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.
