What’s your favourite place in re­gional Aus­tralia?

Eas­ily Her­vey Bay in Queens­land be­cause of the balmy weather, re­laxed life­style, excellent lo­cal seafood and pris­tine beaches. With whales pass­ing though be­tween July and Novem­ber, there are amaz­ing whale­watch­ing tours, too.

Beach? One Mile Beach in Forster on the Mid North Coast of NSW. It has excellent surf­ing con­di­tions, grand sand­hills and an awe­some beach kiosk.

Cul­ture shot? The Na­tional Gallery of Aus­tralia in Can­berra. The art­work is so di­verse and ex­hibits the best of what our na­tion has to of­fer.

Pro­duce? Oys­ters from Tasmania, bar­ra­mundi from Cairns and cray­fish from Port Lin­coln, South Aus­tralia.

Res­tau­rant? Mar­gan in NSW’s Hunter Val­ley be­cause of its fo­cus on us­ing sea­sonal re­gional pro­duce paired with its own wines. Ex­pe­ri­ence? He­li­copter sight­see­ing over spec­tac­u­lar Cape Leveque in Western Aus­tralia.
