2016 Australian Hotel Awards: The Winners

We've travelled all over Australia and experienced a hotlist of elite lodges and resorts, unique places to stay, budget hotels, spas and more. Here are the very best.

It's boom-time in the Australian hotel industry. That's great news for all of us who love to check in at special addresses across this amazing continent. It's also great news for the 2016**Gourmet Traveller Australian Hotel Guide.

We check into reviewed hotels anonymously and pay our own way. What we experience at these top Australian addresses is the same as what you, our readers, would experience. No special treatment; no added extras. Just honest, informative reviews of the best hotel experiences around the country.

It's time to get packing.
