Planning a holiday using takeabreak.com.au
Australia
By Bruce Mumford

Once upon a time, planning a holiday was both time-consuming and expensive. It could involve a lot of map reading, phone calls and visits to bookshops or the library. Doing all that research and then developing an organised system to record all your findings was a major trauma. Thanks to the internet, everything is now so much easier - and often cheaper, too. For our Great Ocean Road accommodation, I went to the local travel agency and picked up a few tourist brochures on the areas we intended to visit. These are useful to get an idea of the significant sites and tourist spots, so I can choose to include them in our itinerary – or, in some cases, avoid them.   I then worked out a route using the NRMA Trip Planner, www.drivethere.com.au, which gives you the distance betwe...

By Lisa Monk

Kangaroo Island is a wonderful environment rich in nature’s treasures and with more than its fair share of breathtaking views and things to see and do.  Vivonne Bay on the island’s south coast is one of the standouts in an island of standouts, with its long crescent shaped beach, picturesque old jetty and access to many of the main attractions, such as Seal Bay, Kelly Hill Caves and the Remarkable Rocks. Living lightly in this environment is a holiday home that truly qualifies as unique.  It is not just the rammed earth, handcrafted and earth-friendly aspects, nor is it that it La Viv is one of those rare things – a completely wheelchair accessible holiday home.  It is all these things, as well as the location and the soul of the house, which its owners ...

Safety tips for travelling in Australia
By Lisa Monk

Those of us who live in Australia grow up understanding the joys, dangers and safety rules that make it such a great place.  However, many visitors to our country find Australia an alien, but starkly beautiful country, and they have little or no understanding of the best way to stay safe and enjoy their time here. A few very simple rules can help to make a visit to Australia a safe and pleasurable experience, and Tourism Australia has a brochure available for download that lists safety tips in a variety of languages. Driving tips One of the first things to remember is that speed limits are strictly enforced in Australia, more so than in many countries overseas.  Generally, when driving in urban and suburban areas, the speed limit is between 50 and 60 kilometres per hour.

Your honeymoon – why it really should be all about you!
By Lisa Monk

  Weddings are wonderful, glorious, exciting, romantic, memorable … and fraught!  It doesn’t matter how well-organised you/your partner/your mother/your wedding planner is …no-one can deny that arranging a wedding is an exercise in endurance, as well as joy. So, the honeymoon should be the time to wind down, enjoy one another and do as much or as little as you please.  But that brings up another problem, because these days, honeymoons are nearly a competitive sport!  Where are you going, how long for, is there a spa, is it 5 star, is it eco-friendly, can your furry family come too, can your normal family come too????

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 ...
