The recommended hotels on these pages are classified into three price categories. Prices are per room per night, regardless
of single or double occupancy.
Accommodation in Australia Australia offers a wide variety of accommodation. There are world-class city hotels like Sydney's Park Hyatt, and luxurious island resorts such as Queensland's Hayman Island. You can stay on working farms to experience country and Outback life, or book into a historic Tasmanian cottage for bed and breakfast. Cheaper options are motels and Aussie hotels - functional yet often atmospheric pubs.
Queensland's Island Resorts In addition to the Queensland accommodation detailed here, there are many island resorts close to, or even on, the Great Barrier Reef. From the sophisticated luxury of Lizard Island to the family-oriented resorts on islands like South Molle in the Whitsunday region, there is something for every taste and budget. You can also stay right on the reef - Heron and Lady Elliot islands are the best bets.
Serviced Apartments Serviced apartments are a very popular accommodation option. These self-catering units offer from one to three bedrooms, and generally have a separate lounge/kitchen area. Such apartments are usually much cheaper than hotels of a comparable standard, and are ideal for families, small groups or those who just want the freedom to cook `at home'.
Wilderness Accommodation Many of the continent's most scenic regions - national parks like Kakadu and the Flinders Ranges, the World Heritage sites of the Tasmanian wilderness and some of the Great Barrier Reef islands - have little in the way of hotel accommodation. You can, however, camp for a small fee in many of these parks and reserves, while others provide basic but cosy cabins and huts.
