We’ve put together a list of some of the nicest and some of the weirdest places to stay around Australia, all for under $150 per night. Each house, apartment or cottage listed comes with different amenities listed on the Airbnb website for these locations and all come with excellent recommendations from prior guests.
The Bamboo Bungalow- Suffolk Park, New South Wales
This little bungalow is located in South Suffolk Park of New South Wales and is only a four minute walk to the beach. The location isn’t even the best part though. No, it’s the fact that the bungalow’s structure is made out of Bamboo. It has the look of a Balinese or Hawaiian get away, but instead of costing hundreds if not thousands of dollars for a getaway, this one’s only $135 per night and is only a short flight away.
The Farmhouse at Wilmot- Wilmot, Tasmania
When wanting to get away, some people want a good old fashion rustic trip, so why not small rural town Wilmot in Tasmania? For only $110 per night, you and five other people can stay in an old farm styled house. Located a bit away from town, this farmhouse allows for activities such as bushwalking, trout fishing, admiring rare flora and bird watching.
Igloo by the sea- Trinity Beach, Queensland
At least once in their life, almost everyone in Australia has wondered what it would be like to sleep in an igloo for a night, but being from a warmer climate, freezing temperatures may not be very appealing. So, why not stay in an igloo right here in Queensland? These igloo shaped cottages are within walking distance of one of Cairns best beaches and are available for $95 per night and can sleep up to four people.
Train Carriage SwanValley near Airport- Hazelmere, Western Australia
A house made out of a 1980’s passanger railway carriage is something that everyone would love to stay in. The carriage, which has been completely restored allows for four people to stay for $85 per night. Not only is it located a short public transport trip away from Perth’s CBD, it’s also located near the Swan Valley wine region, meaning that vineyard tours are available, as well as numerous other activities.
The Block- Dundee Forest, Northern Territory
This bungalow is the definition of comfortable rustic. The building of the bungalow is designed to look like a treehouse, without actually being in a tree. The beds are out on an enclosed balcony, with a toilet located outside of the house. For $140 per night, the site has a spa bath, allows fishing and is located on 23 acres, so there’s plenty of room.
