The Best Australian Getaways For 2022 

Australian Getaway Idea #1 – Outback Adventure at Mt Mulligan Lodge


My Mulligan Lodge is located right in the heart of Queensland’s magnificent outback. One thing you’ll notice when you’re there is just how many stars are visible in the night sky without any city lights around. Stargazing is a real treat at Mt Mulligan Lodge and is one of the drawcards to the region.


One thing this part of Queensland is renowned for is the famous Barramundi and Mt Mulligan Lodge offers visitors the opportunity to go out Barramundi fishing. If you happen to hook a big one, you can even bring it back to the lodge to have the chefs prepare it for your evening meal.


ATV outback adventure rides are also on the agenda when visiting Mt Mulliganed. Explore dry creek beds and outback tracks and meet some of the local wildlife. An ATV tour is truly one of the best ways to explore the area.

Australian Getaway Idea #2 – Tranquil Getaway at Orpheus Island


Orpheus Island is an exclusive island resort that offers one of the best tropical island experiences in the Great Barrier Reef. This luxurious Australian getaway location really is the epitome of a tropical paradise.


Gourmet dining is one thing you’ll definitely experience when you book a stay on luxurious Orpheus Island. Award winning chefs prepare mouth-watering meals made from produce that is mostly grown, caught or sourced locally. Orpheus island really is a food lover’s paradise and a fantastic place to enjoy some of the world’s best seafood dishes.


Paddle boarding is an activity that’s popular on the island, with its sunny days and crystal clear, calm waters. Paddle boarding is great exercise as well as being a very relaxing way to spend a few hours out on the water.


Of course, with Orpheus Island perfectly situated to give visitors access to the magnificent Great Barrier Reef, no visit would be complete without taking a charter boat out to the reef for some snorkelling, diving or just some leisurely sightseeing. There are simply so many parts of the reef you can explore when you use Orpheus Island as your base.

Australian Getaway Idea #3 – Wellness Retreat at Daintree Ecolodge


A wellness retreat in the middle of a tropical rainforest is the perfect way to detox and unwind from the stresses of everyday life. That’s exactly what you’ll experience at this unique Australian getaway destination, tucked away right in the heart of the Daintree Rainforest.


There is no more tranquil setting to embark on some rainforest walks, where you can meet some of the local wildlife and take in all the stunning scenery. The area even has some of Australia’s most endangered plant species.


Of course, one of the features of the lodge is being able to switch off and disconnect for a few days while self-indulging with a wellness spa and even some yoga classes. Both activities will leave you feeling relaxed and rejuvenated. By the time you leave the Daintree Ecolodge, you will feel like a re-energised and brand new person.
