Dream Homes in Australia

We are cautiously optimistic to see Australia opening up travel restrictions. So many of our community who live around the world have not been able to get home to Australia, and Australian citizens and permanent residents now have the option to travel when they are ready.  

We wanted to celebrate some great new and returning home listings in this wonderful country! If you don’t see just what you’re looking for throughout Australia or the rest of the world, you can always search more of our listings, whether you are looking for a home rental or a home exchange.

If you have a home listing on SabbaticalHomes.com that is in Australia, please add a comment in our blog and let our community know all about it. Note: with travel still opening up differently throughout the globe, be sure to check travel guidelines in relation to COVID-19, variants and/or vaccinations before making housing arrangements.
