Come staycay, vaycay and playcay with us
Stacked to be the year to staycay, playcay and vaycay in our cities, we at Ovolo haves een the challenges of the last year as opportunities to adapt and evolve, developing unique hotel experiences to drive the continued strength of domestic tourism in Australia.

With border restrictions continuing to take a toll on Australia’s tourism market, identifying our cities as gateways and transit hubs for traveler’s, Tourism Australia say it’s no surprise that they’ve been hit the hardest in terms of tourism spend, hotel occupancy and aviation capacity over the past year. Despite offering so many incredible, safe experiences and being more affordable than ever.
In a move to alleviate the toll of bearing the brunt of this pandemic despite our cities, we teamed up with Tourism Australia, collaborating with Australian power couple Zoe Foster Blake and Hamish Blake to showcase how to staycay, playcay and vaycay in our cities. Calling on Australians to support eachother in mateship by booking a city escape, which in turn will help to support the thousands of city-based hotels, restaurants, bars, cultural attractions and experiences that rely on tourism for their livelihoods.
