Article heading image for The Most Affordable Aussie City To Holiday In Has Been Revealed! has today revealed how much the cost of accommodation will set travellers back in every Australian capital city… except Hobart. Hobart’s never on the list.

And look at that, Perth has taken out the top spot! 


“On, the current average accommodation rate for Perth is $158 – nearly a 10% decrease than the average rate in 2016, which sat at $173**,” revealed Wotif Managing Director, Daniel Finch.

"When we compare this to the average accommodation rate for our other capital cities, Perth comes out as Australia’s best value capital city in 2017** – nabbing the title from Adelaide and Darwin, which were 2016’s overall most affordable capital cities. With such affordability, there’s never been a better time for travel to Perth."


Unsurprisingly, the harbour city of Sydney is the most expensive city to visit. Check out the list below:

1. Sydney - $228

2. Melbourne - $188

3. Canberra - $184

4. Brisbane - $167

5. Darwin - $166

6. Adelaide - $162

7. Perth - $158
