By Penny Parsons

1 Canobla Avenue Glen Davis NSW This grand and historic hotel is set in Australia’s equivalent to the Grand Canyon – a region of amazing escarpments and natural wonders.

Review - Milton Country Cottages

The Southern Highlands - access all areas!
By Bruce Mumford

The beautiful Southern Highlands region lies to the southwest of Sydney on top of the escarpment overlooking the South Coast.  The region enjoys four distinct seasons and stunning scenery ranging from native wilderness to cool misty pastures reminiscent of England, to hidden valleys with remarkable waterfalls.  All this and only 2 hours away from Sydney!

There’s a wide range of accommodation - everything from farmstays to motels, and antique and book shops that entice you in - with enou... Read more

Active seniors, action-packed holidays
By Penny Parsons

Need to get away but want to make sure the access, activities, attractions and facilities where you are going meet your needs? Not to mention finding a great deal!   Reports that we are all living longer and most of us are getting about more freely than our parents could at our age (yippee!). The great news is that we are taking advantage of our good health and traveling more, and for longer. For some of us this is thanks to a financial boost from our compulsory superannuation funds. Better health and more money give us the flexibility to keep on having fun and lets hope it stays that way!   According to the National Visitor Survey conducted by the Bureau of Tourism Research, “The increase mobility and longevity of senior Australians and the financial boost of pay-outs ...
