The Woolshed Back Packers

The Woolshed Back Packers

Clean friendly and quiet. Rated by Lonely Planet as 'OUR PICK' for budget accommodation in Hervey Bay... second edition in a row (2007-2011). The Woolshed is an escape from the party circuit. Our rooms are spread out over four buildings situated on one acre of tropical gardens, a fish pond, gum and palm trees. This natural bush setting attracts plenty of wildlife. To socialise and eat check out our rustic common room, it resembles an Aussie Woolshed and is entirely built of wood and oozes character and atmosphere.

We are so sorry you did not enjoy your 1 night stay at the Woolshed Backpackers. I would suggest if luxury is what you are seeking, for around double the price you can have a 4-5 star apartment on the esplanade with all the extra's.... We are a multi award winning, well respected and very popular Backpackers/Hostel who cater for the budget minded traveller, and will continue to do so...

Yes a beautiful location. Fantastic weather, beaches and natural attractions of Hervey Bay and the awesome atmosphere, setting and uniqueness of the Woolshed. We do apologize about the door bell. We have looked into this and relocated the door bell to a more suitable, and quiet! location.

I'd be as surprised as you were if I discovered cable TV in one of our rooms, considering we don't have cable TV?!? We do have the faantastic Australian digital free to air service which give us about 40 channels, plus all our TV's have inbuilt DVD players with free access to our DVD library in Reception. We have researched our Wi/Fi prices and deliberately set them under the standard range. But remember, Wi/Fi is FREE when you book any tour through the Woolshed.
