Places to Visit This Winter
Frost lined cabin windows and crackles echoing from the fireplace are elements of the cooler weather that we love. Just because it's winter doesn't mean you can't still venture out and enjoy a weekend away.
Inspired by our latest campaign, Highland, the Estelle team have teamed up to create our winter destination wish list.
Southern Highlands – New South Wales
Just two hours from Sydney, the Southern Highlands are perfect for a weekend getaway.
From historic townships like Berrima, with some of the oldest pubs in Australia, to gourmet food and wine destinations in Moss Vale, you’ll already be booking your next visit before you’ve left.
The Macedon Ranges – Victoria
Leave the rush of the city behind and indulge in a spa weekend spent rewinding and resetting.
Recharge and feel the stress melt away at the Hepburn Bathhouse and Spa or soak in the scenes in the wooden tubs overlooking Lake Daylesford at the Lake House. The Macedon Ranges is all about relaxation.
Known for some of the country’s best producers of Pinot Noir, if you’re after that weekend sitting by the fireplace with a red, then the Macedon Ranges are for you.
Adelaide Hills– South Australia
Close to Adelaides' City centre, you don’t have to go far to escape the city for the lush green rolling Adelaide Hills.
Lose yourself in nature at Mount Lofty Botanic Garden where the Camellias are in bloom.
Home to more than 60 wineries and 40 cellar doors it's a wine lovers dream, but if wine isn't your thing, a trip to one of the many chocolateries serving hot chocolate is the perfect way to warm yourself up after a day of exploring the region.
Huon Valley – Tasmania
When we think of winter destinations, Tasmania often comes to mind. Marketing themselves as a go-to destination in Winter, there's plenty to discover in the (sometimes) forgotten state.
Fully immerse yourself in the season by exploring the wild and wintery south and what’s more south than the Huon Valley?
Once known as the apple growing hub of the state, its apple heritage has shifted to liquid form with a range of cideries for you to explore.
A destination known for fresh produce, think long lazy lunches at one of the many eateries that serves up seasonal farm to table feats. For the ultimate food lover, you can become a MasterChef and take a cooking class at the Farmhouse Kitchen, where you can learn how to cook a range of Southern Italian recipes.
We are spoilt for choice when it comes to winter weekends away in Australia! This was front of mind as Estelle created our high winter collection. Now is your chance to incorporate some Highland into your winter wardrobe and weekend itinerary.
