Everyone needs a bit of adventure in their lives, even if you’re a super busy bee! No matter where you are, you can always inject a little bit of adventure into your day. A bit of sunshine is a sure way to brighten up your week!

Not convinced? Give Kate Bills a chance to prove it to you, with her gorgeous baby by her side, she travels all around the country going on adventures - big and small - as well as finding adventures in her own city.

Kate brings life and energy packed with her on every trip she documents, so it’s obvious why she is one of Australia’s up and coming influencers!

You won’t need to pack for this trip, just sit down and let Kate take you on a new adventure!

How did you get into blogging and what inspired you to start up the Adventurous Mum instagram?

I started “the_adventurous_mum” instagram page to document my adventures with my baby-girl, Lottie. My aim is to inspire other Mums to get outside, and take their little ones on adventures – big or small. My social media channels cover various beach trips, hikes in national parks, days out strawberry picking as well as various travel I’ve undertaken.


Tell us a bit more about what your social media/ blogs include...

My social media channels document both travel, and daily adventures that I’ve enjoyed with my little one since she was born. The blog itself includes tips for travelling with a baby, and useful guides such a packing lists.

Do you have any future plans for your blog in the next few years?

My blog is quite new, but I have so many plans for it. My aim is to provide travel guides on places I’ve visited, as well as product reviews such as beach tents, baby carriers etc. The aim is for my blog to become a useful resource for other adventurous Mums.

What are some affordable family activities that you recommend for summer?

My top three affordable family activities would be:
A hike in a national park, followed by a family picnic
A day at the beach
Strawberry picking

You travel a lot with your kids – what are your top 3 items that you have to take to make these trips more bearable?

I couldn’t live without the following when I travel
A great baby carrier, lots of places just aren’t suitable for prams
A great off-road pram
A lightweight travel cot

You can follow Kate at her website The Adventurous Mum and on Facebook & Instagram.
