Australia has a way with nature. Like the Three Sisters rock formation born from a romantic legend. Or the charming little village of Mount Victoria that still gives you glimpses of early Australian settlement history. Or the botanic garden of Mount Tomah with its 5,000 species of plants. But best of all, Australia has translated nature into an unforgettable experience in luxury with a host of luxury lodges, exclusive by virtue of their remoteness, their special location and the limited number of guests they accommodate.
When time seems to stretch forever, you know you are in Qualia. Everything has been meticulously considered to relax the mind yet completely spoil the senses and combines a unique sense of space, openness and harmony.The pavilions are sensory and intoxicating offering uncompromising luxury, privacy and serene views of the island and sea. Yet, its highlight is the access to your own two-seater electric golf buggy which allows you to explore the rest of the Island at a leisurely pace. The spa is a great way to indulge and unwind. Or you could kick up some surf with some adventurous pursuits such as chartered cruises onboard their exclusive custombuilt cruiser, Sea kayaking, paddle boarding or snorkeling. Qualia is truly a sublime experience.
