“The genie is out of the bottle” said CEO of AirBNB Brian Chesky. He went on to mention that the pandemic has forced us to see more of the world, not less of it. As we lust for adventure, we are uncovering small town communities and embracing the beauty of what’s in our own backyard. With national parks, hidden waterfalls and secluded beaches, we are falling in love with the outdoors, just a little closer to home. 

We thought it was the perfect time to shine the spotlight on these beautiful hotels that we are so lucky to have in Australia.
