    Australia Hotel Travel Guide

    Australia, also known by a variety of amusing sobriquets such as Down Under, is an extremely popular destination for tourists. This is somewhat ironic as the country is also one of the most remote in the world.

    In many other ways, Australia is a land of contrasts. The continent holds both vast areas of natural beauty and large modern cities such as Sydney. Aboriginal tribes, such as the Maori, live side-by-side with the descendants of the British that colonized the island.

    The Great Barrier Reef

    The Great Barrier Reef is one of the most famous barrier reefs in the world. This reef is known for its beautiful sea life and vibrant coral. The Great Barrier Reef is large enough to spend several days exploring. Most divers leave from Cairns, but if you leave from the lesser-known Port Douglas, you can find dive spots that are less crowded.

    Uluru

    Also known as Ayer's Rock, Uluru is one of the oldest rocks in the world, and it is also one of Australia's most iconic attractions. The best time to view Uluru is during sunrise or sunset as the sky looks as though the sun exploded into a burst of breathtaking shades of red and orange. The aborigines of this area consider the rock to be sacred, but they do allow visitors to scale the rock.

    Beaches

    Australia has over 50,000 kilometers of coastline. The east coast tends to be busier than the western coast, but both coasts are gorgeous. And with so much coastline, it's easy to find a spot to relax by yourself.

    Surfing

    While Australia didn't invent surfing, the sport is deeply ingrained in Australian culture. The east coast is considered by many to be one of the best surf experiences in the country. Beginners and professional surfers alike may find that Noosa beach is a great place to surf together.

    Wine Country

    Although France may be more well known for its wine, Australia has its own wine regions, and it produces fine wines. One such region is Margaret River near Perth. A trip to the vineyards is usually a simple day trip from nearby major cities.

    Sydney

    Another iconic site in Australia is the Sydney Opera House in Sydney Harbor. This large city is filled with great sites such as the Chinese Garden. There are also some excellent parks and surf spots in Sydney as well.

    Chose this place because of the central location and close proximity to World Square shops, Chinatown, Queen Victoria building and Town Hall station. A short 2 station train ride to Circular Quay makes access to the harbour, opera house, bridge and ferries very simple.

    Great entrance and pleasant friendly welcome by reception staff. My cookie was a great touch! Loved the bathroom - the styling was gorgeous. Quiet rooms and fantastic 'CareLine' service. Perfect location to be in the heart of the action in Melbourne CBD. Check out time of 12 noon was perfect to finish my sporting event, head back to the room and freshen up before checking out.

    "Attention to detail in cleanliness lacking."
    Overall the Hotel stay was ok, bed was comfortable and view was great from the 11th floor. Staff were attentive and helpful. Some parts of the facility were lacking in maintenance and upgrades to more modern styling are recommended. Attention to detail in cleanliness was lacking, it was noticed on arrival that long hair was stuck to tiles in the bathroom, and some kind of stains around the toilet floor tiles was a concern. When opening the curtains, they were dusty and smelt like they have never been washed?
