Never has there been a better opportunity to truly appreciate the beauty of what Australia has to offer. Recent events (just a small worldwide pandemic) have been the catalyst for exploring our gorgeous local areas and taking the time to book those staycations that have often been put off in favour of a bigger trip.
Treat yourself! We all know the experience of staying in a hotel is a nice treat – you don’t have to make your bed or clean the bathroom, you’re footsteps from everything a big city has to offer, and you can come home whatever time you want! Make it a girl’s night in, or out, and enjoy all the perks your city has to offer and stay right in the middle of all the action.
A lot of us are in and out of cities for work, but don’t often stop to experience or even consider our towns the way travellers do. Take the opportunity to be a tourist in your own town or your nearest capital city! Big cities offer great culture and entertainment, dining, bars, huge sporting events, and often some of the best nightlife. Three of Australia’s (and the world’s, come to mention it) favourite cities are Sydney, Brisbane, and Melbourne, so if you’re a road trip away from one of the best places in the world, why not plan a staycation to remind yourself why they’re so popular?
In Sydney, Park Regis City Centre is literally in the heart of the best shopping, dining, and entertainment that the city has to offer. With international icons the Sydney Harbour Bridge and Sydney Opera House walkable from your accommodation, meander your way to both Circular Quay and Darling Harbour to take in the sights, sounds, and delicious smells of the CBD and Chinatown. If being slightly out of the action is more your scene, Park Regis Concierge Sydney apartments in the prestigious suburb of Cremorne is just over the Harbour Bridge and moments to the tranquillity of Balmoral Beach and the delightful village atmosphere of Mosman, not to mention Taronga Zoo is also only moments away.
For those lucky enough to staycation in Melbourne, plan yourself a quick trip full of great food, coffee, rediscovering the city’s art (including in CBD laneways), and even how close the centre of town is to the amazing St Kilda beach. Park Regis Griffin Suites Melbourne, conveniently located between the CBD and St Kilda, makes the perfect base to easily explore all the city has to offer, and fall in love with Melbourne the way so many tourists do every year!
Or turn your tourist-in-your-own-town eyes to Brisbane, which has all the benefits of a big city with a chilled out summer vibe, all year round. After a day of shopping at the lovely Queen Street Mall, meander along the river on a balmy night, dine alfresco and soak up the laid-back atmosphere or book into one of the cultural highlights that the city is known for. The refurbished heritage listed wharf Howard Smith Wharves is a great option and you can take your pick of fine diners, breweries, and bars.
With spectacular views over the Brisbane River and across to South Bank, Park Regis North Quay Brisbane is a perfect place to get away, and it won’t break the bank. Enjoy the added space that an apartment offers, soak up the sun at the hotel pool, and enjoy the best of Brisbane on your doorstep.
