It’s hard to believe it’s already the end of the year.
So much has happened.
You may have forgotten about the crazy, hazy start to the year with the raging bushfires across Australia.
And as if it wasn’t enough hurt for our country, the next big thing hit.
A global pandemic. International flights cancelled. Borders closed. Home quarantine. The list goes on.
But look where we are now!
We can almost see the light at the end of the tunnel for Australians (particularly all of us in Melbourne), and it is SO important for us all to recognise how far we have all come.
It’s also important to celebrate with a bit of time away from home… and there has been no better time than now to explore what our own backyard has to offer us!
A number of our Signal Security team members have been asked to share their recommendations and suggestions for a getaway this Christmas. Maybe take one of these suggestions and go for it! Or even use them to inspire your next summer holiday.
“For me, exploring our own country is just as exciting as any overseas trip! I don’t think we realise how much our country really has to offer and how truly beautiful it is.
Not a lot of people know about this one, however if you don’t mind a drive like me, I would highly suggest Portland for your Christmas getaway this year. It’s a quiet beachside town about a 5-hour drive from Melbourne and is absolutely beautiful. While you’re there, check out Shelly Beach. One of the best beaches I can say I’ve been to. Just make sure to bring your sunscreen because you won’t want to leave!”
“Ever since I moved here, my favourite getaway has been Wilsons Promontory. It is a bit of a drive, however the rewards are amazing once you get there! I’m a cabin person, however I know you can camp there too if that’s your preference.
The hikes are incredible (something you wouldn’t generally get in St Kilda) and the beaches are second-to-none in my opinion. Squeaky Beach is a popular one and for good reason… The sand is so soft and the water crystal blue. If you’re to go on a little getaway, I’d definitely recommend Wilsons Prom!”
Kakadu National Park
“That’s an interesting one… I’ve always wanted to go to the Northern Territory and explore the beautiful Kakadu National Park they have there. It’s been on the bucket list for a long time, and although I haven’t seen it personally, I’ve only seen amazing photos and heard great things about it!”
No matter where you go or whose recommendation you take, get out of town, soak up some sun, and remember to keep safe while doing so!
