Travel to Australia where the COMO in Perth comes second in a reader’s choice award.
Travel to Australia and experience the COMO Treasury hotel in Perth, the only Australian hotel to make the Conde Nast Traveler’s Readers’ Choice Awards top 50 list.
The hotel is part of a $580 million dollar redevelopment of the Cathedral Avenue precinct and occupies the top three floors of three historic buildings.
Wildflower, COMO’s top floor, glassed-in rooftop restaurant offers more than just an impressive experience, according to Conde Nast.
“When you taste the kangaroo, delicately smoked over jarrah ambers and served with grilled blueberry dressing, you’ll get what we mean.”
Travel to Australia: world’s top hotel
Website traveller.com.au’s reviewer Ute Junker named the COMO the best city hotel in Australia.
The service “hits the mark every time: friendly, informal, and utterly faultless,” she wrote, while the rooms have “a sense of tranquillity, provided by neutral tones and an uncluttered aesthetic that lets the elegant lines of the period architecture shine through”.

Australia is also home to some of the world’s favourite airports, according to professional pilots.
Hamilton Island, Whitsundays, Australia – “The approach to Hamilton takes you across beautiful island beaches and turquoise ocean vistas. Yachts are regularly in the vicinity and the airport is next to a marina. The surroundings, along with the demeanour of the staff, make you feel more relaxed as soon as you arrive. It makes you never want to leave!” – Captain Al Crawford, Qantas
Christchurch, New Zealand – “I love to fly into Christchurch as it has the most incredible landscape: it’s the ultimate scenic flight. Alps covered in snow, valleys filled with cerulean blue snow melt and patchwork fields covered in tiny white sheep-dots. After landing we’re always met with a friendly Kiwi smile and a subtle ribbing as to how we’re doing in the rugby or cricket.” – Captain Mark Goodwin, Qantas
