Flashpackers, Noosa

Between us at RatPack we can safely say we’ve seen hundreds & hundreds of hostels around the world, so we know what makes a good un when we see one! Luckily for us (and you ratpackers) some of our ultimates are right here in Aussie and come at a price tag that fits in a backpackers budget which you KNOW we are alllllllll about. Saving you $$$ every step of the way yewwwwwwww.


Noosa - One of the Fraser Island start points!

Just north of Brisbane and top of the sunshine coast you’ll find the epic spot that is Noosa, home to sick surf, sandy beaches, a national park that tops the list with secret fairy pools and koalas and sunset spots like NO other. Noosa is also one of the gateways to the unreal world largest sand island Fraser Island {A firm RatPack fave}. Whilst you are in Noosa make sure you head to Laguna Lookout to watch the sunset, chow down a burger at Betty’s Burger andhike around the national park in search for Koalas & secret fairy pools. Its one of our fave east coast spots FOR SURE.

You’re going to need somewhere to stay whilst you are in this epic spot (we recommend a good few days by the way, a couple either side of your Fraser Island tour) and luckily we know just the hostel. Noosa Flashpackers is an absolute DIAMOND where you’ll get that true hostel experience in an absolute luxury setting, this place is the real deal and offers super modern facilities, the comfiest beds, an awesome event schedule & the whole vibe of the place is luxury thanks to the epic staff and how clean and tidy it is!

Flashu Facilities on a RatPacker Budget

One thing you’ll crave is a really comfy bed when you are on the road and Flashpackers offers backpacker comfort at its finest. In your room you’ll have your own plug and light which we all know is an absolute luxury and a game changer. Not only does this spot have the best hostel kitchen we’ve ever seen it also has a comfy lounge and a beautiful pool area with loungers and tables, expect BBQ’s! The crew here know what its all about when it comes to hostel events, they have a weekly schedule including BBQ, Cheese & Wine, Pizza, Movie night and even offer a free shuttle bus to get you in and out of town.

RatPack Recommends: Noosa

One of the main reasons people come to Noosa is for Fraser Island! Head out from Noosa with the crew at Dropbear Adventures or Nomads Fraser Island Tag Along Safari for an epic 2day/1night or 3 day/2night camping safari to properly see the island in its true glory! Hit us up for more info about these tours and we’ll even get you at least 10% discount off the tours. Another RatPack recommendation is to skydive in Noosa, here you’ll get to actually land on the beach, which is an incredible experience!
