Originally from Hamburg, Germany, Ulrike Lemmin-Woolfrey has lived in six countries and on three continents, including Germany, the United Kingdom, Qatar, Oman, and the United Arab Emirates. When her husband relocated to Melbourne, Ulrike found herself packing her bags and heading to the “land down under.” Since then, she has made it her mission to see and experience as much as possible of her newly adopted country.
With a bachelor’s degree in marine biology and a passion for scuba diving, Ulrike loves exploring the Great Barrier Reef and the Queensland coast. Her favorite experiences in Queensland include diving off Heron Island and cuddling a koala. In Sydney, she enjoys immersing herself in the history of the old beautiful buildings, and walking the magical Bondi to Coogee coastal path. She has also been known to sit in the Taronga Zoo’s petting area to get some one-on-one time with the cuddly critters.
