Whether winter in Australia means a snowy escape or sourcing the warmth of the sun, there’s an interstate adventure for every getaway desire.
Heading south to Tasmania where winter hits first in Australia – hire a Tassie Motor Shack and drive and live in your wheels – cruising the beautiful and almost empty bays of Tasmania stopping wherever takes your fancy. If you feel like splashing out, stay at the glorious and almost surreal looking Saffire Lodge.
If its sun you’re after, you can fly up north to always-sunny Port Douglas for a boost of the tropics and warmth – stay high end at a beautiful villa such as the Bali House – all luxury.
Or stay at the fun and colourful QT hotel – a recent addition to the Port Douglas scene – it is light and fun with splashes of yellows and reds and black and white stripes, super modern furniture and a fun tropical style bar and their famous buffets that are truly amazing – or head into town for a bucket of prawns at the Inlet or the ever popular Salsa Bar and Grill.
