Accommodation in Australia


Students will find that there is a wide array of options for accommodation in Australia. Whether you prefer the luxury of a major hotel chain or the cost savings of an economic hostel, there are options available throughout the country that will perfectly suit your needs. Once you have determined your travel budget, the level of comfort and services you prefer and your destination, finding the right type of lodgings is simple and convenient.



Hostels are an ideal option for most students. This affordable choice for accommodation in Australia allows you to travel solo or with friends while staying within even a very tight travel budget. There are hostels located throughout Australia, including some that cater to families. Be aware that some hostels have age limits and, if you plan to travel frequently, consider joining Hostelling International, which is the overall membership organizations for multiple Youth Hostel Associations and includes over 4,000 hostels around the world. Membership provides great discounts that make this option even more cost-effective.


Self-Catering Accommodation

When traveling solo or as a couple, self-catering accommodations might not be a good match for a student budget; however, if you are traveling with your family or with a group of friends, this can be a cost-effective choice that offers more privacy and comfort than other options. Self-catering houses and apartments come equipped with kitchen facilities and many have on-site laundry facilities as well. This allows you to save money by preparing meals, rather than dining out multiple times each day, and is ideal for longer stays away from home.


Fully-Catered Accommodation

Fully-catered apartments and vacation homes, also referred to as serviced apartments and homes, provide the same privacy and convenience of self-catering accommodations with the added benefit of receiving the same services you would receive in a hotel. These fully furnished lodgings have kitchens or kitchenettes, lounge areas and one or more bedrooms. Students can expect to pay a little more than they would for a hotel room in most cases.


Homestays and Farmstays

Some students opt for homestays throughout their studies in Australia; however, even those simply looking for accommodations for a short trip can benefit from this cost-effective option. Staying with an Australian family at their home or on their farm provides a different type of travel experience than that offered by conventional accommodation options, including living like a local during your travels and more fully immersing yourself in the culture. Homestays generally include at least some meals and can often be arranged through your school.


Hotels and Motels

Hotels and motels are popular options for those seeking accommodation in Australia. If you are the type of traveler who likes to know what you can expect in terms of accommodations and services, and who does not mind spending a bit more to ensure your comfort during your stay, then this may be the right option for you. Hotels and motels will cost more than hostels and homestays, but they also offer greater privacy and standardized services. If you plan to travel to one of Australia’s more popular tourist destinations, be sure to reserve a room well in advance to ensure that you have a place to stay upon arrival.


Bed and Breakfasts

If you are looking for cozy, homey Australia accommodation, you may want to consider a bed and breakfast. This option is perfect for a romantic weekend getaway, or simply if you prefer enhanced comfort and the convenience of daily breakfast service. Travelers can expect to pay considerably more when staying in a bed and breakfast when compared to other options for accommodation in Australia; however, they can also expect greater comfort and luxury.



Camping if the most cost-effective way to travel through Australia and is perfect for those who appreciate sleeping under the stars and getting back to nature. A camping trip is a great way to get out of the city for a few days and recharge your batteries between tests and term papers. Of course, camping does not offer the luxuries of a hotel – or even a hostel – but it does incorporate a completely different experience into your travels. Students who do not own camping gear, or who could not bring it with them from home, can rent camping gear in many areas of Australia or can look online for inexpensive, used gear.


Choosing the right Australia accommodation for your travel needs largely depends on your budget and the level of comfort you prefer. If your travel dates or destination are flexible, you can find great last minute deals on hotel rooms and self-catering accommodations. Whether you choose to stay in a campground or a luxury resort, the most important thing to keep in mind is that taking the opportunity to travel while studying in Australia is an integral part of fully taking advantage of the educational opportunities available in this diverse country.
