A few friends and I are traveling from the states and flying into Sydney. We have 5 days in Australia, and have decided we'd like to drive to Melbourne and back before we fly out. We were originally considering renting a campervan, but a search on this forum reveals that in at least a few threads, people are generally suggesting renting a car and then staying in cabins. We want to be able to enjoy the natural beauty of the area as well as explore a bit in both Sydney and Melbourne.
Is staying in cabins common in Australia, and are there cabins between Sydney and Melbourne? Where can I find more information on this?
