SMITHS BEACH RESORT, YALLINGUP Part of the Small Luxury Hotels of theWorld portfolio and a stone’s throw from the wineries and restaurants of the Margaret River region, this beach retreat overlooking the Indian Ocean near Yallingup is the stuff weekends are made of.The architecturally award-winning resort sits lightly on the landscape between Cape Naturaliste and Cape Leeuwin and there is luxury here in the flexibility of offering, too: with everything from apartments to villas to beach houses to stylish and pocket-friendly beach shacks, all decked out in a palette of beachy tones.

western australia best for... coast

WESTERN AUSTRALIA HAS the longest coastline of any state or territory in Australia, running ribbon-like for more than 20,000 kilometres around a great chunk of the country – so it’s no surprise it wins our vote here. And what’s even more remarkable is the sheer diversity of landscapes found along these shores, bounded by the Indian Ocean to the north and west, and the Southern Ocean to the south. At one extreme is the KIMBERLEY, where you’ll find yourself intoxicated by red pindan dirt offset by sparkling turquoise water, and at the other, ESPERANCE, where that same elemental blue bounces off some of the whitest sand you’ll find on the planet. And then there’s everything in between. See the sun set over the ocean on iconic CABLE BEACH (1) in the coastal…

PIERMONT RETREAT, SWANSEA Sitting on the east coast looking out to Great Oyster Bay, Piermont Retreat is a haven of style and substance, with 15 sustainably built stone and wood cottages scattered throughout the existing she-oaks and gum trees, all anchored by the 180-year-old homestead that houses the property’s casually elegant restaurant. Inside, the one-, two- and three-bedroom cottages come with log fires, spa baths and full kitchens, while outside there are two private beaches, a pool, tennis courts and a great swathe of pristineTasmanian nature to experience including the nearby Freycinet National Park. piermont.com.au SCAMANDER SANCTUARY HOLIDAY PARK, SCAMANDER This delightfully situated holiday park , located next to a peaceful nature reserve in the seaside town of Scamander, has glamping to suit all comers, from cosy, couple-friendly bell tents to two- and…

town and country

RABBITS SCATTER-BOLT throughout the misty garden when I close Wandering Trout’s side-entrance door behind me. A few steps and I’m on Mole Creek’s main drag where streetlights are still on even though it’s light enough to see without them. There’s nobody else around except a lone truck driver passing by with a load of felled trees that may have started life well before the name Tasmania was ever spoken here. I arrived late yesterday afternoon from Launceston, rejecting the highway for a more inefficient scenic route between blackberry-lined paddocks of red soil while the sinking sun made silhouettes of the surrounding outcrops of kooparoona niara/Great Western Tiers. This northern part of Tasmania’s Central Highlands has recently been rebranded the Heartlands, with signs and everything. Yet, no matter how you reframe it,…

ultimate weekend breaks

KANGAROO ISLAND Australia’s third largest island is SA’s natural playground, accessible via a 30-minute flight from Adelaide or 45-minute SeaLink ferry ride from Cape Jervis. It’s all about indulging in both locally produced food, wine and craft spirits, and unfiltered nature: from sea lions basking in the sun surveying the wild Southern Ocean and a rugged coastline studded with beautiful beaches to the wilderness of Flinders Chase National Park coming back to life after the 2019/20 bushfires. Plan a long weekend at least to get a taste of what the island has to offer. ADELAIDE HILLS Just beyond city limits and offering a countryside idyll studded with heritage architecture and contemporary interventions, the pull of the Adelaide Hills for weekending Adelaidians is strong. A choose-your-own-adventure kinda place, it offers up everything from the…

“WE’RE ALMOST IN THE OUTBACK NOW,” Geoff Scholz announces as we bounce along an undulating dirt road flanked by fields of low crops. It’s 30 kilometres since we passed Wudinna, the last town of any size on the northern Eyre Peninsula, and I’m struggling to figure out what’s changed. “Right... here,” he says triumphantly, easing his foot off the accelerator at the top of a small a rise. “Now you’ve got the outback on your right and the inside country on your left.” It’s a strangely specific spot, but he points to a nearby sign to bolster his claim. Glancing over, I see it reads ‘Out Of Districts’. It’s one of hundreds of markers along Goyder’s Line, a gently curving doodle that meanders lazily across South Australian maps describing the land…
