December 2015 took me to Australia and in particular, the Mornington Peninsula in Victoria.

Located just an hour from central Melbourne, the Peninsula offers many different types of experiences and accommodation, from Boutique B&B's to budget motels, spa experiences to swimming with wild dolphins and fine dining to fish and chips!

I stayed at the Quarters at Flinders Hotel on the south east coast located in the heart of the wine region and close to lots of tourist spots and activities. This boutique property is stylish and modern with good sized rooms and dining options of fine dining at Terminus or good local cuisine at the Deck Bar and Bistro. The welcoming and long standing team led by Ashleigh, made us feel very welcome and offered advice on what to do and see locally. More information on this property can be found at www.flindershotel.com.au .

Under the new law, all minors (children under the age of 18 years) will be required to produce, in addition to their passport, an Unabridged Birth Certificate (showing the particulars of both parents) when exiting and entering South African ports of entry.
