Sydney Hotels and Accommodation - Find the Right Hotel for You
Compare Prices on Sydney Accommodation
Consistently ranked as one of the most liveable cities in the world, Sydney is bounded on the East by the Pacific Ocean, and on the west by The Blue Mountains. Captain Cook explored the Sydney Coast, landing at Botany Bay (near the Sydney Airport) in 1770, but the first permanent settlement that grew into today's Sydney was established at The Rocks (near the Bridge and the Opera House) soon after the arrival of the First Fleet, carrying Settlers, Soldiers and Convicts, in 1788. In our opinion, your Sydney accommodation should be near Circular Quay (the square of water with all the ferries between the Sydney Harbour Bridge and the Sydney Opera House) and in the Central Business District bounded by Paddington, Darlinghurst, Haymarket and Piermont. Check our Interactive Map of Sydney for details and to get your bearings.

Hotels and Accommodation in the Blue Mountains
Amazing Discounts on Blue Mountains Accommodation
The Blue Mountains got their name from the faint blue haze that appears to cover the ranges, particularly on hot days. The haze is caused by oil from the Eucalypt Trees that are a major part of the vegetation evaporating into the atmosphere. As the Blue Mountains have become more settled over the last 200 years, the distinctive blue haze has lessened, but the declaration of a major part of the Blue Mountains as a World Heritage listed area in November 2000 preserves many areas in their natural state and provides great opportunities for walking, sightseeing and wildlife viewing. Your search for accommodation in the Blue Mountains area should be concentrated on the towns of Katoomba, Blackheath and Bilpin.

Hotels and Accommodation in the Hunter Valley Wine Region
Compare Prices on Popular Hunter Valley Accommodation
With a population of just under 750,000, the Hunter region of Australia stretches from about 120 Kms (75 miles) to 300Kms (185 miles) north of Sydney, and includes the coastal city of Newcastle, and perhaps the most Iconic of Australia's wine growing regions, the Hunter Valley. The first settlers quickly worked out that the humidity of the coastal Sydney area made grape growing a risky business, and that the frosts of the Blue Mountains and the inland west of Sydney were equally as destructive. The discovery of a valley just 200 Kms (160 miles) to the north of Sydney centered on the Hunter River that had an ideal climate for grape growing and wine production encouraged the first plantings in 1825, and such Australian wine legends as Leo Buring and Murray Tyrrell have created what is now arguably the best known of the Australian wine regions, The Hunter Valley. If you are self driving, The Hunter Valley has a wide range of accommodation to make for a lazy few days of it, and provides a chance to discover the true nature of rural Australia in a most agreeable setting.

Hotels and Accommodation in Canberra and the Australian Capital Territory
Compare Prices on the Best Hotels in Canberra
As a new century dawned in 1900, Melbourne and Sydney were fighting it out or the honour of being named the Capital City of Australia. To resolve the conflict, in 1908 it was decided that a hitherto undeveloped area around what is now the City of Canberra should become the Australian Capital Territory, with the National Capital situated there. Located some 280 Kms (170miles) to the southwest of Sydney, and 660 Kms (410 miles) to the north of Melbourne, the National Capital is now a monument to the Central Government of Australia and the location of the Federal Parliament and the headquarters of most Federal Australian Agencies. It is also the location of most overseas embassies. The Australian Capital Territory and Canberra has hot to warm summers and cool to cold winters. Summer temperatures range from averages of 28 Deg C. (82 Deg F.) as a high with lows in the 13 deg C. (55 deg F.) range, and Winters from 12 deg C. (54 deg F.) as a high to 1 deg C (33 deg F.) as a low. Rainfall is around 600 mm (22 inches) and is distributed with the heaviest rainfalls between May and June, with December to May being the drier months. It snows occasionally in Canberra, though it feels cold enough to do so on many winter days when the wind blows off the nearby Australian Alps.
