Getaway: Berkeley River in the remote east Kimberley

Waking up in your villa, having an outdoor shower in the early-morning sun and then wandering out to the deck with a capsule coffee to see the shimmering blue Timor Sea is a spectacular way to start a day.

Finally, after years of hearing about its splendour, I’ve made it to the Kimberley. And I’ve found a magnificent way to do it. Berkeley River Lodge, a luxury resort and my home for four days, sits at the junction of the Timor Sea and the Berkeley River, in the remote east Kimberley.

The great Boxster escape to Mornington Peninsula

It was a bit like the Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon movie The Trip: two old friends driving (in our case in a new Porsche 718 Boxster) from winery to restaurant, riffing about life, food and wine – three topics with a lot of range.

Experience tropical cool on a getaway to Bali

It was in Bali while sitting by the pool with a vodka tonic and a lime (50 cents for a good-sized bag of limes) that I read Melbourne was so cold that day you might as well be sitting in your fridge. It was a great line and a sobering reminder of why we had come to Bali for a two-week escape.

Meet the Melbourne chefs leading Bali's culinary revolution

It’s Saturday night in Seminyak and the tribes of visitors to Bali are facing the biggest decision of the day: which of the many brilliant restaurants to eat in.

At Movida Bali, Frank Camorra’s newest version of his growing Spanish restaurant empire, diners are settling into their tiger prawns cooked in cider and Lombok soft-shell crab while George Benson’s Give Me the Night plays on the turntable.

Road trip: Escape to Mt Buller for the weekend

The road trip is half the fun.

That’s what the girls said anyway as we loaded up our car for the weekend, a sleek new Infiniti QX70, and hit the Hume Highway heading to Mt Buller for the opening weekend.

The girls programmed the Bluetooth for some tunes and settled in for the excitement of heading back to Melbourne’s favourite mountain.

Enjoy the ultimate spa retreat country getaway in Hepburn Springs

It might have been on my second pinot while gazing from my balcony over the little township of Hepburn Springs on an autumnal Friday evening that I realised fully why so many people from Melbourne have moved here. It is a stunning part of Victoria, and just an hour-and-a-half’s drive away.

Mornington Peninsula: Road trip to relaxation

There is something deeply appropriate about hitting the highway in a stylish new Mercedes GLC 250d and heading for one of Victoria’s most stylish wineries, Crittenden Estate at Dromana, which was also our digs for the night.

Getaway: Orpheus Island

Orpheus Island – even the name conjures the exotic and luxurious. And it is, but it’s much more. The product is just like it says on the box – white beaches (a dramatic tide reveals quite a bit of the seabed each day), clear blue water, palm trees and a very large dose of serenity.

Falls Creek Victoria: How to Do a Ski Trip with Teenage Kids

I found a way to sit with my teenage son and (almost) teenage daughter and talk to them for 11 hours about a wide range of topics with no hand-held device involved. I know, you're thinking - how did I do that? Here's how: pack a car with warm clothes, hop into it at 4.20am and drive towards Falls Creek.

Bali's New Wave Chefs

What are the odds? You go to Bali to discover how Australians are transforming the island with their fine food, energetic hospitality and hip bars, and you're match-fit for the big nosh-up when you're felled by the band of pain across the top of the stomach known to generations of Australians as Bali belly.

Wanaka Wonderland

Luxury digs, an open fire, a glass of organic pinot noir, lamb rack with artichoke purée… the après-ski action in New Zealand’s Wanaka is just as exciting as the skiing.

Heaven Sent

As you float in Trisara’s 45-metre pool on the edge of the sea, or have your second latte while watching the small waves crash on the white sands or retire to your private villa and read a book while ordering lunch, it strikes you: Belinda Carlisle of the Go-Gos was right. Heaven really is a place on Earth.

Bali's Posh Nosh

When I first went to Bali in 1983, most meals were had in small warungs for a few dollars. No budgets were blown, but minds weren’t either. There were few fine-dining experiences. Twenty-five years later, eating on the island is one of the great joys. The fine dining on Bali is now an attraction for people who want a relaxing holiday with great food.

First Resort

Like most Melburnians at the end of August, a slightly pallid Peter Wilmoth needed to thaw out. So, taking pity on him, The Weekly Review ordered him to fly to Hamilton Island to do some good old-fashioned reporting. Oh, and lying in the sun.
