QT Falls Creek — Falls Creek, Australia
The Great Dividing Range spans a massive 3,500km, from Northeastern Queensland through the spine of the vast Australian landmass, before fading into the Grampians in Western Victoria. The allure of the lucrative Victorian market - the state is home to the densest concentration of ski resorts in the country - has not escaped the attention of the QT Hotel group, which opened the re-badged QT Falls Creek this past June. While the exterior remains as striking as ever, the interiors have been updated by Sydney-based Nic Graham (W Hong Kong, QT Sydney), who revitalised the 63 apartments with light, contemporary furnishings, open-plan layouts and private terraces with hot tubs and sweeping views of the Kiewa Valley. The hotel’s in-house spa features five treatment rooms, a sauna, steam room and indoor plunge pool, plus an outdoor spa. A 1950s-inspired cocktail lounge and casual dining room round out the property’s relaxed, youthful appeal.
