Kangaroo Island luxury lodge, Australia
Memorable parts? Walking into the lodge is like walking into the something from a James Bond set - and I mean that in the best possible way! The views from the main room pretty much are a show stopper - vast circular glass windows show off wilderness on every side. In front the majestic Southern Ocean, behind just wild bush as far as the eye can see... The rooms are very private, and look our directly onto the Ocean - we watched a big lightning storm come in as if we were all alone in... (more)Justin Francis

Mission Beach backpackers accommodation
Most memorable was just sitting on the balcony in the sunshine with a coffee and a book and looking across the Coral Sea...and waking up to the sounds of the forest...and seeing several cassowary... and eating in the beautiful restaurant. (more)Nigel Evers
The most memorable part of my holiday was a day trip snorkelling on the Great Barrier Reef - so beautiful and so addictive - I just wanted to keep searching for different corals and fish. (more)Imogen Howlett
We loved every minute of our stay! Our rainforest cabin was truly beautiful with polished wood floors, a comfy bed and best of all a stunning view onto some near pristine rainforest... This is ecotourism at its best. (more)Claire Morgan
From AU $35 - AU $165 per double room per night
