08 December 2020


With borders opening to the sunshine state just in time for summer, there will be some wonderful offerings to put on the list in 2021.



The Langham, Gold Coast

Beachfront luxury on the Gold Coast’s fashionable Surfers Paradise doesn’t get more glam than the highly awaited Langham Gold Coast, which will throw open their grand doors at the end of 2021.

Taking pride of place in one of three towers of the Jewel development, The Langham Gold Coast’s luxury offering will span 169 rooms/suites and 170 serviced apartments, with views across the iconic Surfers Paradise skyline in one direction and the soul-soothing Pacific Ocean in the other. Not to mention one of the finest sand beaches in the world will be just a few steps away, thanks to direct beach access.


The hotel will also play host to the signature Cantonese restaurant T’ang Court. Elegant afternoon tea served at Palm Court in the lobby lounge and a luxe wellness spa with treatments inspired by Traditional Chinese Medicine.

Silky Oaks Lodge, Cairns and the Great Barrier Reef

Silky Oaks Lodge, a luxury treetop escape, has undergone a significant refurbishment and will reopen on 1 October 2021 with a refreshed vibe under the Baillie Lodge brand.

Influenced by its Daintree Rainforest surroundings, the lodge will integrate indigenous artworks and custom furnishings by Australian designers across six luxury villa styles, including the new ultra-premium 323-metre-squared Daintree Pavilion. The 40 luxury villas, alongside the destination-inspired restaurant, will complement the soul and heritage of the region, ready to welcome guests back to the iconic rainforest retreat.


Coming in 2022: Queen’s Wharf, Brisbane

Brisbane’s cityscape is about to be sensationally transformed thanks to the $3.6-billion Queen’s Wharf Brisbane development which will take up residence along Brisbane’s riverfront in late 2022. Poised to become the River City’s lifestyle and entertainment heart, the precinct will comprise four hotels, a casino, a residential tower and a skydeck, along with 50 restaurants, bars and cafes.

Queen’s Wharf Brisbane will also boast top-shelf accommodation brands including The Star, The Rosewood and The Ritz Carlton, which will sit proudly in the historic Treasury Casino, across the 7.5-hectare public space. By blending contemporary vision with the heritage roots of the existing buildings, Queen’s Wharf Brisbane will reaffirm Brisbane’s position as Australia’s new world city.
