Nestled in outback of north Queensland, overlooking a pristinely beautiful lake, Crystalbrook Lodge is the face of boutique Australian luxury accommodation. The property caters to a maximum of 10 guests in five courtyard suites, ensuring the luxury of privacy and peace amid some of Australia’s most undisturbed natural landscapes.
The Lodge is part of the 85,000 acre Crystalbrook Station, rife with wildlife and adventure. Birds soar overhead, while fish and freshwater crocodiles claim their place in the lake. Warm days of sunshine and clear blue skies give way to cool evenings, with spectacular sunsets fading into brilliant starry nights. It’s a nature lover’s paradise, and the perfect place to experience the quintessential outback experience, with the added bonus of retiring to sumptuous accommodations at day’s end.
Never before have wilderness and elegance combined so seamlessly than in Crystalbrook’s design. Suites feature private courtyards, spacious bathrooms, and magnificently inviting king size beds. Guests can relax in the magnesium wet edge pool, taking in views of the lake, catch a feature film in the theatre room, or dine under the stars as part of the all inclusive offering. As a member of the Luxury Lodges of Australia collection, Crystalbrook Lodge delivers on a history of exemplary service and incomparable luxury.
