Luxury Lodges of Australia Welcomes 'On Board', Tasmania's Exclusive Expedition Cruise

Purpose-built for exploring Tasmania's wild and remote frontiers, Odalisque III by On Board is welcomed as the latest member of the Luxury Lodges of Australia collection.

Built and launched in Tasmania by On Board in 2023, Odalisque III is an intimate, expedition vessel that delivers a maximum of 12 guests in seven cabins to some of the farthest reaches of the state's UNESCO World Heritage-listed wilderness.

On Board's signature experience is a five-day discovery of Port Davey on the remote Southwest coast, a spectacular region inaccessible by road. Home to a protected marine park, the Southwest National Park and UNESCO Tasmanian Wilderness World Heritage Area, the vast Port Davey harbour region is one of the world's few remaining places of raw, untamed beauty and the destination for epic, unforgettable adventures. 

The Tasmanian-owned, family-operated experience begins and ends in Hobart with a 40-minute scenic seaplane transfer to the floating wilderness lodge. A feast of Tasmania's finest sustainable seafood, wines and whiskies awaits, while lodgings offer all the soft luxuries, framed by expansive, ever-changing views of untouched waterways, peaks and forests via knee-to-ceiling windows.

Once in the Southwest National Park, guests join expertly guided adventures exploring Bathurst Harbour and its surrounding ancient rainforests, buttongrass plains and quartzite mountain peaks. Guests walk the untracked sands of wild Southern Ocean beaches and the islands, with a chance to spot rare and endangered wildlife and learn of Tasmania's Aboriginal people and their culture and history.

Art Deco Festival Returns in Full After Four Years!

The Art Deco Festival Napier returns to Hawke's Bay for the first time in four years when the region steps back in time in February 2024, with tickets on sale now.

Everything from epic street parties and Vintage Car Parades to the iconic Great Gatsby Party at Mission Estate and plenty more new and exciting events will take place from February 14-18 in Napier, Hastings and Central Hawke's Bay.

The Art Deco Festival last ran in full in February 2020, but was forced to either cancel all or many of their events for the last three years due to the Covid-19 pandemic (2021, 2022) and Cyclone Gabrielle (2023).

However, the festival is ready to return in 2024 and tickets are expected to be snapped up fast! For four days, the region steps back in time and visitors and locals alike celebrate the 'gift of Art Deco' that was embraced following the 1931 Hawke's Bay Earthquake.  

Still considered New Zealand's most deadly natural disaster, the 1931 quake turned much of Napier and Hastings into rubble, as masonry buildings and brick facades crumbled. Wooden structures fared somewhat better, but fires that followed engulfed many of the remaining buildings, particularly in Napier.

Art Deco Trust General Manager Jeremy Smith is excited about the diverse lineup of events that will showcase the region's rich Art Deco heritage, with both ticketed and free events in stunning Art Deco venues in Napier, Hastings and Central Hawke's Bay.

Napier's hero events – including the Roaring 20s Party, Soap Box Derby and navy and vintage car parades – will return for the 2024 festival, while across the region the spirit of the Art Deco era will permeate..

There are many more tours and events in Hastings, along with a Warbirds Flyover. For the first time in the history of the Art Deco Festival, the famous Warbirds will grace Hastings' skies with a spectacle of thrilling manoeuvres. 

Tickets for the festival are now on sale and the full programme can be viewed at:

Christmas Markets in Austria

Romantic lights, seasonal treats, festive carols, and snow-covered roofs and treetops as far as the eye can see: Christmas in Austria is a truly magical time, with locals and visitors alike flocking to the cities and small towns from mid-November to join in the celebrations leading up to Christmas Eve. The festive period has become one of the most popular times to visit Austria – and it’s easy to see why: After all, the traditional Christmas markets, selling everything from punch to chestnuts, traditional handicrafts, and unique local gifts, are famous around the world.

Austria’s charming markets date back to the 18th century and started out as day-time food and drinks markets, much like we still see them today. The festive lights were added in the 20th century, making the markets even more attractive – and romantic. Today, kids (and kids at heart) can not only browse through a huge variety of stalls but also mingle with angels or meet the “Christkind”, the traditional gift-bringer in Austria. Let us show you some classic destinations to experience Christmas the Austrian way – and a few insider tips only a local would know.

Every major Austrian town has at least one Christmas market and it goes without saying that Vienna has by far the most. Austria’s capital is home to more than 20 festive markets, with some of the biggest and most well-known ones right in front of attractions such as the town hall (including a giant Advent calendar on the building!), Schönbrunn Palace (combine it with a visit to Sisi’s palace) and Belvedere Palace. The Christmas markets in the Spittelberg artist district and in front of Karlskirche are long-term local favourites, while the Old Viennese Christmas Market at Freyung, right in the city centre, is where Vienna’s Christmas market tradition started in 1772.

Another great region for markets at the lake promenade is Austria’s southernmost province Carinthia. Head to Lake Wörthersee and check out all the stalls and festive lights in Pörtschach and the famous floating Advent wreath in Velden, then book yourself into a guided torchlit walk to experience even more Christmas magic.
