Lauri & Geoff
Lauri & Geoff booked a Canada / Alaska trip organised by your exclusive Owners-only travel agency, Travel Club by Wyndham. Here’s an excerpt of the email they sent us when they returned home:
The trip was fantastic. The scenery is wonderful, the people friendly although they had no idea what we were saying. We may all speak English but not the same way.
Vancouver is a vibrant city with lots to see. We went to Granville Island, took a harbour tour, walked Stanley Park and went to Grouse Mountain. While on Grouse Mountain we took a helicopter flight over the region – fantastic. Continue reading
Owner Pic of the Week – skiing in Wanaka!
As foster carers of 5 children under 9, holidays are somewhat important to us, as you can imagine! Our Wyndham Ownership has been one of the best decisions we’ve ever made. Not only does it ensure we take those all important holidays, we have seen places we would never had normally dreamt of seeing. Continue reading
The scenic lake at WorldMark Resort Ballarat – click to enlarge the panorama!
Living in Melbourne, WorldMark Resort Ballarat (VIC) is our second home. Each time we go we take a photo of our (currently three year old) daughter standing outside the big beautiful door at the entrance. It’ll be great to see how the door doesn’t seem as gigantic as the years progress! Her name’s Alice so it’s her very own wonderland!
Strolling around the lake on our last visit in May, I took this photo using my iPhone. I used no filter or editing. It really “reflects” the beauty of this tranquil place. I guarantee you’ll love it as much as we do.

What a start to a perfect holiday at Wyndham Dunsborough (WA)—a mid-air flight proposal en-route Melbourne to Perth.
We started our long-planned holiday with the family of 4 (self, wife Tina, son Steven, & daughter Sarah) along with my mum (nanna) Jane, boyfriend Fabian & girlfriend Rania. This was a holiday to Perth and then a drive down to Wyndham Dunsborough, in the Margaret River country. We had heard from another Wyndham Owner that this was a great place to go to and stay. Our family have been Owners now for about 5 years, and have thoroughly enjoyed our Ownership in all aspects—–the resorts are great, well planned out, close to shops, attractions, activities, etc; the staff are most welcoming and helpful—always; the benefits of Ownership takes us to various spots not only around Australia, but even overseas. We have had the pleasure of staying at Los Angeles, Cairns, Tasmania, Sydney, Ballarat, Port Macquarie, and now Dunsborough. Continue reading
At Ramada Port Douglas’ Tree Bar & Grill restaurant
Very early on a dull Auckland morning, we boarded our plane and headed off to the sunny climes of Cairns & Port Douglas. What a welcome relief it was to be welcomed by temperatures in the late twenties!! We got our car and headed off to the fantastic resort at the Ramada in Port Douglas, where we were made very welcome. We played in the pool, chatted with the resident cockatoo and explored the wonderful facilities and local beach, only minutes from the resort. Continue reading
Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise in Spring in the Rockies in Canada
We recently holidayed at WorldMark Vancouver - The Canadian (Canada) and WorldMark Seattle - The Camlin (North America) after cruising from Shanghai to Seward in Alaska and then on the Vancouver.
It is our second stay in The Canadian. We had a most enjoyable stay in both places and also toured the Rockies.

Tandem bungee jumping in Taupo!
I have recently experienced two very different weekends at WorldMark Resort Rotorua (North Island, New Zealand). The first was an adrenalin filled two days with my niece who was visiting from Wales and the second was a relaxing weekend catching up with a friend from Auckland. Accommodation at the WorldMark Resort in Rotorua made both weekends extra special – the apartments were warm, well maintained and spacious and the staff friendly and helpful. They even had the travel blanket I had left behind on the earlier visit ready for me to pick up! Continue reading
Fun in the mud!
What does one do to keep warm in Melbourne in winter?
Fly to Fiji.
My wife and I, together with one of our daughters and one of our 13 grandchildren did precisely that. We left Melbourne at 9.30am on the 30th June 2013 with the temperature touching 4 degrees and arrived in Fiji at 4.15pm (Fiji time) with the temperature at 30 degrees. Continue reading
Sealy Lookout, Coffs harbour
Originally we joined with TrendWest owned by WorldMark in 2003. Over the years we have utilised our Credits through the hiring of a car (Australia, Canada) for accommodation (Italy- Colie Val de Elsa, Thailand- Phuket, Canada- Banff, Vietnam- Hoi-An, Mexico- Cancun) and cruises through ICE (Canada and Alaska).
Owned now by Wyndham Vacation Resorts Asia Pacific, we recently accessed accommodation at Coffs Harbour staying at the Wyndham Coffs Harbour – Treetops resort and WOW what a stay! My husband and I had a fabulous time. From the beginning we knew it was going to be memorable, the staff at reception were so helpful and polite. Continue reading
Swimming with whale sharks at Ningaloo Reef, WA (click to enlarge)
Alan and I recently stayed at the lovely boutique style Wyndham Outram Perth (WA).
What a lovely city Perth is, also a little win at the casino put a smile on my face.
We then traveled up north to Exmouth / Coral Bay to swim with the whale sharks in Ningaloo Reef, an outstanding experience to help celebrate my 50th birthday.
