Set in the Blue Mountains of the Great Dividing Range, this splendid destination resort on a 7,000-acre former cattle ranch is a two-and-a-half-hour drive northwest of Sydney. The 40 freestanding bungalows come with screened verandas and private plunge pools. Interiors make extensive use of local materials and provide leather wing chairs and sofas grouped around double-sided fireplaces. Bedrooms offer four-poster beds and stylish slate-faced baths. Two excellent restaurants serve contemporary Australian cuisine. Other amenities include a heated pool, a gym, tennis courts and a first-rate spa. Activities are highlighted by horseback riding and four-wheel-drive “safaris.” Overall, this fine property provides a memorable taste of the Australian great outdoors.
