“The long two-storey lodge appears from the mist like a developing photograph. Blurred lines harden to a silhouette, then there it is, an improbable oasis on top of the world. If there were snowfields in Queensland, this is where you'd want your alpine chalet to be.” Susan Kurosawa, Weekend Australian
