The Sunday Mail (Queensland) - Escape - - FRONT PAGE -

SUM­MER, to too many peo­ple, sim­ply means find­ing the near­est beach, slip-slop-slap­ping, and ly­ing pros­trate for a week. To oth­ers, it’s overindulging at Christ­mas and lock­ing into a binge-sleep-binge-sleep pat­tern un­til it’s time to go back to the of­fice.

But there’s so much more to the sea­son than that. That’s why Es­cape has put to­gether 50 novel ideas for unique ways to spend your sum­mer time off, both in Aus­tralia and nearby coun­tries.

From the beach to the back coun­try, from 5-star re­sorts to sim­ple tents, we have sug­ges­tions for fam­i­lies, for cou­ples and for sin­gles that’ll take you off the beaten track. Whether you want a leisurely cruise or a balmy beach re­sort, or you’re game for a two-week alpine trek, a horse-rid­ing sa­fari or some white­wa­ter ac­tion, we have a sug­ges­tion for the sum­mer hol­i­day you crave.

Go on, dive into sum­mer, and make this one to re­mem­ber.
