Six week long winter escapes from Australia

After two UK winters I thought I would never complain about an Australian winter again, turns out I was wrong. There's nothing like daylight savings ending, a bit of drizzle and winter chill for one to start daydreaming about tropical climates, sunshine and holidays! Whilst we love ski holidays and visiting snowy places, we really don't enjoy the cold when there is no snow involved and so more often than not end up chasing the summer sun! There are some incredible places in Asia and the Pacific that are right on our doorstep and are perfect to visit during winter! Here are six destinations that could provide you with the perfect week long winter escape from Australia!

A Vivid Sydney Photo Diary

Vivid Sydney is an annual winter festival of light, music and ideas showcasing amazing light sculptures, creative industry forums and a cutting-edge contemporary music program. The most iconic part of Vivid is the illumination of the Sydney Opera House sails! Vivid Sydney is grown to become the largest of its kind in the world and is an event that has been on my radar for a long time. We made the trip down the Sydney on the Queen's Birthday Long Weekend and loved exploring the city whilst being dazzled by the light installations! Vivid has grown so big that this year there was over 400 music events, 260 ideas sessions and 90 light installations spread across seven locations! Our favourite aspects of the festival were seeing the Opera House lit up, experiencing the light and music show at Darling Harbour, taking part in the Vivid Light walk along the foreshore, through the lanes and backstreets of The Rocks and through the beautiful Royal Botanic Gardens.
