Villa in Byron Bay
Elevation Byron Bay
Architecturally intriguing, this villa encapsulates the laid-back, beachy attitude of life Down Under. Located in Byron Bay, a quaint coastal town, it’s ideal for an elevated, seaside escape. Chestnut siding on the dwelling’s façade complements the wood-panelled north-facing deck. Stroll to the café across the street in the morning to pick up a flat white and avocado toast—two local delicacies. Towering ceilings create a lofty ambiance with an abundance of daylight. A clean colour palette exudes modern minimalism. The interior living spaces seamlessly connect through an open-concept plan, while fully retractable doors open onto the terrace, establishing an effortless harmony between them both. Potted plants punctuate various areas of each room, bringing the outdoors in. Glossy gunmetal floors flow beneath an array of slate-hued furnishings for a contemporary aesthetic. At the side of the patio, fragrant flowers and mini tropical palms flourish in a small, landscaped garden. A glass partition separates the loggia from the edge of the pool, allowing an unobstructed view. Swim a few laps in the cerulean water before warming up in the steamy hot tub. When the stars illuminate the night sky, pop open a bottle of chilled champagne and gaze up at the glittering galaxies while laying back in the sunken lounge. Inside, plump sofas provide ample space for the whole crew to gather around and watch a movie or simply converse about the day’s excursions. An easy walk into town, you can peruse surf-inspired boutiques, vibrant pubs, and a string of savory restaurants.  Copyright © Luxury Retreats. All rights reserved.

Villa in Gerringong
Ocean Farm
Feel the warmth from the crackling fire while you gaze out over the moonlit ocean at this modern farmhouse in Gerringong. Situated 5-minutes from town, and just over an hour from Sydney, this coastal villa enjoys complete seclusion. Wander the on-site trails, explore 200 acres of rainforest, and meet grazing livestock on your way. Follow the coastal walking track, and you’ll be in town in no time. Your surfboard won’t look out of place leaning against the wood-post fence around this farm. In fact, just beyond that fence, a grass track leads to Werri Beach. After a morning swim, head back to Ocean Farm for espresso on the terrace. Work on your tan in a sun lounger by the pool’s edge. Or, enjoy the sea breeze from inside while you catch a rugby game on the projector screen. For lunch, fire up the barbecue in the courtyard and play a round of foosball while you’re waiting for the burgers to get that perfect char. Later, sip local wine while you watch the sunset over endless sea views. The point breaks at either end of Werri Beach are perfect for first-time surfers. In between, a sandy stretch of calm waters awaits for family swimming. And, the shops on the beach’s edge are known for their delicious fish and chips. If you’d rather keep dry, spend your days touring the countryside, visiting the vineyards for wine tasting, and hiking along the rugged escarpment of Gerringong.     Copyright © Luxury Retreats.

All about Australia

Enjoy Natural Wonders with an Australian Vacation

Endowed with countless natural wonders, unique wildlife, breathtaking beaches, cosmopolitan cities, and wide expanses of outback, Australia is sure to take your breath away. If you’re basing yourself in glamorous Sydney, you might be keen to explore the beautiful wilderness on your doorstep and escape for the day to one of New South Wales’ (NSW) most attractive pockets.

Day trips from Sydney

From the whitest shores in the world to ancient Aboriginal rock engravings, and exquisite wine tours in Australia's oldest vineyards, NSW begs for a road trip (or two). Ready for some unspoiled beauty?

Invigorate Your Senses at the Blue Mountains

With its crisp mountain air, glorious canyon hikes, and hidden waterfalls, Blue Mountain National Park is a natural oasis that’s only a 90-minute drive from Sydney. Once there, you’ll notice the azure-colored haze that gives these mountain ranges their name. The reason? The area is packed with eucalyptus trees, which emit a fragrant oil. When mixed with the water vapor and dust, the oil creates a mesmerizing blue aura.

Whether you hop on a glass-bottomed cable car to catch panoramic views of Katoomba Falls, ride the world’s steepest funicular down to the Jamieson Valley, or venture into the magical Jenolan Caves, this gorgeous site will satisfy your craving for adventure.

Savor Exquisite Vintages in Hunter Valley

Did you know that NSW is home to the oldest wine region in all of Australia? Only two hours from Sydney, Hunter Valley is a wine aficionados haven, producing rare vintages and the finest Sémillon and Shiraz you can get your hands on. Because the entire region is brimming with grape vines, you’ll be spoiled for options.

Discover Australia’s Green Countryside in Kangaroo Valley and Berry

Boasting some of the greenest pastures in NSW, the charmingly named Kangaroo Valley is surrounded by farmland, a balmy rainforest, and wild fauna. The region invites you to bask in the quiet serenity of its verdant surroundings, populated by wombats, wild platypus, and the expected roos. To explore, rent a bicycle and venture along the paths towards the valley’s main village. Craving a little something sweet? Many locals are proud to call the Kangaroo Valley Pie Shop the home of the best pies in Australia! If you’re eager to taste them for yourself, make sure to arrive early before the freshly made treats sell out for the day.

Combine your trip to the valley with a stop in Berry, a charming historic village in Australia’s southern highlands. The town will afford you the chance to enjoy nostalgic pleasantries such as horseback riding and market shopping, as well as opportunities to brush up on the arts with a visit to the Berry Museum. The village’s biggest claim to fame goes to its donut van, opened over 55 years ago. Visit this tasty institution for freshly fried indulgences rolled in cinnamon sugar.

Traipse Through Snowy-White Sands in Jervis Bay

While there’s no denying that Sydney has some pretty spectacular beaches, finding a strip of sand to yourself can be a challenge. If you’re willing to go that extra mile (trust us, it’s worth it) you might be lucky enough to sprawl out some secluded shores.

Follow the coast three hours south to discover Jervis Bay, home to Hyames Beach, the record holder of the world’s whitest shores. And with the idyllic Booderee National Park just behind, the area is paradise on earth for nature lovers. After you’ve waded in the turquoise waters and snorkeled above the marine life, head into the nearby town of Huskisson to experience its emerging foodie scene centered around local produce and fresh fish.

Dive Into History and Saltwater Pools at the Royal National Park

A mere hour from Sydney lies a national park so stunning that it was blessed by the Queen herself. With its Aboriginal rock engravings dating back to over 1000 years, the National Royal Park is the second oldest park of its kind in the world. Inland from its 20 gorgeous mile stretch of beaches you'll find subtropical forests, deep river valleys, and thrilling plateaus worthy of a hike. Make sure to bring your walking shoes — this natural wonder is best explored by foot!

If you visit anytime from May to November, you just might be lucky enough to spot a family of humpback whales. What’s more? The beaches here are deliciously secluded, so you can finally experience that “deserted shore” fantasy.

Discover Luxury with our Vacation Rentals in Australia

To experience the beauty of NSW while making the most of Australia’s flagship city, a Sydney vacation rental  is your best bet. From here, you’ll be close the all the excitement of the city and perfectly positioned for a beautiful day trip when the urge strikes.

Directly across the Harbour, our gorgeous rentals in Mosman offer the pleasant intimacy of a residential neighborhood and the convenience of being close to the big sights. Notable fine dining options are scattered around the area, and if you want to venture further, the Mosman ferry can transport you to the downtown district in a short amount of time.
