Been planning for a trip somewhere where I only have myself. I wanted to eat, relax and read books that has been gathering dust in my boolshelf.

  • It depends on your personal preferences – do you prefer beach or mountains, etc? Some ideas might be the Blue Mountains, Byron Bay (although not sure how relaxing it is these days, I haven’t been there in years), Hunter Valley, Jervis Bay, Kangaroo Valley

  • My absolute favourite NSW haven is Nelson Bay. The most beautiful little beach town we stumbled upon on a road trip from QLD. So many cute places to eat, and lovely places to stay. Our b&b had a private spa in our enclosed patio. Heaven.

  • Oh that sounds like a great holiday.. I would pick somewhere near the beach – Merimbula, Pambula or Eden are all nice.

  • Depends on where you are. For me, in Victoria, I would go Otways, bright, Marysville etc. Somewhere secluded surrounded by bush or forest with a lovely view where you can sit out on a balcony and read

  • Just be you. Choose books you want to read. Drink copious amounts of tea and coffee (or wine) enjoy the peace and queit. Journal. Bush walk. Learn a new skill.

  • That sounds like a perfect getaway. I would want somewhere near the coast – Merimbula area would be my suggestion.

  • I think 3-4 days would be the perfect amount of time – stock up on food and drinks you like and bring looks of books to read

  • Hmm that sounds nice…maybe look at some bush reatrets

  • It sounds like you know how you want to spend your time already! It sounds like a quiet country or coastal town might be your best bet.

  • If you can’t find somewhere, book yourself into a hotel in your town and splurge all weekend.

  • Depending on what helps you relax, i would look at the following
    South Coast – Gerroa, Kiama, shellharbour
    Blue Mountains
    Hawkes Nest
    South West Rocks

    You can relax, enjoy the scenery and read/relax

  • Also, check out travel sites for deals. There seem to be a lot on offer at the present time.

  • Search the internet for adult retreats and you should find quiet paces for rest and relaxation.

  • Good on you !
    What about a lovely spa in the Blue Mountains area ?

  • Not sure where but that’s an excellent idea. We can all benefit from some Alone time
