We have investigated and put them on our travel lists below. Getaway hits our screens tomorrow night on Channel 9 from 7:30pm – watch to add to your wanderlust wish lists!

Bruny Island Walk – Tasmania

Bruny Island Walk - Tasmania

A large portion of Bruny Island is comprised of the South Bruny National Park and State Forest Reserves. It’s a perfect island for walking – stroll to Penguin Island from Adventure Bay and climb along the crest of the sea crags on Fluted Cape; take the loop track around the Labillardiere Peninsula and picnic along the way; take a beach walk on one of the island’s many stretches of untracked sand.

Brumby Riding – NSW Snowy Mountains

Discover the breathtaking beauty of Australia’s legendary high country on a horse riding adventure. Home of the wild brumby, the magnificent NSW Snowy Mountains offers horse riding tours for all levels of experience.

Rides vary from one hour to full day and multi-day treks, where you’re able to camp under the bright stars at night. All horseback tours are led by experienced local guides. You can also bring your own horse and take advantage of the stables across the region. Giddyup! 

Granite Island – South Australia

Granite Island
Home to the magical little penguins and the majestic southern right whale, this island is characterised by huge granite boulders tinged with orange lichen. Take a short stroll or horse tram ride over the wooden causeway that connects the mainland at Victor Harbor to Granite Island Recreation Park.

Enjoy the coastal scenery and discover the island’s interesting history along the Kaiki Walk or go fishing from the jetty, or causeway. You may even spot a southern right whale between June and October.

Jamala Wildlife Lodge – Canberra

Jamala Wildlife Lodge

Located within the grounds of the National Zoo and Aquarium, Jamala boasts three 5-star, African styled accommodation hubs, specifically designed to provide guests with a unique and interactive experience with some of the zoo’s most amazing residents.

Choose to spend the night only meters away from Lions, Bears and Tigers in the Jungle Bungalows, or relax on the balcony of the Giraffe Tree House as you marvel at the size and beauty of your new giant friend.
