Getaway . . . and don't delay!

Australia, our winter is their summer, and our spring their fall. If you've been to Sydney or Melbourne and think you've seen Australia, I'd suggest rethinking it. Thing is, Australia is the 7th largest continent and spans an area the size of U.S. lower 48. If wandering this great land isn't your style, consider kicking back in Noosa or Esperance beach areas. 


Noosa is just under 2hr drive north of Brisbane.  Noosa is an Australian resort area on southern Queensland’s Sunshine Coast. Known for its heavy surf, Sunshine Beach lends cafes and boutique shopping to the beach day. A coastal trail runs north past the beaches of Noosa National Park, home to koalas around Tea Tree Bay. South of the Noosa Everglades, kayaks and sailboats dot the waters of Lake Cootharaba. Inland, find Lake MacDonald and the Noosa Botanic Gardens. So much to explore!  [left photo: view from Noosa Nat'l Park]

Esperance is a minimum 7.5hr flight west of Melbourne (always with 1 stop) and delivers long white sand beaches meeting turquoise water. This is definitely an adventure destination so don't expect to stay at the Four Seasons. That said, checking availability in late Aug'23 for Jan 9-17, 2024, accommodations were already booked in many instances. Lodging ranges from apartments and cottages onto inns/motels/hotels but this isn't a beachy resort by common standards so don't delay in making reservations. What awaits? Sweeping ocean vistas, a rugged archipelago, wetlands of international importance, plus unique flora and fauna to name a few.  [right photo: Lucky Beach]
