Most under rated spots in Australia

Australia is always a popular hotspot for holidaymakers and there are lots of great places to visit and explore from Broome to Sydney. Where visitors choose to visit will partly depend on what type of experiences they want to enjoy on their holiday, as the coastline in Australia is perfect for anyone who wants to spend time surfing or swimming while the big cities are good for people wanting to do some shopping or see the famous attractions such as the Opera House. While there are plenty of well-known places to stay in Australia, there are also lots of lesser-known parts of the country to visit and these under rated holiday hotspots are perfect for anyone who likes to holiday somewhere slightly off the regular tourist trail.


One thing that all holidaymakers will need to do is find accommodation to stay in and again, there are lots of different types of accommodation to book. From hotels to campervans, and self-catering homes to beachside cottages, good deals on accommodation in Broome and other parts of Australia are easy to find with a quick online search.


Broome is arguably Australia’s most under rated place to stay and as it isn’t as well-known as some of Australia’s other big towns and cities; it is an unspoilt coastal town with plenty of charm.

Below are a few of the things holidaymakers should look out for when booking their accommodation in this pretty area in Western Australia:

  • Great location in terms of being able to reach everywhere easily
  • Clean, comfortable and competitive prices
  • A swimming pool
  • A garden area
  • Family-friendly
  • A choice of rooms

Roebuck Bay and Cable Beach are popular attractions in the town and it is a good part of the country to visit for anyone with children. People can go shopping for rare pink diamonds, hire a dune buggy, ride into a blood-red sunset on a camel or go bird watching and Town Beach is home to 130 million-year-old dinosaur footprints that are fascinating to see in person.


Perfect for enjoying outdoor activities such as surfing, exploring one of the 29 parks or wandering around the zoo, Adelaide is a culturally rich city that is home to plenty of museums and galleries that often gets overlooked in favour of the more publicised cities in the country.

Here are a few more places in Australia that shouldn’t be missed:

  • Phillip Island
  • Tasmania
  • Cairns
  • King’s Canyon
  • Rainbow Beach
  • The Fleurieu Peninsula
  • Shaw Island
  • The Noosa Everglades

Kangaroo Island 

Accommodation like in Broome is great for families but so is a trip to Kangaroo Island, which is located in Southern Australia just a short ferry ride from Adelaide and it is a sanctuary for a wide variety of wildlife.

Here are a few of the most popular activities on offer:

  • Penguin and whale watching
  • Fishing
  • Bird watching
  • Sea lion spotting

Free-roaming kangaroos, wallabies and koalas are the main attractions here and it’s easy to keep the whole family entertained for days on end on the island.
