Popular holiday rentals in Australia



Rent a house or apartment for your holiday in Australia

Have some fun in the Kingdom Down Under!

Australia: where timeless landscapes, golden coastlines and underwater kingdoms meet electric cityscapes. This glorious nation is a land of extremes, so it is unsurprising that so many people choose to make the most of the Southern Hemisphere sun when winter is at its coldest at home. From the cool, coffee-infused artistic streets of Melbourne, to the scarlet shades of the monumental Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park, Australia boasts the very best city, beach and adventure holidays. Make the most of this diverse country, and reserve a holiday rental which is as individual as the land it stands in, meaning you can live like a local, and enjoy the authentic Australian experience from the moment you first wake up. 

When to visit?

Because of its place in the Southern Hemisphere, this land down under enjoys its seasons in reverse to the UK, meaning you can escape to the summer sun when it is snowing at home. Though the attractions become busier in summer, the best time to visit is when the climate reaches its peak between December and February, meaning you really can celebrate Christmas on the beach! If you would prefer to visit the cities and beaches when they are likely to be less populated, then choose to visit around October, November or March time, when the climate is still moderate enough to enjoy the beauty of this impressive country.

How to get there?

Due to Australia's vast distance from the UK, the most common way of reaching the country is to fly, most commonly from London. With a minimum flight time of 17 hours on the non-stop Qantas service from London Heathrow to Perth, the journey time between the two countries is anything but quick! Most passengers will choose to stop en route at airports in Singapore, the Philippines, Hong Kong and Doha, which brings the duration of travel between 22-35 hours. If you are not a fan of flying and would prefer to break up the travel time by staying on land for a few days, then look for accommodation in Singapore where you can relax before landing after a shorter flight, then feel rejuvenated to get out there and explore everything Australia has to offer. Alternatively, renting a |holiday apartment in [Hong Kong| is great way to split up your journey, as the western side of Australia is only 7 hours from this cultural hub.

Where to stay in Australia? 

Sydney 

Home to the Sydney Opera House, arguably the most recognisable landmark in Australia, Sydney is the epitome of all that makes the country what it is. A global powerhouse city, brimming with impressive structures, monuments, a world-famous harbour and the surfer's paradise of Bondi Beach, Sydney has something for all ages and interests. If you are looking for a holiday apartment to rent in Sydney, look no further than a rental which is near Darling Harbour, just beyond the Central Business District, where the streets are alive around the clock, so you are guaranteed a good time. 

Perth

 Secure a holiday home rental in Perth, where the Swan River intertwines with the sandy South West Coast, and experience why this city is the capital of Western Australia. With cost-effective rentals scattered across this Aussie powerhouse, you can relax and spend your accomodation savings, making the most of everything this capital offers. Spend your days at the Perth Mint, where you can discover the 'city's rich gold history, then get your daily dose of culture in the Western Australian Museum, before laying out under the stars at the Perth Observatory. 

Cairns

Famed for its proximity to the incredible Great Barrier Reef, Cairns is a gateway to one of most impressive natural wonders in the world, so choose a holiday villa here if you want to enjoy convenient travel to this underwater utopia. There is even more to this tropical city than the famous Barrier Reef, however, as this area is a great place to choose a holiday apartment rental if you crave inland adventure. With its Skyrail Rainforest Cableway, and the verdant beauty of the Rainforestation Nature Park, a holiday home in Cairns is the adventure-filled family escape you have been dreaming of. 

Melbourne 

The south-south-eastern city of Melbourne is quickly becoming the most desirable destinations in Australia, and that is no surprise when you consider that it is a vibrant Victorian hive of street art, boutiques, fresh food markets and a globally-famous coffee scene. Choose a self-catered apartment rental in Melbourne and make the most of the city's exquisitely hip drinking and dining opportunities, after wandering through the Royal Botanic Gardens and delve into the heart of Australian city life when you explore the culturally blessed Federation Square. 

Gold Coast 

Anywhere named the ''Gold Coast'' must surely be one of the most spectacular coasts on the planet, and thankfully, this seaside city on the east coast of Australia is lives up to its glorious title. With a striking cityscape at the fringe of Coral Sea, Dreamworld amusement park and Cavill Avenue, where surfers meet shoppers, this sun-kissed coastline is a paradise for all who choose to visit. Rent a holiday villa by the sea, and wake up in a room with a view of the water, before heading out onto these wonderful waves before the crowd arrives. 

Brisbane

Step back in time to the 1920s while enjoying the comforts of the modern-day in the beautiful capital of Queensland, where early twentieth-century architecture is intertwined with contemporary art galleries and subtropical gardens. Secure your own haven in this historic city by choosing one of the many apartments to rent in Brisbane, then discover the best of Queensland at your own leisure. 

Australian history and culture 

The only thing more diverse than the food in Australia is the culture, with the first inhabitants of this land being Aboriginal Australians and Torres Strait Islanders tens of thousands of years ago. No visit to Oz is complete without delving into the history of these natives, whether you admire some Aboriginal art in the Artlandish Aboriginal Art Gallery in Kununurra, or you take an official ''Aboriginal Experience'' tour, you will soon see that these historical roots are still part of Australian society today. 

Australian food and drink

Think of Australian food, and you will probably picture BBQs on the beach, or Vegemite, Marmite's controversial Australian relation. As Australia is such a large country, however, you are guaranteed to come across a vast range of flavourful home cooked dishes and exotic street food. If you are a meat-lover, be sure to try the 'country's national dish, roast lamb, from a gastro-pub or traditional restaurant when you are passing through one of the city centres. To finish, stop by a local bakery and pick up a slice of Lamington cake, which is a little slice of paradise for any chocolate and coconut lover.
