Firstly though, you’ll need somewhere to stay to soak up all that sand, surf and smiles, so book one of these top Airbnb Plus vacation rentals today.

6. Melbourne Le’City apartment (from USD 198)

Overlooking Victoria Harbour, this modern apartment has three bedrooms and can sleep up to eight guests in total. The first two bedrooms feature queen-sized beds whilst the third room features a twin. Each room is elegantly decorated with neutral undertones and subtle color-pops.

The property is just a short walk to attractions such as the Etihad Stadium, the Docklands, and Crown Entertainment Precinct.

7. Comfortable studio apartment near Parliament House (from USD 96)

This bright apartment for two guests is one of the best locations in terms of access to amenities, historical sites, and entertainment. It is another open-plan design, this time featuring a large black leather sofa, a small pine-wood dining area, and a compact full kitchen. We like that although the property is open-plan, the double-sized bedroom does feel slightly separate because it is up a few short steps on a different level. The studio is also in a secure location near the Parliament House.

8. Hip apartment designed by local creatives (from USD 123)

The hosts have worked hard to create an iconic home away from home for their guests. There is a collection of unique artwork throughout the property and we love the blue painted wooden-paneled flooring. The kitchen is well equipped and there is a full dining room. The outside of the property is graffitied with various designs and artworks, and you can use the onsite bikes free of charge. Stay at this vacation rental if you wish to experience the local life!
