The latest book is filled with “wanderful” selections of Australasia’s most stylish hotels and resorts. From the lush wet plains of Australia’s Top End, via the iconic beaches and islands of the east coast, right through to the Middle Earth peaks of New Zealand’s South Island, Mr & Mrs Smith will be sure to lure you to some of the best off-the-beaten-track destinations in the region. Mr & Mrs Smith Hotel Collection: Australia/New Zealand is officially out 25 November (£19.95), but you can order an advance copy now.
