Wyndham Hotels | Exploring the tropics from Ramada Port Douglas

Simon HancockComment

If lush rainforests, glittering coastlines, pristine beaches and leisurely reef sailing are your thing (of course they are), it’s time to pack your bathers, bronzing balm and get to the sun-drenched shores of Port Douglass immediately.

Just a few hours flight from Sydney but worlds away once you land, the region boasts a superbly French Polynesian island vibe that will immediately begin calm and soothe your sun-seeking soul from the moment you disembark the plane.

The only place on the planet where two World Heritage listed areas (the Great Barrier Reef and the Daintree Rainforest) meet, the Ramada Resort By Wyndham Port Douglas is the perfect base for your tropical adventures.

Nestled within a unique pocket of Melaleuca rainforest and just a short walk to the world-renowned Four Mile Beach, the resort’s jungle boardwalks, treehouse dining and turquoise lagoons blend with the natural surrounds, allowing you to relax and rejuvenate as you well deserve.

Isn’t it time to book your next getaway?

Bell & Ross | Luxury Must-Have Timepieces

FashionSimon HancockComment

Even the most seasoned travellers have to admit there's a certain magic surrounding aviation. Whether you're jumping on a brief domestic flight or jetting overseas on a serious long-haul, one can't help but feel exhilarated by a journey through the clouds and the destination that awaits.

As we've advanced from the pioneering Amelia Earhart legends of yesteryear to the luxury Dreamliners that soar us to the furthest corners of the globe today, one element of aviation has remained unchanged; the undeniable sense of adventure one experiences when soaring through the skies.

It's that exact sprit of adventure that inspires luxury watchmakers Bell & Ross to create their stunningly sophisticated timepieces; including the iconic Vintage Collection featuring the achingly suave BR V2-92 Black Steel.

Like the brand’s other collections, these professional instruments have military DNA and meet a set of specifications and requirements established by the armed forces. Understandably, legibility, functionality and precision are priorities with these classic timepieces also designed to be watertight for use in aquatic environments.

It's time to take your style sky-high and embrace your unique sense of adventure with Bell & Ross, gentleman.
