Mount Warning - Murwillumbah is so perfect for anyone trying to find a hostel away from the tourist crowds in Oz that it almost hurts. The reason for this isn't that the town wouldn't be worth visiting but simply that the nearby Gold Coast and the well-known town of Nimbin that isn't too far either draw all the crowds. That leaves this wonderfully charming little gem to the few who find it.

The location is absolutely pristine with marvelous views of the lush, green surroundings and the mountains. Also the river running through town adds much to its atmosphere. Murwillumbah is a small place with an old-style Ozzie inner city with a little of this and a little of that, but nothing big and nothing special -- just the right place to relax and take in unspoilt, everyday Ozzie life. On offer is everything travelers might need though such as laundry, supermarkets, and internet. There are also plenty of activities around such as renting bikes, hiking, or river rafting in tubes (rented out by a Mount Warning - Murwillumbah hostel).

Due to the town being tiny and slightly unknown, the range of Mount Warning - Murwillumbah hostels is very limited. It's more of the homestay and guesthouse type of place. But what does exist in terms of Mount Warning - Murwillumbah hostels has some true marvels! You could reside in an old captain's villa, have the best top-deck spot, or hang out in a lush garden setting. Please heed that there might be restrictions on the guests that can stay! There might be a strictly enforced "no party people" rule! But then again if you are looking for a party hostel, Murwillumbah is not the place to go. The chances you might be one of just a handful of guests at any given time of the year are actually quite high.

Getting to and from Murwillumbah by public transport is a bit of a pain with bus connections being very limited (but it is possible, just plan ahead). To get around in town, your feet as the major form of transportation will be very much sufficient -- just take one of the hand-drawn local maps with you!
