To celebrate our 40th wedding anniversary we decided to take advantage of our WorldMark Ownership and travel around some of the USA’s National Parks. We stayed at WorldMark resorts in St George, Wolf Creek, West Yellowstone, Steamboat Springs, Estes Park, Santa Fe, Pinetops, Phoenix and Las Vegas. On this incredible journey we travelled over 10,000kms in six weeks and saw some magnificent scenery and wildlife. Continue reading →
My husband and I were looking for a perfect family getaway for my daughter and her husband and my sister and her husband. We decided to go to Wyndham Flynns Beach, which is in Port Macquarie, not far from Sydney, and spend about 4 days there. Continue reading →
It’s been two sleeps in my own bed and two days of washing and unpacking. What I am unfolding is not just a piece of clothing that holds a faint odour of ‘suitcase’, but also holds the memory of a recent experience that I shared with my family of a wonderful trip around the USA. It was five week marathon that was designed to be ‘the’ once-in-a-lifetime holiday for our family to enjoy before the children grow up and get parentitis, or we grow up and get dodgy knees!

In actual fact, the Wyndham membership was purchased three years ago with the specific plan for this holiday (and many more) in mind. It did not disappoint! Continue reading →
My wife and I have been restricted in the past when selecting holiday destinations as I am a poor traveller on aeroplanes. I have vertigo and we have always driven to WorldMark resorts and have experienced some wonderful holidays since we joined as Owners in 2001. We had not driven to your Ballarat resort as it seemed too distant; however it was strongly recommended by other Owners we had met over the years.
We made the big decision (for us), to fly to Melbourne, hire a car and drive up to Ballarat for a week at this beautiful resort. I survived the plane travel (only two hours), collected our vehicle and when we drove into the driveway at WorldMark Resort Ballarat, it was like stepping back in time. The stunning bluestone building built in 1878 greeted us and on entering noticed all the original features had been preserved. Continue reading →
