United Backpackers expanding to Far North Queensland

Melbourne’s United Backpackers has announced it is expanding.

Australian Budget Accommodation that operates United Backpackers has recently taken over ownership of the 140-bed Parrotfish Lodge in the heart of Port Douglas.

“Its the Elephant Backpackers all over again but in a way, the worse shape the place is in, the more exciting it is as well!” said general manager Anna Heaton. “Lets just say the property needs a whole lot of love and renovations and these have already begun. Its the end of an era for the Parrotfish with all the guests already relocated and all going to plan, we will reopen as United Backpackers Port Douglas in time for peak season.

We know this is going to be a huge challenge and far north Queensland is certainly not Melbourne although we do hope to bring a little of Melbourne to FNQ. We will be doing what we do best and bringing our funky vibe, cool spaces and passion for providing an amazing guest experience to the area and we hope we can draw a few extra people to this simply spectacular part of the world!”

“The property will have a selection of deluxe private rooms, a pool, a bar, dining, TV lounge, pop up cinema and poolside bar and generally all the bells and whistles we’d expect from a brand new designer hostel.”
