And for some inspiration to get you started, we have found five of the most beautiful, fun, quirky, and otherwise notable hotel options that you can stay in during your next trip!
Vibe Hotel Marysville
Located in the foothills of Victoria’s Great Dividing Range, Vibe Hotel in Marysville is perfectly located to explore the stunning Yarra Valley.
When you pick up a rental car in Melbourne, it’s roughly 1.5 hours to the famous Black Spur Drive, a spectacular road that takes you through the lush valley surroundings and the towering mountain ash trees.
Marysville is just on the other side of the Black Spur Drive, and is right next to Lake Mountain, which is a popular ski destination in winter, and a scenic outdoor playground in summer.
Of course, there are also TFE hotels in Melbourne if you’d prefer to stay in the city!
Adina Apartment Hotel Wollongong
Just a few minutes walk from the beach, your apartment here is perfectly located for a summer getaway whether you’re driving the Grand Pacific Drive or not. It’s also right in the heart of the CBD, so you’ll never be short of restaurants and shops to explore, either.
There are 17 beaches to choose from in Wollongong, and countless activities throughout the city, and a full apartment-style hotel makes it easy to create a real home base from which to discover the best of the ‘Gong.
Travelodge Hotel Hobart
You’ll find the Travelodge Hotel Hobart in the centre of the historic district of the city, where you’re within easy walking distance of all the city centre wining, dining, and shopping destinations.
As well as the city’s own attractions, it’s also the ideal place to begin a road trip. You can begin in Hobart to take the ultimate road trip around Tasmania, or opt for a foodie road trip and follow the Huon Trail, tasting every delicious morsel along the way.
The hotel itself is sleek and modern, with free WiFi, on-site parking, and other handy amenities that will help make your adventure as comfortable and enjoyable as possible. And don’t forget, you don’t have to search for Hobart accommodation specials for a good deal – just use your Thrifty code for an immediate discount!
Adina Apartment Hotel Adelaide Treasury
The Adina Apartment Hotel Adelaide Treasury is truly something special, and is certainly more than just somewhere to rest your head during your visit to the city. This apartment hotel is located in one of Adelaide’s oldest and most historically important buildings in South Australia – the old treasury.
In fact, it is even recognised by UNESCO. Despite its age, this beautiful historic building is budding with modern comforts indoors, with fully equipped kitchens, free WiFi, and other great amenities. Once you’re done exploring and admiring the building, it’s time to see Adelaide – which is right outside your window. Central city attractions such as Rundle Mall and the Adelaide Central Market are just minutes away on foot, as are countless restaurants, cafes, and bars.
Outside of the city, you can visit countless world-class wineries just north of the city in the Barossa Valley, or you can even opt for a longer drive and take a road trip from Adelaide to Melbourne – part of which is of course The Great Ocean Road, another of Australia’s best drives.
Rendezvous Hotel Sydney The Rocks
The Rocks is easily one of the most lively, picturesque areas in Sydney – and even in all of Australia. With views of the Harbour Bridge, the glimmering blue waterfront, and The Opera House, it’s the kind of place even locals never get tired of seeing, and is arguably the best area to stay in Sydney.
And you can stay right in the heart of it at the Rendezvous Hotel Sydney The Rocks.
This idyllic location is one of the best TFE Hotels in Sydney, and offers rooms with outdoor patios overlooking the harbour, as well as an outdoor pool and a relaxing spa. There is no doubt that a stay here is a stay to treat yourself.
Naturally, The Rocks is in the heart of the action, so you can step out the door to the city’s hottest bars, best restaurants, and most glamorous shopping destinations. Just be sure to make your hotel booking in Sydney as soon as you have your dates, as this location tends to book up quickly.
