Are you bored of the same old ordinary type of hotel? Why not stay in one of these quirky accommodations?
When you have flown out to Australia before, you have likely stayed in a conventional hotel in an ordinary building. These hotels can be nice, but there comes a point when they all start to look the same.
If you are tired of ordinary hotels, why not stay in a strange and unique accommodation that will make your trip more memorable? Australia has many out-of-the-ordinary hotels which have been built in trees, underground, in old prisons and more. A holiday in one of these quirky accommodations means that your hotel will be just as much of an adventure as your journey itself!
The Old Jail Hostel, Mount Gambier
Most people try their best not to spend the night in jail, but in Australia you might find yourself paying for the privilege! At this quirky hotel you will have the experience of being locked up in a prison cell for the night without having any charges on your permanent record. The budget hostel has been converted from an old prison and still has plenty of its original (creepy) charm.
Desert Cave Hotel, Coober Pedy
Deep in the outback of Australia you will find a hotel that is actually dug into the ground! It advertises itself as the only four star underground hotel in the world. Although staying in an underground hotel might sound claustrophobic, the rooms are very quiet, cool, airy and spacious due to their high ceilings. The hotel also has excellent dining and convention facilities.
Canopy Tree Houses, Cairns Highlands
From deep underground to the top of a tree, the next strange accommodation in Australia will leave you feeling very in touch with nature. The accommodations are set within 100 acres of ancient rainforests in the beautiful Cairns Highlands. The six tree houses are surprisingly luxurious and each one has its own bedrooms, kitchen, spa bath, balcony and barbeque. The houses are eco-friendly in their design and blend in perfectly with their rainforest surroundings.
Pendragon Hall, Hobart, Tasmania
On the island of Tasmania you will find Pendragon Hall, which is an 1852 Gothic church which has been converted into self-catering accommodation. There is a studio apartment with a kitchenette, bathroom, bedroom and lounge area. Aside from the addition of a few modern conveniences, the building has been largely unchanged from its original historical architecture, which gives the visitor the feeling of having stepped back in time.
These are just a few of the most interesting and quirky hotels in Australia. They will offer you a comfortable night’s sleep, as well as a unique experience and a story you will never forget!
