5 dreamy Australian accommodation choices for winter

The buckland

As the colder weather sets in, who wouldn’t be looking for some dreamy accommodation choices to escape to? After browsing through Beautiful Accommodation, we’ve found 5 winter hideaways perfect for a weekend away.

The Buckland – Luxury Retreat, VIC (pictured)

Tucked away in the beautiful Buckland Valley, The Buckland Luxury Retreat offers romantic 180 degree High Country views, including views across the majestic Mt Buffalo. Only 15 minutes from Bright, this area transforms into a colourful visual of red and orange at the beginning of autumn, and in winter it turns into a bright green, tranquil heaven.

Hillside Bed and Breakfast, TAS

Set on the banks of the Huon River in southern Tasmania, Hillside B&B offers stunning views of the Sleeping Beauty Ranges and the surrounding apple orchards and gardens. The cosy River Room, which faces downstream towards the Hartz Mountains, is perfect for couples looking for an elegant, light-filled space during winter.

Boonooloo Beach House, QLD

This modern beach house, right on the sands of Newell Beach, is picture perfect. With a wet edge pool only 20 paces from the ocean, you’ll truly feel like you’ve found your own little slice of paradise. Swing in a hammock under a palm tree or lounge on the spacious deck to relax. With open rooms, high ceilings and marble bathrooms, it’s the perfect hideaway spot at any time of year.

Smoky Cape Lighthouse B&B, NSW

Step back in time at Smoky Cape Lighthouse, which was completed in 1891. Its dramatic winding staircase and octagonal tower is just as beautiful as the sweeping coastal views. This B&B is perched high on a narrow headland in the gorgeous Hat Head National Park and is surrounded by natural bushland. Go swimming, bush walking or whale watching.

Winemakers Retreat, SA

This magnificent Riverland home is set on a working vineyard and date palm property. Here, you’ll dine on delicious food and wine and there’s a large outdoor terrace where you can relax and admire the parkland gardens, which are a “labour of love” for owners Paul and Debbie Kassebaum. Spring is a beautiful time to watch the flowers bloom at this gorgeous property, but winter is still beautiful… and even more peaceful.
