The Christmas holidays are fast approaching and that can only mean one thing: time off to escape the real world and let the whole year melt away. Whether you’ve got the kids in tow, you’re looking for a romantic getaway, you’re keen for a party with all your mates or you just want a bit of adventure before you return to the daily grind, we’ve got some great ideas for the best holiday getaways.
Bliss Out in a Beach House
Gather up the family or get your friends together and rent yourself a holiday home by sea. You can nab yourself a rustic little shack far from civilisation or a ritzy beach house in the swankiest seaside suburbs in the country. Whatever your style, tastes and budget, there’s an ocean escape to suit everybody.
Spend your holidays soaking up the sun, splashing in the shallows, tearing up waves or fishing off the shore. There’s nothing quite as relaxing as having nowhere to be but enjoying the serenade of crashing waves and cool water lapping at your toes.
Take to the Seas on a Luxury Cruise
A cruise holiday is the perfect way to spend your holidays in an all-in-one travel experience. Visit exotic locations, enjoy action-packed on-board activities, five-star entertainment, luxurious accommodation, world-class health spas and fitness centres and so much more – all rolled in to one!
There’s a cruise for every traveller, some for families that include kids clubs, lots of family-friendly entertainment and relaxing activities for parents when the kids are being kept busy. There are some for party-hungry singles with lots of social activities and off-the-hook nightlife. There are some tailored toward the luxurious romantic getaway and even cruises just for the more mature traveller.

Cosy Camping in the Great Outdoors
For those who want to get back to nature or pack some outdoor adventure into their time off, it doesn’t get much better than a camping holiday in the great outdoors. It’s a holiday option that can be done on a tight budget or tweaked toward luxury. From camper-vans to camping trailers to tents big and small, camping can be as simplistic or comfortable as you make it. It’s the best possible way to disconnect from hassles of daily life and enjoy the natural world around you.
City Slicking in the Big Smoke
If dirt and sand are not your thing and your ideal getaway involves five star hotels, gourmet dining, boutique shopping, late night lounging and plenty of glamour and luxury then why not take to the city and indulge in all the finest offerings of your favourite capital. A city getaway is the perfect way to immerse yourself in class and culture, with so much to do and see both day and night, from art galleries to day spas, shopping centres to theatres, bars to nightclubs, restaurants to street vendors – you’ll never run out of new experiences.
Explore the Country’s Finest Wineries
If wine is your one true love, spend your holidays touring the wine country and indulging in as many tastings as you can handle. If you’re new to the idea, why not take a wine course and learn the ropes of wine appreciation. Most wine regions are full of incredible restaurants and luxurious accommodation options too, and often offer lots of lovely outdoor activities to enjoy between winery visits.
With such an array of spectacular holiday ideas, there’s no excuse to waste your time off at home. Start planning your holiday celebrations now!
