Postcard from Australia.

It's not often one draws the bedroom curtain to find a bunch of kangaroos outside. Staying in a chalet in  the Jarrah forest in the Margaret River wine region of South West Australia gives much scope for wild life observation; fortunately no nasty crawly things so far. The chalet is on the Island Brook estate, a boutique winery in this gorgeous part of Australia. And I'm blogging after a day around some of the finest wineries Australia has to offer!  Highlight was Cullens. Would have bought some but the helpful wine taster in chief said it’s cheaper in the UK and gave me a list of the stockist! Their Chardonnay is a world beater.

On holiday in Australia (every good CEO deserves a break, even me!) and arrived in Perth after spending a while in the Hunter valley wine region. On a farm as it happens. And so lots of wine tasting and good food.

Here are a few photos for you amusement.
