Hotels and Accommodation in Sydney Australia.
Sydney covers a huge area, and it is spread around the shores of Sydney Harbour, making the location of your hotel critical in terms of how you are going to get around the city. If your visit to Sydney is the first time, and you only have 3 or 4 days, we suggest that your hotel or accommodation be within walking distance of the Historic Rocks Precinct, the Sydney Opera House, or Circular Quay. It is from Circular Quay that ferries to most parts of the city that can be accessed by water leave, and hotels and accommodation near to the Sydney Opera House place you in the best position to enjoy all that Sydney has to offer.
Hotels and Accommodation in Byron Bay Australia.
Byron Bay is nestled on the northern coast of New South Wales, and is actually best accessed from Brisbane if you are driving from a major airport. It can also be reached by VirginAustralia and JetStar (the Qantas domestic discount airline) by flying into Ballina Regional Airport. Hotels and accommodation in Byron Bay are an eclectic mix of everything from the ordinary to the extremely sophisticated. A little like the population mix in Byron Bay, actually. For a look at an unusual Australian coastal town, one that will show you the real Aussies at play, travel to Byron Bay is definitely worth it.
Hotels and Accommodation Canberra Australia.
Canberra is a Federal Capital City in the style of Washington DC in that its purpose is to provide a home for Federal Government, and little else. Hotels and Accommodaiton in Canberra are centralised around the Downtown area and the Australian Federal Parliament area, as well as areas overlooking Lake Burley Griffin, named after the American architect who designed the layout of Canberra City.
Cairns, Port Douglas and Barrier Reef Hotels and Accommodation Australia.
While the Australian Great Barrer Reef stretches some 1,800 Kms (1,200 miles) from north to south, it is best accessed from one of the major airports of the Australian Leisure Travel Destination covering Cairns, Port Douglas and Hamilton Island in the Whitsundays. To visit the Great Barrier Reef itself, it is necessary to stay on one of the Barrier Reef Islands offering hotels and accommodation, or to take a day trip or liveabord diving and snorkeling tour. Cairns, Palm Cove and Port Douglas all offer a wide range of hotels and accommodation. It is well worth checking out the Northern Beaches area north of Cairns and South of Port Douglas in precincts like Palm Cove for the best of waterfront hotels and accommodation.
Melbourne, Great Ocean Road and Yarra Valley Hotels and Accommodation Australia.
While Sydney has the glitz and glamour, the Sydney Opera House and the Sydney Harbour Bridge, Melbourne is a quietly classy city offering a real contrast in the Australian lifestyle. Melbourne is the base from which to discover the Phillip Island Penguins, the Great Ocean Road or the cool temperate vineyards and wooded hills of the Dandenong Ranges and the Yarra Valley. Hotels and accommodation is spread out over the entire Australian Leisure Travel Destination that includes Victoria and southern New South Wales, offering the opportunity to get off the beaten track and find unusual country towns that are quintessentially Australian.
Uluru Ayers Rock, Alice Springs and Kings Canyon Hotels and Accommodation Australia.
Uluru stands sentinal over the red desert of an Australian Leisure Travel Destination that covers more area than that of Western Europe. Stretching a thousand Kms in every direction from Uluru Ayers Rock, the Red Centre of Australia is a harsh and daunting environment. Only by traveling here can one actually experience the solitude and grandeur of what is not just a desert, but a rainfall deprived area that is totally unique. Hotels and accommodation are found in the major population areas of Kings Canyon and Alice Springs, and very sparsely elsewhere. Be prepared to be amazed at the distances.
Adelaide, Barossa Wine Region and Kangaroo Island Hotels and Accommodation Australia.
A short plane ride from Adelaide and the Australian Mainland, Kangaroo Island is an excellent place to get up close and personal with Australian Wildlife in the wild. While in Adelaide, day trips out to the Adelaide Hills and Hahndorf round out an experience that ranges from the superb wine areas of the Barossa Valley and McLaren Vale and the Southern Vales wine regions. The best (our opinion) hotels and accommodation in Adelaide are located along North Terrace in the downtown area, or on the beach at Glenelg, a short tram ride from Adelaide City.
Brisbane, Surfers Paradise, Gold Coast and Sunshine Coast Hotels and Accommodation Australia.
Brisbane is one of the fastest growing cities in Australia, a result of a mild climate, lots of room for expansion, and excellent scenic surrounds. Surfers Paradise and the Gold Coast has long been a destination for Australian retirees, and more lately for visitors to Australia wanting a mix of nightlife, great restaurants, fabulous beaches, family style entertainment and theme parks. Bounded to the west by Lamington National Park and the wooded hills of the Australian Great Dividing Range, to the east by the miles of fabulous beaches that give the Surfers Paradise part of the area its name and to the Glasshouse Mountains to the north of the city, this is an area of amazing natural diversity. Hotels and accommodation in Surfers Paradise and Brisbane cover a wide range of styles and values, from budget hotels and accommodation to the full 5 star casinos and hotels of the Gold Coast.
Darwin, Kakadu National Park, Litchfield and the Tiwi Islands Hotels and Accommodation Australia.
Stretching right across the top of Australia, the Australian Leisure Travel Destination centered on Darwin as its main entry point was the setting for the movie "Australia", starring Nicole Kidman and Hugh Jackman. Set in the Second World War period, it throws into sharp contrast the fact that this is the part of Australia that is nearest to the rest of the world, in particular Southeast Asia. It is a land of wide horizons, spectacular escarpments, prolific birdlife and Australian wildlife seen in the wild. It takes time to get to Darwin, Litchfield National Park and Kakadu National Park, but if you can allow the time, it will offer a different perspective on the Australian Leisure Travel Experience. It is always wise to book your hotels and accommodation in the Darwin,Kakadu National Park and Litchfield Leisure Travel Destination in advance.
Tasmania Hotels and Accommodation Hobart, Launceston, Cradle Mountain, Freycinet and Port Arthur Tasmania, Australia.
Tasmania, Australia's Island State, is actually a lot larger than it looks on a map of the whole world. Tucked away "down under Downunder" it is actually nearly 65,000 Sq Kms (25,000 Sq Miles) in area and can take about 7 hours to drive from the far northwest to the far southeast. The main city, Hobart, is a waterfront town in the southeast corner, and is close to the cool temperate rainforest for which Tasmania is famous. The other major population centres are Launceston, Devonport and Burnie. The major tourist icons are Strahan and the West Coast Wilderness Railway, the Gordon River Wilderness Cruise, Port Arthur Convict Historic Site, Freycinet National Park and Wineglass Bay, and Cradle Mountain. Cradle Mountain, at the northern end of the Cradle Mountain Lake St Clair National Park, is the departure point for the famous Cradle Huts Wilderness Walk. It takes a little extra effort to get to Tasmania (it is a one hour flight from Melbourne), but the Island justifies its place as separate Australian Leisure Travel Destination in its own right because of its diversity and historical interest. Make sure to compare prices and book your Tasmania hotels and accommodation before heading south to Tasmania.
Broome, Ningaloo Reef and Monkey Mia - Western Australia Hotels and Accommodation.
While the East Coast of Australia has the major cities of Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane and Cairns, as well as the Great Barrier Reef bordering the Pacific Ocean, the thousands af Kilometres of sparsely populated Indian Ocean Coastline running down the length of the State of Western Australia provide some of the most interesting outdoor experiences in the Country. This is an area covered by two different Australian Leisure Travel Destinations, and runs from the tropical waters of Broome in the north, through the amazing blues and whites of water and sand while you dive with the Whale Sharks at Ningaloo Reef, to feeding the wild dolphins at Monkey Mia, and on to the rolling hills and spectacular coastlines of the Margaret River area south of Perth. Since you will be traveling such great distances, and getting so far out to the end of the line, it would be wise to compsare prices and book your hotels and accommodation in Perth, Broome, Monkey Mia and Ningaloo Reef in advance.
