Luxury can be found in many resorts around the world, from Abu Dhabi to the Seychelles, from Venice to the Maldives. However, it’s a myth that you have to head overseas to experience a genuinely luxurious holiday because there’s a wealth of high-end experiences right here in Australia that can rival some of the very best on the planet.
