2016 Australian Hotel Awards: Regional Hotel of the Year Finalists

In a country as vast as ours, where distances can be measured in days rather than hours, there's a particular joy reserved for finding an exceptional inn at the end of the road. The best regional hotels become destinations in themselves - reasons to load up the car, or get on the plane, and transport yourself somewhere special. 

Stay tuned as we announce the finalists in all categories in the lead up to our 2016 Australian Hotel Guide Awards on 25 May. Our 2016 Australian Hotel Guide will be on sale on 26 May.
