COVID-19: Safe stay measures are in in place at all properties. YHA are following all state-based travel restrictions.

State of Origin 2021 Kicks Off!

State against state, mate against mate as Australia’s most spiteful sporting rivalry explodes again this winter.

In the blue corner, the cockroaches and in the maroon corner, the cane toads. That's right...chaos and disorder returns on both sides of the border - let's get ready to rumble!

NSW and QLD have been tearing strips off each other since 1980 and this winter will be no exception, as Queensland try to keep their hands on the shield for another year.
