Hills to Hawkesbury Living Magazine - - IN THIS ISSUE -

What a fort­night it has been! Man­aged to sneak away for a cou­ple of weeks on a fam­ily hol­i­day up to Cairns. What a ter­rific place.

We de­cided to have a long lay­over in Bris­bane so we could go ex­plore the CBD along South Bank. It may sound strange but I was re­ally im­pressed with both the lay­out and the smart in­vest­ment that has gone on in Bris­bane over the last few years.

Cairns was a lot of fun. We didn’t know it at the time but we had booked an amaz­ing re­sort. This was cou­pled with Scuba div­ing, snor­kel­ing, wa­ter­fall hunt­ing, canyon­ing, crocodile tours and rain­for­est walks which in­cluded a tra­di­tional wel­come to coun­try. Would rec­om­mend any­one to go. Also, spe­cial thanks to all those who kept things run­ning smoothly back at home.

As I’m sure many of you with younger kids or older grand chil­dren would be aware the HSC started last Thurs­day. To all those, in­clud­ing one of my younger sib­lings, who are tackling their ex­ams, good luck! Please re­mem­ber they are only one small part of your jour­ney. If you see a wor­ried stu­dent, re­mem­ber to chuck them a smile.

As al­ways, don’t for­get to sup­port or lo­cal shops and busi­nesses. If you need a trade or ser­vice take a look in the back. If you would like to ad­ver­tise or con­trib­ute, please con­tact Melinda on 0499 040 726 or email ad­ver­tise@hill­sto­hawkes­bury.com.au. I can also be con­tacted on 1300 616 614. Happy read­ing!
