The scent of summer is in the air and what better chariot for exploring our own far reaching backyard than a vintage caravan named Vonnie! And, who better to team up with to transform a vintage belle than, self-confessed, caravan geeks, the Block’s alumni, Michael and Carlene!

Vonnie had good bones but was in need of A LOT of work. With laminate cupboards and kitchen tops straight from the 60’s & an exterior of the verge of rusting…this called for a complete renovation with the addition of some new furniture to bring the old gal back to life.

Luckily, our speciality paints were on hand to help…

A spray of paint goes a long way for this vintage belle!

Travel is not just about the sights that you see, but so much more… ↓ INSTAGRAM ↓ @THELOVEASSEMBLY

Dreaming up three short films for our latest collaboration with Cathay Pacific Airways to encapsulate the unique scents of Hong Kong, and be transported right back to these special corners of the city.

Instead of travelling behind the lens as a photographer, I discovered a new way of capturing these memories through the sense of smell: the number one sense closest linked to memory.

🏮 First up: The earthy scent of Hong Kong temples. 🇭🇰

I know just the place: Cathy Gatley, Mon Repos Conservation Park, Bundaberg

Bundaberg is just the place between November and March to witness a miracle that takes place nightly on the shores of Mon Repos beach. It is the place where over 50% of the entire concentration of nesting Loggerhead turtles in the Southern Hemisphere comes to lay their eggs. These mumma turtles were born here as long as 80 years ago, hatched from a nest with roughly 100 siblings and made a scramble for the ocean. They survived the 1 in 1000 odds of surviving to maturity and now they use the Earth’s magnetic field as an internal GPS to find their way back home and repeat the cycle.

Visit the turtles in Bundaberg on the Southern Great Barrier Reef:

Ranger guided encounters operate seven nights a week from 7pm from November to late March
*Nesting Turtles can be viewed after dark from Nov to Jan.
*Turtle hatchlings can be viewed at night from Jan to March.
