With a stunning mountain location in Queensland’s Scenic Rim, Spicers Peak Lodge puts you at the summit of luxury and comfort. Set within an 8,000-acre cattle station in Maryvale and perched 1,100 metres above sea level, this opulent private retreat is Australia’s highest non-alpine lodge where you can experience nature caressing your cares away.
At first glance, one can already see the understated elegance Spicers Peak Lodge provides. It has an architectural design made of cedar and bluestone, and its grand main lodge boasts high ceilings, stone fireplaces, and spectacular panoramas of the ranges from the terrace.
There are a total of four room types in this intimate Queensland accommodation. Two of these, the Lodge Suites and Lodge Spa Suites, are located in the main lodge; the 1 Bedroom and 2 Bedroom Private Lodges are situated at the edge of the escarpment, offering picturesque views over Spicers Gap.
The Lodge Suites cater to up to two guests. Each features plush comforts like king-sized beds and luxury linens, mini-bar, Nespresso coffee machine, a reading nook, workstation, and complimentary Wi-Fi Internet access. The marble bathrooms are furnished with Appelles bath amenities. Five out of the seven suites have stone fireplaces.
Meanwhile, the Lodge Spa Suites feature open bluestone fireplaces and a spa bath. Beautiful mountain views from the private veranda add to the soothing, serene ambience.
For couples or guests seeking total privacy, the 1 Bedroom Private Lodge is the perfect room choice. It boasts a large private living room, and a bedroom with a king-bed configuration. Like the accommodation types in the main lodge, the Private Lodge also has a mini-bar and LED TV with DVD player. However, those staying here further enjoy a private outdoor infinity spa, chaise lounge, dining seating, a wood-fuelled fireplace, and endless views of nature from anywhere in the room.
The 2 Bedroom Private Lodge goes a notch higher when it comes to serenity and exclusivity. Aside from the two private bedrooms with king-sized beds and ensuites, the main feature of this accommodation is the outdoor infinity spa overlooking Spicers Gap. Indeed, when you’re staying here, you’ll feel as if you’ve reached the highest point of sumptuous living.
A tip to all guests staying at the Private Lodges: don’t be surprised when local rock wallabies pay you a visit. At times, you may be seeing them catch forty winks at the outdoor lounge.
The on-site facilities are nothing short of exquisite, either, as they allow you to unwind and de-stress amid the bounty of nature. Take a refreshing dip in the infinity pool — its crystal blue colour matching that of the clear sky. Enjoy bocce, croquet or quoits on the surrounding lawns. Use the tennis equipment and play a game or two. Challenge friends or family to billiards or board games, or read a book by the loft. Pamper yourself with signature body treatments from Spa Anise, the mountaintop spa retreat that features plunge spa pools on the deck and a relaxation lounge with an open stone fireplace.
If you’re up for it, why not discover the outdoors? Spicers Peak Lodge has six different bushwalks within the property that you can explore on your own. You can also do a self-guided downhill mountain bike ride and see eucalypt forests and bellbirds. Guided activities are also available, such as the 4WD Spicers Gap Tour and Spicers Peak Guided Hike. As you travel around places like Main Range National Park and Ryan’s Lookout, your tour guide will provide historical and cultural information, further enriching your holiday experience.
And when hunger strikes, visit The Peak, the award-winning restaurant located in Wilkinsons Road, Maryvale. Here, you can taste contemporary Australian a la carte and degustation menus inspired by the seasonal, fresh local produce and regional wines of the Scenic Rim. Let chef, Doug Innes-Will, suggest gourmet cuisines for lunch or dinner, and learn why The Peak has been awarded two Chef Hats by Brisbane Times Good Food Guide in 2016 and Australian Good Food Guide in 2015.
Besides being an exclusive getaway where you can rejuvenate and reconnect with nature, Spicers Peak Lodge also makes for a unique alternative to the usual dreary meeting venues. The two meeting spaces are not only equipped with top-notch amenities; they also lend awe-inspiring panoramas of the wonderful landscape. These venues can accommodate a total of up to 16 guests, and may be booked for exclusive conferences and board meetings.
Reservations at this luxury country retreat come complete with all-inclusive services plus meals and beverages, ensuring a truly worry-free stay.
Before, you couldn’t and wouldn’t have imagined being on top of the world – but here at Spicers Peak Lodge, you now can be. What’s more, it only takes a 2-hour drive from Brisbane to reach the pinnacle of luxurious seclusion.
