Over the past decade or so, Australia and its just as spectacular neighbour across the Tasman have established a reputation for being two of the most sought-after destinations in the world. This reputation has come about from not only the extraordinary landscapes both countries boast but also the inspirational way Australasian architects and designers have used these landscapes to fashion innovative and memorable places to escape to.This beautifully photographed publication takes you on a visual journey through the most remote of these idyllic getaways, from luxurious but laidback lodges in the Outback to sophisticated eco resorts in the rainforest and sleek retreats by the sea. Some of the destinations are easily recognisable, such as the far-flung but first-class Burrawang West Station and the celebrities' favourite, Huka Lodge in New Zealand; but others are refreshingly lesser known, such as Capella Lodge on Lord Howe Island, the culinary hideaway known as the Lake House in country Victoria, and Awaroa Lodge in Awaroa Bay, New Zealand, a luxury lodge that's only accessible by water, air or an invigorating three-day hike.
Whether your taste veers toward the Champagne lifestyle and designs that seduce with their total luxury or the quieter, more tucked away hideaways that offer style, service and solitude in equal measure, Remote Luxury - Top Resorts Down Under will enthrall and delight.
