Yearly recap: 2022 Happy New Year!


Finally getting around to doing our yearly recap! I love to look back on all our adventures and I’m always so surprised at how much we actually fit into one year.

We also use this time of year to do some family photos. This year we headed down to one of our favourite spots here in the Wairarapa, Uruti Point which is nestled in the Wairarapa coastline and only a short drive from Riversdale beach. It also makes the perfect backdrop for family photos. During Summer, you can find us here a lot, swimming or having a picnic or having lunch at our local favourite and recently opened Homewood Storeroom Cafe.

J&J Noosa

During our visit to the Gold Coast we also went up and spent some time in Noosa. Noosa is hands down my favourite place in Australia! If I had to pack my bags and move to one place tomorrow for the rest of my life, Noosa would be that place.

It’s only a three hour drive from the Gold Coast. Noosa is one of the most charming and beautiful places to visit with its long beaches, beautiful houses, an abundance of restaurants and boutiques and many surfers!

I booked us the cutest Airbnb during our stay in Noosa. Let us introduce you to The Little Red Barn!

J&J Gold Coast

Our first family holiday as a family of four! We try to make a trip to Australia each year. If you’re looking for a fun family holiday destination, look no further than the Gold Coast! With its stunning beaches and an endless list of things to do it’s a great destination for a family holiday. We also get to spend time with Jake’s sister Tez and her fiancĂ© John. We stayed, ate and did some amazing things with family and friends on this trip.

This first blog post is all about our time in the Gold Coast however, we also went up to the Sunshine Coast to Noosa which I’ll share in another blog post soon. There are so many things to do on the Gold Coast with kids that you’ll either need to stay for a few weeks or come back for many Gold Coast family holidays! Which is exactly what we do!

So pack your sunscreen and grab your hat – it’s time to explore everything the Gold Coast has to offer!
