Where you stay in Australia depends on what you’d like to do and see. For some of the iconic tourist spots and sensational surf, Sydney should be your first stop, while culture vultures will love Melbourne’s cosmopolitan vibe. For fantastic food and wine, head south to Tasmania, or beach-hop up the Queensland coast. For truly unique experiences, head west to Broome in the Kimberley region in Western Australia, north to Darwin and Kakadu National Park or to breathtaking Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park where centuries old Aboriginal history awaits.
Each Australian state has its own luxury escapes, but there are some that go above and beyond. Nestled within the Greater Blue Mountains area in NSW, Emirates One&Only Wolgan Valley delivers all-inclusive luxury, with a private pool, gourmet breakfast and two resort-based nature activities per day. In the Whitsundays in Queensland, qualia delivers five-star island living, while on the edge of the Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park in the Red Centre, Longitude 131 offers jaw-dropping views of Uluru.
