When travelling from Western Australia across to the Northern Territory, make a final pit stop at Lake Argyle Resort, which sits on the banks of Australia’s second largest man-made freshwater reservoir. Known as the Jewel of the Kimberley, Lake Argyle offers a range of accommodation from powered caravan sites and cabins to villas with a lake view, and the best part is that all guests have access to the infinity pool. The 35-metre wet-edge pool includes a spa and boasts unrestricted views of the Kimberley.
Nestled amongst 45 acres of subtropical rainforest, Byron at Byron is a lavish resort where relaxation begins to embrace you from the moment you enter the foyer. Only minutes from Byron, the resort offers a range of suites set within the forest canopy as well as spa and dining facilities. Byron at Byron also features a 25-metre heated pool boarded by lush greenery.
Perched between Cape Tribulation and Port Douglas is a boutique resort where guests can sleep in thatched tree houses and wake to the chatter of tropical birds. Styled with a traditional Balinese look, Cockatoo Hill Retreat is a hidden paradise, and nowhere does that feel truer than when wading out into the freshwater, wet-edge infinity pool which overlooks the Coral Sea, Alexandra Bay, and the Daintree Rainforest.
Qualia, meaning ‘a collection of deeper sensory experiences’, is a luxury resort situated on the northernmost tip of Hamilton Island. Aiming to capture the magnificence of the Great Barrier Reef, architect Chris Beckingham designed the resort to sit harmoniously within its surrounds. Qualia features 60 guest pavilions, two restaurants, a spa, gym, and library, as well as two pools. Overlooking the tranquil waters of the Whitsundays, Pebble Beach pool is the minimalist of the two, while the Beach House pool is shaded by palm trees.
