Agnes Water named top holiday hot spot for Christmas


Locals might have 'Christmas in July' on the mind, with accomodation bookings for December already starting to fill up.

New data from Stayz shows Agnes Water is the fourth most popular spot for where Queenslanders are booking this Christmas, followed by the Fraser Coast in fifth place.

Stayz travel expert Simone Scoppa says travellers are staying much closer to home.

"The interesting thing about Agnes Water, we've got about 134 homes there, it's those four-bedroom homes that are most booked and most popular," Ms Scoppa says.

"We've seen a 25 per cent increase in occupancy for the month of December year on year."

Ms Scoppa says locals should get in early to nab their ideal holiday stay.

"They've probably learnt from last Christmas, leaving it to the last minute you don't always get the choice that you want," Ms Scoppa says.

"So the message is very clear in 2021 that to nab that best holiday home for Christmas, you might need to start looking now in July."
