Not a question but a comment for everyone's benefit. I used my United points to book a 3 night stay here in Australia. I was surprised at how many choices were available here, even in quite remote rural parts of Australia.

I am guessing but what I think you're saying you were surprised at how many places you could book with your united points.

From what I understand airlines don't go out to individual hotels and sign deals but instead use providers like Booking.com who already have the large hotel selection and then united pay the necessary amount to the booking provider and you end up with less points.

This is the same with many airlines not just United. Some Examples, Qantas, Air NZ, Singapore Airlines, Emirates and many other major airlines.
