About Dayna J
Lives in Adelaide, Australia
Since Jun 2014
25-34 year old female
Born and raised in the Australian country, then later moving and living in Melbourne, Perth and Adelaide, I enjoy travelling both to remote and populated locations. For me travelling is about discovering new places, cuisines and cultures. I love being immersed into the local life particularly when it comes to food. I enjoy exploring the cuisines at markets and cafes/restaurants that only the locals go to. Although I prefer the warmer climates so that I can enjoy the sunshine on a beach, I don't mind putting many layers on to explore the local sights and enjoy snuggling up in front of a warm fire.

High Park is a mix of both recreational and natural parkland that spans 160 hectares. Across its beautiful landscape you will find many hiking trails, greenhouses, a zoo, and a lake, as well as numerous facilities including sports courts, playgrounds, and picnic areas. There's more than enough on offer to spend at least half a day here. Be on the lookout for squirrels, too!
Spend some time exploring Riverdale Farm, which plays host to a variety of rare breed animals and exotic birds. Riverdale Farm is located in Cabbagetown which is a suburb about 3 km from the center of Toronto. Along with farm animals, there are beautiful butterfly, vegetable, and flower gardens to take a walk through.
A visit to Toronto would not be complete without taking some time to soak up the magnificent view over Lake Ontario. The best views can be enjoyed from Woodbine Beach, Toronto Island Park, or from a boat on the lake.
Toronto Island Park is a treat for anyone. After taking the short ferry ride over from Toronto, you'll be greeted with fabulous views back over Lake Ontario, with the city of Toronto as a backdrop. Spend the day simply walking around the beautiful island grounds, or explore the amusement park or farm.
Close to the city center, just at the end of Lower Jarvis Street, is Canada's Sugar Beach. This beach has everything you may wish to find at a city beach, including a tree-lined promenade, an urban beach area, and a plaza space. Plus, there is plenty of shade offered by the beach umbrellas, as well as nearby trees.
If you want to get active on Lake Ontario, I recommend hopping on a stand up paddle board! Paddleboard Addict offers classes, tours, and rental of paddle boards, with options suitable for all levels of experience. There's no time like the present!
Situated in the picturesque Rouge Valley, Toronto Zoo is home to more than 5,000 animals, and is sure to keep the whole family occupied for anything from an hour to an entire day! There are over 500 species to learn more about, so be sure to arrive early!
Get your adrenaline pumping with the Edge Walk at the CN Tower! You'll take a death-defying walk outside, around the 550 meter-high building, and enjoy the greatest panoramic views of Toronto as you go!
The Distillery Historic District is crammed full of beautiful old buildings that you can admire as you enjoy a leisurely, open-air stroll. This district is also the premier arts, entertainment, and culture destination in Toronto, so be sure to pop into any shops or restaurants that catch your eye as you wander.
Before you head out on your outdoor adventure in Toronto, assemble your very own picnic from the huge range of tasty goodies sold by local farmers and producers at St. Lawrence Market. The market has tons of food options to choose from, including fruits, vegetables, bread and baked goods, cheese, and meat.
