Last night Hijacked scoped the red carpet at the fifth annual AACTA Awards held at The Star in Sydney. Chatting with some of the most popular faces in Aussie film and television, we asked them about their perfect summer vacation spot to get some travel inspo flowing.

Kerri-Anne Kennerley, Celebrity Apprentice Australia mentor & morning TV host

HJCKD: Where’s your dream summer vacation?

Kerri-Anne: Barbados and [playing] golf. I’ve been there before and I love going there to play golf. It’s just magnificent. Fun people. Beautiful place. It’s everything you could dream.

Justice Crew, band and former Australia’s Got Talent competitors

HJCKD: If you could go anywhere on a summer break, where would you go?

Justice Crew: Bali with the crew. We’re Bali boys. The more the merrier, then it’s always a party. Greece is also good. Or the Caribbean, or Morocco or somewhere in Europe. Anywhere but here!

Magda Szubanski, Open Slather actress

HJCKD: There’s a plane leaving tomorrow to take you to your dream holiday. Where is it going?

Magda: Paris, without a doubt. Paris.

Miranda Tapsell, Love Child actress

HJCKD: If you could go anywhere for summer vacation, where would it be?

Miranda: I think I’d love to go to New Orleans, and go to the Jazz and Soul Festival because I just love that era and that style of music. My hometown Darwin has a similar sort of weather – I’m used to that humidity … I thrive in it so I’d love to go there.

Sophie Lowe, The Beautiful Lie actress

HJCKD: If you could jet set anywhere tomorrow, where would you go?

Sophie: I’m really thinking about this. I don’t know! That’s such a hard question! I’m thinking I’d like to go somewhere nice and relaxing, but also want to go to New York, so I can’t choose. Actually I’d go to England because that’s my home and that’s where I’m born. But that’s kind of boring. Sorry.

Peta Sergeant, House Of Hancock actress

HJCKD: If you could go anywhere for summer vacation, where would you go?

Peta: Zanzibar! That’s high on my list. My sister just came back from there and the photos are amazing.

Ky Baldwin, Peter Allen: Not The Boy Next Door actor

HJCKD: If you were to go on your dream holiday tomorrow, what would your number one destination be?

Ky: I’d have to say Hawaii or Disneyland. They’re both cool!

Bindi Irwin, Dancing With The Stars USA winner

HJCKD: If you could go anywhere in the world for a vacation, where would you go?

Bindi: Anywhere? I’d have to say Tasmania. Honestly, it’s wonderful. Cradle Mountain is stunning and there’s great wildlife. I want to go there now!

Patrick Brammall, Glitch and Ruben Guthrie actor

HJCKD: Where would you go for a summer holiday?

Patrick: Honestly, I wouldn’t go anywhere. I’d stay here in Sydney. I’ve been living in Los Angeles for a while and I just came back this morning. It’s winter there, and there are still blue skies, but just being here, oh God. The air meets my blood and the cricket’s on. Bunch of Australians around me. I honestly wouldn’t go anywhere for summer other than here.

Lincoln Lewis, Gallipoli actor

HJCKD: If you could go on a vacation tomorrow, where would you go?

Lincoln: I’ve always wanted to go to Bora Bora. I love tropical stuff. I also want to check out other islands like the Cook Islands. But I’m in love with Western Australia; Western Australia is amazing. I’m going over there in the New Year to check out some places and islands and stuff. But have you ever heard of Lady Elliott Island? Lady Elliott Island is just off the coast of New South Wales. It’s incredible; if you see it, you will froth. It’s the best.

Ksenija Lukich, E! host

HJCKD: If you were lucky enough to go anywhere for a break over summer, where would you go?

Ksenija: I would go to Mexico or the Bahamas. Somewhere tropical would be nice. Relax and have a cocktail. We have amazing beaches here, but I’ve been to the beaches here all my life. I want to go somewhere new. Get me on a plane!
