The Best Treehouse Accommodation in Australia

The best treehouse accommodation in Australia are a striking mix of luxury and childhood fantasy.

Canopy Treehouse

There’s something special about treehouses. For many of us, they were a childhood fantasy (or if you were lucky, a reality), a place we could go to escape our parents and play in peace. For others, the thought of sleeping high in the sky, surrounded by nature, is nothing short of divine. To help take your holiday to another level – literally – there are plenty of treehouse-style accommodation in Australia for you to check out. Some are rustic retreats and others are decked out with creative comforts, but they all tick the novelty box. 

For your very own home among the gum trees, book a stay at these scenic spots.
