Australia has an extraordinary variety of hotels and lodges, most of which take advantage of the continent’s staggering natural beauty, diverse landscapes and gourmet culture. By no means an exhaustive list of luxury hotels in Australia – it would be impossible to name them all – we’ve highlighted a handful of exceptional stays to demonstrate the type of accommodation you can expect. From eco-luxe glamping on the fringes of the Indian Ocean to a safari-style bush hideaway, decadence in the desert and a pristine, off-grid island paradise, a stay in Australia is guaranteed to blow you away, so dive in and start dreaming.
Longitude 131˚ is Australia’s most celebrated luxury camp. Offering direct views of Uluru and across the desert to Kata Tjuta, dotted among the red-rust dunes of the Central Desert are sixteen tented pavilions, each affording a connection with the outback landscape and its heritage, as well as a glamorous base from which to explore the wilderness.
