Escape to the Southern Highlands

In need of a country escape but only have a weekend up your sleeve?  Then hit the road after work on a Friday and head for the rolling hills of the Southern Highlands.  Spend the weekend discovering beautiful countryside walks, meeting local kangaroos, wine tasting at picturesque vineyards, exploring quaint little villages or just cozying up in a country cottage.  The tranquility of the hills is ready and waiting for you, and even better, it’s just a one hour drive from the city.

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.
