Luxury Lodges of Australia
Luxury Lodges of Australia is a collection of independent luxury lodges and camps offering unforgettable experiences in Australia’s most inspiring and extraordinary locations.
In 2010, a small number of Australia’s leading independent high-end tourism property owners formed Luxury Lodges of Australia. Upscale, experiential Australian travel has improved dramatically in recent years with the development of some outstanding destinations and properties. Together, these properties showcase Australia’s unique style of sophisticated and ‘barefoot’, experiential luxury.
The Luxury Lodges of Australia collection is designed to offer domestic and international travellers multiple itinerary options of great Australian experiences, each with luxury lodge accommodation as a ‘luxe base camp’ from which to explore, and then relax with fine food, sophisticated surrounds and friendly service.
Travellers may plan a comprehensive itinerary of Australia, a series of smaller trips or one-off visits confident that the style and standard of accommodation will be exceptional and the experiences unforgettable. Longitude 131° is distinguished as a founding member of the Luxury Lodges of Australia community.
