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.

    Superb

    I loved this backpackers! It’s super chilled and extremely clean! The staff were great and I managed to book my whale watching tour at reception. There’s cats and a dog here as well which made it feel like being at home 😊 the WiFi was good and the kitchen/dining/tv room was the best, it had an outback farm feel and was really cozy! Also the pure amount of Hammocks here made it 10/10. Thanks for the stay, I’ll be back! 😊

    Stayed either side of Fraser Island. Staff were great as were the facilities. Having a tv was nice to chill in the evenings as the whole hostel had a homely feel. Free bike hire makes getting to the super market so much easier. Overall really nice place to stay and definitely recommend

    Ood value but alot of extra costs such as luggage storage and using amenities after checkout time. One staff memeber was very helpful and gave us good advice on adventures. The hostel was pretty quite this time of year and the town its self is very run down
