EAT: Taste of Tasmania

The Taste of Tasmania returns this summer (28 December to 3 January) to celebrate the state’s famous produce. Up to 70 stalls will line Hobart’s spectacular waterfront to showcase the state’s best seafood, cheeses, cool climate wines, craft beers and boutique ciders. Serious foodies will love tasting corners like The Atrium – designed as a whimsical garden and mad hatters tea party.

STAY: Aloft Perth

W Hotel’s first foray into Australia brings uber-stylish and ultra-modern accommodation to our shores in the form of Aloft Perth. Opening earlier this year, the hotel boasts trademark drawcards like sweeping city and Swan River views, but it’s the design and modern luxuries that set it apart. Think robotic butlers, wireless room keys via your iPhone and copious amounts of vibrant local artwork.

DRINK: Zephyr

Zephyr, the sky bar at Hyatt Regency Sydney, is the only bar in the Southern Hemisphere to add a levitating cocktail to its menu. This gravity-defying masterpiece is made from the highest quality ingredients and will set you back $60. But, with panoramic views of Sydney’s beautiful Darling Harbour and possibly the most Instagram-worthy cocktail on this side of the planet, it’s worth it.

PLAY: Australian Open

Melbourne goes mad for the Australian Open and On Court Seating is the crème de la crème. These twelve exclusive VIP seats offer an unforgettable, adrenaline-charged opportunity to watch the world’s best players battle courtside at Rod Laver Arena, while sitting just metres away from the action (and most likely beside an international celebrity or two). See it from 15 to 28 January.
