Cheap Hotels Australia

"Find Cheap Hotels Australia!"

Below are my tips for finding cheap hotels Australia.

There are heaps of ideas here to try and find the best prices. Sadly Australia isn't cheap when it comes to hotels but knowing where to look is half the battle. You'll also see some good alternatives to hotels on this page too if you are on a tight budget.

I have also included my accommodation recommendations on each of my destination pages under the title of "Where to stay". This is where I personally recommend hotels and other options. So you'll find some of these on this page and then on my individual destination pages. Check out the following pages and choose your destination for more information but I recommend reading this page in its entirety before you do.

  • Before you book, you can contact the hotel directly to see if they can beat the price. Some have a "best price guarantee" which means they will give you a further 10% off the price quoted.

    Cheap hotels Australia can soon add up. The cheapest way to get around Australia is camping.

    Australia really caters well for the camper with hundreds of national parks and camping grounds available. There is something in nearly every town or city. In peak season you will need to book in advance.

    Best places are within the National Parks themselves or try the Big 4 camp grounds as they have a large selection right across the country.

    For a full list of my recommendations go to Camping Australia.

    Personally, I am not a camper. I worry too much about the insects and spiders!

    Motels are an alternative to cheap hotels Austalia and are generally dotted on major highways across Australia. They are pretty much like what you see in the US.

    These are good if you are only planning on a one night stop over as they are very basic, sometimes still living in the 1970's with interesting wallpaper and decor! The usual price is about £100.


    The locals swear by these as they really are cheap and value for money. The decor is also much better than your average motel.

    Camping and Caravan sites generally have cabins available for about $150 for 2 bedrooms. This will be big enough for a family of 4. The "Big 4" campsites are a good place to look as well as Holiday Haven Tourist Parks along the East coast.

    A couple of really good ones include:-

  • Huskisson Beach Tourist Resort, Jervis Bay, 3 hours from Sydney (see

    best australian beaches for more details on Jervis Bay

  • Cairns Coconut Holiday Resort
  • Kakadu Lodge and Caravan Park
  • Discovery Holiday Park, Cradle Mountain
  • For a full list of my camping/cabins suggestions go to Camping Australia or how about a spot of luxury camping - check out my Glamping page.
