Keiraleagh Backpackers Wollongong

The hostel is situated very close to some of Australia's best surfing beaches. There are many beaches within a few minutes walk, as well as a fishing harbour and 2 lighthouses . There is a bike and walking track that runs for many kilometres along the beach front, for your outdoor entertainment. We are also very close to many bush walking tracks. The hostel is situated right in the middle of town where there is a great café and bar culture , as well as many night spots. We have a very bohemian, bali-inspired hostel. The hostel is in a lovely heritage house which is eco friendly. We are solar powered and have a lovely back garden to chillout in.

The hostel has been mostly family run, but we are now needing other staff. I have owned the hostel for 25 years and live on the premises . Volunteers will be welcomed into our extended family
