Travel guide Western Australia for Wedding venue


Destination wedding etiquette
By Kylie Jane Degeling

If the idea of running along the beach barefoot with your wedding gown streaming behind you sounds more tempting than walking down the aisle of a church or registry for your big day, you’re not alone. More and more couples are opting to seek out exciting destinations for their ceremonies rather than have their weddings closer to home. Australia is one of the most spectacular and diverse countries in the world to hold a destination wedding. You could choose to tie the knot on top of a hill in the Snowy Mountains. You might decide to say your vows on a sailboat while drifting around the Whitsunday Islands.

Spotlight on- Yelverton Brook Eco Spa Retreat & Conservation Sanctuary
By Lisa Monk

Western Australia is special and very different to the other states of Australia. It has a marvellous climate, beautiful white sand beaches washed by the amazingly clear waters of the Indian Ocean and a variety of landscapes, which offer something for everyone. The region of Margaret River is a stand out in a state full of stand out attractions and seems to have more than its fair share of bounty … world-class wines, an ever growing gourmet food industry, incredible beaches, karri forests, wildlife and Yelverton Brook. This property is really something quite special, with its eco-friendly materials, such as rubberwood and other timbers, stone and solar dried mudbricks, wool insulation and other thoughtful design features that flatter, rather than harm our environment.

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.
