This is the definitive guide to all the best places & authentic experiences across Australia from the outback to the beach, from its casually confident cities to its ancient indigenous culture.
It offers insider tips on how to engage with Australia’s remarkable landscapes, its idiosyncratic locals & its utterly bizarre wildlife.
It is NOT YOUR TYPICAL APP:
* It is opinionated, jam-packed with info & pragmatic advice you won’t find elsewhere.
* It is a big app for a big continent, but it is not encyclopaedic. Rather it distils the best. Once a destination has made the cut, it gives you everything you need to enjoy it.
* It actually contains MINI APPS WITHIN THE APP. Many entries cover entire regions with bullet points on what to do, where to stay, eat & drink.
* When a resort, restaurant, or individual adventure is outstanding it gets its own entry with in-depth opinions on how best to enjoy it.
A few mechanics:
• I have organised entries by a range of tags, including States, On the Water, Outback, Luxury and more. Don’t miss the Hidden Gems!
• There are heaps of hyperlinks to videos & websites for more info.
• Under hours, I give opening hours PLUS the best season to visit. Australia's contrary Southern Hemisphere seasons can be confusing for visitors from the Northern Hemisphere.
Finally, I have avoided overly commercial destinations, which you can easily find with generic guides (or just follow the tourist crowd).
The App will be updated regularly (at no extra charge) as more great destinations emerge.

Now in Melbourne for 14 years, I love to interpret the real Australia for visitors. Avoiding tourist traps in favour of authentic travel experiences that distil the essence of place, I prefer active trips offering immersion in Australia's distinctive landscapes, its indigenous culture & where the local's eat & drink. I prefer my luxury digs removed from celebrity glitz & I've created great family trips with my husband & 3 daughters.
