Halcyon House 

Halcyon House is one of Australia’s most unique five star hotels, located in Cabarita Beach, just 15 minutes south of Gold Coast Airport, and 30 minutes north from Byron Bay. Condé Nast Traveler lists the hotel among the top 10 best in Australia, coming in at number five in their 2019 Readers’ Choice Awards.

The accommodation is most famed for its interiors, created by acclaimed interior designer Anna Spiro. Rich fabric upholstered walls, and handpicked antique treasures are found throughout the 21-room boutique property. (Take a look at the snaps from when our managing editor Sally Tabart visited!)  

Halcyon Spa is the latest addition to the accommodation, offering luxury experiences such as massages, facials, and treatments, as well as a unique dome-shaped steam room for ultimate relaxation! 

One TDF winner will win two nights in a Classic Room at Halcyon House, valued at up to $1400, and two 60-minute Halcyon Relax Massage spa treatment, each valued at $145.

Lon Retreat

Escape to 200 acres of rural and conservation land at Lon Retreat. Located in Point Lonsdale, on Victoria’s Bellarine Peninsula, this luxury accommodation consists of only seven suites across a sandstone lodge. 

Each room in Lon is individually designed with its own character and connection to the ocean, lakes and surrounding farmland owned by the same family for seven generations. Pristine beaches are just a stroll away via the accomodation’s private beach track.

Also on site is the Lon Spa, which offers guests the therapeutic effects of local mineral water fed soaking tubs, along with steam rooms and a heated mineral pool.

One TDF winner will win a weekend experience for two adults at Lon Retreat. The prize include two nights in a Luxury Suite, an artisan breakfast hamper, unlimited access to the heated mineral pools, and two 60-minute Blissful Marma Massages at Lon Spa. The total prize value is $1320.
