Welcome to Sydney, Australia, the land of Vegemite and vast beaches. You’ve landed just in time for the annual arts and culture extravaganza that is Vivid Sydney, May 24th – June 15th 2019. To paraphrase Aussie icon Kath Day-Knight, this 23-day festival of light, music and ideas will take you into the nooks and unexplored crannies of the city but there is also plenty of culcha to soak up in the state of New South Wales while you’re here. Having grown up in this beautiful part of the world and consumed at least 3000 sausage rolls in my lifetime, I am appointing myself as your tour guide for this trip. I hope you slept like a baby and filled up on tasty treats during your Qantas flight, because you’ve got a busy few days ahead.

On a 30-degree day in Sydney, the JONES fashion team packed up their winter woollies and jumped on a plane to Australia’s only island state, Tasmania. Historic grazing properties, bushlands and refreshingly cool temperatures were there to greet them when they landed in Launceston.

The team was in town to shoot The Great Escape (see the full spread on page 98 of the winter issue) in the pristine wilderness of Tasmania. In between takes, they discovered that there is so much more to Tasmania than just the breathtaking scenery. Make the most of your next trip to Tassie with the team’s top travel tips.

If you’d asked us what we knew about the opera last week we 100% would’ve said something about Julia Roberts’ sparkling eyes. And while our first opera experience did resemble some striking similarities to classic rom-com Pretty Woman, we now have some much more educated things to say about the art form. Last night we rolled into Sydney Opera House for a performance of Italian opera La Bohème. That’s French for the bohemia btw, so you know this isn’t going to be any stuffy old story. Now we’re feeling pretty worldly after our one and only opera experience, so we’re going to provide you with some tips and tricks for your next night on the town. Here goes…

In this world of Netflix-binges that are interrupted by the occasional need to eat, sleep, work and see your friends, it’s easy to forget the healing power of a good old fashioned chat.
