About Aussie Woolshed

Here at the Woolshed Backpackers we like to do our best to make all of our guests feel very welcome and at home. Which is not hard as we live here too! We are well aware that travelers have different expectations, budgets and tastes which is why we have set up a wide variety of rooms to suit all budgets.

We have been awarded Tripadvisor's award of excellence for the last 2 years, along with Cleanliness awards, Best Atmosphere awards, voted top 10 Hostel in Australia, been Lonely Planets 'Our Choice' for budget accommodation in Hervey Bay in multiple editions and are mentioned in more travel guides than we knew existed.

There is a great range of Fraser Island tours departing from the Woolshed every day as well as whale watching cruises during the whale watch season and can be booked through the hostel at no extra charge. Talk to us... we offer independent advice based on local knowledge and experience and always have deals/packages available.

Relax and unwind in our pleasant surroundings, our rooms are spread out over 4 different buildings situated within a large tropical garden, surrounded by ponds, palms and gum trees. This natural setting attracts a lot of wildlife, there is daily parrot feeding, possums like to drop in for a visit and Hervey Bays famous fruit bats can be spotted most evenings as they fly in their thousands over the Woolshed on their way to Fraser Island.

If you would like to meet the other guests, find new friends, have a drink and a chat, why not drop in at our common room. It resembles an Aussie Woolshed, is entirely built of wood, oozes character and has a surreal atmosphere that needs to be experienced. There is a well equipped kitchen within this building with gas cookers, microwave, fridge, freezer and lots of cooking gear. Free wifi is available throughout the hostel
There are no hidden extras like linen fees, day use fees or crockery deposits.
