If you’re looking for the perfect autumn escape then look no further. As the leaves begin to fall and the weather cools, make the most of those last shreds of sunshine heading away for the weekend. It might not be beach weather anymore, but autumn is the perfect time to explore the outdoors. Discover our top five picks around Australia:
Skyhouse Retreat (Western Australia)
The 360 degree views at Skyhouse Retreat provides the ultimate connection to nature, whether it’s at floor level, or up amongst the trees. If you manage to drag yourself out of bed, away from those amazing views, Denmark is a stroll away. If walking is your thing, the Bibbulmun track is even closer.
Ovens Valley Motor Inn (Victoria)
The beach is out of the question, and so is snowboarding. Don’t fret, we’ve found a solution. The Ovens Valley Motor Inn is situated in the heart of High Country and set against a breathtaking mountainous backdrop. Take the whole family along because you’ll have tennis, hiking or cycling to choose from - and a few cellar doors you might want to venture into. Remember to finish your high energy day with a session in the guest sauna.
Risby Cove (Tasmania)
Food and wine enthusiasts will fall in love with Risby Cove. It’s the only waterfront accommodation in the town, and can house up to 24 guests. There’s an incredible restaurant showing off the local produce and Tasmanian wines or, alternatively, Gordon River and the surrounding national parks are waiting to be explored. Whether that’s by foot or by helicopter is up to you.
Noosa Springs Golf and Spa Resort (Queensland)
With a luxurious day spa and 18-hole immaculate golf course, Noosa Springs is all for a few days all about you - a recipe for a blissful weekend. The upmarket resort is situated only a short trip away from the dining and retail delights of Noosa meaning you’re not too far from civilization, but just far enough to relax.
Grapevines Boutique Accommodation (New South Wales)
Goodbye concrete and glass, hello lush green pastures and blue skies. This isolated property is perfect for those wanting to escape the kids or get away with a bunch of friends, with vineyards just a step away.
