Whileaway Guides

Destination weddings


We love creating customised guides for destination weddings! Our Whileaway Guides make gorgeous invitations, plus they also provide a beautiful memento of the big day and are also a practical gift for guests to explore the area of the wedding before or after the big day. We can design to suit your theme and customise the content.

Love a Local Feature


We were chuffed to be featured this long weekend in The Local Magazine, Sydney’s Eastern suburbs newest editorial read. Such a well written and beautiful designed free mag focusing on local secrets, local legends and all the latest news in the hood.

Whileaway Guides were also happy to provide an editorial feature on a weekend escape in the Blue Mountains, NSW to whet your appetite to get exploring!…Plus a little bit of background info about us and how we started - all those years ago!

Welcome to 2018!


Hope you all had a wonderful chrissy and spent the time with family and friends hopefully on holiday somewhere fabulous! We were touched by many of you of bought some guides for new locations to explore and hope discovered some hidden gems. We spent the time in the magical Kimberley's in Western Australia and Port Stephens in NSW. Bit of beach and bush - a true Aussie holiday! Here are some pics to whet your appetite...

#Standout with Instagram


We are delighted to share some very exciting news!

Whileaway Guides has been chosen as the ONLY Australian business (from 25 million Instagram business accounts) to be featured as a case study in an Instagram for Business Campaign. A crew from the USA flew to Australia a few months ago to film ‘a day in the life of Whileaway Guides’ and today we are able to share the news. Below is a bit more information from Instagram...

Today, Instagram announced a huge milestone – 25 million businesses are now on the platform! To celebrate, we launched the Instagram Business Toolkit, an evergreen microsite that will serve as a one-stop shop to teach businesses how to stand out on Instagram. To tell this story, we have placed a video about Whileaway Guides on the toolkit! We are very excited to position you as a best-in-class example of a thriving business on Instagram and hope you feel the same. Feel free to share the Toolkit URL with your friends and family -- https://business.instagram.com/a/toolkit

In the coming month, we will also be launching a global digital campaign that will specifically use other videos featuring your business in your home region.

As you can imagine, Kitty and I are thrilled! We want to inspire you to get out and explore Australia over the holidays with Whileaway Guides so we have a special offer for family and friends with a 25% DISCOUNT off your order at checkout - use code: HOLIDAY2017.

Happy exploring, Jess & Kitty xx



Packed for the Weekend - The Collective Magazine


We were super chuffed to be featured in the inspiring Collective Magazine (and with hunky George Clooney on the cover no less!). Not only does this magazine give you hours of thought provoking stories, it inspires and excites to make you want to get out there and change the world. In our own little way, we want to do the same with our Whileaway Guides – get out there and start exploring!

We love Lisa Messenger's (the founder) ethos of positivity and the way she (and the magazine) challenges individuals to think differently. Plus she encourages entrepreneurial spirit, creativity and innovation. Who doesn't love a bit of girl power.

Thanks for the feature and hope we have inspired YOU to get out there and see Australia – one location at a time.

ON LOCATION...BUT you'll have to wait a little bit to find out more!


We have had an amazing few days with the crew from Hardpin Media (http://www.hardpinmedia.com/) who flew to Australia from the USA to do a video about Whileaway Guides for a very special global client.... We are not going to give anything away just yet but we are SUPER EXCITED to see how the video comes together. You'll have to wait a month or so, so come back and visit and we will be shouting from the rooftops about this news to come.

We took our international visitors to see some of our favourite local spots in Manly, Shelly Beach, Whale Beach, Palm Beach, and Cottage Point. We even organised for our 'Flipper' friends to make a special appearance at Whale Beach which was a sight to behold - all 30+ dolphins riding the waves. The drone captured some great shots and our visitors loved it!

Here are some shots 'on location' to whet your appetite. Stay tuned for more updates soon.

New website launch!

Kitty SpryComment

After a few years, we thought it was time to give our website a new look and feel. Plus, it's much easier to use on all devices so we hope you enjoying exploring 'online' and then once you have your Whileaway Guide, get 'offline' in one of our getaway destinations.
