Great little hostel tucked away

We had a double bed private room, although the hostel was very quiet during our stay with only a couple others staying in the shared rooms. The was very clean and provided everything we needed during our stay. Would recommend.

Family style hostel catering for older couples (us!), as well as various independant travellers and a bus load of young people at the same time. Our room was secure, private and clean, shared cooking and bathroom facilities as expected. We chose to join in the Aussie BBQ for dinner, reasonable value for money, but could easily have walked to one of several local eateries. The highlight for us was walking quietly along the stream at dusk as we had a good view of several platypus in the wild. We sort of viewed a tree kangaro - more as a brownish blob in the high trees. Had a much better view of the tree kangaroo at the Tea Planation the next day. We were impressed with the variety of activities and equipment on offer for the energetic. Definitely recommend On the Wallaby

On The Wallaby is absolutely fantastic! Maree is an absolutely gem and she goes above and beyond for all the guests. Mum and I decided to spend another night and Tracey moved everything around so that could be possible and we could stay in the same room. Mum was super stoked on that! The lodge is beautiful and super clean. What I loved the most was their dedication to being green. They're doing it all right. My mum has never done hostels before and she loved it there. It was her favorite of the entire trip, and that says a lot! Thanks again to the entire team for everything.
