Discover Orpheus Island with Eleanor Pendleton

We’ve teamed up with beauty guru and founder of Gritty Pretty, Eleanor Pendleton to show you how it’s done.

Located on the sparkling turquoise coastline, in the middle of the Great Barrier Reef, you’ll find the stunning sanctuary of Orpheus Island. Adored for its harmonious relationship with the reef and commitment to conservation, this is modern, island luxury at its best. Tranquil and secluded, one of their luxe North Beachfront Rooms could be yours for 5 blissful nights.

Resort wear comes alive this season in well-wearing, natural fibres. Hues inspired by our great Australian landscape are at home on Orpheus Island, with tiered and voluminous favourites turning it on in the breeze. When travelling with a carry on it’s wise to spend more time thinking about accessories that transform your look. Less is still more on island time so think pared-back gold and barely-there sandals when dressing for dinner and drinks at Orpheus Island’s ‘chef’s-hatted’ restaurant and bar.

“To me, luxury is time – time to slow down and switch off, time to be present in every experience and time to spend with the ones I love, doing the things I adore..”

Eleanor Pendleton

“My idea of a perfect holiday is visiting a warm, tropical destination so I love a sleeveless midi or maxi dress – I’ll often choose colours and prints to best reflect the surroundings. My perfect resort wardrobe consists of dresses that can be thrown on yet look fabulously chic.”

When it comes to getaway beauty, playing to your climate is essential. Get the holiday glow before you go with SK-II’s Facial Treatment Sheet Mask and don’t forget to give the rest of your body a luxurious kiss of hydration with La Mer’s Renewal Body Balm. While away, start your beauty routine for the day with a hard-working SPF. In the spirit of your natural surrounds, opt for a lightweight, vegan and reef safe formulation by Grown Alchemist; the perfect summer staple for long days at the beach.

“When I’m on holidays, I like to pack minimal makeup and instead focus on skincare to deeply nourish and hydrate my skin after travelling.”

Eleanor Pendleton

For cocktail hour, let your makeup look be an exercise in enhancing your natural beauty. Adding a light dusting of Tom Ford’s Soleil Glow Bronzer and a spray of Oribe’s Après Beach Wave and Shine Spray are the easiest ways to getaway glam. For the finishing touch, and a look you won’t forget, add a spritz of ‘Her’ by Who Is Elijah. Inspired by scents of an Italian seaside village, it’s the ultimate holiday fragrance and a transportation to a sunnier time.

Discover Jackalope with Brit and Joel Selwood

From fine dining to picnics in the sun, let the gorgeous Brit Selwood and her AFL star husband Joel show you how to make the most of a weekend away at Jackalope.

Welcome to Jackalope! Brit wears Camilla And Marc

Nestled in a private vineyard on the picturesque wine region of Mornington Peninsula is Jackalope. With a monolithic, jet-black exterior, it’s a call to reimagine Australian luxury. Unifying art, design, dining and storytelling, the hotel’s 45 rooms will transport you to a world away. With floor to ceiling windows that frame the sunrise and custom-made furniture, this is an escape that’s as immersive as it is indulgent. From the two hatted restaurants with contrasting takes on farm-to-fork food and the sweeping infinity pool views, pressing reset has never felt so good.

Brit and Joel’s postcard from Jackalope

“Our idea of luxury is getting out of the day to day hustle and bustle, putting our feet up and enjoying good food and wine.”
