WOW! We have just returned from our first Club Tour with Travel Club by Wyndham – Tastes of Tasmania – and can happily declare it to have been a most enjoyable adventure experience. WorldMark Owners from various states of Australia and from New Zealand with friends gathered in Launceston where we met up with our tour escort, Ruan Myers, and our very experienced coach driver David, to commence seven full days together experiencing the beautiful scenery and delightful tastes of Tasmania.
In the 8 weeks time that we travelled throughout Europe, I took 8000 photos!!! Yes, 8000. We stayed over 4 weeks in Finland and then almost 4 weeks in Paris – Switzerland – Austria and Italy. So there were lots photo opportunities. It was amazing holiday!
I had my Nikon D3300 and iPhone 6, used both.
My brother and I travelled to Dunsborough in Western Australia to dive the Busselton Jetty.
Busselton Jetty is the longest remaining wooden pylon jetty in the southern hemisphere. It is now a marine sanctuary and is host to a great cross section of Western Australian marine life. The clarity at this time of year is very accommodating for underwater photography. The photos are a snapshot of some of the characters you will find should you come to dive here. The jetty is also one of the few dives you can do without a boat. The jetty has dive platforms and easy ladders for entry and exit. The city council here has really done this to perfection. There is even a train to take you and your gear to the end and return you to the car park after the dive.

Nestled in the Margaret River wine region in the South West of WA means there is so much more that can be enjoyed once the dives are done. All the staff at Wyndham Resort & Spa Dunsborough were truly amazing. Continue reading
In December, I travelled to Wyndham Seven Mile Beach in Hobart (TAS) with a friend. The resort was very impressive with the ocean over the road.
My reason for going to Tasmania was to visit the lavender farm at Nabowla (the Bridestowe Lavender Estate), east of Launceston. After our arrival, we reassessed our itinerary, realising that Nabowla was a 7 hour round trip, and only one driver (might rethink that idea).
Had an amazing week at Ramada Port Douglas (QLD) where I got to celebrate my 40th birthday. What more could I ask for?
It was peaceful, relaxing and I managed to cross off items from my bucket list such as Cape Tribulation, Mossman Gorge and Port Douglas itself. The floating in the pool while watching the cricket final was pretty close to the best part of the holiday.
Thank you to the resort staff as they were always friendly and extremely helpful.
Until next time as I will be back again.

Peter and Beth, and extended family, spent 14 days at the fabulous Wyndham Resort Denarau Island, Fiji, in July this year. This is the family’s sixth annual visit.
Over the six years we have added to the family, and extended the holiday as we simply don’t want to go home again! We now consider ourselves seasoned professional frog racers, bula bingo players, kayakers and water aerobics athletes which make up an important part of our holiday schedule!
When the taxi pulled up outside WorldMark Vancouver – The Canadian on Hornby Street in Vancouver, a lady appeared on the pavement. I heard her say “Welcome to WorldMark, you must have just got off the cruise ship”. The WorldMark receptionist had looked out the window and seen the taxi pull up and saw us get out of the taxi. She came out into the street to greet us. This friendly receptionist made us feel most welcome.
During my stay in Vancouver, I read in the Club’s Destinations magazine that belonging to WorldMark is like having relatives in 71 countries. This is how it felt when we were greeted in Vancouver. We had the feeling of being welcomed home by a long lost cousin.
