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 now is a good time as it is peak season and many restaurants, bars, hotels, dive boats, and resorts are looking for staff. We have our Jobs Board at reception with plenty of jobs on it.
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, hire bikes, fishing rods, tour desk and of course accommodation (doubles, twins, share rooms, cabins, glamping tents and van sites).
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.
