  • Beautiful location, gorgeous cabins and surrounds. Amazing atmosphere with the hammocks around the pool and the bean bags on the deck. Staff were cheerful and helpful.

    Amazing place! Well done YHA Team! Keep it up...

    Roger S. (July 2014)

    Beautiful bungalows in a beautiful location. The sanctuary is really nice, and all the possums and wallabies running around at night were very cute and not really afraid of people. Overall a really nice place to stay!

    We will be coming back in about a weeks time ... We were very impressed ... Cheers, Geoff & Celeste

    Amazing hostel next to a koala park. I really enjoyed my stay, very laid back and relaxed atmosphere.

    Nice hostel for those who like beeing close to nature, because nature will also be in your room. Atmosphere is good, the bar is cosy and the pool area too. The guided tour and the photo with the Koala are a must do :)

    An amazing hostel. Very friendly people and a lovely place to stay. The wildlife park is very nice.
