Our Top 5 Holiday Destinations Right Here at Home

12 Aug 2022

There’s no need to hop on a long flight to an international destination for the holidays when we have the most stunning places right here at home in Australia! With such a large country, there are hundreds of amazing spots to check out in every state, so we’ve rounded up our top five favourite holiday destinations here that are a must-visit for your next getaway. Read on below to find out…

1. Byron Bay, NSW

One of our absolute favourites, Byron Bay is the gem of coastal New South Wales. We love the laid-back atmosphere in Byron, but there are so many fun destinations to visit around the area other than the gorgeous beaches! The beautiful hinterland villages of Bangalow, Newrybar, Mullumbimby, and Federal all have their own unique quirks which make them a must to visit. Byron Bay is busy year-round and there are some great festivals including Splendour in the Grass, Bluesfest and Falls Festival. Of course, the beaches are the star attraction to Byron Bay with their creamy white sand, glassy turquoise barrels, and palm trees. We recommend staying at Barefoot Escapes, of course!

2. Noosa, QLD

Noosa Heads is a great stylish and sophisticated holiday getaway destination on the Sunshine Coast in southeast Queensland. The subtropical climate and gorgeous beaches are some of the best reasons to make this one of the top holiday destinations. The beaches are excellent, but the shopping and boating are equally as good. If you love beachfront accommodation, this one is for you.

3. Rottnest Island, WA

Just 19 km off the coast of Perth City, lies the sunny holiday island of Rottnest. We love this area for its relaxed, casual ambiance with incredible marine life, beaches, and bays! Bikes are a fun way to get around the island since its only 11km long. Water activities are a huge part of daily life on the island, so if you’re in for a holiday filled with fishing, diving, snorkeling, boating, sailing, swimming and more, then this is the place to be.

4. Hobart, TAS

Hobart has been a long-standing favourite holiday destination of ours purely for its blend of heritage, scenery, and culture, with numerous activities and attractions nearby. There are many award-winning restaurants, modern architecture, theatres, craft shops, and galleries to name a few. We love to explore the Salamanca Market, one of Australia’s best outdoor markets, as well as the Taste of Tasmania, Australia’s biggest and longest-running food and wine festival in Hobart. We recommend staying at Pump House Point, a Lake St. Clair accommodation in the heart of the wilderness.

5. Portsea, VIC

The small village of Portsea on the Mornington Peninsula will take your breath away. It’s a great destination to walk or cycle the Mornington Peninsula National Park. There are great long stretches of sand and surf with some spectacular views along the coast from the walking trails. It's only one hour and forty-minute drive south of Melbourne makes this a must for your next holiday! Make sure to stay at the picturesque Portsea Hotel.

What is Lorem Ipsum? Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry's standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum. Why do we use it? It is a long established fact that a reader will be distracted by the readable content of a page when looking at its layout. The point of using Lorem Ipsum is that it has a more-or-less normal distribution of letters, as opposed to using 'Content here, content here', making it look like readable English. Many desktop publishing packages and web page editors now use Lorem Ipsum as their default model text, and a search for 'lorem ipsum' will uncover many web sites still in their infancy. Various versions have evolved over the years, sometimes by accident, sometimes on purpose (injected humour and the like).
