North Western Australia is home to the Kimberley coast, a region with a stunning landscape which includes rugged mountains, majestic waterfalls, and spectacular gorges. True North Adventure Cruises use ships designed to take visitors places other ships cannot navigate. The luxurious adventure cruise ship takes guests through the shallow river systems to bring them incredible fishing and hiking experiences. Visit the ancient rock art of the Australian Aborigines in a natural setting, not a museum. Go on a helicopter ride to get a bird’s eye view of the region. Rates per person range from $21,995 to $29,995 depending on cabin class selected.
For those who seek a serene getaway or for foodies who want to experience the finest dining, Lake House Daylesford is an excellent choice. The property offers ample experiences and activities for all guests to enjoy as they unwind and enjoy the outdoors.
There’s a rhythm to life at our house on the lake – a sequence of ongoing daily rituals…
Bread is rolled, fresh flowers are arranged, coffee is ground, tables are set. Mountains of fresh produce come through the kitchen doors, borne by proud suppliers. Cooks butcher, peel and chop. The rhythm continues on through the day and into the evening, with the soft murmur of guests and the clink of glasses. Final lights out offers a mere few hours respite before the bakers return and the rhythm resumes once again. – Alla Wolf-Tasker AM Culinary Director
