3 Australian Suburbs That You Need to Visit in 2016

Thinking about booking a holiday? Australia's cultural capitals are calling your name. If you want quick access to some of the best attractions and iconic buildings in the country, book accommodation in one of these of these centrally-located hotspots. Here are three Australian suburbs that you need to visit in 2016.

1. Double Bay, Sydney

With its picturesque harbourside views, Double Bay, a stunning suburb of Sydney, is full of boutique hotels and restaurants. Just 15 minutes from the centre of Sydney by ferry, the suburb provides respite from the hustle and bustle of inner-city life and quick access to the capital's cultural landmarks and business district. Nearby Redleaf Beach is a must-visit when you stay in the area. Murray Rose Pool, located at the western end of the beautiful beach, offers you the chance to swim in a safe harbourside tidal enclosure. 

2. Southbank, Melbourne

If you're searching for a vibrant night scene and some of the best accommodation in Melbourne, look no further than Southbank, an inner-city suburb that packs a punch. Here you'll find the Eureka Tower, a soaring skyscraper that makes a huge impression on Melbourne's skyline. Travel to the top for the highest public observation deck in the Southern Hemisphere; look across Australia's second city and down to the streets below. Southbank is home to some of Melbourne's best eateries which serve local dishes and international flavours. Pull up a chair and grab a bite to eat in a restaurant close to your hotel. Alternatively, take a stroll on Southbank promenade, where you'll find pavement chalk artists, food stalls and live musicians. 

3. Northbridge, Perth

With its palm tree-lined streets and assortment of shops and bars, Northbridge is an eclectic suburb that needs to be experienced. The city's bustling nightlife is centred around Lake Street and James Street, both of which can be reached by taxi or a short walk when you stay in a hotel in the suburb. If history and culture are more your thing, you'll find museums and galleries in Northbridge, including the Art Gallery of Western Australia and the Perth Institute For Contemporary Arts, which showcases local, national and international art. There are lots of food options too: Mediterranean and Asian restaurants in Northbridge attract hungry locals and tourists from across Western Australia's capital. Just one kilometre from central Perth, Northbridge is a centrally-located suburb with plenty to see.
