Kegel Bowling Fun – Hamilton Island Bowling Alley

Kegel Bowling Fun – Hamilton Island Bowling Alley

It seems that every school holidays has a birthday party at our house and these holidays were no exception. Instead of another epic water-bomb fight, we elected to take a group of boys to Kegel Bowling. So there we were, with a dozen lads, a Minecraft themed birthday cake, and slushies on tap. Heaven for [...]

Annie Oakley, hang up your gun! We had a show-down at Hamilton Island shooting range on Saturday and guess who came out on top? We had a fantastic time at Target Sports in Palm Valley, shooting with a .22 rifle and a .22 handgun. I was surprised by how much fun it was actually. I [...]
