Murwillumbah YHA - Mt Warning

Murwillumbah YHA is a great short and peaceful break from Byron Bay and the Gold Coast. The hostel has free Wi-Fi hotspot, premium Wi-Fi Plus, stunning views of World Heritage listed Mt Warning and is located right on the shores of the Tweed River.  The house was originally a ferry captain's home (1922-1932) featuring riverside gardens, the staff and guests have created a quirky décor and a homely atmosphere. Being a small hostel, guests can meet and socialise easily. It’s famous for free ice cream provided at 9pm most nights, gathering guests together. 

This cosy backpacker accommodation makes a great base to explore Mount Warning, National Parks, rainforest, and waterfalls. Experience a typical Aussie community, see the murals and graffiti wall, swim or kayak the peaceful Tweed River.

Free bike hire with every 2-night stay, and free kayak hire with every 3-night stay. 

The walking track at Mt Warning is now open again to the public: Book our specials for hostel package including transport out to the start of the walk.
