Hidden on a hill in the lush hinterland lies a place that is part retreat, part European estate, part luxury lodge and part home away from home. With 10 exclusive suites and the private 3 bedroom French Cottage, this is Spicers Clovelly Estate, your intimately unique Sunshine Coast hideaway.
Spicers Clovelly Estate was recently voted the Best New Tourism Development at the 2010 Tourism Queensland Awards. It is also one of the Luxury Lodges of Australia and is in the same company as such other esteemed properties as Qualia, Southern Ocean Lodge, Emirates Wolgan Valley and Spicers Peak Lodge.
From the moment you drive through our gates, you know you’ve arrived somewhere truly special. The stately 22 acres of grounds filled with grand figs, shaded jacarandas and groves of magnolias and gardenias will soon make you forget that you are just 90 minutes from Brisbane, while the stunning French-provincial architecture of the main house will not just invite you in, but tempt you to stay forever. Here, you could be in the heart of Provence instead of 30 minutes from the beaches of Noosa. An intimately unique oasis in the hinterland? Oui.
