Spicers Peak Lodge
Spicers Peak Lodge is a luxurious mountain retreat located two hours south-west of Brisbane. At 1100m it’s Queensland’s highest accommodation, enjoying views of the World Heritage-listed Main Range National Park, one of Australia’s most scenic wilderness areas.
The lodge is an architectural showcase best described as contemporary and classic. It’s also exclusive, featuring only 10 private suites and 2 private lodges.
Taking inspiration from its pristine high country setting, Spicer’s Peak Lodge has been created to echo the natural environment, with a warm, muted interior palette of charcoal, chocolate and caramel, blending perfectly with the materials used in the construction, chiefly stone, timber, tin and glass.
The surroundings are spectacular, providing opportunities for active pursuits as well as a soothing tableau against which to relax, refresh and reinvigorate. Those inclined to activity are well catered for and sightseeing is always an option in the Scenic Rim location. The nearby Granite Belt region is the wine capital of Queensland and a tasting tour is not to be missed.
The intimate nature of the retreat and the freshness of the surroundings flows through to the Lodge’s world-class Restaurant as well as Spa Anise, renowned for its powerful massage sequences and beauty treatments.
Whether it’s the remoteness of this mountain-top hideaway, the ski-lodge feel or the downright divine guestrooms, there’s an overwhelming sense of specialness about this place. – Sydney Morning Herald (Australia)
