Take a trip to sunny Townsville Jump into summer and the spirit of Australia’s surf life saving clubs Find out what makes the perfect holiday home HERE AT AUSTRALIAN TRAVELLER we are in the business of showing people that Australia is a dynamic, fascinating place to explore 365 days of the year.

RICE POPS Merivale’s busy year of relaunches and pop-ups continues with its collaboration with the team responsible for east Sydney eatery ACME (Mitch Orr, Cam Fairbairn and Sophia Thach, pictured); Kingdom of Rice will serve up Cambodian street food out of the former drive-thru at the Tennyson Hotel for a six-month spell. Exploring the intricate flavours of Khmer cuisine, the menu will feature share dishes cooked over charcoal or tossed in a wok in a setting inspired by the Southeast Asian nation’s capital of Phnom Penh, all mismatched furniture and communal tables.
