Melaleuca Surfside Backpackers Reviews


Melaleuca is an eco-friendly, architecturally designed retreat set on 6 acres of natural bushland. Our boutique style accommodation has been created using wood and glass to maximise light, space and harmony with nature. Just a 5 minute stroll across the road to the fabulous One Mile Beach and national park, it is home to a large variety of native wildlife including koala's. And is the only hostel with a wildlife sanctury on site.
Camping is also available - pick your own site in our bush setting and make use of our great facilities. Kombi's/Vans are welcome - we have lovely shaded spaces set aside - sites are not powered but all guests can use our main building that houses a fully equipped double kitchen and free BBQ's on surrounding decks.
Melaleuca also offers a fun Sandboarding adventure tour or Winery & Brewery tour, minimum numbers apply.
Your friendly hosts can arrange all your tours for you, and guarantee the cheapest price available on all activities including sandboarding,horse riding or quadbiking on the magnificent Stockton sand dunes, a surf lesson across at One Mile, dolphin cruises all year around and whale watching from May to November. Do as much or as little as you wish...
