Airbnb users have rated the South Burnett as one of Australia’s most hospitable regions, according to data supplied by the short-term homestay company.
The company, which advertises short-stay rentals online and via an app, says it recently updated its platform to include revamped ratings and reviews.
A spokesperson said airbnb properties in the South Burnett received a 94 per cent share of five-star reviews over the past year, making it one of the most hospitable areas in the country.
Other regions with the highest percentage of five-star reviews included:
- Huon Valley, Tasmania
- Latrobe, Tasmania
- Macedon Ranges, Victoria
- Central Coast, Tasmania
- Moorabool, Victoria
- Wangaratta, Victoria
- Alice Springs, Northern Territory
- Southern Downs, Queensland
- Upper Lachlan Shire, NSW
The ratings were based on listings with the most five-star reviews received between October 1, 2022, and September 30, 2023.
A quick look at the airbnb website shows there are almost 60 venues listed in the greater South Burnett region, ranging from renovated former churches to more formal farmstays.
