Whether you’re after an adventure in the Outback, a laid-back tropical paradise, a cultural experience infused with good food and wine, or a party-till-dawn city break, Australia most happily obliges.
When it comes to hotels in Australia, the options are as varied as the country itself, and fill the whole spectrum from cheap and cheerful to ultra-luxurious – you’ll discover hotels, B&Bs, hostels, resorts, apartments and even quirky crocodile-shaped abodes on your travels in Australia.
Sleep in self-catering apartments in the heart of city centres, hunker down in legendary hostels in locations as varied as downtown Sydney to Monkey Mia, snuggle up in B&Bs and guesthouses along Victoria’s Great Ocean Road or discover your inner farmer on a delightfully authentic rural farm stay.
Looking for the best hotels in Australia? You’re in luck, as there are plenty of amazing places to stay, though they are not always where you might expect to find them.
The cities of Sydney, Melbourne, Perth, Adelaide and Cairns are home to impeccable international five-star hotels, of course, but there’s also a wealth of independent luxury hotels in Australia, where quirky designs and playful décor reflect the ambience of the area, whether it is the retro chic Gold Coast or cultured Canberra.
Travellers have long made a beeline for the magnificent Whitsunday Islands, where azure waters lap against the private cabanas of some of the most acclaimed of Australia’s all-inclusive resorts (such as Hamilton Island or the aptly-named Daydream Island).
Environmental sensitivity is a refreshingly common theme here, too. From Byron Bay and the remote Lord Howe Island to national parks such as Daintree, you’ll discover swanky resort bungalows entwined within nature and oozing with eco activities.
From nabbing the best views to sweet talking your way into an upgrade, improve your chances of getting the best hotel room – without paying through the nose – with these expert tips.Read moreabout Ask the experts: How to bag the best hotel rooms
