Help us at our small backpacking hostel in Gladstone, Australia

  • Marker details
  • DescriptionExperience the real Australia at Gladstone backpackers! Located off the beaten path midway between Rainbow Beach and Airlie Beach, Gladstone offers the unique blend of country, coast, entertainment, and shopping. Go adventuring like a true local to one of the many hidden beaches off the Southern Great Barrier Reef or come relax by the pool. We have a licensed bar and even our own hair salon with qualified hairdressers. Come join the other happy backpackers and become part of the amazing staff!

    We are looking for someone with a bright personality to help with cleaning and check in/outs. There is also work available for some basic renovations that need to be done on the property such as painting and building. Having an RSA and bar experience is a plus!

    We are offering free accommodation, breakfast, Wifi, laundry, pool, animals (meet our pet turtle, snake, and dog) in exchange for 3 hours of work a day. Since we are a small backpackers some days may be more or less work. If you go above and beyond you can earn a free day trip excursion, meal or beverage. We prefer a minimum of 1 week but if you have amazing skills just send us a message and we can arrange something. If you are able to stay longer than you can join some of our paid activities for free!
    If you are traveling as a couple we will try our best to get you a private room during your stay (depending on bookings).
