Whileaway Guides in the media…read the latest and greatest news about us.
Here comes the Bride (and her guests!)
Getting married, throwing a party or having a conference in a ‘Whileaway’ destination? We are now doing customised WEDDING & EVENT guides and postcards. Add your names, date and area of the event on the relevant location guides. They become a bespoke and memorable gift for guests who are travelling to the region, plus saves you time putting together your own guide. It’s a lovely memento for your guests to keep after your big day.
We are absolutely delighted to be teaming up with the crew at Cellarmasters to bring all their valued members a special Whileaway gift. In September, all members will be receiving a Barossa Valley Whileaway Guide slipped into their case of the hand selected good stuff! Yee haa, everyone’s happy!
Just finished another great Life In Style in the glorious Royal Exhibition Building Melbourne. Here’s the wrap.
Wow – we’ve been so busy we havent had time to update our website! Sorry guys but hopefully you are all following us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram where we have been boasting about our best bits to date. Notably lots of love going into our next few releases – Launceston and surrounds, Newcastle and surrounds, Canberra and surrounds and Geelong and the Bellarine Peninsula. Going to print VERY soon…
We had an awesome 4-day event at Life In Style in Sydney at the Hordern Pavilion where we moved and shook with the best-of-the-best in Retail. Lots of orders and great feedback so we were so chuffed, we are doing it again in Melbourne in August! We hope to see you all there. We also went down the Aisle at the Bridal Fair ‘One Fine Day’ where we oohhed at all the brides who were looking for some inspiration for their big day. If they were having a destination wedding or looking for some hens weekends or honeymoon ideas – that’s where we came in. And in news just in – we are now stocked in the MCA (Museum of Contemporary Art) in The Rocks, Sydney along with the uber cool design store ‘Bristol and Brooks’ in Sydney’s Chifley Plaza. Feeling pretty chuffed about these cool spots so next time you need your culture fix – you know where to go to pick up your Whileaway Guide!

16 May 2010 – Whileaway Guides concept born
At sunset, over a glass of Rose, the more we talked about it, the more excited we got. With our love of travel, sense of adventure and eternal curiosity of new places to escape, we were always being asked for tips on places to go, see and savour. Why not package it up and put it in print for all our friends? And the concept was born.
