Bamurru Plains
Winner: Wild Bush Luxury
Runners-up: Maria Island Walk, Tas; Montague Island, NSW
The strength of talent in this category is written in its top three. But Wild Bush Luxury trumps the category this year with its portfolio of properties in some of our most fragile beauty spots. Among them is Sal Salis, an African-style safari camp in WA's Cape Range National Park, with ringside access to Ningaloo Reef's whale sharks. Bamurru Plains is a glamorous outback address (next door to Kakadu) where guests stay in five-star comfort on a working buffalo station beside the Mary River floodplains. Wild Bush Luxury also showcases World Heritage wilderness through its Blue Mountains Private Safaris, and later this year it will relaunch the award-winning Arkaba Station in the Flinders Ranges.
