This luxurious and exclusive mountain lodge is "adults-only" and splendidly located just over an hour's drive west from Brisbane and the Gold Coast in the World Heritage-listed Scenic Rim in the Main Range National Park.
Limited to just 10 couples at any time, it offers stylish, intimate accommodation reminiscent of mountain lodges in New Zealand and Africa with high ceilings, fireplaces, rich timber fittings and stylish decor - a secluded boutique retreat away from the pressures of modern life and up to 10 degrees cooler than the coast.
By day enjoy the wonders of the surrounding area and by night sample fine food and wine, relax by the fire or take in the brilliance of stars in clear mountain skies.
The property is architecturally stunning, designed and built to the highest standards imaginable and with no expense spared, opening in 2004 with little fanfare to quickly become one of Australia's premier retreats and South-East Queenslands best kept secrets!
Situated in 9000 acres of lush green parkland atop a 3700 ft mountain plateau, the expansive views to distant horizons are only interrupted by swirling mists that float through the surrounding bunya pines and magificent gums.
As an adult-only retreat it offers an intimate and relaxing experience in one of our country's most beautiful wilderness areas enhanced by the impeccable hospitality of the lodge staff.
