Only stopped over for one night - bit awkward to park hired car - had to move between overnight and daytime parking. Excellent kitchen. Loud outdoor movie late in evening. Great location for base into red centre.

Als ich einchecken wollte, war leider keiner am Empfang. Ich habe bestimmt 5min gewartet, bis jemand gekommen ist und ich konnte mich nicht durch eine Klingel oder so bemerktbar machen. Auch war morgens keiner an der Rezeption anwesend um 7:15, damit ich Frühstück hätte kaufen können.

sehr gut geführte Jugendherberge mit einer ansprechenden großen Küche und einem tollen Gelände, wo die heimischen Vögel begrüßen.

The receptionist conveniently "forgot" to deduct our membership discount. Forewarned from our experience at Cairns YHA we had to point out that we were entitled to the discount.
