"Great cake, also known in Barbados as black cake or rum cake, is a variation of British Christmas cake that's smashed with rum and falernum syrup," says Momofuku Seiobo chef Paul Carmichael. "This festive cake varies from household to household but they all have two things in common: tons of dried fruit and rum.

on the global indulgence map with its combination of cinematic
Freycinet Peninsula views, top-flight cuisine and imaginative

Given our seemingly infinite coastline, it's not surprising many
of Australia's best addresses can be found beside the beach. Or, in
the case of Lizard Island, beside 24
private beaches on the Great Barrier Reef. Fresh from its

accommodaton and The Villa, a lavish, two-bedroom lookout over the
