1770 Southern Cross Backpackers Reviews


Opened in December 2006, 1770 Southern Cross is a purpose built eco-friendly hostel located on a tranquil 16 acre block only minutes from the town centre and beautiful beaches of Agnes Water. Family owned and operated, we pride ourselves on offering our guests first-rate and friendly service, a clean luxurious environment and a holiday filled with unforgettable experiences and memories!

Here at Southern Cross, we're raising the standards of hostel accommodation without raising the price. Come check out our point of difference!

Southern Cross currently consists of beautiful cabins, a huge open plan common area including bbq and dining area, t.v lounge, games room, fully equipped kitchen, meditation/relaxation centre, and swimming pool. The surrounding gardens have been beautifully landscaped featuring many Australian trees and plants amongst hundreds of palms and bamboo, our furniture all made of solid local hardwood and teak and the venue decorated Balinese style. It is truly our own tropical paradise & the ultimate place to chill out! Spend your days lazing in the sun by our resort style swimming pool, or getting in touch with your inner-self in our newly built meditation centre.

Want more action..?

Action packed daytime tours - perfect for travelers on a budget -

Try a 3 hour scenic tour on your own mini chopper $75! Go hit the surf with the cheapest surf school on the East Coast - only $17 3hr minimum! Plus surf kayaking, wave jumping, fishing, snorkeling and diving at the most beautiful and untouched part of the Great Barrier Reef, plus so much more!

So what makes us so different..? So unlike any other hostel you have ever experienced..? Its that little bit of extra time, that little bit of extra expense, and that little bit of extra effort that makes us stand out above the rest. Every part of our hostel has been designed with your comfort and satisfaction in mind, and from our guests feedback, I think so far we're doing a pretty good job!
