About this blog

Daytripper Sippers, Sunday drivers yeah! 1

It’s all about the journey!

We’re not fussy foodies, coffee connoisseurs, antique or art buffs, winies or wowsers. We like a bit of all of the above.

But we really love going for lazy weekend drives in the countryside and discovering interesting places and curiosities – with a good watering hole along the way.

Getting off the main roads is a must, on the road less travelled. It’s all about the journey.

And since no one lives on damper alone, and these days you are never very far from a coffee bean, then we also find a cafe to satisfy our citified tastes.

This blog is the next best thing to driving you around in our buggy…

Once when we were considering a local village, a resident kindly drove us around to all the available blocks of land for sale, in his big whale of a car. I also want to take everyone around our latest favourite part of our country.

This blog is the next best thing to driving you around in our buggy, showing you all the great spots to love.

I love the quirks and curiosities, the history, the natural and built beauty, the traces of the community in the land. And I love to share it with everyone.

So buckle up and enjoy the ride!


The information is accurate at the time of writing. If it has changed please let me know. If you have any suggestions for day trips, or questions about anything here, also give me a yell.

Cheerios and happy trails!
CC Richards, a Daytripper Sipper

    Yep. I see the echoes for sure 🙂

  3. Where do I love to be? Almost anywhere. There are amazing things to be discovered wherever one goes. I love history and culture and nature and beauty, and one can find one or more of those just about anywhere. All that said, I’m a big fan of Australia, so I’m enjoying seeing where you’ve wandered.

    • Thanks. (Sorry I missed this comment from way back.)
      I’m a huge -phile of history, culture, nature and beauty too, Aussie and non-Aussie. I never tire of it. I love exploring new times and places. Thanks for stopping by.

  4. CC Richards, thank you for the follow its is really appreciated – welcome aboard. If you have any suggestions or requests just let me know. I like the above and in particular ‘the road less travelled’. Have a great weekend, will take a quick tour of your little home here. MM 🍀

    Thanks for stopping by blog and the interaction. I love it. I’m looking forward to the Pink Floyd challenge. Thanks for the idea. It’s great

  7. I nominated you for the One Lovely Blog Award! You can check out the rules and get the badge on my blog, but it’s a no-strings-attached-award, so you don’t have to do anything unless you want to.

    Thanks for stopping by to check out some of the “off the beaten path” places we’ve visited in Canada (and recently for a few weeks in New Zealand). An extended vacation in Australia is definitely on our list of things to do before we’re too old to enjoy travel! Blogs like yours are exactly what I look for when planning a holiday. Thanks for sharing some of the gems that we’d otherwise never know about.

    • Thanks. As fellow Geocachers, bushwalkers and outdoorsy-types I just had to follow your blog. Canada is on our bucket list – The Rockies and the Rocky Mountaineer train and Thousand Islands…

      I was born in Toronto (New South Wales), very different from its namesake but I’m going to have to go there. Cheerio, CC

    I have never traveled outside of the US (except once barely crossing into Canada) so I am looking forward to reading your posts! Thanks for the encouragement, Emily

  10. Looking forward to getting some inspiration exploring what’s in my own backyard now that I am home for a while.

How are you travelling? Say g'day!
