    Located almost a thousand kilometres off the coast of mainland Ecuador, and scattered throughout the equatorial seas of the Pacific Ocean, this tiny cluster of remote islands is so much more than just golden coastlines and pristine waters.

  • Gallipoli, 1915: the history, the facts and the figures

    Turkey is a land of sparkling beauty and arresting sights – but no other moment can match the emotion of Gallipoli on 25th April, ANZAC Day. 

    It is a day of remembrance, one of Australia’s and New Zealand’s most important national occasions, and an emotional, sobering travel experience. ANZAC Day stays emblazoned on the memory of all those who have experienced Dawn Service on Turkey’s Gallipoli Peninsula. And never was it more pertinent to remember what happened at Gallipoli than now, 100 years after the fact.

  • An amateur’s guide to preparing for a Mount Kilimanjaro climb

    By Jacqueline Donaldson

    On booking a trip to climb Mt Kilimanjaro last year my excitement quickly turned to panic – what had I done?

  • "Dad, those plants have tentacles" and other notes from a family trip through Borneo

    The brief was simple: a family holiday, somewhere unusual, somewhere memorable.

    It has to be outside Australia," said my eldest princess, a teenage travel snob. "And somewhere warm," announced the middle princess, who is 12. "Where we can ski," added the littlest princess, 9. That's why parents should never consult their offspring about anything other than whether their teeth are clean.

  • People, stories & questions: a week on the Camino de Santiago

    By Robyn Galvin, Peregrine traveller

    At the train station, we met a man who in the last year had lost his daughter and three of her best friends in a car accident. He was then made redundant after serving 30-odd years for the same global company. I asked what brought him to the Camino de Santiago. “Reflection and soul searching”, came his mumbled response. It seemed he was looking for some meaning. I hope he finds it.
