Sick And Tired Of Doing Holiday Apartments
Townsville The Old Way? Read This
  • Holiday apartments are a popular choice for many
    travelers offering many of the comforts of home,
    along with the added luxuries of swimming pools,
    gyms, spas, saunas, BBQ areas and often games
    rooms and outdoor playgrounds to keep the
    children amused.
  • Holiday apartments are particularly fashionable
    for those travelling as a family while the idea
    of lying idly by the pool all day reading a book
    and sipping a cocktail is appealing to most
    parents, it's an idea not all that exciting to
    children. Holiday apartments offer the facilities
    to allow mum and dad to relax, while having
    enough activities to entertain the children. They
    are generally located in areas that have many
    family orientated activities, for example,
    Queenslands gold coast, which is home to
    Australia's best theme, Holiday Apartments
    Townsville and water parks and offers a variety
    of free child activities such as the beach and
    the excitement of Caval Avenue.
  • Another reason holiday apartments are popular is
    that unlike hotel rooms, which are often quite
    expensive and generally consist of one (1) room
    with a bed and a small bathroom, apartments come
    in varying sizes consisting of anywhere between
    1, 2 and 3 bedrooms. Three (3) bedroom apartments
    are very popular for those with children it
    gives you enough space to spread out and for
    those travelling in a group it offers the
    advantages of being able to reduce the cost of
    your holiday by splitting the cost while still
    allowing you to have your own personal space.
  • While there are many holiday apartments available
    in and around Australia's coastal regions, they
    are not strictly limited to the suburbs. In fact
    Australia offers a large variety of holiday
    rental apartments to suit holidaymakers from all
    walks of life.
  • Australia is a diverse nation with many
    attractions for the inner foodie in all of us.
    Throughout Australia you will find many flavors
    worth tasting, from the prominent wineries in The
    Hunter Valley, Barossa Valley and Margret River
    to the emerging wine regions of Orange and Mugee.
  • Many companies such as Best Western offer
    fantastic deals on holiday apartments which are
    affordable and hassle free with packages
    available that offer not only offer cheap
    apartment-style accommodation, but also includes

  • Australia is renowned for its amazing outback,
    bustling cities, luscious rainforests and amazing
    coast lines and, while each of these areas offers
    a new and unique experience for travelers, they
    all have in common the abundance of apartments to
    rent, which means, when you are holidaying in
    these areas, you can focus on appreciating the
    magnificent delights on offer while knowing you
    have a place to relax and call home at the end of
    the day.
  • Holiday apartments do not have the rating system
    typical to that of hotels and motels, however,
    that is not to say there is not a variety of
    different rental apartments available to suit
    travelers on all budgets. Within the one resort
    you will find many different types of apartments,
    ranging from cheaper one (1) bedroom apartments -
    usually on the ground floor with no view - to
    higher-end apartments within the same resort,
    which may have more three (3) or four (4)
    bedrooms, are a lot more spacious and offer a
    balcony and a view either of the ocean or pool.
  • If you are flexible with your dates, or feeling
    impulsive and like splurging on a
    spur-of-the-moment weekend getaway, there are a
    number of options for booking last-minute holiday
    apartments. Best Western's website offers a
    last-minute booking option, meaning you may get a
    nicer apartment at a cheaper rate.

Accommodation Townsville An Incredibly Easy
Method That Works For All
  • It is becoming increasingly popular for people
    consider an adventure in Australia by travelling
    in a campervan. It is not only Australians
    getting out and enjoying this experience, but
    people from all over the world. Whether you hire
    a campervan in Australia, or have purchased your
    own vehicles you can join the many Gray Nomads
    that are exploring Australia at their own pace
    and in their own way.
  • If you are not familiar with the term Gray
    Nomads, they are generally people 45 years plus,
    who have all the time in the world to travel
    around the great continent of Australia.
    Sometimes these people are looking for seasonal
    work to supplement their retirement savings -
    others are simply enjoying life. Generally the
    Gray Nomads own their own rig, whether a
    campervan or a caravan, with many selling up
    their family property to enjoy this lifestyle for
    years at a time.
  • There are plenty of people, though, who choose a
    campervan hire in Australia, rather than invest
    thousands of dollars in a vehicle. Campervan hire
    provides more flexibility to have the right type
    of campervan to match the destination. It's also
    a cost effective way for international visitors
    who enjoy the outdoors and camping to explore
    Australia, without the need to bring their
    personal gear. Campervan hire provides transport,
    accommodation and a kitchen for enjoying the
    local produce, which allow savings to go further.
  • Australia offers literally thousands of free or
    low cost camping options which are perfect for
    someone who's thinking about campervan hire.
    There are many publications and websites which
    provide more detail, however, it is fairly
    obvious around 4pm in the afternoon if you're
    away from the main cities. You'll see several
    campervans and motor homes stopped at beautiful
    locations getting ready for the mandatory 'happy
    hour'. This is a good opportunity to have a chat
    with fellow travelers about the best locations to
    travel in Australia, and where you may find the
    next stunning camping location.
  • A popular route to travel in a campervan is the
    East Coast of Australia. There are many stunning
    beaches that have nearby campgrounds. If you are
    lucky, there may even be the odd deserted beach
    for an early morning walk before you head out on
    the day's adventure. If you are considering the
    campervan hire, and have at least a month or two
    available, there are plenty of options. One that
    many fellow campervanners have travelled is the
    coastal road from Adelaide to Cairns.
  • Adelaide is well known for its wine regions and
    gourmet food, with many towns on the coastal road
    to Sydney, via Melbourne providing fresh seafood.
    The Great Ocean Road is also one of the most
    famous roads in Australia, and really is quite
    spectacular as you meander along the coastal
    roads in your campervan. Visiting Wilsons
    Promontory and Phillip Island are a must. It is
    possible to see the Little Penguins in the wild
    at Phillip Island as they ride the waves and
    waddle up the beach to their burrows.
  • You'll be amazed at the beautiful coastal towns
    all the way along the coast as you start heading
    north. The great thing by having a campervan is
    that there is no need to book accommodation or be
    concerned about where you will spend the
    evenings, as your bed and kitchen are with you
    all the time. Travelling in a campervan gives you
    greater flexibility to stop for the night, if one
    of these beautiful towns takes your fancy.
  • As you continue meandering north, you'll notice
    there are plenty of islands to explore off the
    coast from Brisbane to Cairns. One of the most
    popular is Fraser Island, which is the largest
    sand island in the world. It is easy to arrange a
    4WD day tour of the island's highlights, or even
    longer if you prefer. The Whitsunday's is best
    explored by boat, but don't underestimate the
    stunning views that you can get from the mainland
    overlooking all the islands, Accommodation
    Townsville and the brilliant blue water. The
    drive to Cairns does not disappoint as you travel
    the coast through pockets of tropical rainforest.
    Cairns is a worthy finale to the East Coast
    Adventure with the Great Barrier Reef beckoning.
  • For those that prefer company while they travel,
    or are unsure where to go, there are escorted
    campervan tours available in conjunction with
    campervan hire. This is a great way to go if you
    like a mix of adventure, the outdoors,
    sightseeing, socialising and relaxing. Perfect
    for those that only have three or four weeks
    holiday, with no need to spend hours researching
    the specific route to be travelled. Campervan
    tours are also popular for those that have never
    travelled in Australia or had a campervan holiday
    so may lack a little confidence. There is such
    vast distances between many well known tourist
    attractions in Australia. However many find it's
    the in "between" adventure that is the most
    memorable, and really makes the holiday. Escorted
    tours are excellent for those looking for a
    campervan holiday with a difference.
  • Those considering a campervan holiday in
    Australia vary from those that enjoy luxuries in
    life, to those that are on a more modest budget.
    There are many different types of campervan hire
    available to suit all tastes and budgets. Some of
    the available campervans to hire in Australia are
    more like apartment living, so definitely not
    roughing it while enjoying the outdoors.

This Study Will Perfect Your Townsville
Accommodation Read Or Miss Out
  • Cheap holidays in Australia are easy to find
    whether you are travelling through major cities
    like Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide, Perth or
    Cairns, or heading into more remote areas like

The Ugly Truth About Self Contained Holiday
Apartments Townsville
  • The Gold Coast, situated in south east
    Queensland, is one of Australia's leading holiday
    playgrounds. With 70 kilometers of sun-drenched
    beaches, World Heritage listed rainforests, theme
    parks, shopping and nightlife - it is a world
    class, stylish holiday destination. In fact, the
    Gold Coast has been identified as one of the most
    desirable places in the world to live based on
    political, social, health, personal safety,
    economic and environmental factors.
  • The Gold Coast is located in the sub-tropical
    region of the Southern Hemisphere and enjoys the
    warmth, https//thegulls.com.au and sunshine the
    whole year round. Australian seasons are the
    opposite of those in the Northern Hemisphere -
    the average summer temperature is 25 degrees
    Celsius and in winter, it is around 15 degrees
    Celsius. You can expect over 300 days of sunshine
    each year, with the wet season being December to
    March, when the northwest monsoons move south
    from Asia bringing heavy rain.
  • Your flight will most probably land at Brisbane
    International Airport - which is a 45 minute
    drive north from the heart of the Gold Coast.
    Alternatively, if your Australian holiday began
    with saying Sydney or Melbourne, you can opt to
    fly into the Gold Coast Airport at Coolangatta
    which is approximately 35 minutes south of
    Surfers Paradise, considered by any as the
    epicenter of the Gold Coast. Both airports have
    tourist information booths and car rental firms
    represented in their terminals.
  • All foreigners - except New Zealanders - require
    visas for all visits to Australia. The citizens
    of some countries can obtain an Electronic Travel
    Authority (ETA), which is a tourist or business
    visa valid for up to three month stays. These
    ETAs are available online and through travel
    agents at the time of booking your flight to
    Australia. If you apply for your ETA through your
    agent, the fee for applying directly is usually
    waived.
  • Accommodation With every kind of accommodation
    from exclusive 5-star hotels to farm stays and
    from sunny beachside cabins to sun dappled bed
    and breakfast properties, you'll be spoilt for
    choice. A visit to https//thegulls.com.au and a
    click on 'accommodation' will show you a variety
    of hotel choices, including location and cost,
    that you can browse and compare. Most visitors
    place themselves at the hub of Surfer's Paradise,
    however if you prefer a quieter, less bustling
    location you could consider an apartment
    overlooking the waterways at Runaway Bay or a
    hinterland retreat in Mount Tamborine where
    rainbow Lorikeets will greet you each morning.
  • Driving Australia drives on the 'left'. Overseas
    visitors who are used to driving on the 'right'
    should exercise caution until they become
    accustomed to this - roundabouts can be
    especially tricky. Your travel agent will be able
    to advise whether your current driving license is
    valid in Australia. Please check this several
    weeks before departure so you have time to apply
    for an International Driving License if required.
    Australia has a well-maintained system of roads
    and highways where speeding, driving under the
    influence, driving while operating a mobile phone
    and not wearing a seatbelt is not tolerated. If
    needed, most car hire companies will provide you
    with children's car seats and these too are
    required by law.
  • Sightseeing and activities When you have settled
    into your Gold Coast accommodation, you will want
    to plan what to see and do. If you are travelling
    with children, theme parks are going to be high
    on your agenda. The Gold Coast boats, four major
    theme parks Dreamworld, Movie World, Sea World
    and Wet and Wild. Our family's favorite is
    Dreamworld because it has something for all ages
    (including a water park) and is home to the
    Australian version of the popular reality TV show
    Big Brother.
  • There are also a couple of wildlife parks on the
    Coast that run excellent educational talks at
    regular intervals throughout the day and are a
    great outing. At David Fleays Wildlife Park and
    the Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary, you can get
    close to snakes and Raptors, cuddle a koala and
    feed kangaroos. At both parks there are cafes,
    picnic and play areas where families can rest and
    play in the shade.
  • When visiting the Gold Coast you will also want
    to head to the beach, where you can catch a surf
    lifesaving carnival, joins a surfing class or
    simply swim and build sandcastles. Some of the
    more popular beaches are Surfers Paradise,
    Broadbeach, Burleigh Heads and Currumbin. There
    is also a very family friendly, sheltered beach
    at Paradise Point, which includes a beachfront
    park, BBQs, picnic tables, plenty of shade, play
    areas and some great takeaway outlets just a
    stone's throw away.
  • Unfortunately, one of the most common causes of
    tourist deaths in Australia is found on its
    glorious beaches. Each year quite a number of
    tourists (and sometimes locals too) drown on its
    shores. Australian beaches - particularly the
    long strips common on the Gold and Sunshine
    Coasts - have extremely strong rips and pulls
    that most people are unable to detect or handle.
    Never swim on beaches that are not patrolled by
    lifeguards. Look for the yellow and red surf life
    saving flag and swim between them to stay safe
    and in view of the local lifeguard.
