Blue Lagoon Cruises

Berowra Waters Inn

It’s a pinch-yourself moment when you’re lying on a sparkling white sandy beach, with an endless horizon of azure blue water, sipping on a cocktail served in a coconut shell… When all of a sudden your dreamy thoughts are rudely interrupted by the sound of a deep rumbling drum-beat. 

But then you realise that’s simply the signal that lunch has been prepared by your private chef and is now laid out on a picnic table at Blue Lagoon Cruises’ exclusive island beach Nanuya Lailai!

This is the daily reality for the passengers on board the ‘Fiji Princess’ – a boutique, small cruising ship which travels through the spectacularly unpoilt Yasawa Islands North West of the Fijian mainland.

The Ultimate October Getaway

Berowra Waters Inn

In October I travelled to Cairns and the Great Barrier Reef in the state of Queensland. This is an area of outstanding natural beauty, filled with rainforests and coral reefs with a subtropical climate. The ultimate October get-away!

On arrival at Cairns airport and after check-in to the luxurious QT Port Douglas hotel we made our way to the marina and embarked on a sunset sail over the Coral Sea.

Soaking up the tropical sunset and mountain views with a complimentary glass of champagne and canapés marked the beginning of a wonderful trip.

Tamsin’s Australian self-drive adventure

Berowra Waters Inn

Having lived in Sydney for most of my childhood and adolescence, I always love to go home for extended holidays. I grew up in Berowra Waters, famed for its beautiful natural bushland landscapes that line the banks of the Hawkesbury River. It’s a great place for holidaying and enjoying seafood; the famous Berowra Waters Inn draws a lot of visitors as it’s only reachable by seaplane or boat.

My favourite part of Sydney is The Rocks, often hailed as the ‘birthplace of modern Sydney’, it has a great history with convicts, soldiers and sailors as European settlers made it their home in 1788. Nowadays it’s a thriving modern precinct with bustling markets, great bars, restaurants and shopping, and lots of tours to explore its lanes and its historic history.

Tasmania – The little, forgotten Gem

Tasmanian Devil

On my recent holiday to Australia I finally got around to flying over the Bass Strait to the stunning little island of Tasmania. Home to not just the cutest marsupial, the Tasmanian Devil but also the most amazing scenery, some of the worlds cleanest air and clearest waters... not forgetting one of my favourite... delicious providential food and wine and a new one for me... locally brewed larger.

We decided to take a week to see at least one side of the island and being lovers of nature and avid walkers we decided that the mountainous Western Tasmania was the best area to concentrate on leaving the beach East Coast to another time.  And believe you me there will be another time as we just can’t wait to return!!!
