The excitement is building in Australia for next month's solar eclipse. Typically, this area is thriving when the sun is out since it is the center of all-things Great Barrier Reef. The tropical town of Cairns will be smack dab underneath the projected path of the astrological phenomenon. Neighboring towns are gearing up to welcome guests that just need to NOT see the sun and here are our picks.
Located just north of Cairns in Palm Cove, Peppers Beach Club & Spa's beach-side hotel is a perfect spot to catch a glimpse of the eclipse while splashing around in the ocean. The hotel is offering packages that start at $937 AUD ($958 US) for a room with transfers to and from an exclusive off-site viewing platform. Off-eclipse time, you can check-out the sleepy beach village or sit poolside sipping cocktails.
Also in Palm Cove, Accor's Sea Temple Resort & Spa are also enticing astronomy buffs with complimentary breakfast. Since the resort isn't in a prime location like some others, the prices are bit more affordable. King-sized rooms start at $319 AUD ($326 US) so don't let the lack of beach access deter you because the sun will be in the sky!
Luxury resort and lodge operator, Peppers, has a new jewel in the crown of destinations across Australia. But get the images of beaches, sun and sand out of your head since this property is located in the ski fields of Victoria, just about a five hour drive from Melbourne.
The Australian brand of luxury boutique lodges and accommodation has opened their first ski destination in their portfolio. Originally acquired from a family-run business, Rundells Apline Lodge, was originally built in 1904, but rebuilt after a fire in 1990. The end result is a lodge fit for the Swiss Alps.
No, it's not Dubai--that's the skyline of Australia's Gold Coast, the beach strip at the southern end of Queensland that can best be described as down under's version of South Florida.
Both of those sculpted towers make up the new Peppers Broadbeach hotel, which welcomes its first guests this Sunday (ahead of a big splashy official opening early next year_. But this is more than just a new hotel opening--it's the Gold Coast's first five star accommodation to open in a decade.
