Australia hits the heights in hotel rankings

The Tatler magazine, known for its respected opinion on many of the world's finer things, has named eight Australian hotels in its annual list of the 101 best establishments in the world, further proof of the country's growing attraction for even the most discerning travellers.
27 January 2012
Two hotels in New South Wales, three in Queensland and one each in the Northern Territory, Tasmania and Victory have been named in the UK magazine's 2012 Tatler Travel Guide.

"It's great that Australia's tourism product is getting talked up in this way," said Andrew McEvoy, managing director of Tourism Australia.

"Australia has long had and continues to offer accommodation options which rank amongst the best in the world, and it’s always pleasing and important to see such properties getting the international recognition which they deserve."

Australian tourism continues to grow in prestige and it's not only Tatler that has recognised the fact with 11 of the nation's properties being included in the Condé Nast Gold List for 2012 and Southern Ocean Lodge on Kangaroo Island has been recently named Hideaway of the Year by Andrew Harper's Hideaway Report.

Mr McEvoy is obviously delighted with all of these accolades but it has perhaps the inclusion in Tatler's esteemed publication that has most delighted him:

"These eight properties clearly represent world's best in Australia, and it is exactly these sorts of exceptional tourism experiences that allow us to demonstrate to the rest of the world why there truly is nothing quite like Australia."

If you want to travel to some of the best hotels in Australia, unless you have an Australian or New Zealand passport you'll need an Australian Travel Visa. The most popular of these is the ETA Visa, because it can be easily and quickly applied for online.
