Planning a group trip to Sydney? It’s an exciting prospect, but it comes with its fair share of challenges. One of the key aspects to consider is where you and your fellow travellers will stay. Sydney offers a wide range of group accommodation options, ranging from luxury hotels to cosy cabins.

Benefits of Group Accommodation

The most apparent benefit of group accommodation lies in cost effectiveness. When compared to individual hotel rooms or vacation rentals, group accommodations prove to be significantly more budget-friendly. This affordability becomes especially evident when a group splits the costs, resulting in substantial savings per person.

Moreover, group accommodation foster a sense of togetherness and shared experiences, making them ideal for families, friends or colleagues travelling together. Instead of being scattered across various rooms or locations, many people can comfortably stay under one roof, adding to the overall bonding and communal aspects of the trip. When planning a school camp, family reunion, wellness retreat or Christian trip, it’s a good idea to consider large group accommodation venues, for these reasons.

Amenities and Facilities

When it comes to booking group accommodation in Sydney, the available amenities and facilities can make a big difference in the overall experience.


Having a kitchen in group accommodations can be a real plus, especially for families or budget conscious travellers. It provides the freedom to prepare meals, which can save a significant amount of money during the trip. Families with kids might find it handy to cook meals that suit their preferences, while groups with diverse tastes can enjoy cooking together. If cooking isn’t really an option, consider asking the venue whether they provide catering services, as this can greatly reduce stress and save time. If any members of your group have dietary requirements, such as gluten or dairy intolerance, ensure you check with the venue if they can cater to those needs. Usually, group accommodation venues are quite flexible!


Communal Spaces

As previously mentioned, communal spaces are another important feature in group accommodations. These areas are designed for group gatherings, games, discussions or just hanging out. Whether it’s a spacious lounge, a comfy living room, cosy cafeteria or an outdoor courtyard, communal areas provide a dedicated space for groups to come together. They encourage interaction and bonding among group members, making it easier to connect with fellow travellers.


If your group is travelling by car or renting vehicles, it’s important to check the parking options at the chosen accommodation. Some Sydney group accommodations offer on-site parking, which can be incredibly convenient. However, it’s essential to inquire about any parking fees or restrictions, as they can vary depending on the accommodation.

Transportation Options for Groups Around Sydney

When on a group trip, it’s fun to travel places together, and transportation options in Sydney offer convenient access to the city’s attractions and suburbs.

The Sydney Trains network seamlessly connects major points of interest, providing an efficient way to get around. In addition to trains, buses extend the reach to areas not accessible by rail, and can generally seat over 30 people. For a unique and scenic experience, consider taking a ferry ride to destinations such as Manly or Taronga Zoo, where you can enjoy breathtaking views of Sydney Harbour while getting to your desired location.

Accessible Wheelchair-Friendly Group Accommodation Venues

When choosing where in Sydney your group will stay, think about accessibility and inclusivity. It’s not just about convenience; it’s about making sure that every member of your group, no matter their physical abilities or unique needs, can fully enjoy the trip.

Wheelchair accessibility is the most common way to make a place more accessible. When venues are wheelchair accessible, they help individuals with mobility challenges to be part of the activity, instead of suggesting they observe from a distance. Some accommodations offer specially designed rooms for guests with disabilities. These rooms have things like grab bars and wider doorways which make them comfortable and safe for those with mobility challenges.

Inclusivity means that everyone feels welcome. Long Point Conference Centre’s outdoors are entirely wheelchair accessible, meaning that no wheelchair user is excluded during their visit.

Seasonal Considerations – When is the Best Time to Book in Group Accommodation in Sydney?

Summer (December to February)
Summer in Sydney is perfect for beach enthusiasts, with warm weather and inviting shores. However, it’s the peak tourist season, meaning increased demand for a place to stay. To secure group accommodation, booking well in advance is advisable.

Autumn (March to May)
As Sydney transitions into autumn, the weather remains pleasant without the scorching heat of summer. This season sees fewer crowds, creating a more peaceful atmosphere for your group when going on day trips. At LPCC we have numerous large trees which showcase golden, amber and fiery red leaves during autumn, creating stunning visual displays and infusing surroundings with a serene and inviting ambiance.

Winter (June to August)
While it gets quite chilly, winter is an excellent time to explore indoor attractions and cultural sites. Beach activities may not be ideal, as the water is icy and the wind calls for extra layers. To enjoy the outdoors even while it’s cold, ask your chosen group accommodation venue if they have fireplaces or outdoor firepits available for use.

Spring (September to November)
Spring provides comfortable weather for group adventures and a chance to witness Sydney’s gardens in full bloom. While tourist numbers start to rise again, it’s not as crowded as the peak summer months, making it a delightful time to visit. Spring is the ideal time for yoga retreats as the air is fresh and it’s not too hot.
