    Where to Stay in Australia?

    With a land mass of about 7.7 million square kilometres, it’s no surprise that Australia, the world’s only country-continent, offers a diverse landscape and a boatload of activities. Cairns in the northeast is the gateway to the Great Barrier Reef, while Sydney to the south is a bevy of culture and beachfront real estate. Inland, the Northern Territory invites visitors from around the world to make the hike around to Uluru (Ayers Rock) and watch its colours change with the sun’s movement. Whether you’re an adventure traveller or seeking R&R, you’ll find a healthy dose of things to do without leaving the southern hemi.

    When to Visit

    With so much coastline at your fingertips, you might assume summertime is the best season for travelling to and around Australia. However, between November and March you are apt to encounter a lot of humidity and precipitation on your travels. Meanwhile, September and October are lovely times for a journey. The best resorts in Australia don’t book up as quickly in the spring, and temperatures are comfortable—you can even spend time on a southern beach.

    What to See and Do

    What can you do in Australia? A better question might be, “What can’t you do?” Relax in Western Australia’s Swann Valley, climb the Harbour Bridge in Sydney on the east coast, or hike Kakadu National Park in the Northern Territory. No matter which region you explore, there are opportunities for art, culture, cuisine, and more. Even better, car rentals in Australia allow you to see beyond the beaten path.

    The Great Barrier Reef

    The Great Barrier Reef is one of the most famous barrier reefs in the world. This reef is known for its beautiful sea life and vibrant coral. The Great Barrier Reef is large enough to spend several days exploring. Most divers leave from Cairns, but if you leave from the lesser-known Port Douglas, you can find dive spots that are less crowded.

    Uluru

    Also known as Ayer's Rock, Uluru is one of the oldest rocks in the world, and it is also one of Australia's most iconic attractions. The best time to view Uluru is during sunrise or sunset as the sky looks as though the sun exploded into a burst of breathtaking shades of red and orange. The aborigines of this area consider the rock to be sacred, but they do allow visitors to scale the rock.

    Beaches

    Australia has over 50,000 kilometers of coastline. The east coast tends to be busier than the western coast, but both coasts are gorgeous. And with so much coastline, it's easy to find a spot to relax by yourself.

    Surfing

    While Australia didn't invent surfing, the sport is deeply ingrained in Australian culture. The east coast is considered by many to be one of the best surf experiences in the country. Beginners and professional surfers alike may find that Noosa beach is a great place to surf together.

    Wine Country

    Although France may be more well known for its wine, Australia has its own wine regions, and it produces fine wines. One such region is Margaret River near Perth. A trip to the vineyards is usually a simple day trip from nearby major cities.

    Sydney

    Another iconic site in Australia is the Sydney Opera House in Sydney Harbor. This large city is filled with great sites such as the Chinese Garden. There are also some excellent parks and surf spots in Sydney as well.

    "Well worth the stay"
    We were in Sydney for 5 days and stayed at Four points. We did feel in today's technology world internet access should be mandatory in rooms instead of having to pay for access. It's free in the lobby (no where to sit) Also, be aware the hotel is going through major renovation and this will impact your stay if you like the building to be quiet. Otherwise a fantastic hotel and the staff are more than friendly and ready to help

    "Nice hotel close to the beach"
    Hotel was very close to the beach and great location with shops directly below! Check in was easy with great service, except the man told us he would give us a free parking card but later on ended up having that taken out of our bond. Room was great very high up, only thing the bathroom is a bit old and showers weren't the best. Good value for money and would stay here again next time we come.

    "Families"
    Location is very handy. However room was outdated, alhough suited our needs for 2 nights stay. It really needed a good scrub & appliances checked to make sure they are in good working order..eg: oven. I would recommend to families as the room catered for this. But I would not say it was 4 star hotel if u are going by room condition. Rest of hotel & facilities were great
