If you were stinging to get lost among the vines and boutique hotels of wine country in 2020, then make Victoria’s Mornington Peninsula (Bunurong) the place to plonk.
If restaurant-hopping was your goal (respect), then stay put in a sun-bathed Brisbane (Turrbal) hotel and treat. yo. damn. self.
MAIN BREAK, MARGARET RIVER
Margaret River is loaded to the brim with surfing hot spots, most notably Main Break. This offshore reef isn’t for the faint-hearted, with super-heavy hollowness, bowls, bumps and a powerful swell mixing up to be a full-on surfing experience, even for the most experienced. If you’re feeling out of your depth, journey to the car park vantage point to watch the pros tackle some 20-foot waves.
PREVELLY BAY, MARGARET RIVER
Home to all kinds of watersports, Prevelly Bay is popular among longboarders, surfers, kite surfers, swimmers and sunbathers. Exuding a true beach atmosphere, this bay is at the heart of surfing culture in Western Australia, conjuring spins of up to six metres. Beginners need not attempt these crushing waves, with some surfers even opting for surf helmets.
