When we talk about secluded spots, Glass on Glasshouse steals the show. With two floor-to-ceiling glass walls, only a skyful of stars will be witness to your secluded cottage hideaway (and maybe a few nosey kangaroos and kookaburras). If you’re lucky enough to nab one of the three cottages for a few nights, you’ll have a front row seat to watch as much wildlife and mountain views as you can fit through two panes of glass.
We know that Queensland is a place where dramatically sculpted landscapes are never far away, but even we were surprised to find such a secluded and peaceful spot only forty five minutes drive from Brisbane. For as far as the eye can see, there is unspoilt, natural beauty to marvel at. Explore the local landscape on foot, pick strawberries at a local farm, or simply do nothing as you enjoy some of the most blissed-out chill time going.
The cottages’ design is both modern and stylish, and doesn’t skimp on the kind of gadgetry expected of hotels located in civilisation. The bathroom has an indulgent double-spa bath, but the main attraction is without doubt those panoramic glass windows that give startling views of the Glass Mountains, and at night, a panorama of stars twinkling like jewels against the black canvas of space. It’s that wow.
Why we like it
Nature and luxury blend together effortlessly at Glass on Glasshouse and goes to show you don’t have to get muddy and sleep in a grubby tent to get in touch with nature. The middle of nowhere has never been so accessible.
