We only stayed one night, but the hostel was very friendly. Great kitchen. Enjoyed meeting Dean and Chief - thanks for the beers. Excellent welcome from Bridgette. Private double room was good and the bathrooms were really clean. Real fireplace in the common room which was a great touch. Would stay again if we were in the area.

I found this hostel via Google as I wanted to visit the Tableland because they have some of the most beautiful tracts of country in Queensland. I'd been in touch before hand for time of my arrival on a late Saturday night (10pm)where I was greeted by the staff and most of the hostel lodgers, who were all very friendly... More

We had one of most amazing days, we seen beautiful landmarks. We got really lucky with our guide, he kept everyone entertained and told us a lot of stories, which kept the day going really nice. The lunch was really simple, just plain chicken with bread and salad, but it didn't ruin our day. I would definitely recommend this company,... More

I had the best time in Australia at On The Wallaby Backpackers Lodge! I did the two day/one night tour -- and my tour guide Bart on the first day was hilarious, sweet, and awesome. We viewed gorgeous landscapes from lookouts, swam in waterfalls, and learned some cool facts about flora and fauna in the rainforest. That evening, we had... More

We spent 2 amazing days at Yungaburra, mountain biking, canoeing and walking in the rain forest. We met a very friendly staff. See you soon guys! We joined them for a nice Aussie BBQ and we ate a lot of fruit. Rooms and toilets were always tidy and cleen.

We unfortuanly did the error off picking the tour with... More

Paul picked our group up in the morning and right off the bat I knew he was going to be a great tour guide. He got the whole bus involved with music, games, and just made the trip fun! We really packed it in the first day: waterfalls, volcanic crater pools, jungle walks, and ended the day with a delicious... More
