Accommodation in Australia

Australia – the land of “Down Under”- is more a continent than an island. In a country the size of the United States of America with just 1/15th of the population and a pleasant year-round climate promoting an outdoor lifestyle, it’s no wonder the Aussies are so laid back.

In the center you will find the dramatic Outback, the desert-like interior with its red sand, strange rock formations and endless bush plains is a must see on your trip to Australia. In the north, in Darwin you will find a unique area full of swamps, jungle and canyons. On the east coast, the soil is more fertile. Here you can discover a stunning 4,000 km long coastline, which has a width of 100 km in the north (in Queensland) to more than 500 km in the south (in New South Wales and Victoria). This coastline is is the most developed area of Australia, here you will find the vibrant cities of Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane.

On the west coast in the city of Perth, the most isolated urban city in the world. The island of Tasmania is located at the most southern point of Australia. Climate, people and nature deviate here from the rest of Australia. And then there’s the unique Great Barrier Reef – unique in its size and wealth of marine life.

Australia welcomes visitors to a land where there’s rugged outback, lush rainforests, exciting cities and endless golden beaches fringed by world class reefs.

Australia which is known for its down to earth and friendly hospiality has a wide range of accomodations. From motels, bed and breakfasts to mid range hotels to luxury lodges.
