This collection is inspired by ABC Classic FM's 2018 Getaway broadcast, which asked audiences to share the best place in Australia to wake up, and which spurred a flood of responses about the most meaningful, the most exhilarating and the most evocative places in their lives.

Where's your favourite place to wake up? Maybe you yearn for a beachside retreat, with the gulls wheeling and the salt air to greet you. Or the serenity of the bush, in that moment of tranquillity before the heat of the day. Perhaps it's home, and you're lucky enough to always wake to your ideal scene.

Every morning, ABC Classic FM takes listeners to that favourite place, wherever they are. But it's not just about escape. Use the music to get you into your day, as well as giving you a moment out of it.

This album draws together some of the most sublime music ever written, from old favourites to new discoveries. Often inspired by the natural world, this music isn't just for those early hours: reach for it whenever you need a dose of pure bliss.
