Airlie Waterfront Backpackers



Location, location, location, that’s what it’s all about at Airlie Waterfront Backpackers. If you hate walking to get anywhere and want to be in the thick of the action, then this place is for you. It’s the closest backpackers to the bus stop, 150 metres away (great if you’ve got enough luggage to sink a battleship), it’s opposite the beach which means million dollar views and its also only minutes away from the swimming lagoon, what more could you want? Close to the restaurants and bars…you got it!

Backpackers’ accommodation doesn’t have to mean rooms without a view, or rooms that have seen ‘better days’. Rooms at the Waterfront Backpackers are squeaky clean and range from mixed dorms, private rooms and hotel style en suite doubles.

What guests love about the Waterfront Backpackers is the free internet access and the friendly, smiling staff, they’re not the kind that stay out all night enjoying the resort and aren’t around for you in the morning. The staff here are always eager to help out and advise on the best places to visit, the best trips and even offer free accommodation on some of their packages. The great thing is that they’re not tied to any of the operators
