My idea of a good time is getting lost in the woods all so I can spend a few days finding my way home, but I can't deny the allure of glamping – especially when it comes packaged up in the form of the Kings Canyon Wilderness Lodge, the Northern Territory's answer to rustic chic.
The luxury eco-cabins – fully heated and air conditioned – are wonderful, but there's little reason to tuck yourself away inside when you can sip Aussie wine by the fire, or enjoy a gourmet meal under starry skies (or in the lodge restaurant on chilly winter nights). The last thing I expected to tuck into in the Outback was a spicy prawn curry, but I shouldn't have been surprised – the Northern Territory has plenty of tricks up her sleeve.
