Places to rEDISCOVER

Remember the family holidays you went on when you were a kid?  Those exciting trips where you travelled overseas and felt like you were on the other side of the world, but you were still in Aus? We sure do and that’s why this year we’re keen to rediscover those destinations once again. 

HOBART

Jump on a plane or make a journey of it and head on over to Hobart. As a grown up you will appreciate the glorious food, modern art, abundance of history and unsurpassed natural setting so much more than you ever did as a kid! Explore Tassie’s capital city as you taste your way through the state’s best food and local drops or get back to nature and climb Mt Wellington to soak in the fresh air and take in the amazing views.

FLEURIEU PENINSULA

Deciding where to eat is isn’t easy when you’re exploring the Fleurieu Peninsula, not because of lack of choice, quite the opposite, there’s too much to choose from! From local farmers markets to world-renowned restaurants serving farm-fresh local produce to fish and chips on the beach, this foodie delight has it all! The world-famous McLaren Vale wine region is the sparkling (or shiraz, or grenache!) jewel in the Fleurieu's crown and a must visit when you’re in the region.

Roadtrip for good

So many communities had a rough start to 2020 so now that we can travel a little more why not help them get back on their feet? Grab your empty esky and help give back to these stunning nature based locations. 

KANGAROO ISLAND

Kangaroo Island lies off the mainland of SA, southwest of Adelaide. Over a third of the island is protected in nature reserves, home to native wildlife like sea lions, koalas, penguin colonies and a huge variety of birds. Western KI Caravan Park and Wildlife Reserve sits on the edge of the Wilderness Trail which covers 61kms of spectacular coastal trails, next door to the Flinders Chase National Park. The wilderness around the park is regenerating after the 2019-20 bushfires, creating its own fascinating study in nature’s wonder.

The beautiful Sapphire Coast is a jewel of the NSW far South Coast. It sparkles with stunning beaches, spectacular wilderness, great fishing, exhilarating bushwalks, delicious oysters, charming towns, and one of Australia’s best whale watching destinations, Twofold Bay. Like much of NSW the area was hit hard by the 2019 – 2020 bushfires but now as the region recovers it is crying out for tourists to experience the wonders of the picturesque coast.
