In the state of Victoria, just 325 miles (523 km) from Melbourne is the town of Mallacoota. With a population of just under 1,000 people, Mallacoota is one of the most isolated places in Victoria. Despite the town’s tiny population, the Easter and Christmas holidays often make the town’s population explode to at least 8,000 people visiting to hang out in the bush and wildlife, go hiking, boating, whale watching, and just enjoying the day by the beach. Settlers started arriving in the area in the 1830s and it was a popular commercial fishing hub as well as logging and farming. Those industries declined over the years and the spot became a popular tourist destination for people looking to get away for a while. Take a look at some of the best and highly recommended list of Airbnb vacation rentals in Mallacoota, Australia for a memorable trip ahead.
This lovely and spacious holiday home is perfect for bringing your family and friends along as it can sleep up to eight people. Located just a short walk to the beach, lake and shops, this home is also a very convenient place if you want to head out and explore Mallacoota. The secure backyard has tons of room for people who have boats or needing a place to park your car. With all that space, the home is a great place to bring kids and pets as well! There is an equipped kitchen, washer, dryer and a little fireplace for cuddling up to.
