Wrotham Park Lodge best unique accommodation in Queensland

Luxury outback cattle station Voyages Wrotham Park Lodge has been named the best unique accommodation at the prestigious 2008 Queensland Tourism Awards.

The awards were presented in a gala ceremony at the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre on Friday November 14.

Located in a spectacular setting, 300km west of Cairns in Queensland, Wrotham Park Lodge encompasses the spirit of the Australian outback combined with a unique, luxury resort experience.

At Wrotham Park Lodge, 10 luxury stockmen's 'Quarters' perch along the rim of the Mitchell River allowing guests to relax in comfort following a day's horse-riding, mustering, quad-biking or fishing - to name just a few of the activities. At the main Lodge, guests can cool off in the pool, enjoy reading about local history in the cool comforts of the library and sip on a Pinot Noir whilst dining on world-renowned '1824' premium grade beef.

A new interactive mustering tour was introduced this season, enabling guests to get a real feel for cattle station life and the rugged beauty of the Australian Outback. Encompassing 600,000 hectares of land with around 70,000 head of cattle, mustering takes place on Wrotham Park Station from mid-May to mid-September every year. Departing in the morning, guests are taken to the centre of the mustering action on the station.

Queensland Tourism Minister Desley Boyle added: "With all the comforts of a spectacular luxury resort set on a working cattle station, Voyages Wrotham Park Lodge has assured guests of a truly unique experience and is a worthy recipient of this award."

Wrotham Park Lodge will now progress to the Qantas Australian Tourism Awards to be held in Melbourne on 27 February 2009.
