Set your sights on Australia this year as Queensland prepares to welcome some neat hotels and experiences in 2024. In fact, it’s easier than ever to reach the region thanks to a new, non-stop American Airlines flight from Dallas (DFW) to Brisbane (BNE) beginning this October.

Pelorus Private Island

Opened in January, Pelorus Private Island, a single, sprawling residence with four luxurious suites, is accessible only by helicopter or private yacht. Stay amongst pristine habitat and coral gardens.

Ardo Townsville

This sister property to Pelorus opened last December and marks Townsville’s first 5-star waterfront hotel. The 132-room hotel includes two restaurants, a day spa, rooftop pool and bar, and views of Magnetic Island.

Elandra Mission Beach

Also opened last December, Queensland’s newest boutique luxury resort overlooks the Coral Sea. Featuring 20 villas, a dozen two-story apartments and one pool deck, Elandra Mission Beach shows off its multimillion-dollar upgrades. The resort also includes a restaurant, bar and event venue.

Queen’s Wharf

Coming this August, Queen’s Wharf along Brisbane City’s waterfront brings exciting new restaurants, bars and even a hotel to the area. In fact, Queen’s Wharf will soon be home to the 6-star Rosewood Hotel, the brand’s first Australian property, as well as Dorsett Brisbane and The Star Grand.

Cunnamulla Hot Springs

Queensland’s newest artesian baths destination opened this January in the Australian Outback. Set along the Warrego River, visitors can soak in one of seven hot-spring pools filled with water from the Great Artesian Basin, one of the world’s largest and deepest underground freshwater sources. Here, local Indigenous groups host food and storytelling events in the gardens surrounding the springs.

Lady Musgrave Experience

Debuting this April, this innovative research platform in the Southern Great Barrier Reef offers some of the most rewarding and low-impact opportunities. Visitors can directly contribute to reef conservation through activities like experiential learning, data collection, marine-biologist-for-a-day programs, guided snorkel safaris, coral adoption and transplanting, and reef health surveys.

Amansara Review

It was more than a car journey; it was a transition between worlds. At our first hotel in Siem Reap, huge coaches constantly pulled up outside the lobby to deposit or receive international tour groups; we departed in very different style, in a 1965 black Mercedes limousine once owned by King Sihanouk. The mundanities of mass tourism were left behind. We progressed through the chaotic Cambodian streets in regal comfort and soon arrived at a solid gate.
