By Lisa Monk

TakeABreak Best Places to Stay Awards 2009 National Winner Pet-friendly Accommodation: Pobblebonk B&B   The first thing you think of when you hear the name ‘Pobblebonk’ is probably frogs, not dogs – and the property is named after the Eastern Banjo Frog and the distinctive ‘bonking’ call it makes. However, it is four legged creatures of the furry persuasion who are the real winners at Pobblebonk – oh, and their owners, of course! This delightful B&B is the winner of the Pet-friendly category in the 2009 TakeABreak Best Places to Stay Awards for its outstanding dedication to ‘fur children’.   Pobblebonk B&B is a truly pet-friendly property… one that doesn’t just allow dogs, but welcomes them and caters t...

By Lisa Monk

Tucked into the sand dunes of Yorke Peninsula’s ‘shipwreck coast’ is an absolute jewel – Yondah Beach House.

Review - Castle Keep B&B at Thorngrove Manor
By Quentin Long

Glenside Lane Stirling, Adelaide Hills South Australia This amazing castle-like gothic building stands majestically on a leafy street. It feels grand, whimsical and straight out of a fairytale.

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.

The Barossa Valley
By Kylie Jane Degeling

To many throughout the world, it must seem unfair that – in addition to having beautiful beaches and scenery, a warm hospitable climate and adorable fuzzy animals with pouches, Australia also has the best wines. In any country where reds or whites are appreciated, you are bound to encounter Aussie wines proudly adorning the shelves of the best shops, or prominently listed on the menus in fine restaurants. The reason – our wines are truly special. And many of the best Australian wines call The Barossa Valley home. The Barossa Valley is made up of several small towns, villages, and hamlets, each with their own unique character and historical significance. A short drive from Adelaide, the region is approximately 40km long by 40km wide and consists of such historic towns as Betha... Read more
