National Circus Centre - Phillip Island - Free Air for Gold Cruise - Asia Cruise Deal - Fiji Resort Deal

Travel Briefs

John Crook

Catch a rising star

Graduating artists shine in a stella finale performance season at the National Institute of Circus Centre in Prahran from November 23 to December 3, 2011.  Ticketing is available and bookings may be made  For general enquiries telephone (03) 9214 6975.

One heck of a place

I refer to Phillip Island where there is coastal-style adventure, wildlife galore, and such an array of local foods and wines.  Fishing is one of the popular pastimes.  Grab a rod, check  out the type of bait which is recommended and with sea breeze in your face, go out after the big ones.  If you are really keen, try one of the charter boats on offer at Rhyll and San Remo.  For information on accommodation, attractions, events, go visit or telephone 1300 366 422.

Free air fares for 2012 Europe golf cruises

Sounds pretty good to me, so how about you ?  Rounds of golf at three courses in Scotland, three in Germany and one in Austria, are now part of a new series of APT Magnificent Europe luxury river cruises with land extensions next year.   These have been launched with a free airfares offer, including air taxes of $850.  Deal bookings must be made before January 31, 2012.  The 20-day package starts in Glasgow on May 1 and September 23, while the 15-day cruise only version starts in Amsterdam  on May 6 and September 28.  All finish in Budapest.  For the full story, go visit or telephone 1300 229 804.  Visiting your travel agent could also be a good thought.

Unbeatable voyages - Sydney and UK

There are hugely-discounted prices for last-available cabins aboard the 650-passenger Discovery on a sailing from Bangkok to Hong Kong on December 19, this year.  It's now available from a low, low $2060 per person twin share for 16-nights, as well as on six sectors of Discovery's cruise from Sydney back to the UK between February and April 2012.  Conditions apply, and I would suggest you make a move as soon as you can.  This is sailing at its best, -so contact your nearest Cruiseco-specialist travel agent  by visiting

Stay four pay three

Australians visiting Fiji should check out the great stay four, pay three deal on the tropical paradise located on the island of Malolo in the beautiful Fiji islands.  Enjoy the famous Fijian hospitality from only $210 per bure per night, with the price based on a one bedroom bure, which sleeps two adults.  The offer  applies to all accommodation types and is valid until 31 March 2012, including school holidays and Christmas.  You really should check out Fiji's Walu Beach Resort.  Conditions do apply, so if you are interested, check with your travel agent, or go visit
