Top Resorts in Australia *

*This is a collaborative post.

The resorts in Australia are simply amazing; each location has a compelling reason for guests to visit there, experience, discover, and connect. In this piece, I will be providing insight into the luxury lodges of Australia.

When it comes to the top resorts in Australia, you’ll find a collection of privately owned and operated luxury resorts located across diverse regions in the country. Collectively, the resorts showcase Australia’s extraordinary diversity of region and experience.

I hope to get to visit some of the lodges as they are elegant as well as inspiring. They are not just a great place to stay, but a place to connect. The purpose of each resort is to provide connection, extravagance, and relaxation.

From elegant suites and nature-filled bush camps to private wildlife conservancies, these immaculately designed luxury accommodations are situated in Australia’s most dramatic landscape.

With over 250 individual experiences and activities, these resorts were fashioned to give guests a genuine sense of place.

To provide you with a better feel of these deluxe lodges, let me quickly run through some of the best resorts in the luxury lodges of Australia.

El Questor Homestead, the Kimberly

A perfect lodge situated in western Australia, the extravagance of the El Questor Homestead doesn’t at all match its rugged Kimberly landscape.

This resort is located on a cliff-top, glancing at the stunning chamberlain gorge, and provides accommodation for no more than 18 guests. Visitors are accompanied by a tour guide who are local experts of the vast land the resort covers.

There are bundles of memories to take away from the El Questor Homestead. You can take a swim in the thermal springs or hike and cruise through gorges.

I enjoyed the scenic flight I took to the world heritage-listed Bungle Bungle in the Purnululu National Park. It was a real delight and a memorable experience for me. The link here has more on having a lovely time in Kimberly.

Sal Salis, Ningaloo

Located in Western Australia, the Sal Salis is only a few steps away from the world heritage-listed Ningaloo.

It is a 15 luxurious wilderness tent that is blessed with wildlife. It allows you to live close to nature. It is a place where you can snorkel with turtles, manta rays, and various tropical fishes.

I can say that Sal Salis is one of the best places to swim with sharks, whales, and humpback whales. It is also filled with dunes that give you a touch of safari life.

If you are a person who admires the safari lifestyle, I strongly recommend you visit Sal Salis.

Bamurru Plains, Mary River Floodplain

Situated in the northern territory, this exclusive ten bungalow wilderness lodge offers guests a feel of “wild bush luxury.” It is located in the Mary River floodplain, next to Kakadu national park.

They are several guided activities for guests, including fishing trips, crocodile spotting, bird-watching tours, airboat safaris, and 4WD’s safaris. You can also ride the helicopter on guided tours to several nature-filled locations. One I particularly enjoyed was the tour I had to the rock art galleries of Arnhem land.

The bungalows in this exclusive lodge are set up so visitors will get in touch with the bush’s world. The sunset cocktails glancing at the flood plain provides guest with a visceral sense of place.

It allows you to see wildlife from your tents. Something you can’t get anywhere else.

Arkaba, Flinders Ranges

The Arkaba Flinders ranges is 60,000 acres filled with wildlife. The habitat is home to wide ranges of birds and wildlife and offers a great conservation story. It is a homestead with only five guest rooms.

So, you only get a thrilled and memorable experience at Arkaba if you’re visiting with only a few friends. A scenic flight over the Wilpena Pound, a guided day or night walk, or a safari tour to see wildlife in their natural habitat will give you the splendor of this beautiful resort.

The Louise Barossa Valley

This grand valley boasts of 15 elegant and spacious appointed suites. Each of the suites has its terrace overlooking the surrounding vineyards of the Barossa Valley.

The chef tasting menu has garnered regional, state, and national awards and recognition. And Louise Barossa valley is home to over a hundred wineries and more than seventy boutique cellar doors. So you can expect to find showcases 0f top-quality wine tasting and memorable cuisine experience for visitors.

There are several wine tastings arranged for interested guests. Enjoyable diversions such as hot air ballooning, cycling, hiking, and relaxing massages are also available in this resort. With just an hour’s drive, you can find yourself in Australia’s most regarded food and wine region.

Lizard Island, Great Barrier Reef

 Lizard Island is the most exclusive great barrier reef lodge situated on a coral cay. It means that guests can get off the beach to go snorkeling with turtles and colorful tropical fishes.

There are several kinds of splendors in this exclusive resort. Guest can arrange to have a romantic picnic at any location. When it’s time to cuddle with your companion in your rooms, you can pick from any of the 40 private suites available.

They have got a pavilion and villa suite that offers superb cuisine and an indulgent spa treatment. The spa treatments are exciting after snorkeling amidst tropical fishes or diving into the world-renowned cod-hole. You can check this website for tips for hiking in Australia.

Emirates One & Only Wolgan Valley, Blue Mountains

This elegant and exclusive lodge is situated at the foot of towering cliffs. It occupies just one percent of the 28-square kilometers conservation reserve—a reserve located between two national parks in the world-heritage Greater Blue Mountains.

In this resort are 40 standalone pavilions. Each of the pavilions comes with a private enclosed swimming pool and spacious and exquisite sleeping quarters.

There a lot of memorable experiences you can have while visiting this resort. You can enjoy a 4WD wildlife safari, and you can choose to go bird-watching or go nighty spotting for wildlife.

You can choose to go mountain biking, cycling, or horse riding for those who particularly enjoy riding. For couples who are looking for comfort and relaxation, I suggest you try their spa session. It has an elegant and expansive main lodge where you can enjoy the finest cuisine.

I strongly recommend you visit the luxury lodges of Australia. Home to the best resorts, devoted to connecting their visitors with a sense of place.
