it’s never been easier...to take a break

F

or many, this is the time of year to wind down and take a break. For Jetstar, our busiest time starts when your holidays begin. Over the past two months, we’ve carried more than three million customers to around 80 destinations across our everexpanding network. We’ve reunited families for Christmas, taken travellers on long-awaited holidays, carried thousands across Asia to celebrate Chinese New Year, and flown sports fans around Australia to enjoy the summer of cricket. A record number of flights have operated to holiday destinations, with additional services to Bali, Thailand, Hawaii, Malaysia, Myanmar and Australian coastal hotspots. In part thanks to our low fares, it’s never been easier for families and travellers to take a break.

If you are travelling from Australia today, perhaps you booked your flight courtesy of one of our new gift cards. In recent months, more than 10,000 gift cards have been purchased to give a loved one the ‘gift of travel’. And it hasn’t taken long for people to make the most of redeeming them. With more than 22 million flights offered for under $100 last year, a Jetstar gift card can go a long way. With this in mind, each and every Jetstar employee has also been getting into the ‘gift of giving’. To celebrate the holiday season, 5000 Jetstar team members have each given away a $50 voucher to a passenger they felt was especially deserving. And we’ve heard some extraordinarily heart-warming stories at Jetstar about the impact our $50 travel vouchers have made. Are you one of those lucky 5000 people? If so, thank you for making our holiday season special. I hope you enjoy your flight with us today and we look forward to having you on board throughout 2017.

Thanks for choosing to fly with us today – it’s great to have you on board. Whether you’re heading home or away, we want to make your flight as comfortable and enjoyable as possible. We recently updated our in-flight menu to include a range of new choices for you, such as a tapas platter of cheese and olives, which you might enjoy with a glass of wine. For many years we’ve been proud to serve wine by Kooks onboard. Every purchase of a drop from the Kooks social winery helps support inspiring initiatives and community groups making positive change. It’s a good pour for a good cause. If you’re a wine aficionado, turn to our special flip book feature on the worldfamous wine industries of Australia and New Zealand. On page 62 we also take a look at Adelaide in South Australia, renowned for its own wine country and its famous Mad March festival season. We also take a look at the East Coast with the great offerings in Sydney’s food courts on page 78, and how to make the most of a trip to Perth on the West Coast on page 96. Whichever direction you’re heading in, enjoy your flight today. Dean Salter, CEO Jetstar Australia and New Zealand

10-13_EXPERIENCE_NEWS.indd 10

It began in a small café in inner-city Sydney in 1993. 25 years on, Tropfest is now the world’s largest short film festival. We spoke with founder John Polson ahead of this month’s event. How will this year’s festival be different? In some ways it will be very different – it’s a different park and a different location – but I also think those differences won’t matter. It will still be Tropfest, the way it has been for 25 years. That feeling that many people are familiar with, having come here year after year, is not something that is created by any particular venue. I think we proved that when we moved from the Tropicana Café to Rushcutters Bay to the Domain and to Centennial Park – we’ve jumped around but Tropfest itself has remained true to that feeling of excitement and encouragement of talent. It’s still a celebration of Australian filmmaking, culture and storytelling. But I’m excited about the differences – I’m excited to see who’s going to come with us and I’m excited to see the new audience we’re going to find in Parramatta.

How many entries in Tropfest will there be this year? We generally get around 600 to 800 entries, which is pretty great

What does winning a prize or being a finalist mean for a young filmmaker? It can mean a huge amount. But it partly depends on how the filmmaker embraces it. I think it’s a mistake to win at Tropfest and sit back and wait for the phone to ring. But what a Tropfest win does do is it puts you on the map and opens a lot of doors. It means agents, producers and executives will return those calls. The proof is in the pudding – there has been a pretty massive amount of strong outcomes through the event over the years, and finalists and winners have gone on to make films, TV shows and commercials around Australia and the world.

Apart from Tropfest, are there any other film festivals you love? I feel it’s almost a cliché to say it, but Sundance Film festival [in Park City, Utah, US] is a wonderful place to be. That’s a festival I feel pretty close to and I’ve been to it many times. In some ways it’s a role model for Tropfest and it’s definitely a festival I’ve had a great time at. Tropfest runs from 7-11 February culminating in the finalist film screenings on Saturday 11 February at Parramatta Park in Sydney. tropfest.com.au

BACK TO THE BEACH WORLD SURF LEAGUE CHAMPION TYLER WRIGHT LOVES COMING HOME TO THE SOUTH COAST OF NEW SOUTH WALES WORDS JUSTINE COSTIGAN

F 14

rom winning the Layne Beachley Classic at just 14 to becoming world champion at 22, Tyler Wright’s skill with a surfboard has seen her compete around the world. But when it comes to her favourite place, there’s nowhere quite like Culburra Beach, the sleepy seaside town where she was born and raised. Part of the Shoalhaven region, a string of coastal villages and lush hinterland 200km south of Sydney, Culburra Beach may be the place where acclaimed photographer Max Dupain shot his iconic ‘Sunbaker’ photograph, but for Tyler it will always be home. With dozens of beaches to choose from, including the white sands of Jervis Bay and Currarong’s curved beach and reef, the pristine Shoalhaven beats all the beaches Tyler has surfed. “Because I travel so much I have a real appreciation for it,” says Tyler. “It will always feel like home.” For a guide to surfing in the Shoalhaven visit shoalhaven. com.au/surf. See Tyler Wright compete at the Australian Open of Surfing, 25 February to 5 March, Manly Beach, Sydney

BEACHES The Shoalhaven has some of the most beautiful beaches I’ve ever seen. So when I’m back home, heading to Jervis Bay and hanging at the beach with friends and my five puppies – one Boodle and four Labradoodles – is my favourite thing to do.

BUSTED SURF CO. 156A Prince Edward Ave, Culburra Beach bustedsurfco.com My favourite surf shop in Culburra is Busted Surf Co., right in town. In Ulladulla it’s the Rip Curl store and I always drop into Ocean & Earth when I’m in Sussex Inlet.

WORDS EMILY WILSON

1. LOCAL PIZZA

Berriedale, Hobart, TAS localpizzatas.com.au If you’re all about “dat base” you can’t go past Local Pizza. Made with imported Italian flour, the thin, crisp, handstretched bases are famous among the locals who crowd the long communal tables. The tongue-in-cheek names are also worth a mention, such as the Spud Lyf (potato, bacon bits and local cheddar), Wild Thing (pork and fennel sausage with gorgonzola), or Purple Reign (tallegio, cherry tomatoes and radicchio).

2. HAPPY AS LARRY

18-19_EXPERIENCE_THE SHORTLIST.indd 18

Around Sydney, NSW happyaslarrysydney.com.au With speakers blaring and neon lights flashing, Happy As Larry brings the party with the pizza. The food truck and pop-up pizzeria serves classic Napoletana pizza with light, fluffy dough, top-quality

toppings and San Marzano tomatoes direct from Italy.

3. 400 GRADI East Brunswick, Essendon, Ringwood, Melbourne, VIC 400gradi.com.au In the quest to find a truly authentic slice, you’ll inevitably get pointed toward 400 Gradi. Chef and owner Johnny Di Francesco is the first Australian trained in Naples to Associazione Verace Pizza Napoletana standards, and made Melbourne culinary history when 400 Gradi’s thincrust, mouth-watering margherita won him Master of Margherita at the World Pizza Championship in 2014.

4. THEO AND CO PIZZERIA East Vic Park and Leederville, Perth, WA theoandcopizzeria.com.au This pizzeria is the baby of

chef Theo Kalogeracos, a man with a serious passion for pizza. His hand-kneaded dough and inventive toppings made with prime local ingredients have attracted a cult following. Order one of the indulgent dessert pizzas (toffee apple perhaps?) in all their ooey-gooey goodness for sticky fingers and a sugar high in no time.

5. CUCINA SOTTO LE STELLE Nightcliff, Darwin, NT Find them on Facebook The Seabreeze Carpark becomes an open-air Italian trattoria every Wednesday, Friday and Saturday night when Darwin’s ‘Pizza Man’ Benjamin Matthews fires up his mobile wood-fired pizza oven. With communal tables on the grass and an Esky for BYO drinks, it’s the ideal Top End setting for traditional thin-crust pizzas and fresh pasta under the open sky.

SUSHI 20

Fear not foodies, dining on seaweed, rice and fish is an international cultural evolution WORDS LARISSA DUBECKI

M

aybe it’s slightly scarier to eat spaghetti Napoli while wearing a white shirt on a first date, but to many Australians few foods are as nerve-wracking as sushi. Understandably: not only does the raw fish on lightly vinegared rice typify the elegance of Japanese cuisine, it has also become a cultural conduit for centuries of history, governed by the kind of arcane ritual that could put the Illuminati in the shade. But fear not, good people. Before you take your seat at the sushi bar, here are some rules to help you enjoy the experience without creating an international incident.

ILLUSTRATION & PHOTOGRAPHY ISTOCKPHOTO.COM

1. Hello sushi The origins of sushi can be traced back to the 8th century as a way of preserving fish in fermented rice. Later, people started eating the rice as well as the fish. The Edo sushi served in contemporary restaurants dates from the 1820s and began as street food. Don’t be intimidated next time you take a seat at a hallowed, stage-lit sushi counter. Repeat this calming mantra to yourself: street food, street food, street food.

2. Getting started It can be hard when sitting in front of a sushi master to know what to order, so give the chef a thrill and try asking for recommendations (osusume)

20-21_EXPERIENCE_HOW TO.indd 21

or for a meal based entirely on chef’s choice (omakase). Before the meal starts there will probably be tea and a wet towel (oshibori) to clean your hands, and miso soup, which should be drunk directly from the bowl.

3. Hands across the ocean So is it okay to eat sushi with your hands? The answer, is yes – and with nigiri sushi (handshaped sushi) it’s preferable to using chopsticks. Sashimi – fish minus the rice – should only be tackled with chopsticks. It’s impolite to rub disposable wooden chopsticks together as it implies they are cheap and have splinters. And make sure you use the chopstick rest (hashioki) rather than leaving them on your plate.

7

“Arigatou” 4. Steady on the soy It’s Japanese, so you put soy sauce on it, right? Noooo. Soy sauce can be the enemy of good sushi, which means soaking the sushi in soy is a sign of disrespect. If adding soy you must dip lightly, fish-side down. The rice should never come into contact with the soy as it will fall apart. Make sure you put the fish side onto your tongue.

5. The wasabi way In better sushi restaurants, a delicate amount of wasabi will have been dabbed onto the nigiri sushi by the chef (and incidentally, that “wasabi” in plastic packets is not real wasabi but typically a mix of horseradish, mustard and

food colouring). If wasabi is provided, go for it, but keep it understated. It’s not a fireeating competition.

6. One bite or two? Contrary to popular belief, it is acceptable to eat a larger piece of sushi in two bites instead of one (let’s face it: no one wants to see a diner choking at the sushi counter). The caveat is that the half-eaten sushi should not be put back on the plate – keep it in your fingers or on your chopsticks until it’s finished.

7. Say it in style Arigatou means thank you, but gochisosama deshita is a more refined way of saying “thank you for the feast”.

MILK MYLK

DAIRY ALTERNATIVES ARE GOING MAINSTREAM AS CAFÉS, BARS AND HEALTH STORES EMBRACE A PLANTBASED PHILOSOPHY WORDS SARAH GAMBONI

PHOTOGRAPHY KIK ROCCHI

JUST A FEW years ago, the lactose intolerant were left with some pretty stark choices: think long-life soy and watery rice milks. Today, plant-based “mylks” have hit the mainstream and creamy nut, coconut and oat milks are available in neighbourhood cafés and supermarkets. Green scene At Melbourne café Matcha Mylkbar, dairy-free delights include superfood lattes and smoothie bowls made with almond or coconut milk. “Our philosophy is heavily influenced by the Blue Zones – the five areas in the world where people live measurably longer than anywhere else,” says co-founder Sarah Holloway. These virtuous destinations include Okinawa in Japan, Nicoya in Costa Rica and the

22-23_EXPERIENCE_IMBIBE.indd 23

Italian island of Sardinia. “One factor they have in common is a largely plant-based diet, so we decided to avoid all animal products on our menu. “Almond and coconut are our favourites – I personally love coconut because it’s so creamy and full-bodied,” says Sarah. “For our specialty lattes, we choose different milks depending on the ingredients. For example, our turmeric lattes use coconut milk but our matcha latte uses almond milk.” Read the label Some plant-based mylks get a bad rap for having too much added sugar and not enough calcium, so it pays to read the label. MasterChef alumni Linda Monique launched Almo Milk in 2014 when she tired of the watered-down imported options on offer. “There was no

here’s a little shop on Hong Kong Island where you can buy designer soup-dumpling salt and pepper shakers. You can also buy shrimpdumpling tea towels, pork-bun aprons and other novelty homewares with a dim-sum theme. This famed Chinese

24-25_EXPERIENCE_FOOD ICON.indd 24

cuisine is as iconic as the city’s little red taxis and its antique doubledecker trams – you can’t visit Hong Kong without getting on board one of those. Australians refer to dim sum as yum cha, which translates as “drink tea” and harks back to a time when travellers on the Silk Road would rest

roadside while sipping tea. At some point physicians indicated that tea aided digestion, and small food offerings cooked in bamboo steamers became part of the deal. The Cantonese of southern China took the tradition a step further, shifting the emphasis from drinking to eating.

They introduced sweet and savoury ingredients, and used steaming and deep-frying to perfect the popular little dishes we love today – crispy spring rolls (chuen guen), steamed open-topped dumplings (siu mai), roast pork buns (char siu bao), prawn dumplings (har gao), rice noodle rolls (cheong fan); the list goes on. The heart-warming ritual of sharing the dishes around the table with friends and family earned it the name dim sum, which translates as “to touch your heart”. While dim sum touches people’s hearts all over China, Canton is still credited with having the best in the country. And Hong Kong’s status as a world city has given it that edge – you can buy dim sum for breakfast, as is tradition, and then eat it again for dinner, any day of the week. There are endless variations on

the theme, from bustling old-school trolley eateries and ma-and-pa cafés to colonial-era style a la carte restaurants and high-end luxury venues where contemporary ingredients include gold leaf, foie gras and truffle. One thing is certain: the cuisine is always eaten out. Dim sum’s bite-size portions and variety make it labour-intensive and unsuited to the city’s domestic kitchens. In fact, it’s considered hard work in restaurants too. Ingredients need to be apportioned precisely and each piece needs to be exactly the same size. It’s said that if one customer has a bigger dumpling

or more shrimp, the others will complain. Restaurants commonly have bulk dim sum made cheaply over the border in China. The best dim sum are undoubtedly made in-house (uncovering restaurants that do this well is a Hong Kong foodie pastime). You’re looking for oil-free spring rolls, sticky rice that’s glutinous and gooey, and siu mai with perfect bouncy consistency. Siu mai is the most important for Chinese people. According to one chef, “You get the siu mai right and your friends and customers will keep coming back.”

Six months • Prep your body from the inside out. Drink liquid chlorophyll in your water daily (at least eight glasses) to cleanse your gut and consequently your skin. • Begin dry body brushing every day and double its benefits with a body scrub twice weekly. • Start having regular, professional facials and have a skincare routine prescribed for home. • Visit your hairdresser to discuss the colour, cut and style you want on your big day.

• Ditto for make-up. Begin experimenting with foundation, eye and cheek hues, waterproof mascaras and lip colour. Three months • Try weekly glycolic acid peels to purge any dead skin cells and debris. • Embrace a vitamin C serum for a daily dose of glow-inducing vitamins. • Add a weekly purifying mask at home. One month • Start trialling your tan. You might want to test several before you select the shade that suits you. One week • Go for your final colour and cut, and confirm the hair appointment for your big day. Two days before • Have your tinting and waxing done. This gives everything a chance to

settle down if you plan to fake tan. • Have a manicure and pedicure, with a longwearing application that will last through your honeymoon. The night before • Have your final fake tan. • Once the tan develops, give yourself an at-home facial. Use a richer moisturiser to give skin a hydration boost, and drink lots of water. • Go to bed early. On the day • In the morning, do your normal skin routine, but use your richer moisturiser for dewy skin beneath all the primer and make-up. • Apply body oil well before getting dressed, so your skin is hydrated, but you won’t get oil on your dress. • Be pampered within an inch of your life!

WORDS PETER BARRETT

THE IDEA of delivering a speech strikes fear into the hearts of many a brave man. Fortunately, there is some great advice out there. Tony Wilson, author, public speaker and founder of speech-sharing platform speakola.com, says nailing a best-man speech is all about the balance between entertaining the crowd and being respectful of the role. “You want to be funny… but you’re not just trying to get laughs from the mistakes that your old mate has made; you’ve also got to say what he means to you.” Tony’s tried-andtested best-man speech template goes like this: start with a nervesteadying joke about your location; follow with a humorous how-we-met story about the groom; poke fun at the groom’s foibles using detailed anecdotes; relate how the groom first described his bride to be and flatter her; finally, make your congratulations and you’re done. There are many different types of speeches, of course. Eulogies, for example, are a chance to remember and celebrate a person’s life. But they are also

1. Beware too much Dutch courage. Depending on your constitution, one or two standard alcoholic drinks before you speak can be a useful nerve-calmer. Drink anymore and expect to wobble, slur and forget material. 2. Don’t do political jokes. Unless you’re speaking at a political rally, steer clear of this stuff. Weddings particularly bring diverse groups of people together so avoid putting your mate’s new father-in-law offside with an ill-timed political quip. 3. Print out your speech in 16-point type. It’s fine to read a speech but even better if you can memorise it and focus on making eye contact. Having the words in front of you in large font means you can fall back on the text to nail specific lines.

STICKS ADAM LIAW HEADS TO SINGAPORE FOR SOME SATAY INSPIRATION WORDS JUSTINE COSTIGAN

Experience I RECIPE

hen Adam Liaw makes satay, it’s always a special occasion. And not just because these spiceinfused morsels of grilled meat are delicious, but because satay isn’t a dish you make for just one or two people. “I slice up and marinate all the meat and when I have enough agreeable family members to help, we make 200-300 satay in one go. It’s easy to do when you get a rhythm going,” says Adam. There’s a few tricks to getting this deceptively simple recipe right. “Don’t use meat that’s too lean or cut the meat too small,” says Adam. “And the meat needs to have a good flavour, it’s not just about the sauce.” Adam’s favourite satay recipe (see right) is just one of many traditional Singaporean recipes featured on Destination Flavour Singapore, the latest instalment in the successful TV series exploring world cuisines. Singapore has always had a special connection for Adam. Born in Malaysia to an English Singaporean mother and a Hainanese Chinese father, Singaporean food is “what I grew up eating” says the lawyer, MasterChef winner, TV presenter and cookbook author. “This season of Destination Flavour is much more personal. We dive into my family

INGREDIENTS MAKES 50 SKEWERS

Satay Daging (Beef satay) history. My story is also the story of Singapore – told in food.” As part of the TV series, Adam explored the city’s food culture, from Hawker stalls to home cooking and five-star dining. Research included eating some of his alltime favourite dishes. “There are a couple of dishes I have to eat when in Singapore, but I like to try new places to eat them,” he says. Among his favourites include Singapore’s national dish, Hainanese chicken rice, and Peranakan kuih (sweet snacks). “Singaporean food is the sum of its parts – Chinese, Indian, Malay, the British colonial influence. It’s one of the world’s most exciting cuisines and no other city brings together so many influences. It punches well above its weight,” he says.

Destination Flavour screens on Thursdays at 8pm on SBS. sbs.com.au

METHOD Place the meat in the refrigerator or freezer for 1 hour – this will make it easier to slice. Using a large, sharp knife, thinly slice the meat against the grain, then again into 5cm long pieces. To make the marinade, place all the ingredients in a blender or food processor and process until smooth. Transfer to a bowl, add the beef, and stir to combine well. Cover and refrigerate for at least 3-4 hours or overnight, if time permits. Meanwhile, to make the peanut sauce, place the chillies, onions, garlic, lemongrass, belacan, coriander and cumin in a blender and process until smooth. Heat the oil in a medium saucepan over medium heat and fry the paste, stirring occasionally, for about 10-15 minutes until very fragrant. Add the peanuts and coconut cream and bring to a simmer. Combine the tamarind pulp and hot water until smooth, then add to the sauce with the sugar and salt and simmer for another 5-10 minutes or until the sauce starts to form an oily gloss on the surface. Re-heat gently just before serving. Soak the bamboo skewers in cold water for at least 1 hour before skewering. Thread one slice of beef onto each skewer, weaving it onto the skewer 2-3 times to hold it in place. You only want the meat to come about one-third of the way down the skewer. Use your hands to mold the skewer into a nice, firm shape.

• 1kg beef topside • 50 small bamboo skewers • 125ml (½ cup) peanut oil, for brushing • Cucumber and red onion pieces, to serve

MARINADE • 1 medium brown onion, coarsely chopped • 1 tsp ground fennel • 1 tsp ground turmeric • 4 tbsp sugar • 2 tbsp ground coriander • 1 tbsp ground cumin • 3 stalks lemongrass, tender inner core only, finely sliced • 2 tbsp dark soy sauce • 4 tbsp peanut oil

PEANUT SAUCE • 10 large dried chillies, de-seeded and soaked in hot water for 20 minutes • 2 medium brown onions, sliced • 4 garlic cloves, peeled • 2 stalks lemongrass, tender inner core only, finely sliced • 1 tbsp belacan (shrimp paste) • 1 tsp ground coriander • 1 tsp ground cumin • 60ml (¼ cup) peanut oil • 300g roasted peanuts • 400ml coconut cream • 1 tbsp tamarind pulp • 125ml (½ cup) hot water • 2 tbsp sugar • 1 tsp salt Preheat a barbecue hot plate, grill pan or frying pan over high heat. Brush the skewers with oil, then cook, basting regularly with extra oil and turning regularly for about 5 minutes until cooked through. Serve immediately with the peanut sauce, and cucumber and red onion on the side.

IN THE LONG SUMMER months, life in so many homes revolves around the pool. Create an inviting and safe space with these top tips. 1. Bring the indoors out Set up the perfect space for summer lounging by applying the same principles you would inside. Create an open-air living room with comfy seating, or a dining space for poolside al la carte. 2. Going green Opt for fast-growing trees, vines and shrubs for shade and privacy, and hardy plants that won’t mind the occasional splash. Deciduous plants are best avoided, or you’ll find yourself forever scooping leaves out of the water. 3. The material things When decking out your pool area, consider durability. Waterproof and rust-proof materials are a smart move, otherwise consider lighter pieces that are easily moved under cover. 4. Play it safe Water safety should always be front of mind around the pool. But safety doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice style. A glass screen is a timeless option that won’t obstruct your view or clash with decor. 5. Light it up Use your pool at any hour with clever lighting both underwater and around the pool area. As well as being safer and more welcoming, a well-lit pool is a beautiful feature.

SCOUT’S

Whether you want to find out where the best waves are or check for safety, you’ll be in the know with the Seabreeze app’s nationwide wind and swell forecasts. (It’s free too!)

Phone fear It’s the nerve centre of our modern lives. Activate the ‘find your phone’ setting on your device and have essential contacts and information on the cloud so you won’t be stranded.

The perfect pack Keep it simple. Two outfits with layering options, and two pairs of shoes is enough for most trips. Add in bathers/ warm coat for destination-specific activities and you’re done. TOP TIP: Always check your luggage so you can be hands-free in the airport.

UP

Get out of the cities and you’ll discover Australia is a big wide, empty country, which makes it the perfect place to observe the sky. With free stargazing apps such as Star Chart, SkEye or Planets, you can interpret the night sky wherever you go.

Follow the food trucks Find fab food on the go with these great apps and you’ll never be hungry (in Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne).

Think you don’t need insurance when travelling domestically? Always be prepared natural disasters and illness can happen anywhere. Get covered when the unexpected happens by adding insurance to your flight on jetstar.com. Plus - you only pay for what you need, so it’s practical and affordable!

In Hawaii everything is done with aloha (while used as a greeting it also means love, affection and shared understanding) Tingling all over, I’m ready for an hour-long traditional Lomi Lomi massage with homemade passionfruit body butter and hot stones. Lomi Lomi is about the alignment of body, mind and spirit. Hawaiian tradition says that the bones carry the spirit of our souls, and in the practice of Lomi Lomi, a message can be conveyed through the hands. The Lomi technique takes an alternatively gentle and firm approach, channelling the past, strong, female teachers who influenced the modern style. I’d requested extra work on my legs – a necessity after a long-distance run

pre-holiday left me with some seriously unyielding muscles. Jocelyn combines stretches with massage, effectively (and thankfully) loosening my joints and muscles. I finish up with a tropical Hawaiian facial, complete with a scalp massage and oil treatment. Glowing all over, I’m encouraged to have a look around the property and gather anything I find. The garden produces lemons, passionfruit and avocados. I’m also given a Ti leaf, which I can take as souvenir or to make a spiritual offering. This versatile leaf is an important and cherished item in Hawaiian culture

The Aloha Spa Ritual at Ho’omana includes a coconut milk and honey bath, sugar scrub, Lomi Lomi massage and herbal facial for US$279. You can also book for a single service, a range of other rituals, as well as private Lomi Lomi training (suitable for beginners).

After Jocelyn chants and we give gratitude together, forehead-to-forehead, I’m lusciously scrubbed from shoulders to toes for half an hour to the sounds of Hawaiian music.

CULTURE Good things can happen when entrepreneurs are inspired by their travels WORDS ANNABEL ROSS

50 s well as giving us the time and space to relax and unwind, travel can have other, unexpected benefits. Meeting people from different countries, cultures and walks of life can help us see the world in different ways, and pave the way for exciting creative partnerships. It’s all about thinking out of the box and looking beyond your own backyard. These three business owners will tell you that joining forces with other communities can be personally and professionally rewarding for all.

Buying into bush lore Husband and wife team Russel Koskela and Sasha

My ambition is to create more of these collaborations and play to the communities’ particular strengths Titchkosky realised their dream of starting their own furniture business, with all products manufactured in Australia, 16 years ago. The work they have done with Indigenous communities is among their proudest achievements. The Yolngu weavers (through Elcho Island Arts off the coast of Arnhem

50-51_EXPERIENCE_WORK AND PLAY.indd 50

Land in the Northern Territory) make Koskela’s Yuta Badalaya range of lampshades and the Tjanpi Desert Weavers from the Ngaanyatjarra Pitjantjatjara Yankunytjatjara lands in Central Australia collaborated with Koskela on their Tili Wiru lampshade collection. Sasha and Russel visited Elcho Island with their children to learn more about how the Yolngu weavers work. When the weavers told them they were going shopping, they were puzzled. “Where are the shops?” they asked. “The bush is our art materials shop – and it is free,” senior weaver Mavis Warrngilna Ganambarr replied. Sasha and Russel have made the

collaborations completely risk-free for the communities they work with; they buy everything that is made, then it’s up to Koskela to sell the stock. “My ambition is to create more of these collaborations and play to the communities’ particular strengths,” Sasha says. “Ultimately we want to build up a beautiful collection of products that we can take to a global stage, and plough money back into these communities.” koskela.com.au

Fighters for fair trade Three years ago, if you’d told ex-peacekeeper Tom Mahon that he’d soon be running a coffee business, he would have laughed. But that’s what he and three other former Australian soldiers now do, since befriending an East Timorese family with a coffee farm in the country’s central-north. The family was being exploited by middlemen who bought their premium produce cheaply and sold it at great profit. When an expert tasted the coffee and deemed it extraordinary, Tom and friends thought they’d try to sell it back home in Melbourne, with a fairer deal for the farmers. There are now Wild Timor cafés

Profits are also donated to causes such as the Laulara Birthing Centre, which assists women through childbirth. “We never got into this thinking we wanted to drive Ferraris. Literally it was how can we help out our mates over there,” says Tom, who remains enchanted by the people and wilderness of East Timor. “It’s an hour flight from Darwin, yet it might as well be another world.” wildtimorcoffee.com

Katie spends half the year in Noosa and half in India, where she has her garments manufactured ethically, using machinery she has purchased to enable the women to generate an income. But giving back to the community doesn’t stop there. Katie also supports Forget Me Not, an incorporated Queensland charity that works with partner organisations in Nepal, Uganda and India to reunite trafficked children with their families. She has also raised money for the Tree of Life For Animals, an animal hospital and rescue centre in drought-stricken Rajasthan, where she

has also funded three bores. In 2007, Boom Shankar and the Zonta Club of Noosa had a water purifying system installed at the Fun and Child School in Hasanpura, the oldest slum area in Jaipur, India. “My favourite thing about India is the people,” says Katie,

who has considered the country her “second home” for more than 20 years. “Giving back to the communities where we manufacture and promoting charity projects in both India and Australia promotes the label’s mantra of big love and big life.” boomshankar.com.au

About the photographer

You can slow down to enjoy the simple pleasures in life ... connect with nature Victorians escaping the cold), going about their day, reading, or soaking up the great outdoors. On weekends, the parks were filled with kids roaming on bikes and scooters while their parents socialised. But consistently, midafternoon, a temporary peace would fall. “Things got very quiet as everyone seemed to take advantage of siesta time,” Natalie says. The ’vans’ residents were always up for a chat, and very proud of their homes on wheels. “I was

given many grand tours,” Natalie says. “Owners loved telling me about how they met their van, the many travels they’d been on together or about the great detail they had put into restoring it.” Most could not imagine spending their holidays any other way. It’s a sense of freedom Natalie can appreciate. “You can slow down to enjoy the simple pleasures in life ... connect with nature in a way we don’t often get the chance to do in our busy day-to-day lives.”

Natalie McComas picked up her first camera in high school, an old Pentax of her grandfather’s with a broken light meter. She was soon looking at the world through the eyes of a photographer, moving from Coffs Harbour to Brisbane after finishing high school to study the craft. “I have always felt being a photographer was the right path for me to follow,” she says. natmccomas.com

ome of the fondest memories from Natalie McComas’ childhood come from school holiday camping trips in a remote New South Wales national park with her extended family. “We had the time of our lives,” the Queenslandbased photographer says. “We’d run around until dark, making damper, catching fish, surfing, swimming, chasing crabs, riding down sand dunes and four-wheel driving ... the whole camping ground often felt like one big family.” When Jetstar Magazine sent Natalie on assignment to capture this vision in northern New South Wales and southern Queensland, she discovered that community spirit is still alive and well. On her visits to the scenic North Coast Holiday Park at Evans Head, Tallebudgera Creek Tourist Park and the Tweed Coast Holiday Parks at Fingal Head, Tweed Heads and Kingscliff North, Natalie observed the laid-back rhythms of ’vanning life.

Festival spirit Adelaide Festival kickstarted the city’s love affair with the arts back in 1960, and it’s still finding ways to reinvent itself. “Adelaide is the perfect festival city, it can completely take over,” says new Adelaide Festival co-artistic director Rachel Healy. “You can have this incredible weekend and see 10 things a day, and surrounding you is this sense that the whole city is out there having a ball.”

62-69_EXPLORE_ADELAIDE.indd 64

Initially a naughty offshoot to the main festival, the Adelaide Fringe has grown to become one of the world’s biggest open-access festivals with more than 1100 events. Rundle Street is packed with charismatic performers, all eager to coax you into their next session. It’s worth taking a punt – that young stand-up comedian or bold, new cabaret show might become the next big thing on the international scene.

Pick your pop-up The festive spirit spreads into pop-up venues and artist hubs that spring up around the city, each with a distinct flavour and following. The Garden of Unearthly Delights (16 February to 19 March) to the east turns the parklands into a tent

Adelaide is the perfect festival city, it can completely take over

city hosting temporary performance spaces, carnival attractions and big-name comedians. For the city’s young and glamorous, the Royal Croquet Club is the go-to destination. A success in its original Victoria Square home, it’s leaving the city centre for the balmy riverside spot of Pinky Flat this year.

A

s a smaller capital city marooned in the middle of the continent, Adelaide is often miscast as the quiet cousin of the flashy east coast giants. The nation’s comedians might still crack jokes about the city, but there’s a damn good reason they come back year in, year out: Adelaide has evolved into a buzzing metropolis. A swarm of performers and creatives arrive from every corner of the world in February and March for the annual Adelaide Festival, Adelaide Fringe and splinter events – a cultural influx known as ‘Mad March’. Now, more than ever though, they are simply complementing the rich home-grown talent.

Small bars lead a foodie revolution Adelaide’s year-round offerings are enjoying a renaissance courtesy of tweaked licensing laws and an injection of adventurous culinary spirit. In the West End, Hindley Street offers the kind of raucous nightlife Sydney now pines for. For something more refined, dodge the queues of 18-year-old clubhoppers and head down Leigh, Gresham or Peel Street. These once underutilised laneways are teeming with inventive and inviting bars and restaurants. On Leigh Street, the award-winning Pink Moon Saloon is a

In the heart of the East End’s Fringe precinct, spots such as Africola and Orana head up a strip of innovative restaurants. Duncan Welgemoed’s revamped shebeen Africola has shifted its South African focus further to the north of the continent. Jock Zonfrillo

of Orana embraces Australia’s native fauna to create unique tastes. “For a while it felt like Adelaide was stuck in a certain zone,” says Jordan Jeavons, the Port Willunga-raised boy wonder whose culinary adventures have seen him roam across the state. He’s currently manning the grill at Superfish, the open-air dive bar adjoining the recently

revamped 153-year-old Crown & Anchor pub. “Social media and travel have opened up everyone to a million different ideas, and there’s this new generation coming through executing new things, with a fresh energy that hasn’t been seen before. “It’s born of a desire to be different,” he says. “And that’s really rad – we’re catching up.”

Damn fine coffee The coffee connoisseurs at neighbours Exchange Specialty Coffee (Vardon Street) and Sad:cafe (Ebenezer Place) offer a taste of Adelaide’s thriving daytime scene. With close ties to Kangarilla roasters Dawn Patrol Coffee, Sad:cafe is one of a growing crop of CBD eateries taking a hands-on approach to coffee beans. My Kingdom For A Horse and Elementary Coffee can be found roasting in the building.

Expect uber-cool outdoor musical events, slick food stalls and impressive bigbudget sets (last year’s main stage resembled a three-storey high boombox). This year the Festival’s Riverbank Palais (2-19 March), a throwback to a floating pleasure barge that lit up the River Torrens in the roaring 1920s, is likely to come up trumps. It’s an ambitious project given the last barge mysteriously sunk in 1928. “A great festival hub is so much more than just a bar. It’s a place to meet, mingle with artists and see friends before or after a show,” Rachel says. “It has this incredible story too, one you’d expect in Paris not Adelaide.”

If the Adelaide sun is particularly scorching, the waters of Semaphore beach are just a few minutes away. Whether you’re visiting at the height of Mad March, or opting for a more relaxed stay, there has rarely been a better time to get a taste of Adelaide’s ongoing evolution. If done right, the City of Churches can deliver a cultural experience worth savouring.

A raft of developments have been bubbling away below Adelaide’s mellow surface. These are our picks of the biggest gamechangers. ADELAIDE OVAL The people of Adelaide held their collective breaths when their beloved oval underwent renovations, but the result has been embraced by all. Right on the city’s fringes, and connected by a footbridge over the Torrens, the oval has breathed new life into the city, pulling in a steady stream of AFL, cricket, soccer and music fans. SMALL BARS It’s hard to overstate the impact the revision of the small bar laws had on the Adelaide CBD, ushering in a wave of new watering holes and eateries. Next on the cards is a proposed expansion of the new licensing laws out into the suburbs, with North Adelaide leading the push.

create AdeLINK, a new tram network running around the city and out into major suburban areas. CYCLE CITY Adelaide’s wide, flat streets have long held potential for cyclists, and the city is poised to deliver with a large-scale investment on urban bike paths. Work on the north-south Frome Street bike path is already underway, and a $12-million injection from the State Government and city council will deliver many more. GOING GREEN In an ambitious move, in late 2015 Adelaide declared its intention to become the world’s first carbonneautral city by 2050. An initial five-year action plan between 2016-2021 aims to increase community involvement in cutting carbon emissions, promote the uptake of renewable, clean technologies and severely reduce transport emissions within the city boundaries. To fly carbon neutral, offset your flight when you book with Jetstar.com.

For an alternative to smashed avocado and flat whites, Kutchi Deli Parwana is the vividly decorated offshoot of a family-run western suburbs icon. “My sisters and I wanted to do a take on traditional Afghan food in a more contemporary setting,” co-owner Durkhanai Ayubi says. “The same authentic food but more accessible in the heart of the city – make it a bit more pop-arty and cool.” The Ayubi sisters are Parwana’s second generation, translating their parents’ legacy to suit a different crowd. “It was a big risk,” Durkhanai says. “But it’s like having a home-cooked meal in the city, and I think people love that.” If you want to live like a local, make a beeline for the Adelaide Central Market to sample wares from Poh Ling Yeow’s Jamface, Spanish-inspired Comida or any of the fresh-as-you-can-get local produce on offer. By night, grab a pint of Coopers from century-old live music institutions such as The Exeter, the Grace Emily or the Crown & Anchor.

Soothe the soul Hit the ground feet first at Spring Spa in downtown Queenstown. The signature foot massage, an aromatic foot soak followed by a light exfoliation and leg massage, is the best way to shake off travel fatigue. Fully revived, soak up your surroundings on Queenstown’s pebbly beach and watch the iconic steamship TSS Earnslaw shuttle into harbour. Nestled in the embrace of the Southern Alps with views over Lake Wakatipu, Queenstown’s idyllic setting is a balm to the soul. Wander through the leafy Queenstown

Botanical Gardens out to the headland for views back over town. If more intensive relaxation is called for, make your way to the Spa at Nugget Point. Overlooking the milky twists of the Shotover River at Arthurs Point, the spa is modelled on Roman baths, complete with a domed ceiling soaring over a mosaic-tiled pool and ornate carved pillars. After a full-body massage in the private treatment room, with an optional aromatherapy soak, while away any lingering worries in a lazy circuit between the sauna, steam room and pool. Complete your transformation at Nadi Wellness Centre, a welcoming studio overlooking Queenstown’s Village Green where trainers versed in traditional techniques guide practitioners of all skill levels, focusing as much on the mental stretching as the physical.

year-round popularity, staying well fed isn’t a problem. For a casual meal, burger fans are hard pressed to avoid the cult sensation that is Fergburger, with queues spilling out onto the street day and night. Taco Medic, an erstwhile pop-up that’s now permanent, distributes fresh soft-shell tacos from a small counter off Searle Lane. Vudu Café is a local favourite for coffee, baked goods and breakfast.

Crisp mornings give way to sunny afternoons, perfect for vineyard-hopping or a stroll through autumn leaves. As the evening chill moves in, roaring fires and fine local dining beckons. Looking for all the world like a Swiss alpine village transplanted to the far side of the globe, Queenstown and its surrounds offers ample opportunity for a little indulgence and a lot of relaxation, all delivered with a wholesome dose of fresh mountain air.

A scenic patchwork of vineyards threading between mountains, the Gibbston Valley is a mere thirty-minute’s drive from Queenstown. A subregion of Central Otago, the world’s southernmost wine region, Gibbston is known for cold-climate wines, particularly worldrenowned pinot noir. Discover the vineyard that started it all at Gibbston Valley Winery. Until the 1980s, Otago was considered too cold, too high-altitude and too far south for wine cultivation. But perceiving similarities between Central Otago and Bordeaux in France, Irish journalist Alan Brady secured a patch of arid, sloping land and started planting in 1981, producing his first commercial vintage in 1987 and opening a cellar door in 1990. The area has since boomed, and Alan’s gamble was vindicated in 2001 when Gibbston Valley’s reserve pinot become the first nonFrench pinot noir to win a gold medal at the London International Wine Challenge. The cellar door now

encompasses a cheese shop, restaurant, bike-hire centre and New Zealand’s biggest wine cave. Further along the Gibbston Highway, the tasting room at Kinross offers a great snapshot of local winemaking with drops poured from five boutique vineyards – Coal Pit, Domaine Thompson, Hawkshead, Valli and Wild Irishman (the latter the latest venture from pioneering Alan). With an onsite general store, café and boutique accommodation thrown in, you can happily linger. Guarded by two diminutive vineyard dogs, Mt Rosa sits high against the backdrop of a snowy mountain at the outer

The best spot in the house at Coalfire Barbecue Bar is in front of the fireplace, for flame-fuelled comfort food verges of Gibbston. A former sheep station, the owners discovered the soil that made bad grazing for their flock was excellent for grape growing. In the cellar door, formerly the woolshed, the friendly team walk visitors through their sauvignon

blanc, pinot gris, rosé and pinot noir. If it’s chilly, try the warming mulled wine. On the way back to Queenstown, stop by Amisfield’s striking schist rock cellar door. One of the region’s largest single vineyard estates, Amisfield specialises in pinot noir and aromatic whites such as riesling and sauvignon blanc (of the 30 hectares of sauvignon blanc in Central Otago, Amisfield has 10). After a tasting, indulge in the light-filled bistro or take up a game of petanque on the terrace.

Picturesque gold rush village Arrowtown, 20-minutes’ drive from Queenstown, is a must-do daytrip in autumn, when the surrounding wooded hills blaze with russet reds and gold. Tourists drift between the gift stores and quaint cafés in heritage wood and stone worker’s cottages, or sun themselves on the manicured village greens. For a reminder of the town’s more humble origins, drop past the Arrowtown Chinese Settlement, where 19thcentury miners lived in schist hovels crowded around mine shafts. These days, Arrowtown is more concerned with leisure than labour. The laid-back atmosphere and community feel has attracted many Queenstown migrants, including Pete Gawron and Melanie Hill. The husband and wife team had left Sydney to open Jazz Bar in Queenstown, when they jumped on the opportunity to buy a disused car park on Arrowtown’s main street and build their own restaurant.

Sydney food-court lunch is no longer three choices from a bain-marie or a sadlooking sandwich only toasting can redeem.

The District, Chatswood With more than a third of the northern suburb’s population of Chinese heritage, it makes sense that some of the city’s best Asian food can be found in Chatswood. The District is an open dining hall with a maze of authentic eateries. Known as the cheapest Michelinstarred restaurant in the world, Tim Ho Wan opened its first Australian outpost here in March 2015, creating snaking lines of customers waiting for their Taiwanese dim sum fix. In the middle of the hall, Chum Tang chefs toss woks filled with authentic Thai food from the northern Isaan region – think spicy green papaya salads, larb chicken wings and crispy pork belly. For a treat, Hello Kitty Diner is cuteness overload – the Instagram fave: fried chicken and Kitty-shaped waffles.

above the Indian Ocean, Banyan Tree Ungasan melds Balinese architecture with modern luxury. For a wowfactor wedding, the elaborate Dove chapel is covered in hundreds of sculpted white birds. Or celebrate in laidback style on the private beach of Sundays Beach Club in Uluwatu. Bundle in a honeymoon in the private villas of Ungasan Clifftop Resort, which includes daily access to the club.

HILLSIDE HEAVEN Surrounded by terraced rice paddies and lush jungle, Ubud has a more relaxed vibe than its coastal cousins. Accommodation ranges from traditional villas to eco resorts cascading in greenery. A series of thatched-roof buildings clinging to a forested slope, the Hanging Gardens is one of Bali’s most beautiful resorts (with the world’s best swimming pool according to Condé Nast Traveller). Tie the knot on a wooden platform floating on that very pool, or against the backdrop of jungle-shrouded Dalem Segara Temple.

Kristy & Bruce Tamapua When Perth-born Kristy and New Zealander Bruce decided to say “I do”, Bali was the natural choice. “Bali wasn’t really a hard decision to make as it’s easy for everyone to get to, and holds special memories for us already,” Kristy says. They left matters in the capable hands of Tristan from Bali Brides Wedding Planners. “From that stage on there weren’t any challenges at all,” says Kristy. “She negotiated with our venue, sent us menus, found everything we needed... And even managed all our payments.” Their big day, at Nusa Dua Resort, went off without a hitch. “We loved how relaxed the day was,” Kristy says. “The dance floor was always full, the food was amazing… the entire vibe was fun, relaxed and we were surrounded by our closest friends and family.”

BYRON BAY Australia’s favourite coastal playground is the natural setting for a boho beach wedding. Byron Shire in northern New South Wales offers surf beaches, laid-back coastal communities and quirky rural hamlets, pretty farmland and lush sub-tropical rainforest. Perfect for free spirits and salt-of-the-earth souls, Byron effortlessly melds a laid-back sensibility with coastal charm.

If you’ve always dreamed of getting married with the sand beneath your toes, Byron is for you. At Barefoot at Broken Head, hold your ceremony on a secluded beach before wandering through dunes and rainforest to an open Balinesestyle pavilion for the reception. With accommodation on site, the wedding party has no excuse not to dance until dawn. Other guests can be comfortably accommodated in the local area. At Byron Oasis options run from self-catered family apartments to spacious treetop holiday houses and luxury three-bedroom guesthouses metres from Tallows Beach. Fronting onto Belongil Beach, eco-resort Elements of Byron brings a sophisticated luxury to laid-back Byron. The setting is up to you; have your ceremony under a rainforest canopy by the lily ponds, on an elevated lawn looking out to the Byron lighthouse, or set up a mini festival space in the beachfront club.

BOHEMIAN RHAPSODY On half an acre of landscaped gardens in central Byron, the versatile indoor-outdoor event space The Secret Garden is home to sculptures and unique artworks, including a retro bus painted by celebrated Australian artist David Bromley. Say your vows on the lawn, before sharing a wedding feast at long tables under the palm trees. Byron might be famous for beaches, but the dreamy hinterland is every bit as atmospheric. A 10-minute drive from Bangalow, the rustic Earth House sits high on a ridge over the Corndale Valley. Making full use of those views, ceremonies are usually held under the spreading branches of a 100-year-old fig tree on the hilltop. Further inland, the dream hinterland honeymoon awaits at Cooks Cottage in Rosebank. Relax on the wide, deep verandah looking out onto subtropical rainforest, cosy up by the fire or whip up a feast in the generous kitchen stocked with local produce, including fresh eggs from resident chooks.

WE DECIDED ON FOREVER FOUNDERS OF RESTAURANT NANNA KERR’S KITCHEN IN THE NSW HUNTER VALLEY, MATTY AND JIMMY KERR EXCHANGED VOWS DURING A WEEK-LONG FESTIVAL OF LOVE, FAMILY AND FRIENDSHIP. WORDS SHONAGH WALKER

Matty and Jimmy Kerr had expected marriage equality to be a reality when they exchanged vows last December. The boys, who also founded and launched the LGTBI festival Pokolbin Pride last October, proceeded with their wedding regardless, saying, “We don’t need the Australian government to tell us what love is.”

PHOTOGRAPHY RICHARD WINDEYER, JEFF WILSON, ELEMENTS OF BYRON, COOKS COTTAGE, FARM AT CAPE KIDNAPPERS, TREETOPS LODGE

NEW ZEALAND Land of soaring mountains, pristine wilderness and rugged coastlines, New Zealand is the perfect backdrop to a romantic adventure. Nature-loving couples are spoilt for choice. As the first Asia Pacific nation to legalise same-sex marriage, New Zealand has also become a beacon for marriage equality.

LODGE LIFE Refined styling, gourmet dining and unforgettable views; New Zealand’s luxury lodges are in a league all of their own. Accustomed to providing the finest attention to detail, a lodge will deliver the wedding of a lifetime, or a honeymoon you’ll never want to end. Treetops Lodge and Estate in Rotorua makes the most of the resort’s natural surrounds. As part of a three-day wedding package, the party can spend the lead-up exploring the protected wilderness area, in the spa or even taking on a round of clay pigeon shooting. The Farm at Cape Kidnappers sits high in the pastures on the fringes of the Hawke’s Bay wine

region. Ponder the views from your suite, explore the 6,000 acres on foot, horseback or bike and indulge in a daily menu created using only the freshest produce. For golfers, Cape Kidnappers’ course is ranked as one of the world’s best. But never fear – if you lose your other half to the green, the spa will more than make up for it.

GET GLAMPING Immerse yourself in the wilderness without giving up the creature comforts. Canopy Camping offers off-grid luxury camping for that much-needed seclusion after the chaos of a wedding. Retreat to an airy tent overlooking a white-sand beach on Slipper’s Island, off the Coramandel Peninsula. Snuggle up hobbit-style in Underhill Valley, a rustic nook built into the hillside in Waikato farmland. Or camp out under the canopy on the Kauri Coast at Highfield Forest Retreat, with no one but native birdlife for company.

TELL US YOUR STORY JAMES KERR: We met through a match making app. Matty’s profile read: ‘I want to meet someone that I can take home to my parents and watch David Attenborough documentaries with’. Matty came to dinner dressed in stripy Long Johns, Ugg boots and a beanie. It was love at first sight. MATTY KERR: The attraction was instant, on far more than a physical level. There was honesty, vibrational energy and spirituality; there was a connection and need. JK: In June 2015 we quit our corporate jobs, moved to the Hunter Valley and opened Nanna Kerr’s Kitchen. Taking the leap of self-employment means we are equal in the relationship on every level. It’s shown us a side of each other that most couples never experience. It’s a privilege to know another human this deeply.

87

WHAT DID YOU WANT YOUR WEDDING DAY TO BE? MK: A festival of family, friends and love - informal, with elements of tradition, but with a non-religious, relaxed feel. We wanted everyone to feel loved and we wanted a party atmosphere, so there was no table plan or sit down meal. WHAT ADVICE WOULD YOU GIVE TO OTHER COUPLES TYING THE KNOT? JK: Your guests are there to witness your love, so celebrate and honour them, too. MK: We took time out during the wedding celebrations and hid in our bedroom, listened to our favorite songs and had a beer together. With 280 guests outside in the garden, it was one of those special moments just for us.

PACIFIC ISLAND TIME The endless Pacific Ocean, deserted beaches and swaying palm trees – it doesn’t get much more romantic than the South Pacific. With a few thousand islands as diverse as they are beautiful, you’re sure to have a honeymoon or wedding right out of your daydreams.

COOK ISLANDS

FRIENDLY FIJI The 333 Fijian islands are known for faultless beaches and warm people. The main island Viti Levu is a popular starting point, home to big-name resorts including Sofitel, Radisson Blu and Hilton. Vanua Levu, the second largest island, offers forest walking trails, lush farmland and pristine coast without the crowds. But no trip is complete without alighting on an outlying island. Adults-only resort Likuliku Lagoon in the Mamanuca Islands curves around a white-sand bay on a calm lagoon. Weddings range from an intimate service on the deck of an overwater bure, to a Fijian ceremony at sunset.

HULA INTO HAWAII The eight main Hawaiian islands encompass geothermal marvels, big-wave surfing, bustling cities, sleepy beach towns and tracts of wilderness. Known as ‘the gathering place’ Oahu has this all in one. In Waikiki you’ll find high-end shopping, huge resorts and hip restaurants. Further east, the laid-back beach town of Kailua is perfect for kicking back. The big waves of the North Shore might be famous, but they are not the only appeal of this rugged stretch of coast. Discover pineapple plantations, scenic coves and surfy-cool towns. In summer, the monster waves disappear, leaving perfect conditions for swimming and snorkelling. Turtle Bay Resort is a honeymoon stalwart, and hosts more than 350 weddings a year. See what all the fuss is about as you enjoy horseback riding at sunset, picnics on the sands, or a private helicopter ride along the beautiful coastline.

alter McGuire is standing on the banks of Derbarl Yerrigan, the Indigenous name for the Swan River, singing a song of the Dreamtime, when a pod of dolphins surfaces in the water behind him. This isn’t unusual. Even here, at Elizabeth Quay, one of the newest redevelopments on Perth’s urban waterfront, nature is everywhere. As a Nyungar elder, Walter knows this only too well. On his daily Go Cultural Aboriginal Tours, he shares the history of the

world’s oldest living culture, while pointing out some of the areas of the city that were once important campgrounds and hunting areas for his ancestors. We’re standing in front of a five-metre-tall sculpture by Laurel Nannup. It looks like a giant bird in a boat looking out across the water. “That’s right,” Walter says. “That’s what the sails on the boats looked like to my people during First Contact – a very big bird.” This is peak summer for most of Australia, but for the Nyungar it is Bunuru, one of their six seasons.

It’s the hottest part of the year in southwest Western Australia, with little rain. It’s a time when the Nyungar would traditionally move to the estuaries to fish. Chef Jed Gerrard, who launched Wildflower at COMO The Treasury two years ago, uses native ingredients on the menu and says Bunuru comes with a bounty. “There is a lot of beautiful stone fruit but summer in Perth for me is about foraging,” he says. “We get wild garlic flowers and wild fennel, which is everywhere, and they go into the dishes at Wildflower.”

first with Little Birdy, but more recently on solo material including the album Human, released last October. “The weather is just so perfect, and there’s nothing better than an early morning swim at the beach followed by lunch out somewhere.” She loves Jessie’s Curry Kitchen, an Indian/Malaysian restaurant in Inglewood. “It’s just really amazing soul food.” While she’s working on new material in her home studio this summer, Katy is also appearing with Brooklyn outfit Big Thief (22 February) at one of the hundreds of events at this year’s Perth International Arts Festival (PIAF), which takes over traditional and unexpected venues throughout February. “My pleasure in February is seeing other people’s pleasure,” says PIAF’s artistic director Wendy Martin. “It’s hard work but the delight comes from the response of the audiences.” Choosing a favourite event is an almost impossible task for any festival director, but

Away from the kitchen Jed spends his time as many locals do. “I head to Floreat Beach where you can take the dog for a walk and go for a swim,” he says. It’s hard to escape the lure of blue during Perth’s summer. New developments have added seaside dining options at City Beach and Scarborough is in the midst of a $100 million revamp. But for all the talk by local councils of dining and entertainment hubs, it’s the simplicity of a splash or a stroll along the foreshore of the northern beaches that is the city’s big drawcard. “I distinctly remember having a cassette tape of the Beach Boys that we always listened to on the way to beach,” singer Katy Steele says. She grew up in the Perth suburb of Jandakot. “Me and my three brothers would pile into the family van and cruise down to the beach singing along to Brian Wilson’s amazing melodies.” Little has changed, even though Katy is now an acclaimed musician,

Creative cool Another of Wendy’s favourite summer hangouts is Chicho Gelato in Northbridge. The store is run by husband-andwife team Cesare and Carly DeBartolo and queues during summer can snake down the street. Using all-natural pastes created from local, seasonal ingredients, they serve up scoops of salted caramel, chocolate with passionfruit jubes and green tea and mochi cake. Carly has come up with a signature flavour for PIAF this year. Throughout all the venues, the scent of lemon myrtle, a rainforest tree and bush food, will enhance the experience. There’s also a signature cocktail featuring the flavour, and Carly has taken the concept one

Wendy lists the opening event, Boorna Waanginy: The Trees Speak (10–12 February) as one she’s excited about. “Kings Park will become an extraordinary canvas for a walk-through experience that celebrates the incredible, diverse ecology of southwestern Australia. People will walk in along Fraser Avenue and the trees will begin blossoming, there’ll be bees and snakes crawling through the branches and giant numbats.” It’s all done with assistance of lights and technology. Then there’s an outdoor stage at the Chevron Festival Gardens, with its focus on contemporary music from artists such as Nathaniel Rateliff and the Night Sweats, Toro Y Moi and the Evan Sherman Big Band. For something completely different there’s also Before the Siren, a one-day feminist footy festival created by Melbourne artist Lara Thomas and Perth duo Snapchat. “We’ve got high, low and all the art in between,” Wendy says.

The Basin is protected from the open sea and offers pristine snorkelling in calm waters. And, of course, there are Rottnest’s cutest residents, the quokkas. They like to hang out near the bakery to sneak pie crumbs, but the best time to see them is on late-afternoon walks near the country club.

BOOK AUSTRALIA’S LEADING MARKETING EXPERT AS KEYNOTE SPEAKER FOR YOUR NEXT COMPANY OR INDUSTRY CONVENTION VOTED

No.1

G H

SPEAKER

at multi-presenter events - for both “content” & “inspiration”.

If your business or industry is planning a convention or event & you’re looking for a “keynote speaker” with a difference, look no further. Australia’s leading direct-response marketing guru, John Dwyer, is continually voted “No. 1 Most Popular Speaker” at multi-presenter events & provides a presentation rich in content & motivation. They call him “The Seinfeld Marketing Guy” because JD (as he’s known by most) convinced the superstar to come out of retirement & be spokesman for a small Australian financial institution, the Greater Building Society - a marketing coup of massive proportions! The result of John’s Seinfeld campaign? The building society TRIPLED its home loan market share virtually overnight!! And Seinfeld went on record saying “JD was the smartest marketing mind he had ever worked with!” (High praise indeed!)

“JD Is The Best Marketing Person I Have Ever Worked With”

John is the perfect presenter for any industry’s Conference or Convention because his down- to-earth delivery of incredibly valuable marketing tips is both entertaining and “enterTRAINING”. When looking for keynote speakers, businesses or conference organisers normally have the choice of an entertainer, motivational guru or business expert. The great thing about John is that he is all 3 of these! His witty repertoire is engaging, his rags-to-riches story is highly motivational and his unique marketing advice is pure gold for any business person.

It’s not unusual for his clients to enjoy a 100% or 200% increase in sales within weeks of implementing his ideas.

The “Who’s Who” Of Australian Businesses Have Asked For His Advice

www.thebusinesswhisperer.com.au

And during his invigorating presentation, he showcases the best of these ideas, inspiring everyone to think outside the square. (His business is called The Institute Of Wow!) John is at the top of his field and has gained the title of “The Business Whisperer” because of his special skill of identifying a business’s problem and being able to propose a marketing solution in minutes!

Visit the website & be “wowed!”

The “who’s who” of Australian business have sought marketing advice from John, the likes of Westfield, 7 Eleven, News Ltd., KFC, Channel 9, Madura Tea, Video Ezy, Fairfax and ACP. Why? Because John’s a “marketing maverick” with no equal.

Seinfeld Marketing Guy Delivers Miracle Sales Increases For Aussie Businesses! GOLD COAST & SYDNEY SEMINARS TO SHOW BUSINESS OWNERS HOW TO EASILY ATTRACT NEW CLIENTS - ONLINE & OFFLINE! Jerry Seinfeld gets hundreds of requests from businesses around the world, asking him to endorse their products. He says no to 99% of them. One exception was a proposal from Australian marketing guru, John Dwyer, who shocked the marketing world when he coaxed Jerry Seinfeld out of retirement to be the spokesman for one of his clients, the Greater Building Society.

This was a coup of gigantic proportions. And the campaign delivered whopping dividends to the building society, with its home loan market share tripling in just 24 months. Even Seinfeld himself said Dwyer “was the cleverest marketing person he had ever worked with.” Now THAT’S an endorsement! Dwyer is an “in-demand” business marketing coach and speaker, who has an extraordinary record of massively increasing sales for businesses. He is a much sought-after keynote speaker for industry and company conventions. His business is aptly called The Institute Of Wow and he holds world records for the avalanche sales increases he has delivered to clients like Channel 9 (world ratings record), KFC, News Ltd., Westfield, the NRL and Madura Tea – just to name a few. He’s revealing his “Wow Marketing System” to business owners at his 1 Day Event: • Gold Coast – Friday 10 Feb, 2017 • Sydney – Thursday 23 Feb, 2017 • Gold Coast – Friday 10 March, 2017 • Sydney – Fri 24 March, 2017 One Sydney tourism business saw annual sales skyrocket from $10m to $14m with just one of his “outside the box” ideas.

104-109_DIRECTORY.indd 109

“Wow Client Attraction Formula” Works For Any Industry! Dwyer is a marketing maverick – his “thinking” is refreshingly unconventional and very different from most advertising agencies. It’s based on “emotional direct-response” techniques – both online and offline. Dwyer says, “When you’ve done as much marketing for all sorts of businesses as I have, you learn what works and what doesn’t. And as a result of years of testing ideas, I have created a Client Attraction System that enjoys incredible sales results.” Owners of both large and small businesses have heralded Dwyer’s Wow Client Attraction Formula as ingenious and it has been proven to work across more than 50 industries.

Butcher Makes An Extra $1 Million From One Of Dwyer’s Wow Ideas!

Regional NSW butcher, Kerry Buttsworth, says “My annual turnover across three stores catapulted from $3 million to over $4 million because of one brilliant marketing idea he gave me - a fuel discount loyalty program where I give customers 10 cents per litre fuel discount for every $50 spent. My stores are outside Woolworths & I’m now easily beating them at meat sales! His one day event is an insanely valuable eye-opener, that’s for sure!” (Details at www.fuelyoursales.com.au)

Sign Company Doubles Sales In A Month! Trond Smith of Adphence Signage implemented Dwyer’s system and says, “Within just a month, my sales had doubled. Not only did his system create more leads, but it also increased my conversion rate from 25% to nearly 80%.”

Restaurant Profits Go From $120,000 to $440,000 In One Year! Sanctuary Cove restaurant owner, Steve Fenton, says, “My annual profit skyrocketed from $120,000 to $440,000 because of John’s incredibly powerful step by step marketing formula. He’s a genius without equal I believe!”

“How To Attract New Clients” Event • Gold Coast – Friday 10 Feb, 2017 • Sydney – Thursday 23 Feb, 2017 • Gold Coast – Friday 10 March, 2017 • Sydney – Fri 24 March, 2017 Tickets are normally $497 for this 1 Day Seminar, but as a special offer for our magazine readers, a limited number of tickets are available for just $97 per person and can be gained at www.explodeyoursales.com.au At this event, Dwyer will also be showing business owners how to create a website that “sells”. Dwyer says, “About 90% of business websites are woeful, they are simply information centres and have none of the persuasive direct-response inclusions that turn visitors into buyers. At my event I’ll be demonstrating how easy it is to fix your website and turn it into a 24/7 sales machine.” The event covers both “business to business” and “business to consumer” marketing ideas.

Sokha and her husband are raising five children – one son, two nieces, a nephew and one grandchild. “They’ve lived with me since they were babies,” she explained. “I love them [all] as my children.” On a meagre income from chicken farming and her husband’s taxi driving, however, meeting the children’s needs was a constant struggle. The Sustainable

Business Development Project supports small business owners like Sokha, providing them with skills training, business know-how and access to finance so they can increase their incomes in the long term. Through this project Sokha’s learned how to “take care of chickens, produce vaccines to protect them from disease, vaccinate them and feed them with good food”. With these new skills she can now breed healthier chickens and produce more eggs to feed her family and sell in the marketplace. Sokha also joined a community savings group supported by the project. Group members pool their savings, which they

YOUR FLIGHT I TIPS & FACTS

THE SCIENCE OF FLYING How much do you know about the art of flight? Undertand how planes work and add a fascinating dimension to your appreciation of modern air travel

Third Law of Motion 116

To understand exactly how planes get up off the ground and stay there, a course in physics is necessary. Newton’s third law of motion states “for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction”. Applied to flight, there needs to be an equal force applied while the plane moves forward and upward to keep it in the sky, which is drag pushing backwards and gravity pushing downwards. When all four of these forces work in conjunction, you have flight.

ENGINE

UP, UP & AWAY POWER Thrust moves a plane forwards, but what moves it upwards? The thrust of the plane pushes air backwards and over the wings. The design of the wings moves the air up and over until the air pushes the plane upwards, creating the lift needed to fly. This lift holds the plane in the sky because there is an equal force between the push down (weight of the plane) and the push upwards (the lift), completing the law of motion. The engine works to move the plane forward, while the wings work to move it upwards.

Humble beginnings The Wright brothers were the first to achieve sustained, controlled, powered, heavierthan-air manned flight in 1903. Orville Wright’s flight may have only lasted 12 seconds, but it revolutionised transport. The formula used to overcome lift and drag is similar to that used today.

DID you KNOW? Glider planes have no engine, so they have to be angled downwards in flight to fly fast enough to produce the speed needed for lift.

play A plane’s engine has dual purpose. If the thrust force created by the engines exceeds the resistance, including drag, then it will move forward. The streamlined, aerodynamic design of aircraft also helps reduce drag by decreasing the aircraft’s air resistance.

A commercial aircraft flies at an average speed of

Hashtag-free holiday Imagine a holiday undisturbed by social media and email? Jayne D’Arcy did – and lived to tell the tale

Try it for yourself

holidays. One, a mountain scene captured on that email-free trek, scored a record number of likes. But not being able to snap and share this moment on the lawns was killing me. What to do? I took a pic, put down my phone and let it be. It was the same with aqua-marine water and whiter-than-white sand. Big merinos. Big submarines. Kids jumping off big submarines. No record of it for my friends to admire. It took a couple of days before I stopped trying to get the most interesting, unique

So I decided to raise the bar this holiday. I decided to make it a hashtag-free holiday shots of where we were and what we were doing. Checking the photos on my phone mid-way through the trip, I realised there were hardly any. I’d stopped taking them. I won’t get all deep and meaningful and declare that I started truly

living in the moment (though that was one of the outcomes of my email-free trek) but I did have more time. I wasn’t spending hours trying to take the perfect Instagrammable shot, I wasn’t thinking about what I was seeing in terms of hashtags, and I wasn’t repeatedly checking how many likes I was getting. And what’s not to like about that? Jayne D’Arcy is a travel writer based in Melbourne who loves to hike, bike and snap. Follow her adventures on Instagram via @jayne.darcy

I RECENTLY undertook the unthinkable: a week on holiday without checking my email. Not once. Sure, there was initial panic and a few “What if?”s. But I was up-to-date with life and I figured the world could wait while I went trekking. After that, it was time for checking. I took a deep breath. I’d missed nothing. I’d been Instagramming like mad, mind you. So I decided to raise the bar this holiday. I decided to make it a hashtag-free holiday. So I’m rolling down the lawns of Parliament House in Canberra with my kids. It’s a supersunny day and the scene is perfect. “This will look amazing on Insta!” I think. But then I remember my selfimposed rule. Before setting off on this family road trip along Australia’s east coast, I’d posted a photo of a classic Aussie saying that I’d scrawled on my whiteboard: ‘See you in the soup’. It’s slang for ‘See you around’. But not on this holiday. Would anyone notice my online absence? Since joining Instagram I’ve posted hundreds of photos of my

From Venice to the Yarra Valley

Four generations of winemaking have made De Bortoli one of Australiaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s leading families of wine

Promotion I DE BORTOLI

This ethos is core to the De Bortoli business. “It’s about bringing people together, celebrating and enjoying life,” adds Sally.

In vino veritas De Bortoli Wines’ cellar door is decorated with trophies, books and historical photographs – an inviting place to taste a singlevineyard Yarra Valley Chardonnay or the award-winning Noble One, a dessert wine that’s perfect with a ripe French cheese from the cellar door’s custom built cheese maturation room. Here you can also try wines from across the renowned winemaking regions where De Bortoli estates are located.

n the 1920s, leaving a Europe scarred by war, a young Vittorio De Bortoli left the small town of Castelcucco, near Venice in northern Italy, for the long trip to Australia by ship. Like many migrants before him, he must have been full of mixed emotions – sadness at leaving his birthplace (and his fiancé Giuseppina who was to join him later), nervous expectation about what lay ahead, and hope for the future. More than 90 years on, the De Bortoli winery in Victoria’s

IFC-1_JETSTAR_WINE REGIONS_DE BORTOLI.indd 1

Yarra Valley reveals a snapshot of Vittorio’s legacy. An hour’s drive from Melbourne, rolling hills of neatly tended vines surrounded by lush green lawns and white and yellow rose bushes stretch as far as the eye can see. The cellar door devoted to the estate’s awardwinning wines and the De Bortoli family’s Italian culinary heritage is an irresistible invitation to stop. Sally Webber, a fourth generation De Bortoli, grew up in the Yarra Valley vineyard and her grandparents’ winery in southwestern New South Wales’ Riverina. “Our days would consist of running around Nonna’s giant old olive tree, picking wild strawberries and playing with the dogs until we’d hear her call us inside for dinner; usually a bowl of risotto covered in parmigiano,” Sally says. “Now that we are older, life has become busier, but delicious food and wine still brings us all together.”

De Bortoli’s Italian family heritage is central to the experience of visiting the Yarra Valley winery and Locale Restaurant captures the essence of Italian hospitality and cuisine. The terracotta-tiled restaurant’s French doors open onto spectacular views of the vines, and the airy room inspires special celebrations or the pleasure of simply being together with friends and family. Chef Adam Mead and his team pay tribute to the best of Italian cuisine. Think hand-rolled gnocchi served with a rich pork ragu, a creamy risotto with duck and beetroot, or spaghettini with crab – all prepared simply with local produce. “I love the simplicity and honest authenticity of Italian cuisine,” Adam says. “The Italian history of De Bortoli is key to how we approach our work. We always keep the family history and tradition in mind when working on new dishes or developing the menu,” he says. It’s a family tradition – now in the fourth De Bortoli generation – that would make Vittorio and Giuseppina proud. De Bortoli Wines is at 58 Pinnacle Lane, Dixons Creek. Open daily from 10am to 5pm. debortoli.com.au

MILDURA On the edge of the Murray River, Mildura is one of the nation’s food bowls, with an abundance of fresh fruit, nuts, fish and meat. Twenty per cent of Australia’s wine grapes also flourish in this Mediterranean climate. Enjoy classics such as chardonnay, shiraz and cabernet sauvignon, but keep an eye out for emerging varieties such as tempranillo, sangiovese and nero d’Avola. Work your way around the region from the comfort of the Sunraysia Cellar Door, or board a paddleboat for a leisurely cruise down the river.

After a day spent tasting pinot noir at Curly Flat, riesling at Granite Hills and sparkling wine at Hanging Rock Winery, take your pick of cute country towns lined with cafés and galleries, including Kyneton, Woodend, Lancefield and Gisborne.

DE BORTOLI WINES Started by an Italian couple fleeing war-torn Europe and helmed by generations of the same family, De Bortoli has grown into one of Australia’s bestknown winemakers. Visit the Yarra Valley cellar door and Locale restaurant and gain a better sense of the impact of European migrants on our wine industry.

.WESTERN. .AUSTRALIA. From the acclaimed cellar doors of Margaret River to the untapped gems of the Great Southern and the casual fun of the Swan Valley, Western Australia promises a laidback blend of fine wines and good times.

MARGARET RIVER’S PREMIUM POSITION Three hours south of Perth, Margaret River is surrounded by surf beaches and towering karri forests. The region, best known for its elegant cabernet sauvignon, chardonnay and summer-perfect semillon sauvignon blanc, enjoys a warm maritime climate. It’s a relatively young wine region, first planted by Dr John Gladstones in 1967, and its annual crush accounts for just three per cent of Australia’s wine. But the region punches well above its weight in quality, producing 20 per cent of the country’s premium wine.

THE MARGARET RIVER WINE TRAIL With more than 95 cellar doors, you’re never far from your next drink in Margaret River. For serious wine lovers, highlights include tastings and contemporary dining at Vasse Felix, acclaimed biodynamic wines at Cullen, boutique single-vineyard wines from Cape Grace and award-winning wines and European cuisine at Xanadu. Then there are tutored wine flights and multi-course menus at Voyager Estate. At Leeuwin Estate, enjoy a dash of culture with your chardonnay, thanks to the onsite art gallery and popular Concert Series – next up is James Taylor and His All-Star Band on February 18.

GREAT OUTDOORS

For spectacular natural vistas, pencil in a visit to one of Margaret River’s historic lighthouses. Cape Leeuwin, near Augusta, sits at Australia’s most south-westerly point, where the Southern and Indian Oceans meet. Further north, the Cape Naturaliste Lighthouse, near Dunsborough, offers panoramic views over the Geographe Bay coastline and Leeuwin-Naturaliste National Park.

Just 25 minutes from the centre of Perth, the Swan Valley is perfectly positioned for a laid-back day trip. Follow up a tasting session at Oakover Grounds with a game of cricket on the lawn, or borrow equipment to fish for rainbow trout and barramundi in the lake. John Kosovich Wines pours single-vineyard chenin blanc, chardonnay and fortifieds in an atmospheric underground cellar.

Soak up the idyllic weather with a range of outdoor activities. Catch a wave at Busselton, Dunsborough or Yallingup. Cast a line in Geographe Bay for dhufish, snapper and cod. Kids will love fishing for herring and squid off the Busselton Jetty. From June to early December, watch the annual whale migration, as humpback, southern right, minke and blue whales cruise along the coast. Away from the water, trek from

SOUTHERN STARS The Great Southern wine region is a sprawling expanse in the state’s south, encompassing five distinct sub-regions. The coastal town of Albany, just over 400km southeast of Perth, acts as the central hub. Standout cellar doors include Howard Park and MadFish Wines. From August until December, the region is awash with wildflowers. Year-round, cycling, hiking and shipwreck dives await. A 45-minute drive west of Albany, Denmark is flanked by karri forests and picturesque beaches. The Mediterranean climate produces premium chardonnay, sauvignon blanc and pinot noir, best sampled at Singlefile, Forest Hill and Castelli Estate. Make the most of the location by hiring a 4WD for beach adventures, or following the Valley of the Giants Tree Top Walk at Tingledale.

GOURMET GETAWAY No trip to the Great Southern is complete without indulging in the region’s gourmet foods. Visit the Old Marron Farm in Albany for fresh marron and yabbies, or stock up on firstrate fungi at Great Southern Truffles.

HIGH SPIRITS The Swan Valley is also home to a growing band of boutique distilleries. Visit Old Young’s Distillery for handcrafted spirits, including pavlova-flavoured vodka, aromatic gins and a delectable coffee liqueur, or try Canefire Rum at the Great Northern Distillery in Middle Swan.

BOUTIQUE BREWS On the Swan Valley beer front, The Feral Brewing Company is famous across Australia for its inventive brews, including the Watermelon Warhead and Hop Hog American IPA. After you’ve worked your way through the microbrewery’s boundary-pushing range, enjoy a pub-style lunch on the verandah. Ironbark Brewery offers a huge range of craft beers, flavoured with cherry, desert lime or coconut, plus fruity ciders, casual burgers, pizzas and platters.

After leaving his mark on the South Australian wine industry, Margaret River native Julian Langworthy returned to take the helm at Deep Woods Estate, Yallingup. We talk to the award-winning winemaker about returning to his roots.

What brought you back to Margaret River? The desire to come home was pretty strong but the main part of that in a wine sense is I think Margaret River makes the best cabernets in the world, with no reservations. I think when they’re great they can be truly exceptional and, hopefully, can stamp a mark on the world cabernet stage.

What’s the appeal of the Margaret River region? It’s a spectacular place for work-life balance. Natural beauty, great beaches, great food; it really is a kind of winemaking nirvana.

Any advice for wine rookies? Be adventurous. It can seem a bit daunting – the range and varied grape varieties – but drink widely and boldly.

.COOL CLIMATE. Explore the possibilities of a premium wine region where nature and art make an impact

Fast gaining a reputation as the home of premium wine in Australia, cool-climate Tasmania offers a choice of four wine trails that traverse the state, connecting cellar doors, gourmet providores and arty experiences.

TOUR THE TAMAR VALLEY WINE TRAIL The cool-climate Tamar Valley region in Tasmania’s north is known for its crisp sparkling wines, chardonnay, riesling and pinot noir. It’s in easy reach of Launceston and home to more than 30 wineries within driving distance of one another (just be sure to nominate a designated driver). Stars include the cutting-edge restaurant and cellar door at Josef Chromy, the lake-view Wine Room at Jansz, the relaxed river-view setting of Tamar Ridge, and the stunning cellar door and café at Pipers Brook Vineyard,

also home to Ninth Island and Kreglinger Wines. For a culture hit, combine your wine-tasting route with the Tamar Valley Art Trail or, for a wildlife encounter, head to Low Head Coastal Reserve to watch the world’s smallest penguins come in from the sea each night.

Derwent Valley

Combine wine tasting with art along the Tamar Valley Art Trail.

WHAT’S HOT AROUND HOBART The Southern Wine Trail covers the Coal River Valley to the east of Hobart, the Derwent Valley to the west and the Huon Valley to the south. The Coal River Valley, just a 20-minute drive from the city, near the historic village of Richmond, is home to a clutch of premium producers crafting fine pinot noir and chardonnay. Seek out the exceptional wines of Pooley, Tolpuddle, and Domaine A Stoney. Fancy some seafood to pair with all that chardonnay?

NORTHERN EXPOSURE Use Devonport as your base to explore the North Coast’s stunning coastal drives and lush interiors. Sip cool-climate wines at Ghost Rock while you soak up the sea views, or visit Emilia Wines for a taste of Italy in the town of Spreyton. For a pampering getaway, check into Cradle Mountain Lodge for an ultra-luxe stay in the Tasmanian wilderness.

HONEY Tasmania’s pristine oldgrowth forests make for very happy bees, and happy bees equal good honey. Pick up Leatherwood honey from Australian Honey Products or Manuka honey from Blue Hills Honey.

CHEESE With cool weather, clean air and lush pastures, Tasmania is a cheesemaker’s dream. Try artisan cheese at Bruny Island Cheese Company, handmade fromage from The Wicked Cheese Co. and sheep’s cheese by Grandvewe Cheeses.

WHISKY Home to the highest concentration of distilleries in Australia, Tasmania is the whisky state. Sample the handiwork of Bill Lark, ‘Godfather of Australian whisky’, at Lark Distillery, and taste acclaimed single malt at Sullivans Cove.

BEAUTY IN THE EAST The pristine East Coast will leave you on a natural high. If you’re feeling sprightly, follow the Bay of Fires walk, play golf at Freycinet or take an eco-cruise on Wineglass Bay. Looking for something a little more sedate? The brandspanking Devil’s Corner cellar door offers one of the best views in the region – soak up sights of the Hazards mountain range with a glass of pinot in hand.

.SOUTH. .AUSTRALIA. From the world-renowned reds of Barossa Valley to the Mediterranean-style wines of McLaren Vale, South Australia offers endless inspiration for wine lovers. But it’s not just the liquid assets that draw visitors; cycling trails, beaches and regional cuisine complete the holiday package.

BIG NAMES IN THE BAROSSA Just over an hour’s drive northeast of Adelaide, the Barossa Valley is revered for its cellar-worthy shiraz and cabernet sauvignon and its crisp, dry rieslings from the Eden Valley sub-region. To explore this sprawling region in style, take a helicopter flight or a hot-air balloon ride over the vines, or sink into the back seat of a vintage Daimler for a luxurious spin. At the striking new St Hugo complex, tour the vineyard and taste rare back vintages in the underground cellar. Historic Seppeltsfield is home to a contemporary cellar door and acclaimed Fino restaurant, plus an iconic barrel room where you can sample vintage tawny from the year of your birth. At Penfolds, sip Grange in an exclusive tasting, or try your hand at making your own red blend.

GERMAN ACCENT Indulge in the Barossa and Adelaide Hills’ German heritage by trying traditional smoked meats at Linke’s Central Meat Store in Nuriootpa, or sticky bee sting cake from The German Cake Shop in Hahndorf.

A TASTE OF THE MED IN MCLAREN VALE Eco-minded McLaren Vale supports sustainable winemaking. This diverse region is blessed with a Mediterranean climate and is just a 45-minute drive south of

Adelaide. The region’s stalwart, shiraz, is supplemented by Italian varietals such as vermentino, fiano and nero d’Avola. Enjoy a tasting at the recently revamped Wirra Wirra, try natural organic wines at Brash Higgins, or sample sangiovese at Coriole. That Mediterranean bent is reflected in the region’s restaurants, too. Standouts include Star of Greece at Port Willunga and local favourite Russell’s Pizza. The d’Arenberg

Once you’ve filled your car with bottles, the natural wonders of the Limestone Coast are waiting to be explored. Discover the maze of caves at Naracoorte, the relaxed beaches of Robe and the dazzling Blue Lake at Mount Gambier.

ADELAIDE HILLS

An untapped gem less than an hour from Adelaide, Langhorne Creek is home to a clutch of family-run wineries that have been in business for six generations. Taste the region’s history at Bleasdale, Bremerton and Lake Breeze Wines, established in the 1800s. Nearby, paddle at picturesque Lake Alexandrina or catch a wave at one of the Fleurieu Peninsula’s pristine beaches.

The Adelaide Hills, on the eastern fringe of the CBD, makes an ideal day trip. Begin at Penfolds Magill Estate, a sophisticated cellar door and restaurant 15 minutes from the city centre. The cool-climate Hills are home to elegant whites, including chardonnay, sauvignon blanc and sparkling wines, plus refined pinot noir and shiraz. Sample these wines at Shaw and Smith, Petaluma and Nepenthe. Fans of fromage should stop by Woodside Cheese Wrights in Woodside, or Udder Delights in Hahndorf.

CYCLE THE CLARE VALLEY The best way to explore the Clare Valley, 130km north of Adelaide, is via pedal power. Jump on a bicycle to follow the Riesling Trail, a 33km railtrail that runs from Auburn to Barinia. Along the way, sample the region’s famed riesling and shiraz wines at Jim Barry, Sevenhill Cellars and Annie’s Lane. Once you’ve worked up an appetite, take a seat on the verandah at Skillogalee for lunch overlooking the vines.

Take in the natural beauty of Wairarapa via air, land and water with helicopter tours, quad bike

adventures and canoe paddles down the Ruamahanga River, or take the Rapaki Walk, an easy two-hour loop through farmlands and vineyards.

NEW ZEALAND’S CHARDONNAY CAPITAL On the North Island’s eastern edge, the coastal town of Gisborne is famed for its surf beaches and chardonnay. Call into Poverty Bay Wine’s cute cellar door, housed in 120-yearold stables, or enjoy a relaxed

afternoon over pizza and wine in the garden at Wrights Vineyard. Gisborne is also rich with Maori culture. Visit a local Maori village for dance performances, arts and crafts, and traditional hangi meals.
