“My life is chaotic, but I wouldn’t have it any other way.” – Ivanka Trump
The trick to achieving all your new year’s resolutions is to kick start them in December. It takes around 21 days to form a new habit, so by the time new year comes around, you will be on your way to achieving everything you put your mind to. Before I talk about my new year’s resolutions, I would like to share with you how I celebrated Christmas.
So how did I celebrate Christmas? I decided to not go overseas this Christmas and explore Greater Victoria instead. Victoria is a beautiful place revealing secrets and treasures of nature at every step. Each step forward is unforgettable. There are places in Victoria where you will feel a million miles away from the world you left behind. Cliff top views, lush fern gullies and isolated beaches await you. It is nature’s drama unfolding at every step.
Castlemaine is a former gold mining town, located between the cities of Ballarat and Bendigo and situated in a valley at the junction of three creeks. Years after prosperous gold mining days passed, Castlemaine established itself as a town with a thriving agricultural, arts and tourism industry. Castlemaine’s historic streetscapes are a reminder of its immensely rich gold mining days.
The town of Maldon is located in a historical gold mining region between the larger centres of Castlemaine and Bendigo. By visiting Maldon, you can experience what life was like during the gold rush era. Wander past old weatherboard homes, solid stone buildings and decorative shop fronts in this lovingly preserved Australian gold mining town. Maldon has been perfectly preserved since its mining days and is Australia’s First Notable Town – classified by the National Trust in 1966.
Mt Baw Baw
Mt Baw Baw is surrounded by pristine national parks and stunning Alpine landscapes. Summer in Baw Baw is a great opportunity to escape the City and enjoy all that the great outdoors has to offer. From mountain walks and biking trails to fishing and camping adventures, summer is a great time to take advantage of Baw Baw’s stunning scenery, sunshine and clean air. Mt Baw Baw is an easy 2hour 45minute drive from Melbourne.
Noojee Trestle Bridge
Noojee is a small town located just under 50 kilometres west of the Baw Baw Alpine Village. Noojee is a place of great natural beauty, surrounded by dense mountain forests and rolling green hills. These days, Noojee is very much a tourist town, particularly as it lies on the main access route to the ski fields of Mount Baw Baw.
Noojee – Toorongo Falls Reserve
The circular walking track at Toorongo Falls Reserve takes in both the Toorongo and Amphitheatre Falls with spectacular viewing platforms. Located 4km east of Noojee on the Toorongo Falls Rd, the reserve has two walking options for those who wish to explore. You can take the direct track to the Toorongo Falls observation platform and return the same way, or follow the loop walk, which takes in the natural Amphitheatre Falls, the riverine environment of the Toorongo River and the Toorongo Falls.
With stunning landscapes, fresh air, quaint village communities and four distinct seasons, the Greater Victoria offers a refreshing weekend escape promising a diversity of food, cultural and nature based experiences.
With 2014 coming to an end, what better way to celebrate the new year by….
As the year 2014 draws to a close, the time has come to reflect on the year behind us and look forward to what the future holds. Welcome to a fresh new year everyone! This year I’ve decided to just stick to one resolution, and that is to achieve work life balance. When the school term resumes for the year, I usually get an average 5-6hours sleep a night.

Question: What motivates me to take on new challenges and continually seek self improvement?
My answer: From the public’s perspective I am ready to take on the world, and this is what pushes me forward and to continually improve. It is what the public believes I can do that I think I cannot do. In the end, we are our own worst critic.
