Boutique hotels offer their guests accommodation in unique surroundings. They are small, intimate establishments that provide a high level of personal service. Some will have a different theme in each individual room.
Bed and breakfasts give guests a more homely experience than many other accommodation types. Often accommodation is provided in a section of the owners' home, allowing guests both interaction with the hosts, and a degree of privacy.
Staying on an Australian farm gives guests the opportunity to experience a rural lifestyle, allowing them to either watch or participate in farm activities, while country hotels also give guests a taste of rural hospitality.
People on a budget, particularly singles, might find backpackers hostels a good option. They're a great place to meet others from different cultures and make new friends.
Motels and caravan parks are easily accessible options for people on driving holidays. Caravan parks provide sites for travellers with their own vans, as well as areas for campers, and accommodation in on-site vans and cabins. Inexpensive – sometimes free – camping is also available in numerous bush campgrounds.
Similar to caravan parks but with more facilities and lots of different activities to choose from, holiday parks can provide a family holiday that keeps the children occupied and gives parents a rest.
Finally, house swapping provides the most inexpensive form of accommodation, providing free lodging when two households swap homes for a pre-specified period of time.
