Darwin YHA - Melaleuca on Mitchell

Darwin YHA is temporarily closed as it is shedding its skin and undergoing renovations during the wet season.

Located in the heart of the Northern Territory’s tropical capital, Darwin YHA – Melaleuca on Mitchell, has all the facilities to keep you cool in the heat. Grab a drink at the bar, laze by one of two pools or chill out under the waterfall spa. 

While we don’t have a date for when refurbishments projects will conclude, we will be updating this page as we receive news on the progress of the project. We apologise for any inconvenience caused, and can’t wait to see you at our YHA hostels.
