I’m sure you’ve realised that I’m about to tell you, you can. Get amongst these actually stunning triumphs of Airbnb rentals around Australia for $100 or less a night.

Speaking of private cabins, how about this completely off-the-grid and eco-friendly one, over-looking rolling green hills and epic sunsets? Not to mention, your closest neighbour will be a world heritage-listed rainforest.

Heading to the Great Ocean Road? Make a stop in this wood and lead light Art Deco/Nouveau-inspired private bungalow. The whole place was hand-made by the hosts, and you can feel the love.

South Australia: Appleton House

Can’t decide between the bush, the city and sea? Have a view of it all with this adorable ivy-strewn stone cottage outside of Adelaide. Oh and there’s a fireplace, what more could you want?

Western Australia: Australian Shed House

Does it get more Aussie than a shed? Probably not, but this is no tin shed rusting in your backyard. It’s a modern, funky little home looking out onto natural bushland and surrounded by kangaroos.

Rent it for $99/night here.

Tasmania: Earth House

Prepare to be obsessed with this snowy getaway — at least, it is between May and September, the rest of the time it’s just a regular cute getaway. It’s nestled away in its own valley, but only a short way from Hobart and MONA.

Rent it for $73/night here.

Northern Territory: Alice Wondervan

Honestly, the name alone is enough to make this place a must-stay. Add to that the fact it’s a well-kitted out, very cute vintage 70s caravan in the heart of Alice Springs and that’s all we need to hear.

Rent it for $79/night here.
