BLOW-OUT

The Weekend Australian - Travel - - Travel & Indulgence -

I’M nice and toasty on a heated, padded ta­ble in the Wald­heim Alpine Spa at Tas­ma­nia’s Cra­dle Moun­tain Lodge. It’s clear my ther­a­pist has em­braced the ‘‘it’s cold out­side so I’ll tuck you up tight’’ school of think­ing. Just be­fore my eye­lids give in to the in­evitable, I scan the deeply wooded moun­tain­side through the ex­pan­sive win­dow-walls, won­der­ing how many be­fore me have taken a quick peep at the peaks be­fore snooz­ing through their treat­ments. Mother na­ture can wait for an hour or two . . .I have a High­land Heal­ing mas­sage and fa­cial to in­dulge in. At $240 for sleep­ing so soundly, this has to be un­ri­valled value.
