Best vacuum cleaners in Australia: from cordless Dyson to robot Roomba


You know what sucks? A good vacuum. And we’re here to find the perfect one for your everyday needs. We know that finding the best vacuum cleaner can, well, suck – there are just so many models to choose from, and who really wants to spend their time finding an appliance that means more work around the house?

The thing is, vacuum cleaners have come a long way since the days where you had to haul out that massive corded behemoth from your hall closet and plug it into a new socket every few minutes. Compared to some of the slick vacuums on the market today, that’s practically medieval. 

Today’s vacuums are much slimmer, and while most are still controlled by hand there’s a growing number that have robotic brains and can clean up all on their own. Many of today’s vacuums also run on battery power, so you won’t have to worry about dragging cords all around your house. 

While it’s still a ‘chore’ in the traditional sense, vacuum cleaning can now be done in far less time and with far greater ease thanks to cordless vacuums. But if even that sounds too hard, you’ll likely be chuffed to learn that most robot vacuums can be set on a schedule, so they’ll even clean your house while you’re out living it up (or working).

It’s true that high-end vacuums can be quite costly, but they can also be the sort of investment where the benefits become almost immediately clear. As soon as you’ve experienced the added ease and efficiency first-hand, it’s hard to go back to anything else. 

Whether you’re after a lightweight cordless, a super-powerful upright or the kind of brainy robot cleaner that’d give Will Smith night-terrors, these are the best vacuum cleaners currently available in Australia. They all suck, but in the best possible way.
