My Top 10 Hostels in Sydney in 2019

Updated: 1/9/2019 | January 9th, 2019 Hostels in Sydney are expensive. Since I started visiting the city, I’ve seen hostel prices skyrocket as just the cost of living in Australia has gone up. Even when you factor in the favorable exchange rate right now, it’s just expensive to get a bed here, especially at some of the larger, more upscale hostels. However, with a little planning, you can make sure you’re getting the most bang for your buck. The cheapest hostels in Sydney are found in the K...

Coral Bay: My Beach Paradise

Updated: 10/30/2018 | October 30th, 2018 We all have our own version of The Beach — that spot in the world where all is perfect and all is paradise. I found my version back in 2007. It’s a small town in Western Australia called Coral Bay. It’s a one-road town with one bar, one supermarket, three restaurants, and three hotels. This is a small town. There’s not much to do. And that’s why I love it. Coral Bay is my paradise. From the first time, I visited, I fell in love with this idyllic little b...

Updated: 10/28/2018 | October 28th, 2018 The first time I was in Sydney (all the way back in 2007), I spent most of my days sitting in the botanical gardens, reading a book and looking at the Opera House and Harbour Bridge.

Over the years, I’ve been to the city a handful of times, exploring it more and more and getting a local taste through all my wonderful friends there. I’ve been everywhere...

World Bank launches first bond instrument built on a blockchain with the Australian Bank

The World Bank has launched the first bond on a blockchain with the Commowealth Bank of Australia. The A$110 million ($87 million) bond-i (blockchain operated new debt instrument) — so named, I’m assuming, because of Australia’s famed Bondi Beach (bankers have the funnies!) — is the first bond to be created, allocated, transferred and managed using distributed ledger technology. The investment is one small step for Australian finance and one giant leap for blockchains in the world (or not). Inve...

In Sydney, a Modern Indoor/Outdoor Barn for a Landscape Architect and Family

A few weeks back, we featured landscape architect William Dangar‘s own residential landscape in Sydney’s Bondi Beach on Gardenista (see Downsizing a House to Expand the Garden: At Home with Landscape Architect William Dangar); you asked to see the interiors, and we’re happy to oblige. As a landscape designer, Dangar’s priority was the garden; after demolishing an unsalvageable bungalow he had purchased with his wife, Julia, the couple opted to shrink the footprint of the house to make more room ...

Ten Reasons to Visit Australia

Australia is one of the most remote countries in the world and, ironically, one of the most popular places to visit, especially among backpackers and budget travelers. Because of its distance from the US, not many Americans tend to visit Australia. The flights are long and expensive, and when you only have a few weeks of travel, wasting a few days flying probably doesn’t make sense to a lot of travelers. Nevertheless, here are a few reasons to save up your vacation time and brave that long vent...

Australia Wants To Save The World. Will We Let It?

Before you talk about Australia, it's important to first reflect on what it fundamentally is, in the simplest terms: a massive Western country colonized by the British, the original home of an indigenous people later utilized as a penal colony, a 7.692 million-square-kilometer island sat smack dab in the middle of the Indian Ocean. The nearest countries outside its limits are Indonesia and Papua New Guinea to the north; swing southeast and you'll hit New Zealand, with Madagascar way off to the ...
