Why Accommodation In Australia Along The Coast Is The Best Choice

By Budget Motels on 08 March 2018

If you’re planning your next getaway – and let’s face it, who isn’t thinking about their next one the moment they get home from holidays – the first step is to decide where you want to go. Here in Australia, our stunning coastline is a hugely popular destination amongst international visitors and locals alike – no matter the time of year, there’s nothing quite like heading to the beach.

But why are the best places to choose accommodation in Australia along the coast? There are actually a few reasons for this:

  • Best beaches in the world
    It should come as no surprise that Australia is home to some of the best beaches in the world. From Whitehaven Beach in the Whitsundays and Cable Beach in Broome to Wineglass Bay in Tasmania’s Freycinet National Park and Main Beach in Byron Bay, we have some of the longest stretches of sand-covered coastline in the world.
     
  • Beaches in almost every state and territory
    The only place where you won’t find any beaches in Australia is the inland state of Canberra – every other state and territory is bordered by some stunning coastline (whilst Tasmania is completely surrounded by it), which ensures that you won’t have to travel too far to feel the sand between your toes. Choose a local or an interstate beach getaway.
     
  • Don’t forget to pack the surfboard
    Here you will also find some of the finest surfing in the world, so don’t forget to pack your surfboard. If you’re looking for massive waves, your best bet is to book accommodation in Australia along the New South Wales coast. Other good surf beaches can be found in South Australia, Victoria, Queensland, Tasmania and Western Australia.
     
  • Up close and personal with the sea life
    The oceans around Australia are home to a number of majestic sea creatures, from dolphins to sea lions, and it’s possible for you to get up close and personal with some of them. In fact, South Australia is one of the best places in the world to go cage diving with Great White Sharks – just remember that this activity is not for the faint hearted!
     
  • Fantastic weather year round
    Our more northern states and territories, like Queensland and Western Australia, are known to experience pleasant weather all year round – in some cases, you can even hit the water in the middle of winter! Choose accommodation in Australia carefully if travelling during the winter, particularly if you’re planning to swim or surf.
     
  • Road trip along the golden sand
    There are actually a number of beaches scattered around the country where you’re allowed to drive right along the waters edge if you want to (although you will need a 4WD to handle the sand). This can make a great road trip experience, particularly in places like Fraser Island where you can also pitch a tent on the sand for the night and enjoy a barbeque.
     

Whether you’re planning a weekend or a weeklong getaway, choosing somewhere along the coast could be just the relaxing break you’ve been searching for. The Australian coastline is truly spectacular at all times of year, which often puts coastal accommodation in Australia in hot demand – be sure to book your motel early to avoid missing out on the dates you want.
