As more Australians turn to close-to-home cruising, Cruise Traveller, has released a live-it-up package for December next year when guests enjoy a luxurious Christmas-and-New-Year’s voyage from Australia’s west to east and dress-circle seats to witness Sydney’s famous fireworks.

The 17-night package begins with a free flight to Perth from Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide or Brisbane.

Guests will enjoy a free night in a five-star hotel in Perth before boarding the elegant, 710-guest boutique ship, Azamara Journey, for a festive 16-night voyage to Melbourne along Australia’s southern coastline.

Ports include the beaches and coastlines of Albany and Esperance, Adelaide, the rich wildlife of Kangaroo Island, the historic Victorian town of Portland and the scenic NSW port of Eden.

Guests will be pampered with a memorable Christmas at sea with all the trappings including Christmas dinner without any cooking or dishes to do.

Adding to the spirit will be complimentary beverages throughout the cruise.

Azamara Journey will arrive in Sydney on New Year’s Eve, 2021, for a two-night stay, enabling guests to watch the spectacular harbour fireworks from the deck of the ship docked in White Bay, Balmain.

The cruise ends in Melbourne on January 4, 2022, with flights included back to Sydney, Brisbane, Perth or Adelaide.

 Hobart’s annual design market: will feature some of Tasmania’s best emerging and established designers.

The annual design market will run December 4-6 in Hobart’s historic Town Hall and feature some of Tasmania’s best emerging and established designers.

This design market is rapidly gaining a reputation as one of Tasmania’s best market-style events for high-quality craft and design.

Organised by designed:made inc, the design market includes a wide range of work including furniture, jewellery, ceramics, glass, textiles, prints and more, with nearly 40 designers and makers present.

The event launches with drinks and nibbles on Friday night at 5pm, which will provide a great opportunity to catch up with many of the exhibitors and other designers over a glass of wine and a bite to eat.


 The Keep: plenty to see and do in the region. Image: Kingthing Marketing.

It’s a beautiful folly — a sandstone tower for two (and only two) high on a remote rocky outcrop at Goulds Country in Tasmania’s north-east.

There’s plenty to see and do in the region the Keep, but once you’ve climbed to your tower above the clouds, it’s tempting to retreat with original artworks, some of the best of Tasmanian-designed furniture and stunning views to Larapuna and Bay of Fires and beyond.

Take in the panorama from a big stone bath among the boulders, raise a glass beside the open-air fireplace, and walk in forests of myrtle beech and man ferns.


 Powerhouse Tamworth by Rydges: completes its multi-million dollar redevelopment.

Powerhouse Tamworth by Rydges completes its multi-million dollar redevelopment, unveiling a luxurious oasis and dining destination as the New England region’s only five-star hotel property.

The completion of the Tamworth redevelopment also marks the launch of 20 serviced apartments, a mix of one- and two-bedroom options and a three-bedroom villa, set up for longer stays and families or groups travelling together.

The apartments complement the property’s 61 newly refurbished rooms and suites, all with high-speed free wi-fi, 60 inch 4K smart TVs on an acoustic wave wall, wireless mobile chargers and multiple USB ports.

Features to the fit-out of each room include bespoke leather bedheads, marble bedside tables and bathrooms.

All the timber detail of each room were hewn by local craftsmen, and carpets and tiles were designed specifically for the project.


 Polynesia: postcard-perfect volcanoes, colourful coral reefs, crystal waters and myriad marine life.

It is safe to say that most of us have at some time considered visiting Tahiti with its postcard-perfect volcanoes, colourful coral reefs, crystal waters and myriad marine life.

The Polynesian islands, made famous by the Mutiny on the Bounty and immortalised by painters such as Paul Gauguin, attract visitors as much for the magic of Polynesian laid-back culture and lifestyle as the physical beauty.

Now Paul Gauguin Cruises has released the chance to discover the idyllic destination on 15 of their seven-night ‘Tahiti & The Society Islands’ departures between April and December next year — plus attaining savings of $1300 per person.

The fare includes dining, beverages, entertainment and expert lectures.


 Tombstone Territorial Park: nestled in the ‘Patagonia of the North’.

Plan your post-covid-19 hiking holiday in the Yukon.

There’s no such thing as ‘going down the wrong path’ in Canada’s north-western Yukon Territory.

There’s a trail for every ability and fitness level, where even the shortest, easiest hikes reward you with sweeping vistas of expansive rivers, glaciers and pristine alpine wilderness.

Prime hiking season in Yukon is mid-May to mid-September, when the days are long and the weather is mild. Keep in mind, many national and territorial parks require a permit.

It’s always a good idea to hike with an experienced guide who can keep you ‘on track’ and fill you in on the region’s history, topography and wildlife.


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