Ballarat: “Always a pleasure getting back to the resort…”

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

“We are already planning a return trip to Wanaka!”

Lake Wanaka | WorldMark South Pacific Club by Wyndham

Les & Deb at Lake Wanaka

It’s been a long 39 years since we toured the North and South Islands of New Zealand. Back in 1975 we were in our last year of High School and were part of a tour group of 30 people. Previously we had stayed in Queenstown and toured the Otago area in a coach. We vividly remember the rugged snow capped peaks and beautiful lakes and striking scenery.

Fast forward to July 2014. We flew from Sydney directly into Queenstown International Airport for a ten-day winter holiday. After picking up our 4WD hire car we drove in fading daylight over the snow covered Crown Range to the Wyndham resort in Wanaka. Continue reading

“A HUGE thank you to the staff at Port Douglas!”

A big catch in Port Douglas

As a large family, Mum, Dad and four kids, we have always found it difficult and/or too expensive to go on a decent family holiday. But, since joining WorldMark we have never had better vacations. Especially our last holiday to Ramada Port Douglas.

What a property! Continue reading

As WorldMark Owners, we spent a glorious week in Canmore.

What a gorgeous winterland greeted us on our arrival in early May. It snowed all the way as we were driving through Rocky Mountains to Canmore.  While there, we were able to visit all the wonderful tourist spots such as Banff – and Lake Louise was still frozen (an amazing sight). Continue reading
