How does waking up to the sound of lapping waves in your own beach side cabin sound?

We've compiled a collection of some of our favourite destinations, whether you choose to pay a visit to one, two or all five destinations, these locations are an easy drive and a great option to make a road trip to remember.
1. The Snowy Mountains
Breathing in crisp, clean, mountain air, take in the view of the snow-capped Snowy Mountains and be soothed as Lake Jindabyne’s foreshore calmly laps against the shore overlooked by Jindabyne Holiday Park. If you are enraptured by the ideas of spending your day fly fishing, hiking up to the highest point of Australia - Mt. Kosciusko, or spend the afternoon upon a long walk around Lake Jindabyne, this is the place for you.
