  • Port Macquarie YHA - Ozzie Pozzie Backpackers

    Located halfway between Sydney and Byron Bay, Port Macquarie YHA is more like a resort than a backpacker hostel. Guests can relax in the poolside cabana, swim, or snooze in a hammock under palm trees. 

    Make new friends with a BBQ in our cosy courtyard, enjoy loads of entertainment in the games and TV/movie room, and hang out with Cheeky, our pet parrot. The town, shops, riverside cafes and bars are just a 5 minutes stroll away. This hostel is not recommended as suitable for children under 12 from December to April.


    • Highly recommended, the town is very nice and the hostel is just perfect!
