Top tips for finding the perfect Queensland hotel

  • If you’re looking for a cheap hotel in Queensland, you should consider visiting during the low season. You'll find cheaper accommodations in Queensland in May and April.
  • Hotel room prices vary depending on many factors but you’ll most likely find the best hotel deals in Queensland if you stay on a Saturday. The opposite is true for, Sunday, which is usually the most expensive day.
  • Book at least 76 days before your stay begins to get the best price for your Queensland accommodation.
  • The cheapest 3-star hotel room in Queensland found on KAYAK in the last 2 weeks was $21, while the most expensive was $351.
  • How long should you stay? KAYAK users usually book their accommodation in Queensland for 3 days.
  • If you have an early flight out of Cairns and would like to stay close to Cairns Airport (CNS), you don’t even have to leave the city. The airport is located just north of town, and one of the closest accommodation options is in Cairns North. Hotels like Holiday Inn Cairns Harbourside will place you close to the airport and the beach, with a free shuttle and wake-up service, to make sure you’re in time to check in.
  • For a luxurious stay in Queensland’s capital, consider one of the many 5-star hotels in the heart of the city. Emporium Hotel South Bank is great for those who’d like to explore Gallery of Modern Art and Queensland Museum or catch a show at Queensland Performing Arts Centre. If you need to be in the CBD, The Calile Hotel offers a sanctuary in Fortitude Valley, featuring a pool, gym, spa and wellness centre and more.
  • For an outback experience in Queensland, consider venturing out to Chillagoe. Directly west of Cairns, Chillagoe will give you that red-earth experience, and you can also explore natural wonders like Royal Arch Caves and Chillagoe - Mungana Caves National Park. Cosy accommodation options like Chillagoe Cabins make for a comfortable home base.

Further south, the Sunshine Coast offers more robust surf. Spots like Beach Breakers Resort and Horizons at Peregian will place you steps away from some of the region’s most popular beaches.

    While there are many golf courses spread all throughout the state, Queensland offers one of the most unique golfing experiences, in the Whitsunday Islands. Here, you play 18 holes on an island that’s completely dedicated to the golf course. There are no hotels on Dent Island, but you can stay at one of the resorts on nearby Hamilton Island. Spots like Beach Club or Palm Bungalows will place you within easy reach of the ferry terminal, and your ride over to Hamilton Island Golf Course should only take around 10min.

  • Which areas are good for a family trip to Queensland?

    Families generally head to the Gold Coast for the theme parks and the beaches. A stay at one of the hotels in Coomera, like Coomera Motor Inn, will place you in easy reach of Dreamworld, Warner Bros. Movie World and Wet'n'Wild. If you’d like to be closer to the beach, consider one of the Gold Coast’s many resorts, like Rhapsody Resort. Here, you can have a spacious family room with the beach at your doorstep and easy access to the theme parks via a bookable shuttle service. You’ll also be within walking distance of the Sling Shot ride, Ripley's Believe It or Not, King Tutts Putt Putt and other family-friendly Gold Coast attractions.
