Review - A Rainbow’s End Bed & Breakfast
By Kylie Jane Degeling

TakeABreak Awards 2009 Winner, Hosted accommodation: A Rainbow’s End Bed & Breakfast The winner of TakeABreak’s 2009 Hosted Accommodation Award was difficult to choose because Australia is home to thousands of quaint, unique, warm, and friendly B&Bs. With so many outstanding hosted accommodation options vying for the title, the winner needed to stand out with exceptional service. A Rainbow’s End in the Adelaide Hills did just that, with many extras and special touches leaving guests feeling truly cherished. Upon arrival at A Rainbow’s End, visitors are treated to a charming afternoon tea on the patio, where they can enjoy the beautiful views of the valley. Hosts Pam and Dave go out of their way to make guests feel welcome in their home, and many rave... Read more

Touring Routes Fleurieu Peninsula and Kangaroo Island
By Tourism Australia

Some of Australia’s finest wine valleys and wildlife wonderlands are just a stone’s throw from Adelaide on the Fleurieu Peninsula. Historic architecture, fine food and a friendly welcome just add to the mood. Among the first travellers to cruise South Australia’s coast was explorers Matthew Flinders and Nicolas Baudin. Although their respective nations, England and France, were at war at the time of their encounter in 1802, the pair swapped notes before peacefully going about their business to map the southern coast of Australia. It’s thanks to Baudin that today we have the Fleurieu Peninsula (honouring French politician, Comte de Fleurieu). This route takes you from Adelaide down through the scenic Fleurieu Peninsula and across to Kangaroo Island, a haven for wildl... Read more

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.

Travelling with Teens
Australia
By Lisa Monk

We know that our teenage children can be delightful, exasperating, funny, sullen, adventurous, shy, talkative, slothful and manic – and sometimes that is just in the space of an hour!  All these moods are magnified when it comes to travelling, be it in Australia or overseas, as teens and parents are forced into one another’s company without a ‘get out of jail free’ card, such as time with friends. Travelling overseas with teenagers tends to be a better experience for a number of reasons, such as the brilliant entertainment systems now available on most flights, menus that let them eat things they like, resorts that have activities that cater for most age groups and the “wow” factor.  So let’s concentrate on surviving travelling in Austra...
