If you're hanging out for that Europe trip, or a visit to America, you might still have to wait a little while for Australia's international borders to reopen, and travel to become normal again.
In the meantime though, there are plenty of ways to experience a taste of overseas, without having to leave the country.
Here, we've rounded up some epic local hotel stays that can have you feeling like you're in New York, Paris, Italy or even The Hamptons.

You’ll be greeted with a ‘bonjour!’ as you step into a world of relaxation, romance and waterfront sophistication.
By nightfall, savour the French-inspired menu at Atelier by Sofitel and you’ll be forgiven for thinking you’re in the heart of Paris.
