A Champagne Breakfast

By Anna Jordan | Featuring Izi Simundic
Moreton Island, Australia
02/03/2017

Imagine a place where there's not another human soul as far as the eye can see. Where you can play your music as loud as your eardrums can bear and it's so secluded that a nudie run on the beach almost loses its thrill. We wake up on Moreton Island to the sun peeking into our tents, letting us know that its going to be another perfect day of summer. Izi, Ming and I spend the morning exploring tea tree lakes and pristine natural water ways teaming with birds in the peaceful morning light. It's not long before the sun coerces us towards the ocean and we spend the afternoon floating amongst the tropical hues, watching our friends catch waves as we explore the northern point of the island - where the waves meet ocean cliffs with such force that they explode into the sky - then trickle down into the Champagne Pools below.

Storm clouds roll in from the ocean, promising some reprise from the blistering Australian heat and our only hope of rinsing the salt off our skin before we head back to the campsite.

This is Izi Simundic exploring a secluded Aussie paradise with Cantik Swimwear...

It's a little bit tricky to pin Anna down. She is a specialist in international relations and development who works as an accountant for not-for-profit organisations and dabbles in travel writing and photography. She lives in Byron Bay and travels the globe with her professional surfer boyfriend Matt Wilkinson. The world is her delicious little oyster. @annajordan89

  1. Darwin and Tiwi Islands

    We explore the Northern Territory outback, the local Darwin food, bar and music scene and the nearby Tiwi Islands for a cultural hit and some infamous Barra fishing with the local indigenous guides.

  2. The Whitsundays travel guide

    "I''ve travelled around the world and the most beautiful place i have ever seen is in our backyard - the Whitsundays” - Emily Hutchinson @emelinaah
    We planned a fun 8-day Whitsunday holiday filled with reef diving, island hopping, water activities and plenty of time to relax. The trip kicked off with three days in Airlie Beach which was enough time to chat to the locals and get the inside story on the best things to do and explore in the Whitsundays. Every conversation pointed to two things: a one-day Cruise Whitsundays dive trip to the outer Great Barrier Reef and a sea plane flight over Heart Reef and Whitehaven Beach with Air Whitsunday. Then we spent four leisurely days on a #gobareboating catamaran exploring the 74 Whitsunday Islands. Thanks to our very own skipper (a local who knew just the right places), we stumbled across our own secret beaches, found hidden gems and watched the tropical Whitsunday world go by. Our trip ended with an overnight stay on glorious Hamilton Island - and a chance to mix water sports and hiking activities with chill outs by the resort pool and enjoy quality restaurant and cocktail time.
