    Australia Hotel & Resort 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.


    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.


    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.


    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.


    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.

    "location is excellent close to CBD and darling ."
    staff were good . room service was disappointing , the content was small and pathetic looking plus there was a room service charge . there were no perks for the expensive room . Not even limited free WIFI . Fridge temperature was really low I thought the fridge wasn't working . Comparing to NZ hotels , I found this hotel not as good. It was a good convenient stay for location .

    Oaks on Collins

    480 Collins Street, Melbourne - Map
    "Good place made better if in room with a view"
    Stayed in room with view over Collins st. Outside view important helps gauge weather and what to wear. Room very spacious with kitchenette and dining table. Ensuite basin far too small however - water splashes out each time brush teeth or face. rest of bathroom fine. Mattress super comfortable. Artwork in room bland and un imaginative. Room needs a coffee capsule machine.. Sachet instant stuff was disgusting. Likewise coffee at restaurant breakfast needs cofee capsule machine or barista style quality. Fantastic location block away from trams and straight to southern cross station. Reception area lacks pizzaz and concierge location looks disjointed. Overall great value for discounted rate on offer but would expect more value of paid normal room rate. Would stay again at discount rate only.

    "Centrally located. Close to everything "
    We were in the middle of everything we wanted to do. Very happy with the accomodation. We did not use the restaurant or the bar but were satisfied with all else. The only thing that was unusual was that our room was serviced around 4 or 5 pm.

    "nice hotel close to cavil ave..."
    Overall, a great place to stay, however, we booked for 3 adults and the room was only set up for 2 people! We had to ask for extra towels, crockery etc each night after the room was cleaned! The spa was too cold and the place was overrun by noisy uni students cos we didn't know the uni games were on! No-one told us...

    "Amazing view but a few concerns"
    The view was fantastic, the room was nice, clean and comfortable; however, the queue to check in and check out was the largest I have ever seen at a hotel. We waited more than 20 minutes on both occasions. Also parking is not included and is quite expensive at $15 per day, even though it was extremely difficult to find a park in the garage. Also, the buffet restaurant downstairs for dinner was very average.
