Travel the World right here in Australia

With international travel now seeming like a distant memory and unattainable dream, we have turned our sights on domestic destinations for our holiday fix. Taking inspiration from our favourite swimwear prints and international vacation spots, we’ve chosen some dreamy Australian locations to satisfy our travel itch. There are endless options for beachside holidaying in Australia, so we have tried to find unique spots to offer you more than just a white sandy beach.

Costa Rica - Far North Queensland

The picturesque Central American country is a stunning blend of rainforest and idyllic coastlines. We loved traveling to this amazing destination known for its beaches, volcanoes, and biodiversity. While Costa Rica is now out of our reach, we are searching for a destination that brings together our love of adventure, nature and coastal beauty. 

Far North Queensland, and in particular Cairns, is our local equivalent of Costa Rica. Boasting beautiful tropical coastlines, the incredible Great Barrier Reef and Daintree National Park, Far North Queensland should be on your travel bucket list. 

Like the jungle and volcanic areas of Costa Rica, Kuranda and the Atherton Tablelands are perfect destinations for rainforest adventures and wildlife exploration. Take a gondola ride to view majestic waterfalls from unique vantage points, or stay close to the ground as you explore freshwater creeks and natural water slides. The Daintree Rainforest is another spectacular natural playground that David Attenborough has called “the most extraordinary place on Earth.”

Explore beautiful coastal landscapes with visits to Port Douglas, Palm Cove and Cape York, with the Great Barrier Reef right on your doorstep. The options for adventure as well as relaxation are endless in the Far North. 

Wear our versatile Costa Rica 6 Way Wrap to bring bright, tropical vibes to your Far North Queensland vacation.

Hawaii - Lord Howe Island

Oh, Hawaii, how we’ve missed you. With your ominous volcanoes, crystal blue waters and lush green vegetation, you are the definition of paradise. 

Once a well frequented holiday destination for Australians and the rest of the world, the Hawaiian islands are now out of reach. The island’s natural beauty and endless offerings of activities and adventure are sorely missed and we are pining for an island experience to match our memorable Hawaiian getaways. 

Lucky for us we have a plethora of islands to choose from, with Lord Howe Island on the top of our list. With a physical similarity to Hawaii, Lord Howe Island features mountainous terrain with the remains of a now-extinct volcano. The tiny island is surrounded by tranquil blue waters where you can scuba dive, snorkel and kayak, exploring marine wildlife and picturesque scenery. Active travellers can enjoy golfing, fishing and hiking, while those who are after a relaxing experience can be pampered in the day spa. 

Our Blue Hawaii collection is inspired by the beautiful blue Pacific Ocean, ideal to wear on an island getaway to Lord Howe.

Costa Brava  - Northern New South Wales

Our last international campaign was shot in the stunning coastal region of Costa Brava in Spain. With its secluded coves and inlets, rugged coastline and charming seaside towns, this was the perfect location for our dreamy coastal shoot. With places to swim, sail, walk and dine, Costa Brava is an international destination that we can’t wait to revisit. 

The unspoiled natural backdrop was the perfect place to showcase our Bohemian Sunset collection with the region embracing a free spirited lifestyle akin to our relaxed Australian way. With amazing dining options, chilled vibes and breathtaking scenery, It reminded us of weekends away in Byron Bay and Northern New South Wales. 

While Byron Bay is becoming a busy little holiday destination, the surrounding areas are still easily accessible and just as beautiful. Hike the rugged coastlines and explore the quiet coves and bays around Broken Head, dine on the coastline at Rae’s at Wategos Beach, or take in the delights that the little seaside village of Lennox Head has to offer. There is so much to explore outside of Byron Bay to give you that Costa Brava experience. 

Chanel the mood of our Costa Brava vacation in the Bohemian Sunset one piece. Wear it to your Byron getaway as a swimsuit or bodysuit with a maxi skirt or wide leg pant.

Okinawa Japan - The Whitsundays

The Okinawa prefecture is home to more than 150 islands including the main island of Okinawa. Known as the “Hawaii of Japan”, this idyllic island getaway is home to incredible scenery, crystal blue waters and is a dream for divers and snorkelers who want to explore marine life and other natural wonders. While we can’t currently travel to Japan, here in Australia we are blessed with the most spectacular islands on the planet. The Whitsundays.

Protected by the Great Barrier Reef, the Whitsundays include the tropical havens of Hamilton, Hayman and Daydream Islands as well as the impossibly perfect Whitehaven Beach. Explore the natural beauty of the islands by foot or take the plunge into the turquoise blue waters surrounding the Whitsundays. Snorkling, diving, kayaking, swimming and boating are the best ways to spend your time in this beautiful piece of paradise. 

With rainforests, sparkling white sand beaches and the most incredible blue waters you’ll ever see, The Whitsunday islands are an absolute must see for every Australian who loves to travel and explore the natural beauty of our amazing planet. 

Our Japanese inspired Cherry Blossom collection is perfect to wear on your Whitsundays holiday.

India - Broome, WA

India is one of the most amazing places in the world. With the landscape varying immensely, the options for adventure are endless. Lush forests, rugged mountains, breathtaking deserts and beautiful beaches, India has every possible destination for an amazing travel experience. Where else in the world can you ride camels along picturesque beaches with views of the desert in the distance? Well, you can do it in Broome, Western Australia. 

Broome has to be one of the most naturally unique places in Australia, if not the world. The endless white sands of Cable Beach meet the spectacular red rocks coming in from the Kimberleys, where you can see dinosaur footprints at low tide and take a camel ride at sunset. Rich in indiginous history and spectacular natural wonders, Broome and its surrounds offer a travel experience like no other. 

Choose to relax in style and marvel at the impossibly blue waters of the Indian Ocean lapping the shore of Cable Beach, or trek further afield to discover ancient rock formations, limestone cliffs or the natural habitats of freshwater crocodiles. Who needs to travel internationally when you have all of this beauty right here in Australia?

The stunning monochromatic Raj print, inspired by the art and textiles of India, is perfect for wearing on your Broome getaway.

Pacific Islands - Kangaroo Island, SA

Are you pining for your trips to our neighboring islands in the Pacific? Fiji, Vanuatu, Tahiti and even New Zealand are unfortunately all off limits to us right now and we are missing our adventures to these stunning locales. With their natural beauty offering a variety of unique activities, the Pacific Islands have always been easily accessible for adventurous getaways. With each destination offering its own unique landscapes and cultures, we are on the lookout for local travel spots that will satisfy our needs for adventures in nature. 

Kangaroo Island in South Australia has just what we need. With over a third of the island protected as nature reserves for native wildlife, Kangaroo Island offers a travel experience like no other. Discover sea lions, koalas, penguins, birdlife and of course, kangaroos, existing harmoniously in their natural habitat while you explore or relax in the beauty of this unique island. 

Wine, dine and be mesmerised by the beauty surrounding you, or get out and explore with adventure walks, ocean safaris and marine adventures. While the Pacific Islands may not be available to experience, Australia’s unique and beautiful destinations, like Kangaroo Island are ready and waiting for your next adventure. 

The Pacific Islands inspired our Island Story collection, and is ideal for wearing to picturesque Kangaroo Island.

Staying positive and keeping our spirits up is challenging. It takes work. Affirmations and mantras are positive ways to encourage ourselves daily to keep going. Here are some of our fav self-love mantras!
