serves as a defining feature, ensuring the city caters for more than the business elite.

Spotlight on Airlie Beach, QLD: From Airlie Beach Music Festival to Whitehaven Beach

Queensland's tourism sector has quite a few natural beauties to brag about, one of which is the refreshing town of Airlie Beach which has been growing as of late, expanding to include an annual three-day music festival, an evolving dining scene, and some of the best access to all the gorgeous surrounds of the iconic Great Barrier Reef.

Spotlight on Adelaide: Ibis Adelaide, McLaren Vale, central markets, an excellent dining scene, and more

Adelaide has been described as one of the fastest rising and 'smartest' cities in the world, with an emerging presence on the global radar to further Australia as a great and diverse country to visit. There's something about the wide open spaces being only a stone's throw from the city, or the fact that you're in the centre of the country's best produce, that places Adelaide far outside of the sleepy 'city of churches' box it was once stuffed into, back when interest in the area was nowhere near as high as it is now.

The OzFest India Diaries: A journey in ten parts...

Back in November 2012, I was lucky enough to be invited along on an trip around India with The Aussie BBQ and Australian bands Sheppard, Jinja Safari, The Aston Shuffle, Karnivool and Big Scary. Not a bad list, eh? As The Aussie BBQ - and the AU - prepares to return to India in November, we revisit this content in our new section AU Abroad. A unique way to see a country to say this least, the content looks at what happened on the road, the experiences we had traversing the unique terrain for the first time and much more...

Tripp's Travels: Introducing the Hawaii Food & Wine Festival

This is the first in a series of articles sharing my favourite travel destinations featuring music, food, exotic drinks, great accommodation and wondrous attractions from around the world. I’ve spent 40 years in the music industry of the US and Australia and ten of those was managing production of major music festivals in America as well as babysitting rock, jazz, blues and R&B artists globally as their tour manager.

Spotlight on Canberra, ACT: Truffles, Markets, Museums, Hotels, and more

Most who went to primary school in Australia will vaguely remember their sixth grade trip down to the nation's capital; a trip that had the unintentional consequence of coating our perceptions of Canberra with a dull, dry colour, by focusing on the layers of Australian society which many kids just don't find engaging at such a young age. Hence, there has been a nation of kids growing up with an unfair stigma against Canberra, viewing it as some sort of a hub for Australian politics and nothing more. Those who peer a bit deeper have seen Canberra for what it is, an ever-evolving and fascinating city which not only stands as our cultural epicentre, but one which is home to some of the most exciting developments in Australia's progressive art and food scenes. Hence, my visit to the city I once wrongfully dismissed as 'boring.'
