Indulge yourselves at one of these weekend getaway destinations. By Alissa Jenkins
STYLE AND ARCHITECTURE, TAS
Where? //
 Marion Bay House is situated on 100 acres overlooking Marion Bay, 40km east of Hobart Airport.
Why? // This gorgeous architectural triumph opened only late last year. Think designer furniture, a rotating fireplace, library, and tall windows that let in expansive views over surrounding fields, ocean and mountains. All in short driving distance of museums, beaches, parks and more.
How much? // From $600 per night.

CLASSIC BEAUTY, WA

Where? // Laurelville Manor is about 95km east of Perth, in the town of York – which is just over an hour’s drive from Perth Airport.
Why? // With wide verandahs, ornate high ceilings, an open fireplace and original timber floors, it’s essentially a classic two-storey homestead fitted with everything modern like flat-screen TVs and luxe linen. There are also some great gourmet delights nearby thanks to York’s strong agricultural industry.
How much? // From $200 per night, twin-share.

NATURE MEETS LUXURY, NSW

Where? // Sangoma Retreat is in the foothills of the Blue Mountains, a 70-minute drive north-west of Sydney.
Why? // Expect a bottle of French bubbly, Margaret River cheese and handmade chocolates on arrival – and then some. Enjoy mountain views from your private sundeck, unwind in front of a slow-combustion fireplace, then lap up the pool, sauna, or massage room. And if you’re after something other than the in-house gourmet meals, there’s nearby Kurrajong village to tickle the tastebuds.
How much? // Weekend packages from $1490 per couple, including two nights’ accommodation, massage for one, plus dinner, breakfast and Sunday brunch for two.
