As a general rule our low or off-season period is the dates in between the Queensland school holidays, apart from long weekends and festivals. Some property owners may vary this with other rates such as a Summer or Winter rate period.
All our properties will show what prices are for which season.
Short stays are available during the off-season, however in the majority of properties bookings of less than 4 nights cannot normally be made more than one month ahead. (Should you notice a gap in bookings we may be able to assist though so please call or email us). Certain properties may have other stipulations on their number of minimum nights. We cannot take bookings more than 12 months ahead under the terms of the Management Agreements with our owners.

School holiday bookings,
Apart from Easter, are generally Saturday to Saturday for holiday units, and Friday to Friday for holiday homes (or Monday to Monday for most bookings in the 2022/23 summer school holidays). This is also varied in the April & September school holidays.
Easter bookings 2023 are part of April school holidays & are between 31/03/23 & 17/04/23 (Most properties 4 night minimum until 30 days out); Easter is 6/4/23 to 11/4/23, with higher rates than April weekly rates.
In school holiday periods, shorter bookings will generally be made available 30 days prior to the holiday period, subject to availability, and some properties & owners may vary this guideline. Long weekends and Festivals such as the Ryno Insurance Downunder Beachfest and the Caloundra Music Festival will normally have a 3 or 4 nights minimum (and will be at a slightly higher rate than off-peak).
