Spicers Peak Lodge, Queensland
Spicers Peak Lodge is 160 kilometres (100 miles) south-west of Brisbane, the capital city of Queensland. This sophisticated getaway has a focus on fine dining and is located on a working cattle property in the stunning World Heritage-listed Main Range National Park.
The lodge is a grand mountain hideaway with only 10 suites and two private lodges. The property's interior design features soaring ceilings, timber beams and floor-to-ceiling glass panels, providing vistas of green picture-book countryside. Bathrooms are stocked with L’Occitane bath products while spa rooms have circular spa baths with glass panels overhead.
Activities include long walks through the forest and pastures, mountain biking, tennis or a four-wheel-drive tour of the property and more. Dinner is a seven-course degustation menu served with different Australian wines to match each course.
