Quite frankly, we're obsessed. Aussies have some major attachment issues with their mobile devices - ironically more so when they're on holiday.
Australia, it’s time to disconnect! Some of us might find this too much of a shock to the ‘social media’ system, so we’ve put together a hot-list of beautiful escapes in Australia where you’ll be forced to put down your device/s. Why? There’s not only the beauty of Mother Nature to marvel, but there’s little-to-no mobile coverage in these holiday hot spots. Perfect!
So, what better way to force yourself to disconnect than heading somewhere with very little phone reception? You don’t even have to go far to switch off. Here are our top five suggestions for a tech-free break in Australia.
NSW: Emirates Wolgan Resort and Spa
Just a few hours from Sydney, this six-star resort will make you feel a world away. Not even Telstra’s nationwide network can be picked up out here. Relish the peace and quiet of the bush, sit by the fire or indulge in a relaxing spa.
Tasmania: Peppers Cradle Mountain Lodge
Located on the edge of the spectacular World Heritage listed Cradle Mountain-Lake St Clair National Park, just 1.5 hours from Launceston, this is the perfect destination to relax, retreat and rejuvenate.
Northern Territory: Wildman Wilderness Lodge
Nothing says remoteness like the Top End of Australia. Stay in this luxurious retreat in the heart of the majestic Mary River National Park Wetlands of the Northern Territory, just outside of Kakadu and make crocodile spotting your morning ritual rather than replying to work emails.
WA: Eco Beach Resort
Choose between glamping in a luxury safari style eco tent or staying in your own solar powered eco villa overlooking the Indian Ocean. This Kimberley region retreat is just 90 minutes south of Broome and is all about sustainability, fresh produce and relaxation.
QLD: Daintree Eco Lodge & Spa, Daintree
Imagine switching off by staying in heart of the world oldest rainforest. Bliss! Situated between the Mossman and Cape Tribulation end of the Daintree National Park, this lodge & spa is escapism at its best.
