Dougies Backpackers Resort Port Douglas
A couple of acres of land, lots of tropical palms and hammocks by the pool.
Port Douglas is your perfect base to explore the Great Barrier Reef, Cape Tribulation, Daintree Rainforest, Atherton Tablelands, Mossman Gorge and more. Just kick back and relax in the tropical village atmosphere of Port Douglas and its famous Four mile beach. Dougies is just 300 metres from the beach and a short stroll to the village centre.
We welcome you to Dougies and Port Douglas and if you are cruising up the coast then pop on in and let us look after you, you may never want to leave.
If you are looking for work during your travels come up to Port Douglas NOW. All Restaurants, Hotels, Dive/Snorkel Boats, and Spa's are looking for staff with the busy season starting. We have our Jobs Board at reception with heaps of jobs for you to grab and where better to stay for a few months :)
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).
We are located on the left hand side on the way into town so nice and easy to find.
Once you see our tropical gardens and cruisy front lawn you might just
want 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.
The local resorts, restaurants and bars are starting to look for staff as they prepare for our sunny winter season ahead.
We have a number of hospitality jobs available so now is the time to head North to live and work in tropical paradise.
To make it even easier to kick back 'n relax and do it Dougies style, we are offering share room beds for a weekly rate of only $140 during March
