As part owner of Gwinganna, Hugh Jackman used this 500-acre Gold Coast retreat to train for Wolverine. It’s no wonder. The ultimate man spa, Gwinganna offers fitness classes like stick fighting and boxing, an indoor cycling studio, miles of bushwalks, and is 15 minutes from the waves at Burleigh Beach, where the ASP World Surfing Circuit kicks off every February. There are also kinder, gentler activities, including yoga, meditation, and a full menu of spa offerings like “Rockupuncture,” an 80-minute hot rocks massage that realigns the body’s energy through its meridians and helps cure insomnia. The best part: Gwinganna has an on-site garden and orchard, which insures good eating.

Seven-night detox packages from $2,904.
