Discover Australia’s Top Luxury Lodges
Orpheus Island Lodge
For total isolation and relaxation, visit Orpheus Island Lodge, an all-inclusive Queensland holiday destination accommodating just 28 guests located amidst a constellation of islands within the Great Barrier Reef. When the Coral Sea becomes your playground, you’ll happily lose time kayaking, sailing, fishing and snorkelling the fringing reef. Or, perhaps embarking on a motorised dinghy adventure armed with a gourmet picnic to a private beach is more your thing.
For the ultimate once-in-a-lifetime experience, you can’t go past the island’s signature ‘Dining with the Tides’ dinner. Boasting the finest in locally sourced, seasonal fare, you’ll be taken on a gastronomical journey upon the island’s starlit pier under a canopy of twinkling stars, and that’s something that shouldn’t be missed.
Mt Mulligan Lodge
Book a holiday to the Luxury Lodges of Australia’s newest member – Mt Mulligan Lodge. Here, you can expect the epitome of outback luxury when you call home one of 8 retreats designed to blend seamlessly with nature in the shadows of namesake Mount Mulligan. Earthy tones, high ceilings, cinnamon-hued timber, and a solid legacy of raw, external charm, including a re-purposed rainwater tank bath tub on your verandah – the perfect spot to pop open the champagne and take in the majestic escarpment views.
When adventure calls, nothing beats getting behind the wheel of an all-terrain vehicle (ATV) to explore the expansive outback property, kayaking or paddle boarding the eucalypt-lined weir, taking part in a cattle muster or learning the history of the local gold and coal rush.
Experience the world’s oldest low-lying rainforest from the comforts of your own private ‘bayan’ (tree house) at the Daintree Ecolodge. Uniting nature and sustainability, the Daintree Ecolodge offers eco-luxury accommodation in a pure rainforest environment for your next holiday.
Enjoy a spa treatment at the Daintree Wellness Spa and degustation dinner at the on-site Julaymba Restaurant. Or, use the lodge as a base when you cruise the Daintree River spotting crocodiles, snorkel the Great Barrier Reef or zip-line through the emerald green rainforest canopy.
M.Y Flying Fish
Proving not all Queensland holiday destinations exist on land, M.Y. Flying Fish offers guests an unparalleled luxury yacht charter at the hands of a professional crew. Spacious accommodation for eight guests, immaculate Versace furnishings and mahogany finishes, a private chef, as well as a sun deck, alfresco dining, hot tub, heli-pad and lounging over three decks; M.Y. Flying Fish ticks every box on your luxury accommodation checklist.
And, the best thing is that there’ll be no crowds, so you can relax and take full advantage of the year-round sunshine whilst exploring the pristine islands, world-class dive sites and secluded cays of the Great Barrier Reef with your loved ones and friends!
