Shopping and Coffee in Melbourne

Melbourne is the perfect place to go if you drool at the idea of being surrounded by Australia's most exclusive designer labels, vintage shops and stylish chain stores. Wander up the famous Chapel Street or Grenville Street.

If you feel like straying beyond the high street stores, spend hours discovering Melbourne's many secret boutiques, nestled into historic lanes and archways. After a hard day finding bargains - stop for a yummy cappuccino or latte in any of the city's charming and trendy street side cafes.

Sea Views and Swimming in Sydney

While still littered with lively cafes and shops, Sydney has a more beachy and chilled out atmosphere than Melbourne. Sydney offers priceless coastal walks and relaxing look out points. Have an early morning swim and then indulge in a sunny breakfast at Bondi, Coogee or Bronte Beach.

End the day with a delicious dinner at Cockle Bay or Circular Quay, looking out onto Sydney's gorgeous harbour. Sydney definitely offers a unique fusion of carefree coastal lifestyles and sophisticated cultural opportunities.

Take the Plunge in Perth

Perth has great beaches and while its a long way across the Nullarbor and Great Australian Bight, it sure is worth the flight. If you search out a flight for mid week you're bound to find a special deal. Perth has beautiful scenery and great seafood.

Take a drive down south to Margaret River and round to Bunbury from your city apartment or holiday rental home in Perth.

Beautiful Brisbane

Brisbane is a happening city and now attracting fantastic events and wonderful exhibitions such as Picasso's collection. Brisbane is the perfect city stay for day trips. Whichever city holiday or weekend getaway you choose - remember to make it your own and take advantage of each city's unique features.

Wine and Dine in Adelaide

On the surface it may be a sleepy little town, but South Australia's capital offers a lot more excitement than may appear. By day you can enjoy parks, gardens, museums and galleries. At night, a thriving restaurant and night scene combined with a fantastic selection of regional wines makes Adelaide the ideal place to eat and drink the night away. Be sure to get a taste of the local arts scene - the Adelaide Fringe Festival is popular nationwide.
