Welcome to Wander Wonder Wonton, a NZ & Brisbane-based lifestyle and travel blog.
Exploring the world one dumpling and tropical destination at a time with a wine in hand.
Bali is debaucherous (depending on which holiday-mode you turn on) at the best of times. Add a bucks party and you may as well call game-over. At the very least for your liver. By mere accident, we ended up crashing a bucks party on my second trip to Bali this year. I...read more
My friend invited me to join her for lunch at Beirne Lane, in the Fortitude Valley Mall. I didn’t expect much, to be honest. It’s been a while since I have been in the mall and it just reminds me of being drunk and eating cheeseburgers in my early...read more
I crave pasta more than I care to admit. Thankfully for my waistline, Brisbane has been lacking in an Italian pasta joint at mid-range prices for quite some time. Ripiena in Fortitude Valley to the rescue!! Hands down some of the best pasta I have ever had in...read more
Water St Kitchen was recommended to me (thanks Jo!) to check out in Bundaberg. I stalked their Instagram page and fell down a rabbit hole, admiring their beautifully presented and paired plates! I visited for breakfast and couldn’t decide between the spanner crab on...read more
It’s about time Brisbane city had some nicer dining options if you ask me. Jumbo Thai has recently opened at the Embassy Chambers on Elizabeth Street, next to the Hilton and fulfils just that. We received a warm welcome and menu recommendations – I...read more
Fresh, healthy and quick – three things I look for when I’m on the run! Cheeky Poke provided just that. I stopped by the Cheeky Poke Bar in West End in Brisbane for a quick bite with a friend. It’s a gorgeous setting with gardens, lights in the...read more
On my last trip to Bali, I wanted to visit Ubud as I hadn’t been before and had heard wonderful things. While we were in there we hired a private driver to take us around to explore the area. One of the key stops we requested was a beautiful waterfall and the...read more
I don’t get out for brunch enough. But when I do, I do it well! Hence my visit to Little Red Providore in Brisbane’s Red Hill. I’d heard that the food here was great and seen a few Instagram posts so had added it to my list of places to visit and the...read more
I’ve been enjoying some Sparkling Sisters wine from Riversands Winery in St George, Queensland. They have recently launched their 2019 Sparkling Sisters, which is a semi-sweet sparkling, which I prefer lightly chilled and generally with an antipasto platter....read more
We visited Gilli T in the Indonesian Islands off Bali for Amanda’s 30th Birthday so it was only fitting that we stayed in an incredible villa. We arrived on Gili T from Bali mainland by ferry (it’s about 1.5 hours drive from Seminyak and a 1 hour boat ride) and the...read more
On most recent trip to New Zealand I visited Hobbiton in Matamata… again. I’ve been previously to do a tour but this time we were going for something special. We were going for a Hobbiton Feast! You read right. A feast, just how you’d imagine it. A feast-like,...read more
Farm & Co Kingscliff is a gorgeous, operational farm with a lovely cafe attached in Kingscliff. I saw a picture of friends posing with sunflowers on Instagram at the farm and immediately looked up where they were and I just happened to be in the area the next...read more
