Property Description

The Woolshed is a small, truly unique, multi-award winning Backpackers built along the theme of an Aussie Woolshed. Clean, friendly, quiet, family run hostel. The perfect escape from the hostel party circuit. Our rooms are spread out over 4 buildings situated on 1 acre of lush tropical gardens and a large lawn! We are located right in the center of Hervey Bay and only a 400m walk to the beach, shops, supermarket, restaurants and a couple of good pubs.
We have FREE WiFi which is available throughout the Woolshed and in all rooms. And now offer FREE bike hire to all guests, which is a great way to explore the beautiful beachfront of Hervey Bay and even discover wild Kangaroos!

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 won 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 to save you money!

Relax and unwind in our tranquil surroundings. Our tropical gardens, surrounded by ponds, palms and gum trees attract 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 guests, find new friends, have a quiet 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.

Our office hours are 7am - 2pm then 4pm - 7pm Mon-Fri. 7am - 11am then 4pm - 7pm Sat & Sun. Late or after hours check ins can be arranged (24 hours!) Please phone or email to arrange. For all dorm room bookings a valid international passport must be presented at check in. If you do not present a valid international passport/identification upon check in, you will not be staying in a dorm room. View House Rules

    Lovely chilled hostel. Only a few minutes walk to the beach and cafes/restaurants. Very clean and nice areas to hang around in e.g. hammocks, garden, BBQ area, indoor lounge. WiFi changed whilst we were there and the new WiFi seems to be super. (Quick tip: check there is hot water before you take your clothes off for a shower,if there isn't tell reception and they will quickly swap the gas for you)

    Good value for money. Pros: really nice dogs and cat who live here The whole place is really clean -feels like your the first person to use it Staff where helpful Lots of nice places to sit and relax in hammocks etc Gardens are nice with outdoor cooking facilities Decent mattresses/ showers Cons: WiFi is almost unusable. You have to keep logging in using your personal username and password. Not the best setup. The internet is slow here in Hervey bay.

    Really helpful staff, got a transfer from bus stop which was great, nice rooms with a TV(!) and fast WiFi in rooms. My only problem was that me and my 2 friends booked and paid for a 3 room but got put in a 4, but enjoyed our stay nonetheless.

    A good stopover to access a day trip to Fraser island, some great volunteer workers (Joseph and Daphne were fantastic!!), one staff member seemed condescending and patronising rather than putting in any extra effort. Good wifi, hot water, pretty quiet common area but has everything you would need, walls are paper thin.

    - Landlord very rude, personnel was friendly and tried really hard, but that does not help if their boss is not forthcoming or friendly at all - Dirty bathrooms with heaps of hair lying around - taps were leaking --> huge waste of water; some on the other hand only dripped - Wifi didn't work properly --> so slow even Whatsapp did not work Overall not a very pleasant experience
