Port Macquarie YHA - Ozzie Pozzie Backpackers

Due to the shared nature of the facilities at YHA properties, YHA requires all guests to provide proof of full vaccination. A safe stay is our top priority so we have enhanced hygiene measures in place, along with social distancing practices. More information can be found here.

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.
