We just came back from a trip to revisit the Great Barrier Reef. While the majesty of the Great Barrier Reef and the lush tropical rainforests are breathtaking in their own right, it was our stay at the inspirational Altitude ONE40 (featured in your issue 29) at Mission Beach that made the experience absolutely perfect.
Occupying a 17 acre expanse of rainforest covered hilltop that offers unparalleled 270 degree views, and complete with its own helipad, it is a retreat that is far beyond any ratings.
Although the whether was not perfect during our stay, but the warm and extraordinary services from host Shane Hunter made up for it all.
We have been traveling extensively in Australia and overseas and stayed at much more famous and expensive places, but none can match the romance and inspiration of Altitude ONE40.
