“Only a two-hour drive from Brisbane, this is the perfect country getaway to experience the wonder of Australia’s natural beauty. In the summer, walk through the national park and see the native wildlife, or in the winter gaze up at the mystical Milky Way - as this retreat is located 1100 metres above sea level it’s perfect for keen star gazers.”
Perched on a mountaintop in Queensland’s Scenic Rim, Spicers Peak Lodge provides panoramic views of Main Range National Park and lies on a 9,000-acre cattle station. It’s Australia’s highest non-alpine lodge.
This is an adults-only retreat offers an eclectic mix of contemporary architecture and classic design. Ten spacious and elegantly appointed suites and two private lodges feature king-size beds, marble bathrooms and all modern amenities. Most of the suites also come with stone fireplaces. The private lodges are stunning and come with terraces and infinity pools offering spectacular views.
The restaurant serves up innovative Australian cuisine accompanied by superb wines. All meals and drinks are included, and the degustation menu is not to be missed.
There’s a multitude of adventures available. Experience a scenic helicopter flight; go mountain biking or bushwalking; discover vineyards; or head on a 4WD safari. Back at the lodge, cool off in the pool, play tennis or be pampered at the spa.
