Dougies Backpackers Resort is run by a bunch of us who had lots of fun backpacking around the world, so we decided to start a hostel ourselves.
We have been building Dougies Backpackers for over 18 years and have the relaxed atmosphere, without all of the formal procedures that some
hostels have. Our philosophy at Dougies is "Kick Back and Relax".
We have all of the hostel facilities that a fun lovin' backpacker could ever need, including a bar, refreshing swimming pool, free bbq, a huge
self-cook kitchen, facilities, shop, laundry, internet, satellite TV (really big one), hire bikes, fishing rods, tour desk and of course
accommodation (doubles, twins, share rooms, camping, van sites and our own stylish canvas tents).
Once you see our tropical gardens and cruisy front lawn you might justwant to lay back and relax under a palm tree, kick back in a hammock,
by the pool or you may even like to unwind on the grass and soak up some of the Far North's warm tropical sunlight. Our aim is to provide
a memorable highlight of your visit to Australia, whether you stay for just a few days or get a job in town and stay for months.
