Australia’s vast and varied ecosystem is one of the world’s most breathtaking. Yet it’s also temperamental and volatile: some years bring droughts, while others bring record-breaking floods. Locals are acutely aware of climate change, and the organization Eco Lodges of Australia (ecolodgesaustralia.com.au) helps band together accommodation that adheres to high standards of ethical and sustainable lodging. As a bonus, they boast a wealth of creature comforts. Here, we pick five of the best.


+ NEW SOUTH WALES | TANDARA SYDNEY


Eco-lodges are usually synonymous with remote parts of Australia, but Tandara Sydney is a mere 10-kilometer train ride away from Sydney’s CBD, Harbour Bridge and Opera House. Not that you would know it: Lane Cover River Tourist Park, where Tandara is located, is so quiet and filled with sleepy, native animal life that it feels a world away. Staying in a luxury canvas tent, guests experience the latest in “glamping” (glamorous camping), with the fun of open-air sleeping enhanced by all the mod cons of a luxury stay: sleek bathrooms, a king-size bed, a floating wooden floor, a giant flat-screen TV and even Wi-Fi. Plassey Road, North Ryde/Macquarie Park, New South Wales, Australia; +61 2 9888 9133; lcrtp.com.au/tandara-sydney; doubles from A$390.
