Cosmopolitan capital cities
Covering the furthest reaches of the country from the savannah to the shoreline, Australia's capital cities each embrace a unique identity and cater to a wide variety of travel tastes. Discover why Brisbane is giving Melbourne and Sydney a run for their money with luxury hotels, cafes on every corner and tonnes of quality shopping opportunities.
If you want all the benefits of the big city with a little laidback charm, book your Australia accommodation in amiable Adelaide, outdoorsy Perth, trendy Hobart or tropical Darwin. While it may sometimes take a backseat to the rest, the nation's capital Canberra has plenty of attractions and accommodation fit for a dignitary.
Relax at beachside resort towns
One of the most popular appeals of Australia for residents and tourists alike is the vast expansive of beautiful sandy coastline that traces the island nation. In Queensland, the gleaming Gold Coast and Sunshine Coast either side of Brisbane host hundreds of hotels right on the foreshore, while northern Port Douglas never fails to lure sun-chasers to the Tropical North.
From the famous northern beaches of Sydney to surf mecca Bondi on the other side of the city; the scenic Great Ocean Road winding its way along Victoria's southern coast to beautiful Broome further afield in Western Australia, Australian beach accommodation is found far and wide.
