“I want my clients to have excellent accommodation, with first-class rooms and extremely comfy beds!” That was the brief given by the Life’s An Adventure boss when he sent people out to research each and every Life’s An Adventure walk. After all, it’s those creature comforts that the walking tour operator prides itself on.
Excellent restaurants, top meals, quality wine and first-class accommodation. These are the things you can look forward to after a long day on the trail. So here’s a list of the accommodation available on just a few of the Life’s An Adventure guided walks.
Starting in South Australia, anyone doing the six-day Kangaroo Island walk has the Kangaroo Beach Lodge to look forward to. This lodge embraces the outdoors with large glass sliding doors offering uninterrupted views of the crystal clear waters of Kangaroo Beach Cove. Each lodge features four bedrooms (king beds or two twin beds in each room) and three bathrooms.
Heading to Victoria, those lucky enough to experience the Great Ocean Walk will eat and sleep at the Alkina Lodge, the closest luxury accommodation to the Twelve Apostles on the Great Ocean Road. It has been designed and built with sensitivity to the local landscape and compliments the surrounding natural environment. Each lodge has four bedrooms and two bathrooms.
Heading across the Tasman Sea, if you’re doing the ever-popular Three Capes walk you’ll be sleeping in the deluxe spa chalets at Stewart Bay Lodge. The two bedroom chalets feature a lounge, kitchen and laundry facilities. Dinner is at the lodge’s restaurant Gabriele’s where you’ll enjoy locally sourced ingredients in all your meals and excellent wines.
If choose the Freycinet Walk, you’ll be staying in Tassie’s iconic Freycinet Lodge with its spectacular views over Great Oyster Bay. You’ll stay in one bedroom cabins surrounded by native flora. Each cabin features a king size bed and queen sofa bed, ensuite and private balcony with views of the park’s natural landscape.
Doing the Bay of Fires? You’ll have two nights at Life’s An Adventure’s very own waterfront beach shack. With only a short 15 minute transfer from the end of the trail on day one of the walk and the ability to walk into the beach shack on day two, you’ll find this charming accommodation with its beach decor and lovely Ansons Bay views, the perfect place to put your feet up after a day’s walk.
If you get to the Pacific Island paradise of Lord Howe Island (which is actually a part of NSW!), you’ll be spending five nights at the famous Arajilla Retreat, set on the island’s lagoon surrounded by tranquil palms and banyan trees. You’ll be staying in beautifully appointed suites and enjoy wonderful fine dining and creative modern cuisine featuring local delicacies in its renowned restaurant with a different menu every day. The Retreat even has a wellness spa. Bliss.
And finally heading to the Sunshine State, if you do the three-day Scenic Rim walk you’ll get to stay at the luxurious Mount French Lodge. Guests will be able to sit on the terrace or in the magnificent lounge area with its huge gallery windows taking in the spectacular vistas.
