A luxury destination in the Australian outback

Think Qualia on Hamilton Island, Southern Ocean Lodge on Kangaroo Island or Saffire Freycinet in Tasmania. All are among Australia's most exclusive travel destinations and all are members of the Luxury Lodges of Australia collection. 

Now this collection of "special occasion" destinations has new member: Mt Mulligan Lodge in Queensland, which offers a quintessential outback experience with lashings of luxury.


"Guests can immerse themselves in the Queensland outback in a captivating landscape steeped in indigenous significance and rich in pioneering heritage," says the blurb. 

Located on a private 28,000 hectare outback property, Mt Mulligan Lodge accommodates just 16 indulged guests at any one time. 

If offers three different room types, a main pavilion for guest meals and relaxation, an infinity pool and sunset bar. Each guest room is also assigned its own electric buggy to explore the sprawling property with ease.

A range of experiences have been designed to fit in with the rugged outback territory. 

Mt Mulligan Lodge offers guided tours of the goldfields including a demonstration of Australia’s oldest operating gold crusher at Tyrconnell, exploration of the historic Mount Mulligan coal mine and abandoned township, ATV adventures discovering the region, chef-prepared gourmet picnic hampers, wildlife spotting, sunset drinks overlooking the escarpment, stargazing, hikes, barramundi fishing in the weir and the chance to experience the day-to-day operations of a working cattle station.


Helicopter tours are also available for those with the fattest wallets. 

Located 150 kilometres north-west of Cairns, Mt Mulligan Lodge is accessible via a 35-minute scenic helicopter flight from Cairns or a 2.5-hour 4WD adventure from Cairns.

All stays include three gourmet meals daily, unlimited Australian wine, beer and soft drinks and daily group activities. 

My invitation appears to have been lost in the post.
