Four unique Aussie hollies to help you get your jollies!

  • by

What sort of holiday has you grinning from ear to ear? Something involving the indulgent pleasures of food, music and art? Or perhaps the semi-masochistic joy of pushing body and mind to the limit? From Big Smoke to Gold Coast to Red Centre, the lucky country is turning on events guaranteed to delight – no matter how you get your jollies… 

There will be plenty of happy feet tapping away at the Blues on Broadbeach Music Festival on the Gold Coast from 26-29 May where you can hear local and international talent at various venues in a village-like atmosphere.

Flip a steak in the BBQ area at the Beach Haven Resort Gold Coast, before a bubble in the spa.

If your mantra is “It’s a fine line between pleasure and pain”, head to the MTB Enduro in Alice Springs from 16-20 May. Along a variety of mountain bike trails, you’ll experience some truly beautiful scenery as you grin and bear the seven stages, including a hill sprint in the middle of town and a 90km journey through the Eastern McDonnell Ranges. Mmm hurts so good!

After all that thigh burning and muscle churning, relax in your suite’s jetted tub before a protein-hit at the Juicy Rump restaurant of Lasseters Hotel Casino.

Let someone else’s kitchen rule while you wrap your laughing gear around all the goodies at the Good Food and Wine Show in Melbourne from 3-5 June. Celebrity chefs will hold live demonstrations and master classes not to mention all the scrummy cupcakes, coffee, wine, beer and more floating around.

If you’re inspired to whip up a masterpiece, the Mantra Southbank Melbourne Apartment does have kitchens—or stick to cocktails at the bar instead.

Laugh in winter’s face at the Vivid Sydney festival from 27 May to 13 June. Rug up and wander around the city to see buildings with unique and awe-inspiring light projections, warm up to some musical performances and spark the mind at lively discussions and debates.

Just the view of Darling Harbour from the Oaks Goldsbrough Apartments Sydney is enough to tempt.
