Had a very relaxing time here. Clean, comfortable with friendly staff who could recommend great things to do in the area. I enjoyed the gardens (and the hammock), as well as the barbeque facilities. Would definitely recommend this place.

Just a few minutes away from the beach, this hostel is located on a very large site. The yard is very nicely arranged and the kitchen as well as bathroom and our room were all clean and nice. The wooden style of the whole hostel gives it a sort of atmosphere of, well, a woolshed. If you book your tour over the hostel you also get free wifi for the length of your stay.

Stayed here a few times now and all I can say is that it's a great place to stay. Nice clean rooms with fresh linen, good facilities and the staff are very helpful with local information. Parking for my motorcycle at the rear was adjacent my room so very handy for off loading and security camera's made it a stress free night, although this is Hervey Bay so I doubt it has any crime at all.

Clean, friendly staff, cool atmosphere! Had a great stay! Would definitely recommend this hostel to others! There are only two showers but lots of rooms have their own! The staff are super friendly and helpful and the atmosphere is great!

One of the quietest hostels I've ever stayed in but if you need a chill then this is def the best place. Rooms were really clean, as were bathrooms, and beds were comfy. No air con in rooms but had 2 ceiling fans which was more than enough. The kitchen was always spotless and had eveything you need to cook as well as free tea! The kitchen and common room area looks like it's a converted house so its quite cute. There's a couple of hammocks and other seating areas in the garden (which are really nice grounds) so just relaxing is easy!

I recently travelled up the Queensland coast,stayed a week at the aussie woolshed,which turned out to be the best backpackers I stayed at on the whole trip,apart from being a great place from which to go whale watching and trips to Fraser island the woolshed is so laid back and friendly , which made it the perfect place to chill out for a while, I enjoyed my time at the woolshed so much that I returned there on my return south and stayed for another three weeks,the staff are friendly and helpful,rooms are clean and the gardens good to laze around in.
Thanks to Megan and her staff.
I hope to visit the woolshed again soon.

We stayed a week at the Woolshed Backpackers. Most people seem to have shorter stays as using it as a convenient base to access Fraser Island, but we really enjoyed it to kick back and relax before our Fraser adventure. We went whale watching too which was amazing!!! Booked it all through the hostel.
The hostel is in a great location, close to the beach, local shops and the local Irish Bar which has live bands every weekend. During the day there are a couple of sunbeds and lovely hammocks to relax in which was great. Every Friday evening there is a free BBQ which was a great time to meet other travellers.
The rooms were really clean and well presented, and the kitchen was well equipped and clean, as was the bathroom. The staff are a great bunch too, really friendly and helpful.
Had a great time here, would highly recommend it.
