Silky Oaks Lodge Daintree Rainforest

A 90-minute drive north of Cairns, Silky Oaks Lodge awaits those seeking a rainforest escape. Stay in a treehouse and make yourself a cuppa and nibble away at a biscuit while hanging out in your own hammock, listening to the sounds of the rainforest. If you splurge and check-in to a Billabong Suite, you’ll feel like royalty with a fully stocked free minibar. Work off those complimentary snacks with one of many free activities. Use a kayak for a paddle up the Mossman River or find Zen during a yoga class.

Next Hotel Brisbane

Smack-bang in the middle of the Brisbane CBD, Next Hotel is the ideal choice for corporate travellers wanting to be among the action and holidaymakers after easy access to Queen Street Mall aka shopping, literally on their doorstep. After a busy day in the river city, enjoy four free minibar items (per day) while you control the Smart TV from your in-room Samsung Smart Device. If you’re on a later flight, visit the hotel’s In Transit lounge where showers and sleep pods have been installed for your convenience (and napping pleasure).
