Spotlight on- Saltus
By Lisa Monk

We all know that life is busy and pulling us in many different directions … work, family, friends, community obligations – but what about our obligation to ourselves? We all need the chance to step away, take stock and recharge, otherwise life becomes merely an obstacle course to overcome, rather than the great adventure it is meant to be. Places like Saltus allow us to draw breath and remember what is really important, and the beauty of the surrounding countryside in the Hepburn Springs region of Victoria makes it easy to forget about pressure and deadlines. These luxury villas are set high above the Mineral Springs Reserve, with panoramic views across the valley below, and yet they are in the heart of the village itself, with easy access to the many delights and attrac...

Review - Devon Park
By Sally Hobson

Devon Park 710 Robinsons Road, Langwarrin Melbourne Victoria Close to the city but with the feeling of the bush. Overall rating? Outstanding What makes Devon Park different?

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.
