This is a great place for a healthy lunch at Warringah Mall when there are so many other fast food outlets around. Fresh salads and fruits are beautifully presented and with it backing onto a fruit shop it makes it seem all the more healthy!
Pittwater is full of beautiful parks that make great venues for weddings. You can hire these out very simply by contacting Pittwater Council who are very helpful with the process. There is even more information about this on their website as they are so commonly used for weddings and events.
Everyone I know seems to get their wedding dresses at Marry Me and for good reason. They have such a vast array of designers and styles that it suits so many people, rather than going to one designer who doesn't always have the variety. It is also the service with a genuine smile that makes a difference.
We were rather disappointed with the rudeness of staff when we took it upon our selves to charge our mobile phones in a socket near our table. They flat out refused to allow it in a very rude manner and gave no alternatives. Otherwise a good venue to eat and drink.
The Margaret River knows how to do wineries and this is no exception. The grandness of the estate is first seen in the beautiful building. We sampled and bought a delicious red that knocked grange off the plate in a blind tasting!
This winery has the most fabulous restaurant on its premises. We enjoyed a long lunch with wine paired with each course by the sommelier. The waiters were friendly and stayed to chat with our chatty group and the food was excellent!
The rooms in the hotel are not much different in standard to the other beach resort which is substantially more expensive. They are also the same size but the view is unbeatable. It makes spending time in your hotel on holidays a pleasure!
Such a stunning golf course - and I don't even play golf! I drove the buggy and it was well worth paying the $30 or so it cost to do so. Nearly every green has stunning views out to the water - there must be nothing like it in the world!
I was ridiculously nervous when embarking on my first ever helicopter ride. However the pilot put me so at ease - even in an open cabin. We toured over Whitehaven beach and other areas of the Whitsundays and it was truly magnificent. Just remember to take a strap to tie your camera around your next or you wont be able to take it in the open aircraft.
This is a hugely set out hotel and the villas are equally as huge and very well appointed. Great toiletries in the room which is always a plus when moving between hotels and forgetting your essentials. The staff are friendly and helpful and will whisk you to your rooms in golf carts if the weather is inclement
Such a gem of a hotel in a favourite town, made famous many years ago with visiting royalty, it is such a beautiful historic hotel. The food is good and fairly priced and so too are the rooms, especially those that open to the wide verandah over the sea.
The best restaurant and bar on the South Coast. located in the old lighthouse keepers house, it has been perfectly restored with cozy nooks and areas for large groups. The food is always excellent and the service country friendly too!
Such a lovely setting, so much so that when you eat in the private dining room you feel like you are in the dining room of a private home. The service is excellent, smooth and unobtrusive. Jacques popped in for a visit and chat to meet us all which was a lovely touch for the real foodies.
Perfect hotel for a spring / summer break in the Hunter Valley as you can cool off from the heat in the large swimming pool and even go to the gym if you are keen! We stayed as a part of a large wedding booking and they were more than happy for us to have a BBQ beside the villa on the expansive grounds the next day!
