The Weekend Australian - Travel - - Travel & Indulgence - SU­SAN KURO­SAWA

AUS­TRALIAN din­ing has of­fi­cially reached lofty heights — the Ter­race Restau­rant at The Den­man, Thredbo, NSW, re­ceived Aus­tralia’s first alpine restau­rant hat in the 2012 Good Food Guide awards. Ex­ec­u­tive chef Hay­den Eller­ton has a keen fol­low­ing for his fine­din­ing menu, which in­cludes slow-cooked pork cheek with Jerusalem ar­ti­choke puree and pork crack­ling. The venue (open Fri­day to Sun­day dur­ing sum­mer) has floor-to-ceil­ing views to the slopes. A Coolest Sum­mer pack­age in­cludes two nights’ ac­com­mo­da­tion, din­ner at the Ter­race and a spa treat­ment; from $515 a per­son. More: the­den­man.com.au. ARM­CHAIR TRAV­ELLER Ex­treme Fish­ing with Rob­son Green: You don’t need to be the least bit in­ter­ested in an­gling to en­joy the amus­ing prospect of the star of Wire in the Blood bat­tling with the sporti­est denizens of the deep, from the deep south of the US to the fruit­ful wa­ters around The Philip­pines. To­day, 11.30am, Life­Style. Grand De­signs: An­other se­ries, an­other set of Bri­tish home­own­ers in­tent on erect­ing lav­ish fol­lies and giv­ing their bank man­agers the hee­biejee­bies. Host Kevin Mc­Cloud is as dis­ap­prov­ing as ever at all those big ideas, silly dead­lines and slen­der bud­gets. Thurs­day, 8.30pm, Life­Style.
