Muogamarra Nature Reserve – NSW’s hidden treasure chest

For only six weekends of the year, enjoy a rare and special opportunity to enter the enchanting Muogamarra Nature Reserve – a highly protected and incredible area bursting with natural treasures at every twist and turn.  Visit between 12th August and 17th September to experience this amazing place transform into an incredible array of colours as the spring wildflowers come into bloom, and enjoy the stunning views overlooking the tranquil Hawkesbury River.

Pacific Palms Paradise

Nestled in between the crystal clear calm waters of Smiths Lake, the tropical lush rainforests of Booti Booti National Park, and the Tasman Sea’s sparkling blue ocean, you’ll discover the gem that is Pacific Palms.  Whilst you could easily spend a week or two exploring the many un-spoilt beaches, sleepy coastal villages, beautiful lakes and national park sights that surround Pacific Palms, being just 3.5 hours north of Sydney it’s also very doable in a weekend.  In 48 hours we managed to cram in 6 beaches, a lighthouse, a lake, NSW’s tallest tree, and countless local coffees.  

3 nights in the magical Uluru

I’ll be the first to admit I was slightly sceptical of a trip to Uluru, immediately imagining a commercialised area heaving with tourists and selfie sticks. But upon entering Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park, my assumptions were instantly put to one side, and we embarked upon what I can only describe as a magical weekend away in what felt like a different planet.
