Art At The Lodges

Carefully selected original and commissioned artworks are integral to the character, detail and design elements of each luxury lodge with many of the properties featuring regional artists’ creations. These not only add beauty and decorative detail to the lodges, they inform and enrich the sense of place and local connection. 

Art has the power to transport and transform us, the sensory power to leave a life-long impression. The artworks commissioned by the lodges reflect elements that are deep and complex. They tell the stories of place, celebrate and install awareness of the land and its people, their culture and unique appeal. 

During the course of a stay, guests can experience a collection of visual stories reflecting the region in which they stand. Often a reflection of people, community, culture and the natural world, the art reveals the idea of human identities, figures and forms; interwoven metaphors helping us to better understand and feel the place. 

For many, a stay at a Luxury Lodges of Australia is like sleeping in a personal gallery, with well-appointed rooms and suites an art sanctuary. There are opportunities to meet locally based artists or participate in workshops and unique, immersive art experiences. In some cases, there is the opportunity to purchase artworks, forging a lasting visual connection with place.
