Sydney for Christmas (and even more so for New Years) has been near impossible for a month or two already (seems to be booked full two weeks earlier in the year every year; at the current rate you'll have to book over a year ahead by 2016). Other than that I think it should be mostly fine, although for the big cities I'd still make certain to book at least two weeks ahead, just so you don't have to end up in the crappiest hostel around.

It probably depends on where you are - I know a lot of people who have struggled to find accommodation in Sydney over Christmas (and New Year). In other areas of Australia the demand may not be as high but i would still recommend booking in advance.

Cool, i dont mind being outside the city really, it would just be like travelling in to London from where i live, apart from the transport system might be alot better :) thanks for the info though!
