Not just for backpackers, renting a campervan is ideal if you don’t own a car (or a car capable of camping). There’s the popular options like Wicked Campers that even have a pop up “penthouse” bed on top, or for a few more dollars you can go for something with a bit more space and a few more mod cons. If you’re feeling particularly adventurous, a 4WD camper can be a great way to get into remote spots – plus you’ve got your bed with you ready to go! 

Eco lodges

Fancy a green getaway? Ecotourism is booming in Australia and while most accommodation options are taking steps to reduce their impact, a niche for environmentally friendly options has resulted in the introduction of eco lodges.  Found in remote areas, they tend to be in relatively pristine natural environments like jungles, beaches and mountains.  Expect renewable energy sources, non-toxic cleaning supplies, water conservation methods and plenty of recycling.

The quirky

Thought Airbnb was just for houses? Think again. Tap into your inner-child with a tree-house stay or be one with the water in a house-boat. There’s cabins around the country, old train carriages and even a plane.  Our office favourite was the igloo by the sea in Trinity Beach.  Options are endless and located worldwide; just make sure you get in early as the quirky options tend to book out quickly. 


Love the idea of camping but miss the comforts of a real bed? Glamping or “glamour camping” could be for you. This luxury option is available all around Australia with most companies supplying a spacious tent with proper bed (often completed with a slathering of fairy lights). Think luxe linens, mains power, fresh water, magazines, bean bags and more!

Serviced apartments 

But if you’re just looking for a home away from home when you travel then a serviced apartment could be for you. All the comforts of home but with the luxuries of a hotel! Serviced apartments usually come with separate bathroom, living, dining and sleeping areas – plus a fully equipped kitchen and laundry. These features, unique to apartment hotels, allow you to cook your own meals, do your own laundry, and relax with plenty of space.
