And so to Australia – specifically Queensland, where a farsighted tourism developer (Chris Morris, who already owns the sleek Orpheus Island in the Great Barrier Reef) has created a retreat on 28,000 hectares of bush on a working cattle station near the spectacular prehistoric rock formation known as Ngarrabullgan. Mt Mulligan Lodge (northernescape.com.au; from A$1,700 – about £915 – all inclusive) will accommodate no more than 16 guests at a time, who will arrive by helicopter from Cairns in half an hour and, when not submitting themselves to the talents of the lodge’s chefs, will be free to fish, muster the 1,400-odd Brahman cattle or rove the countryside in ATVs.
