Natural Attractions and National Parks


As any local will attest to, we’re in the midst of a long-term love affair with our coastline, but every now and then we put the car into cruise control, the body on ‘breathe’ and point that sat nav due west. We head to the hills with a picnic packed, travelling ribbon-like roads through a canvas of hills dotted with vineyards, waterfalls, rambling gardens and whispering streams.

Whether you’re looking to recharge the batteries, shift into a healthier gear, get a good dose of nature or just kick back and relax – we’ll have you dialling downtime, in no time. Switch off the stress and slip into holiday mode with an invigorating escape in our blissful backyard. A velvet cloak is waiting to surround you in an oasis of serene emerald green. Welcome to our heavenly hinterland.
