Australia’s high end experiential travel landscape has changed.

In recent years, Australia has seen the emergence and consolidation of a new breed of exceptional luxury properties and experiences. These properties have joined forces to showcase Australia’s unique style of sophisticated, carefree, barefoot, experiential luxury.

Luxury Lodges of Australia is a collection of independent luxury lodges and camps offering unforgettable experiences in Australia’s most inspiring and extraordinary locations.

In 2010, a number of Australia’s leading independent high-end tourism property owners formed Luxury Lodges of Australia. It is a member-owned, marketing association to promote both domestically and internationally the uniquely Australian breed of luxury experiential lodges. Saffire is one of these lodges.
