Alice Springs sees a mass exodus over the Christmas/New Year period with all most everyone heading to a beach. Being smack bang in the centre of Australia, Alice happens to be the closest town to EVERY beach in Australia!  It has been a number of years since we left Alice at Christmas time, so this year we packed everything up and headed south to spend Christmas at Apollo Bay and enjoy some quality beach time.


The water at Apollo Bay is always freezing and Zelda did not take to it at all. In fact, one day she gave her self a sponge bath from a bucket of water on the sand rather than step into the water! Apollo Bay has the added bonus of having what feels like the coldest weather in Australia. So a 20 degree day, if cloudy, can feel freezing but if sunny can feel so so warm. It was rather nice to be there while Alice Springs sweltered through a week of 40+. How did you spend the Christmas break? Hope it was wonderful & am wishing you a very happy new year xx

New skin for summer?

It is a Medical aesthetic clinic run by trained doctors, nurses and dermal clinicians/therapists. All staff employed by deClinics has had extensive training in Light Based Therapies and Dermal Regenerative Therapies ensuring a highly skilled and qualified professional performs your treatment.


I love a good facial. There is just something about lying still for half an hour and having your face really cleaned. HydraFacial is an amazing tecnology that delivers the results of an advanced facial in under 30 minutes.  HydraFacial uses a patented technology that can simultaneously cleanse, exfoliate, clear congested pores and deliver nourishing serums.  In addition to instantly noticeable results after each treatment you will also experience longer lasting results with a short series of Hydrafacial treatments.

HydraFacial focuses on the unique philosophy of ‘Skin Health for Life’. When our skin looks good and feels good, we feel good too. So, for long-term healthy skin and a glowing complexion why settle for an ordinary facial, when you can choose a HydraFacial?

I love the whole experience surrounding a facial. The soft light, the music, the ambiance. This facial stripped that back to a clinical procedure. Bright lights. Chair that seems more like the dentist than a facial. The procedure however, felt like something was happening. Ever had that facial that seems as though all they’ve done is wash of your makeup and put on a bunch of cream? Well this one felt like it was working. The staff were lovely and they have a great range of skin care products for sale including Alpha-H and Dermalogica

deClinics is at 1/53 Todd Mall. Pop in and have a chat about your skin concerns today.
