The Entrance Backpackers

At The Entrance Backpackers, you can do as little or as much as you like, the choice is yours! The Backpackers is situated in The Entrance, a picturesque town on the Tuggerah Lakes estuary, and a popular stop on the Central Coast. There are many who choose to spend regular weekends at this serene coastal resort and many others who arrive just for a day trip or an impromptu escape. The Backpackers is brand new and purpose built. The dorm rooms are bright and airy, and the communal lounge is modern and spacious. The Entrance Backpackers is a bright and cheerful spot to spend a few days while exploring this characterful town and its unique estuary environment.
