The long weekend brings extra opportunities for relaxation, catch-ups or adventure. If you're heading away this Easter long weekend you're lucky enough to have four days straight to broaden your travel further. With enough time to do all of the above, packing for a range of activities is essential. But in the rush to get out the door after work it can be hard to gather enough options without overpacking. That's why, in the lead up to this long weekend, I've put together a formula for packing that will narrow your wardrobe down in no time...

Launceston travel guide

10 Apr Your Quick Guide to Exploring Picturesque Launceston

Launceston often plays little sister to capital city Hobart but is not to be overlooked during a trip to Tasmania. This smaller riverside city offers a quintessential country experience with its mix of Georgian facades and sprawling farmlands. Located on the north coast it is the perfect spot to commence or concluded a trip around the island state. Launceston's attractions range from boutique shopping and wine tasting to rock climbing and river cruising. With so many experiences on offer if can be hard to know what to prioritise. And when your holiday is limited you want to know that any time you set aside here will be worth it. After spending two weeks in Tasmania I found Launceston to be the perfect summary of everything the state has to offer. Here are my favourite finds in the quaint city that make for a balanced trip...

Packing List Tasmania

27 Mar The Best Items to Pack for Tasmania

Tasmania's rugged landscape is not only is a major drawcard for nature lovers but an insight into its dramatic weather conditions. All year round, Tasmania can be quite cold, with some pleasantly warm days sneaking in around summer. Visitor numbers boom over the new year period, with pristine beaches a big part of the island state's appeal. A common mistake made by summer travellers is to pack a beachy wardrobe without a Tassie-proof contingency plan. Add to this, a mix of adventure and 5-star experiences, and you've got the ultimate packing conundrum. After spending two weeks in Tassie and experiencing everything from campervan cook-ups to waterfront dining, I narrowed down the key pieces for tackling any Tasmanian travel experience.

Waterfront Accommodation Hobart

02 Mar Visual Tour of Somerset on the Pier Hobart

Hobart is a location synonymous with the coastal lifestyle. Even if you've never visited you've most likely heard of Constitution Dock, the spot where Sydney to Hobart winners celebrate their race finish. It made sense then, for our first trip to Hobart, to seek out accommodation close to the waterfront. Somerset on the Pier goes one better by putting you right on the water. The set of serviced apartments occupies a 1930's building along Elizabeth Street Pier. It's proximity to the waterfront precincts and unique view of Sullivan's Cove stood out to me as a great spot to base our activities from. Location aside, there are other benefits to staying in a serviced apartment too, which I'll discuss below. Throw in some fresh seafood sold straight from the boat and you've got every ocean-lovers perfect location...

Four Seasons Lisbon Review

27 Feb Video Tour of the Breathtaking Four Seasons in Lisbon

I've been really excited about sharing this post with you since our visit to Portugal last year. Aside from the usual thrill I get from capturing a new destination, our visit to Lisbon had the added excitement of a video project at Four Seasons Hotel Ritz. This is a hotel that epitomises luxury and for us videographers, offers up beautiful shots around every corner. Having explored the lower part of town in the days prior, a visit to Four Seasons allowed us to enjoy the spoils of 5-star accommodation in the cosmopolitan part of town. In fact, we barely left the hotel at all in our two nights there. Instead, choosing to take in the sunset from the rooftop running track (yes, you read that right) and living the fluffy robe life. That said, it's time to experience the most opulent hotel in Lisbon for yourself…
