Check Out This Week’s Travel Bargains.

Accor has announced that Sydney’s first 25hours Hotel is set to open at the end of 2022.

25hours Hotel Sydney will be located in the heritage building of 1-11 Oxford Street, Paddington, bringing life back to one of Sydney’s most iconic event and hospitality landmarks.

The building first opened in 1911 as the West’s Olympia Theatre and sits on one of Sydney’s best known and busiest intersections, where Oxford Street meets South Dowling Street, Victoria Street and Barcom Avenue.

25hours Hotel Sydney is situated in Oxford Street Village Centre and is well positioned for guests, in an area renowned for its diverse culture and creative scene, close to world-famous retailers, restaurants and parklands.

Eden: the summer’s peak season usually sees both Eden and Bermagui holiday parks hit around 66 per cent occupancy.

The NSW tourism industry is making fresh calls for Aussies to throw them a lifeline by holidaying on the state’s South Coast.

“We’re calling on travellers to ‘take a break, give a break’,” said Steve Edmonds, CEO of Reflections Holiday Parks whose January bookings have been slashed by up to 80 per cent at some parks.

“Our South Coast holiday parks in Eden and Bermagui are particularly hard hit. After droughts, bushfires, the first wave of COVID and the Victorian outbreak and lockdown, our park staff, nearby tourism operators and small businesses have been doing it tough.

“We urge travellers to grab their tent, or caravan, and have a last minute break.”

The summer’s peak season usually sees both Eden and Bermagui holiday parks hit around 66 per cent occupancy.

January 2020 saw the parks take a huge hit with occupancy dropping to a record low of 13 per cent thanks to last summer’s bushfires.

This January, the parks are predicted to reach 40 per cent occupancy, down 26 per cent from 2019.


Visitors to the town of Northam in West Australia’s Avon Valley will now be welcomed by a new mural displayed on the historic Northam Flour Mill.

Designed and painted by Perth-based artists Amok Island, the work celebrates Northam’s white swans and their home on the banks of the Avon River.

Built in 1867, the Northam Flour Mill is a well-loved major landmark for the town, with historical significance as a pioneer industry in the district.

The new mural is an addition to the handful already in existence, including the 38-metre-high work painted across eight CBH Group wheat silos by international artists Hense and Phlegm.

 Ithaafushi—The Private Island: the largest Maldivian private island.

Waldorf Astoria Maldives Ithaafushi has unveiled the exclusive Ithaafushi—The Private Island, the largest Maldivian private island spanning 32,000 square meters in the heart of the Indian Ocean.

The Hilton brand resort offers privacy and personalized service.

“Ithaafushi—The Private Island is the crown jewel of our luxury portfolio in Asia Pacific, limitless in the level of privacy and unrivalled hospitality guests are promised,” said Nils-Arne Schroeder, vice president, Luxury & Lifestyle, Hilton, Asia Pacific.

“Designed for the most discerning of travellers, it is the epitome of exclusivity, perfectly placed within one of the most inspirational destinations in the world where a dedicated team anticipates every need and delivers the brand’s elegant and effortless service at every turn.”


Kinosaki Onsen: a popular destination.

Why decide between snow adventure and onsen indulgence when you can have both in one place?

The Kannabe Highlands, in close vicinity to Kinosaki Onsen, is a popular destination for an abundance of outdoor activities all year round, and winter brings a myriad of seasonal activities.

After more traditional sightseeing in Kyoto and Osaka is done, visitors to Japan can ski, snowboard, sledge, and more, just three hours away in the Kannabe Highlands.

The Kannabe Highlands are a mountainous area containing the crater of the Kansai region’s youngest – but safely, extinct – volcano.

The geological features of this volcano and the mountainous area make the Kannabe Highlands a great location for various snow activities for all ages and skill levels.


 American Queen: free drinks.

To help Australians plan ahead for the return of international travel, the American Queen Steamboat Company has fast-tracked the release here of the 2022 program of its famous paddlewheeler river cruises in America – its biggest season ever.

Savings of up to US$2000 per couple are available for bookings made by March 31 through Cruise Traveller.

AQSC has also announced that drinks will be complimentary all day on future cruises.

The free drinks are in addition to the complimentary pre-cruise, one-night hotel stay, hotel-ship transfer, hop-on-hop-off shore excursions, prepaid gratuities and specialty coffees, soft drinks and bottled water that AQSC already includes in fares.

One of AQSC’s most popular cruise itineraries for Australians is its classic, seven-night paddlewheeler journey along the legendary Mississippi River between Memphis and New Orleans.  Reflecting the colourful history, culture and music of heartland America, the cruise brings to life the scenery and river life made famous by author, Mark Twain in books like ‘Huckleberry Finn’.


NOTE: Potential travellers should check the status of individual events and establishments with regard to the coronavirus outbreak.
