With border closures, lockdowns and travel bans having shaped the last year of our lives, visiting family abroad has been a challenge.

You could enjoy a long weekend exploring the wineries of the Barossa Valley, book a beach break on Hamilton Island, or tick off some of Australia’s major sights like the ancient Daintree Rainforest and magnificent Uluru.
Or, if you’re seeking an adventure, you could pack up a campervan and go travelling for two weeks. What better way to reconnect with friends and family than a road trip? You can explore Western Australia and witness epic sunsets and discover deserted beaches. Or hop over to Tasmania and discover the island’s incredible food scene and outstanding national parks.
