20 lucky winners will receive a copy of Bluebottle by Belinda Castles valued at $29.99 each, thanks to Allen & Unwin.

On a sweltering day in a cliff-top beach shack, Jack and Lou Bright grow suspicious about the behaviour of their charismatic, unpredictable father, Charlie. A girl they know has disappeared, and as the day unfolds, Jack’s eruptions of panic, Lou’s sultry rebellions and their little sister Phoebe’s attention-seeking push the family towards revelation.

Twenty years later, the Bright children have remained close to the cliff edges, russet sand and moody ocean of their childhood. Behind the beautiful surfaces of their daily lives lies the difficult landscape of their past, always threatening to break through. And then, one night in late summer, they return to the house on the cliff…

Gripping and evocative, Bluebottle is a story of a family bound by an inescapable past, from the award-winning author of The River Baptists and Hannah and Emil.

  • taking 4 generations on a cruise to Tasmania



  • Taking my 15 month old to nz to meet her great grandmother for the first time before she passed away.



  • My husband and I went to Sydney with relatives from around Australia and we all climbed the Sydney Harbour Bridge. It was an incredible holiday and an experience I will never forget.



  • It would have to be when we took our daughter to the Easter show 3 years ago. Ive never been so it was a whole new experience for me. So happy it was experienced with my daughter and my now husband. And I was 24 I felt like I was a kid again.



  • Family ski holiday Queenstown, New Zealand the people are so friendly and the accommodation had heated floors and the country looks so beautiful with a white coat of snow which started falling upon our arrival at the car rental. It felt like a welcome greeting. Every morning the ducks would come up from the lake to greet us it was just magic. Ski resorts were packed being school holiday season but were well run and I would thoroughly recommend it. Many precious memories were made.



  • Going to Scarborough with my family was most memorable as we had so much fun together.



  • Fiji…Sun, Beach and total relaxation……until a storm came and we had waves lapping at the front door of our bure!!



  • Singapore this year visiting friends who have chikdren of the same age who get along. As the youngest are now four, we enjoyed more outings together including the Night Zoo. It felt like a true break from domestic parenting with fabulous company. Bliss!



  • Driving for ten hours to revisit my birthplace and home for my first five years was a real trip down memory lane and sent tingles down my spine. Sharing it with my family was very special.



  • We took our children up to the north end of Western Australia and showed them a lot of the places where I was as a kid. 3 weeks away about 8500 klm a great trip and great memories were made.



  • None. We never went on hoildays as a family of seven, because we had lots of animals and nobody to feed, water or watch then. We had a country life. Never drive to far with seven people in a car, bit cramp.



  • We took our family to Disneyland in 2016 on our first family holiday it was the trip of a lifetime



  • Our best family holidays are probably the cheapest and simplest. Rather than racing around with tours we run around on the beach, or bushwalks. Rather then expensive meals, we have family picnics or chips at the park. Open aired cinemas over indoor cinemas. The simplest things are often the best



  • taking my two daughter and granddaughter on a cruise



  • i was little and we went to south west rocks like we did every summer we had a big old army tent and the old army cots to go with it, that summer there was a torrential down pour and we quickly discovered that the old army tent was full of holes we all got drenched
