When we think of beautiful and luxurious vacations, the Mediterranean and the Caribbean are usually amongst the first places that pop up in our minds. While these are fantastic locations with brilliant attractions of their own, they are also places that most travelers from the US or Europe have already been to. If you are one of those people who are looking for a brand new luxury travel destination, then you probably need to check out the following majestic and lavish holiday spots in Australia. If you haven’t been to any of these places before, you will be surprised at just how beautiful and accommodating the land down under can be.
The granite island is as remote as it gets and the Lizard Island resort makes sure that the experience of being in the middle of nature’s bliss is also as luxurious as it can get. You will only be able to reach the island from the Queensland coast with a 17-mile flight, and that flight itself is a trip worth taking if only for the scenic beauty. Once you are there, you can spend at least a week, if not more, exploring the Lizard Island National Park, the Great Barrier Reef, and the two dozen or so serene beaches which the island has.
If you thought Australia was all about beaches and desserts, then you have probably not heard about the Blue Mountains. Imagine a resort that has been built right inside a 7,000 acre wildlife conservancy in the majestic Greater Blue Mountains and you will have a vague idea about what to expect from the Emirates One & Only Wolgan Valley resort located here. The thrill of the adventure and the perfect Australian bush experience, coupled with the excellent food and relaxation offered at the resort makes the Wolgan Valley a must visit place for those that truly love nature.
Lord Howe Island
You will have to travel for no less than 600 km from the coast of New South Wales to reach the island and once you have reached it, you will know why the trip was worth it and then some. One of the UNESCO World Heritage Sites, Lord Howe Island is home to some truly amazing and unique natural sites, which include amazing forests and stunning beaches that are left untouched by the modern world. It is widely agreed that the experiences and sites on Lord Howe Island are so unique that they cannot be compared to that of any other island in the entire world. Nevertheless, the remoteness of the place will not bereave you of a five star stay at one of the luxury lodges on the island.
There is, of course, a lot more that Australia has to offer to its visitors, but if you are looking for a blend of luxury and natural splendor, it does not get much better than these places. We are not saying that one is better than the other, but once you have seen some of the totally unique wonders of Australia, chances are that you will probably never quite have a vacation similar to match the experience.
