The host of Location, Location, Location has spoken of his love for the Australian city of Melbourne.
TV presenter Phil Spencer has named his Melbourne highlights as well as offering plenty of sage travel advice for travellers contemplating booking flights to Australia.
The Location, Location, Location host told the Telegraph that his best ever holiday was spent in the Australian city, including a trip to the “spectacular” Byron Bay.
He added that both he and his wife Fiona, who is a native Aussie, are very fond of Melbourne and its “great” weather.
Phil’s key criteria for a perfect holiday are simple: “I need my wife, my children and blue skies. If there is white sand and warm water, then I’ve ticked the boxes.”
“I don’t need activities, but the older the children get the more they need… and happy children make for happy parents,” he added.
The Sunday Times columnist also recommended switching off the TV and avoiding all news stories while on holiday to add to the feeling of relaxation.
