10 Of The Quirkiest Aussie Properties You Can Rent On Airbnb

There is something supremely satisfying, and even a little brag-worthy about finding the quirkiest accomodation you again. That goes about tenfold with travel being what it is now and your hotel being the main event of a trip away.

Well, we’ve got you and your ‘Gram covered. Airbnb is pretty well known for its odder properties, so we scoured the listings for the weirdest (but in a cool way) houses for rent around the country.

Obviously check the current travel advice of your own state before you go, be responsible, etc etc.
