Holiday in a luxury hotel in Australia with Small Luxury Hotels of the World to follow your own footsteps on a rainforest-fringed beach, join gourmet trails to boutique wine cellars, and taste the fruits of the sea at oceanfront restaurants.
Luxury city breaks in Australia
Sydney Harbour is yours for the day on a crewed luxury yacht charter from Rose Bay, stocked with sparkling Australian wine and seafood platters. Stroll Melbourne’s Southbank promenade for dry-aged Wagyu beef grilled to perfection. Ochre dot paintings tell Dreamtime stories at the Art Gallery of South Australia in Adelaide, where you can glide with black swans in a gondola on the River Torrens
Luxury beach holidays in Australia
A faraway beach on the Great Barrier Reef is a leisurely bareboat sail from the Whitsunday Islands, where the private world of a luxury Australian hotel awaits. Whales frolic off Central Coast beaches north of Sydney, where your day might begin with a morning surf or a canter on horseback. A beach hut with a private spa and Indian Ocean views at Yallingup is your base for sipping peach-scented chardonnay from Margaret River.
Luxury retreats in the Australian countryside
Golfing greens look on to eucalypt-scented valleys in the Blue Mountains, where rainforest bushwalks lead to tumbling waterfalls in sandstone canyons. Turreted luxury mansions and alpine-style chalets nestle amid pines in the Adelaide Hills, and shiraz grapevines lead to the picket-fenced farms of artisan cheesemakers in the Barossa Valley. Step into Tasmania’s colonial landscape in the lush Derwent Valley, for clipped hedges and English oaks shading Georgian country houses.
Experience a holiday in Australia with Small Luxury Hotels of the World, where minimalist chic decor blends with colonial architecture at a waterfront hotel, and a luxury beach house on a tropical island has an oceanfront spa.
