Is the cooler weather making you want to give your snooze button a rest and soak in the sun?
Are you getting the urge to dust off your beanie and rug up in your woolies?
Whatever you’re more prone to do in the cooler months, these resorts will get you out amongst Mother Nature and ensure you make the most of your holidays.
Still chasing the sunshine? - Try the Sunshine State
Ever considered Queensland? Those that already call this place home are very lucky and should take advantage of it, after all it is not known as the “Sunshine State” for nothing. The Gold Coast averages 300 days of sunshine per year, so cool and casual clothes and lots of sunscreen are recommended! As nights do get cool, a light jumper is also worth including. Why not make your first stop to the southern end of the Gold Coast and visit Wyndham Vacation Resort Asia Pacific Kirra Beach? Then you could head further north to soak in the sun rays along the three-kilometers worth of golden sand between Surfers Paradise and the Pacific Ocean. Wyndham Vacation Resorts Asia Pacific Surfers Paradise and Wyndham Vacation Resorts Asia Pacific Crown Towers both have an excellent vibe with a laid back atmosphere that will make you never want to leave.
Winter, or the ‘dry’ season as locals in Tropical North Queensland call it, typically begins in May and ends in October and usually means idyllic weather – sunshine, fresh breezes and not too much humidity if you stay at WorldMark South Pacific Club by Wyndham Cairns or travel to Wyndham Resort Asia Pacific at Ramada Resort Port Douglas a stunning 90 minute drive further north.These two locations are perfectly placed to have you cruising to Great Barrier Reef or walking through the Daintree rainforest, which are two must do and see attractions while you’re there.
How about Fiji? – Where happiness finds you
Practice saying ‘Bula’ as Fiji enjoys an ideal South Seas tropical climate where the Dry Season is from April to October. Located on the beachfront is Wyndham Vacation Resorts Asia Pacific Denarau Island, an oasis ideal for sipping cocktails, enjoying authentic Fijian culture and letting life’s pressures float away. Now doesn’t that sound like a dream!

Want to embrace the Cold? - Get amongst New Zealand – land of the long white cloud

Vanessa – Owner Education Consultant
I’m always up for the change of weather. I love rugging up when it gets cold and taking short trips to Melbourne (my second home) where I can get amongst the lastest fashion and explore the City. I also love being around water and take my puppy Coco to the beach where I can feel the sand between my toes and sunshine on my skin. I always try to embrace nature and live in the moments.
