Pick the city and the month you want to stay, and you'll see a graph showing the typical pricing based on how far ahead you book. While conventional wisdom holds that the very cheapest rooms are usually scored by booking well in advance, there are many exceptions. The cheapest month to stay in Sydney is July, and you don't have to book far in advance to get it.

These are the cheapest months to book hotels across Australia:

Location Cheapest month How far ahead
Wellington January 2-7 days
Auckland July 1 day
Christchurch October 61-90 days
Adelaide July 1 day
Hobart July 1 day
Canberra August 2-7 days
Queenstown May 1 day
Gold Coast March 1 day
Brisbane January 15-30 days
Melbourne April 91+ days
Darwin November 8-14 days
Perth January 31-60 days
