Weekends Away Holidays in Queensland

Weekend away: EcoRidge Hideaway, Toowoomba

Simon Holt Let’s face it, there’s not a lot to do here, but therein lies the attraction – an immaculately-kept 3km walking track, stunning sunrise, the occasional wallaby, cold fridge and a stool for tired feet.

Weekend away: Mantra Mooloolaba Beach

Mantra Mooloolaba Beach is four-star comfort with a view of the beach from the shower.

Neil Herdegen You can't miss the walk-in spa and shower combo with a curved glass wall that lets you stand in the middle of the kitchen while you shower and enjoy the ocean view.

Weekend away: InterContinental Sanctuary Cove Resort

Sanctuary Cove was designed as a playground for the wealthy, and still retains its old charm.
