Whether you choose to stay in one place or visit a number of areas, the choice of accommodation options in Australia is huge, from all-inclusive hotel resorts to budget motels, from houseboats to Outback retreats. Costs vary tremendously and depend largely on what kind of family holiday you have in mind, but in Sydney, mid-range rooms sleeping up to 3 can cost from as little as £50 per room per night.

If you're exploring large areas of Australia, consider hiring a motorhome (see 'When and How'), which will save you money on car-hire, eating out and accommodation.
