Away with the Fairies Backpackers

In woodland off the R345 road, this unassuming backpacker lodge is 4 km from both Hogsback State Forest and the Ecology Shrine art installation, and 20 km from the Tyhume River.

Simple dorms with bunk beds sleep up to 8 and have shared bathrooms. Private rooms with en suite facilities are available, and a detached 2-bedroom cottage adds a kitchenette.

There’s a low-key bar and a communal kitchen; homemade breakfast and pizzas are served for a fee. Activities include hiking, biking and climbing, as well as bird-watching and archery. Camping is allowed in the garden
