Both our Sydney and Melbourne Travel PR teams agree that these popular close-by destinations are the perfect escapes to beat the winter blues. Whether you need a relaxing rest or an outdoor adventure, don’t let the cold season hold you back from the break you deserve.

1)      Blue Mountains

The World Heritage listed Blue Mountains is the rugged trip your adventurous side has been longing for. Eucalyptus forests, steep cliffs, spectacular waterfalls, and an abundance of wildlife make the national park a top spot any time of year. Explore and stay in one of the vibrant villages, unwind in a luxurious spa, and celebrate the season at a winter festival all just a short road or rail trip west of Sydney.

2)      Hunter Valley

Home to over 100 vineyards and known for its local produce such as cheese and chocolate, Hunter Valley is a hotspot for wine and food lovers. Take a tour of the region’s wineries, play a round of golf, and get the ultimate view of the valley on board a hot air balloon at this popular destination just north of Sydney.

3)      Mornington Peninsula

While Mornington Peninsula is popular in the summer months, it is just as lovely in the winter with lots of the wineries, art galleries, hot springs, and spas. Experience the winter ocean through a scenic drive along the coast, just an hour outside of Melbourne.

4)      Daylesford

There is no better time than winter to relax your cold muscles at a day spa in the well-known spa town of Daylesford. Just northwest of Melbourne, the region is the perfect place to soak in the famous rejuvenating mineral waters and calm your mind on a wellness retreat while staying at one of the many luxurious boutique accommodations. 

5)      Thredbo

Of course we could not talk about winter retreats and not mention a snow escape! Home to the longest ski run in Australia, Thredbo is an alpine village and ski resort in the mountains of southeast Australia. There is so much to do on and off the mountain such as tobogganing, night skiing, and snow shoeing, so no matter your skill or adventure level, everyone can have some winter fun.
