Holy guacamole! Avocado fans have a unique opportunity to stay inside Australia’s most-beloved brunch staple – an avocado-shaped condo.

If avocado has smashed its way into your heart, then get ready to guac and roll – for the first time ever, you can stay in one.

Digital travel, Booking.com, who offer unique places to stay and a range of must-do travel experiences and seamless transport options, has created the worlds first Avo-Condo – an avocado-shaped condo.

Located at Campbell’s Cove Lookout at Sydney’s Circular Quay for a limited time, the Avo-Condo is a custom-built, self-contained condo, which resembles half an avocado on the outside and is complete with avocado-themed furnishings on the inside – all with a world-class view.

For two nights, lucky travellers will have the chance to live the ultimate millennial’s dream and experience a once-in-a-lifetime sleepover overlooking the iconic Sydney Harbour Bridge and Sydney Opera House inside a giant avocado.

The Avo-Condo will be available exclusively on Booking.com for two nights only – July 31 (National Avocado Day) and August 1 – so ‘avo’ fans must be quick to avoid missing out. At 9:00am AEST on Monday July 29, consumers across the globe will be able to book one of the two nights available on a first-come, first-served basis.

“Inspired by the world’s obsession with all things avocado, the Avo-Condo is a fun, quintessentially Australian experience like no other. With more than 6 million holiday homes, apartments and other unique stays available on Booking.com, there’s something for everyone to discover,” said Luke Wilson, Area Manager at Booking.com Australia.
