We look for hidden holiday spots around the country to inspire your next beach, forest or bush getaway.


If the idea of a room of one’s own appeals, how about a whole glass canopy house, or an intimate B&B, or a 230-acreage property for some quiet time away from the city bustle?

Here are six secluded places to stay that’ll make you and your travel companions feel like the only people on the planet.

Crystal Creek Rainforest Retreat – Crystal Creek, NSW

Ever fancied a life lived up in the treetops? If so, an abundance of rainforest treehouse accommodations across Australia are available. Perhaps the most secluded of these are the glass-enclosed bungalows at the Crystal Creek Rainforest Resort.

There might not be a better way to experience northern NSW’s rainforest than via the rather spectacular glass treehouses at Crystal Creek; they’re isolated sky boxes that get you up close and personal with the surrounding flora and fauna. The bungalows are spacious and open-plan, designed to draw the outside rainforest in, while offering some privacy from the rest of the Crystal Creek resort. The bungalows are entirely self-contained and include both an intimate indoor spa bath and an outdoor balcony shower.
