Top tips for finding the perfect Australia hotel

  • Think about interspersing your trips to the most famous cities and landmarks with visits to less famous gems hidden away in the vastness of Australia.
  • Australia, beaches, and outdoor living are almost synonymous so let’s start with swimming and snorkelling. When it comes to year-round swimming, serviced lodges and rooms at the Bayview Coral Bay and glamping at the Sal Salis in Exmouth are bookable through KAYAK and perfectly located within walking distance of a beach, local bars, and cafés. Snorkellers should consider a day trip to the Nigaloo Reef at Turquoise Bay, the only place a living coral reef is accessible directly from the beach.
  • Here’s a tip for surfers, take a look at Noosa Shire just up the coast from Brisbane, surfers flock to Noosa’s mainly unspoilt beaches for some of the best surfing in Australia, including from beaches within the Noosa National Park. Check out Noosa hotels bookable through KAYAK, including Skipper’s Cove Waterfront Resort. However, if you are thinking of visiting in March, book your accommodation well in advance, as March is when the area fills up for the Noosa Festival of Surfing.
  • Don’t forget to include some of Australia’s many islands when planning your trip to Oz. Let’s start with the Whitsunday Islands and especially Whitehaven Beach, often voted the best beach in the world. Book accommodation on one of the other Whitsunday Islands – check out the Barefoot Lodge on nearby Hamilton Island if you are on a budget, or splash out on the deluxe Palm Bay Resort on Long Island. Both are bookable through KAYAK.
  • If you’re looking for a cheap hotel in Australia, you should consider visiting during the low season. You'll find cheaper accommodations in Australia in November and September.
  • Hotel room prices vary depending on many factors but you’ll most likely find the best hotel deals in Australia if you stay on a Tuesday. The opposite is true for, Friday, which is usually the most expensive day.
  • Book at least 20 days before your stay begins to get the best price for your Australia accommodation.
  • The cheapest 3-star hotel room in Australia found on KAYAK in the last 2 weeks was R1 041, while the most expensive was R3 396.
  • How long should you stay? KAYAK users usually book their accommodation in Australia for 9 days.

FAQs when booking a hotel in Australia

  • Apart from going to the beach, what do visitors to Australia get up to?

    Let’s start with wine tasting and fine dining  – get to know the Hunter Valley, home to some of Australia’s most well-established vineyards. Book your accommodation through KAYAK and you can choose anything from a tree-top cabin in the Barington Tops Wilderness to a five-star hotel such as the Tonic Hotel in Rothbury – KAYAK has nearly 1,000 accommodation suggestions for the Hunter Valley region so there is something for everyone. Many of the picturesque towns have their own food and wine festivals to check dates before booking.

  • Is Australia all about sport, beaches and being outdoors?

    No, not at all. Australia is also home to wonderful art, opera, fashion and street culture. Think about spending time in Sydney, possibly by booking a stay at the Shangri-La Sydney through KAYAK. It is just five minutes’ walk from the Museum of Modern Art and its rooms offer spectacular views out over the harbour. Melbourne is sometimes called the cultural capital of Australia, thanks to its distinctive architecture, many theatres and festivals, stunning art galleries and vibrant café culture. Fraser Place Hotel is right in the heart of the theatre district and within walking distance of the central station.

  • Is it possible to have a desert experience in Australia?

    Although visitors are not encouraged to drive off into the desert by themselves, there are many desert tours, usually in sturdy 4WD vehicles driven by experienced guides. Or for a real desert experience, how about booking a stay in quirky Coober Pedy through KAYAK? The famous Desert Cave Hotel with cool underground rooms and the quintessentially Ossie Mud Hut Motel are both bookable through KAYAK.
