Brian Bay, Almond Land, Drunk Island and Cans are among the most popular holiday destinations for Aussie travellers, according to an accommodation website.'s chief operating officer Robbie Cooke said a new search tool was providing insight into the weird and wacky misspellings for some of Australia's most popular destinations. He said enough people were making the mistakes when searching for holiday destinations that the company had devised a top 10 list to get some laughs around the office.

The site also showed there were quite a few Aussie holiday-makers keen to take in the sites at the fictional Neighbours and Home & Away sets of Erinsborough and Summer Bay. (!!!)

There are many websites out there offering some fantastic holiday destinations. I personally have been looking at Olympic Holidays who like many other sites are offering some really good package deals at the moment.
