5 Winter getaway ideas to save you from the cold

With winter well and truly set in, you can’t be blamed for wanting to escape the cold by planning a sunny holiday.

From a quick local getaway to a dreamy tropical island to extravagant trips away on the other side of the globe, get away from the dropping temperatures right now by travelling to one of these five warming destinations.


Boasting some of the friendliest and happiest locals in the world, you’ll be greeted with joyous singing as soon as you land at Fiji airport! And with 333 tropical islands to choose from, it’ll be hard to stop smiling once you land. For the best experience, head away from the mainland and visit a few different islands.


You don’t need to leave the country to stay warm in Australia! North Queensland destinations such as Port Douglas boast warm temperatures during our winter. Close to the Great Barrier Reef and the Daintree Rainforest, you can choose to hire a car and explore the magic scenery in North Queensland.

If you’re on the West coast, why not head inland to the Kimberley region, or visit Kakadu National Park in the north? We have some of the most amazing scenery right here on our doorstep.


Popular with Aussies year-round, this tried and trusted staple is a warm destination at any time of the year. Trending locations and experiences in Bali right now include retreats in Ubud, trying unique dining experiences in forests and on hidden beaches, and experiencing treks to visit hidden waterfalls. Consult your Bali Bible for more and keep your eyes peeled for last minute flight deals this winter!


Europe of course, hosts a beautiful summer on the coasts of Greece, Italy, France, Spain or Croatia. If you’re willing to travel the distance, it’s certainly worth the trip across to the other side of the world. However, do remember to plan in advance when travelling to Europe as many destinations can become booked out quickly, and the earlier you book the cheaper it will be to travel.


Beautiful beaches, friendly locals, breathtaking views and delicious food will have you wondering why you’ve never visited the Philippines before! Boracay beach has been rated as one of the top 10 beaches in the world – A must see for any beach lover!
