This story is a little different to others I have read in Destinations magazine. They generally started with a flight or a weekend road trip. This one starts with a plan to spend 7 weeks camping the East Coast of Australia with 2 kids, travelling from Townsville (Far North QLD) to Melbourne (VIC) then taking in Tassie for good measure.
We decided to break the trip up along the way by staying at a few of our Wyndham resorts to recharge & take a break from the everyday fun of setting up & packing up camp. In hindsight, that was a fabulous decision!

As a long-time Owner and a big fan of Wyndham, I’ve had yet another brilliant experience with this Club.
Just over the weekend I went to Melbourne for a rare girls weekend with 2 of my dear friends. We had planned this for 9 months so our expectation was high. This trip was finally a child free weekend to see the Australian Open Tennis Championships and do some sightseeing in a city I hadn’t been to in 5 years.
Knowing that Wyndham Hotel Melbourne (VIC) was new was really exciting as I know the standard would be at the usual high rate and I wasn’t disappointed.
This picture was taken recently when we travelled to Wyndham Resort & Spa Dunsborough (WA) for my son’s 2nd birthday in December 2015 and captured this amazing sculpture of big rocks at the Canal Rocks with spectacular skies and green hills.
It reminds me of old times war histories where they were shooting film for tv shows such as Robin Hood.
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.

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.
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.
