Hotels in Australia

Patterned after the original Government House, this Darlinghurst hotel in a Colonial Georgian residence was once a nightclub (the hotel's name comes from a Rolling Stones concert at Altamont Freeway because the band members were regular guests here).

The restored Quamby Estate—a 17 1/2-mile drive from the city of Launceston—was once the centerpiece of an 1820’s ranch.

The retreat's nine wooden tree houses are scattered at the edge of Wooroonooran National Park.

Formerly Voyages Dunk Island.

A holiday in Tasmania may feel like a trip to the end of the earth. A reward for the long journey? The Saffire Freycinet, Tasmania's first world-class retreat.

The hotel is propped on a Pacific Coast headland, in a town that attracts both surfers and migrating whales. During the past four years the property has been updated from its origins as a 1970's motel.

Sandwiched on a narrow peninsula between Lake Merimbula and the Tasman Sea, this collection of apartments and three-bedroom townhouses is a prime spot for watersport enthusiasts, who get easy access to fishing, swimming, surfing, snorkeling, and boating alongside white sand beaches.

Australia’s most luxurious new hotel, Voyages Wrotham Park Lodge, sits in splendid isolation north of Cairns on a 1 1/2 million–acre cattle station—isolated, that is, if you don’t count the thousands of Brahman cattle, dingoes, emus, wallabies, and parrots that call the place home.
