I’m a Queensland girl at heart. I love Far North Queensland, I think there are some amazing places along the coastline as well as inland within the communities. With my indigenous heritage, this area is really special to me.

Fun fact

Vegemite and Marmite can both be described as strong and salty, but they're certainly not the same. Vegemite has a more intense flavour, which means the key to a great Vegemite on toast is a very light layer.
