| Gourmet Escape Weekend |
Food and travel go hand in hand right? So when the team from Western Australia asked me to fly over to Margaret River for the Gourmet Escape Weekend I was all over it. Then I found out that the amazing @jewelszee would be joining me and the adventure just got a whole lot more exciting 😁😁😁
Our adventure began on Rottnest Island where we hired bikes and went exploring, mostly looking for the perfect Quokka selfie 😂😂 Rottnest is full of exciting things to do including: hiking, snorkeling, cycling, fishing, surfing and just relaxing. *Quokka’s are cute little marsupial’s that have made the island even more famous than it was.

Trying to get a selfie with one of these little cute animals is waaaaaaay harder than we first thought, we even tried to get the quokka to take a shot of us 😂😂😂 Jewels and I spend a lot of time rolling around in the dirty and leaves before we managed to get 1 photo.
Gourmet Escape Weekend official opening party.
Our first Gourmet Escape dinner was set on Castle Rocks Beach. Tonight we were treated to an amazing beach BBQ cooked by world famous chef Curtis Stone
Not only did we eat and drink for the week but we also done some very cool activities, one of which was a section of the Cape to Cape walk with Saul from Cape to Cape Explorer Tours
How beautiful is this place? It is known as The Aquarium and is well worth a little dip on the Cape to Cape walk.
After all the hard work (🙊 eating, drinking wine and making photos) Jewels and I headed to the beautiful BondiJ spa at Injidup Spa Retreat for a relaxing massage 🤭
Our second Gourmet Escape Experience was held at Leeuwin Estate Vineyard. 🍷🍷🍷 Set amongst the forest was an amazing old barn that had been transformed into a magical Feast in the Forest. 🍷🍷🍷 Tonight’s dinner was prepared by Duncan Welgemoed who is one of Australia’s most sort after chefs. 🍷🍷🍷

The best way to see this amazing coastline is to get yourself on a scenic helicopter flight with the team at www.scenichelicopters.com.au
All the food...
And then there was all the delicious food. Margaret River is a serious foodie haven, there are so so many delicious restaurants, cafes & vineyards. Luckily we always travel with our camera equipment on our backs, it’s good for a bit of cardio after all the food 😂😂😂
Next stop.... LAKE CAVE There are so many caves to explore but this cave was by far my favourite.
