After a long day of traveling, there’s nothing more enjoyable than dropping your bags on the floor and sinking into a relaxing bath – bonus points if it comes with a view!

So whether you prefer soaking in the tub, or soaking in the view, you’re sure to be satisfied with this list of the best tubs Australia has to offer. 

Gilberton Outback Retreat, QLD 

We’re starting out strong with a luxurious tub perched on a veranda overlooking the Gilbert River in far north Queensland. Offering plush robes, waffle slippers, bespoke bathroom products, and a bottle of champagne on arrival, they really have this whole bathing thing down to a fine art at Gilberton.

Thalia Haven, TAS

Next up, a truly iconic tub to enjoy after a day of exploring Tasmania’s East Coast. Soak in the view and the sounds of the waves crashing below, then keep the warmth coming in the nearby wood-fired sauna.

Southern Ocean Lodge, SA

The Osprey Pavilion at Southern Ocean Lodge is home to this handmade granite bathtub that sits on a secluded cliff overlooking the Southern Ocean and Kangaroo Island wilderness. If you can avoid dozing off, you may even spot a Kangaroo hopping by!

Pier One, NSW

Proving that the city can also bring the goods in the battle of the baths is Sydney’s Pier One. The view from your bath in the Admiral Suite couldn’t get closer to the harbour unless it was on boat!
