One of the best hostels I've ever been to. Unlike what other reviews said - there IS air conditioning and fans in the rooms, and no insects everywhere (as of July 2018). This hostel is amazing especially for its price, you get to stay in...More

I stayed here at the Jackaroo hostel this month and absolutely loved it. The serenity of being in the middle of the rainforest in a beautiful treehouse was unreal. After travelling up the busy East coast it was a perfect place to chill, relax and...More

I was there for 2 nights. The hostel is far away from the city but you have 8 shuttle every day from/to the hostel and it's free! It's the good point! The other good point was, for me at least, the rain forest as a...More

I stayed 2 nights but wish I had stayed longer. Very friendly staff, great atmosphere and beautiful location with incredible views. At night they have events in the bar so it’s very easy to socialise and meet new people.

Not an enjoyable night's sleep. Over 30 mosquito bites, 5 spiders above my bed, shaky and loud bunk bed followed by a hard and ripped blanket. However,if you're after outdoorsy it might be ok and a good shuttle service to and from the town!

Description
When you stay at the Jackaroo Treehouse in Mission Beach, it is an experience like no other. Set in the beautiful world heritage tropical rainforest of Far North Queensland, it is a slice of paradise. Come and ...More experience something out of the ordinary. This beautiful giant treehouse boasts large open living areas, a large commercial kitchen, spacious rooms and a stunning sundeck overlooking the pool area with hammocks and sun lounges. Then, if that’s not enough, a lush green tropical rainforest as a backdrop. Who would have guessed that a treehouse could be so cool! The atmosphere is unmistakably friendly and laid back. You can take a short walk to the pristine Bingil Bay beach, venture out to the Great Barrier Reef for a day of snorkelling or scuba diving, go skydiving in Mission Beach, ride the rapids while white water rafting down the Tully River, hike through the rainforest searching for the elusive Cassowary, or just spend your hours lying by the pool taking in the rays. It’s the perfect place to take a break, or enjoy all that the outdoors has to offer. Then, at the end of your day, you can grab an icy cold beer and chill to great beats as the sun sets at the hostel’s very own bar ‘Jack’s Jungle Bar’. So join in the fun, and Get Involved! Less
