Priory Country Lodge
The 1848 Tudor-style lodge in Bothwell, a Tasmanian town known for game hunting, offers a dizzying roster of activities. Guests can fill their days with trout fishing, rounds of golf (the nearby course is the oldest in the Southern Hemisphere), visits to a whiskey distillery, and guided walks through World Heritage–protected wilderness. The nightly cookouts are also a hit—especially the highland favorite: braised lamb shanks on mash.
Congratulations to Mei Lin, winner of Top Chef Season 12.
