6 Noteworthy Luxury Lodges From Traveller

Apr 07, 2022

Spicers Peak Lodge, Bamurru Plains, El Questro Homestead and Silky Oaks Lodge make it onto Traveller’s list of ‘Six of the best Australian luxury lodges’ by writer, Ute Junker.

“Sitting in the picture-perfect Glasshouse Mountains, Spicers Peak Lodge is just a two-and-a-half-hour drive from Brisbane, but there is a real sense of arrival when you finally get here. Turn off the road onto the property and a 12km unsealed trail leads you ever upwards towards the homestead. When you step through the front door, prepare to be dazzled. The soaring dimensions, the floor-to-ceiling windows framing the panoramic outlook and that massive bluestone fireplace are all designed to let you know you have arrived in a special place. There are plenty of bush trails to explore on the 3000-hectare property, and the degustation dinners are a highlight.” – Ute Junker, Traveller.
