Located only 2.5 hrs north of Sydney and 10 minutes away from Nelson Bay, SAMURAI YHA Backpackers Resort is a great spot to stop on your travels along the East Coast backpacker trail or to escape the city for a few days.
SAMURAI accommodates guests in rustic bungalows surrounded by jungle gardens. There is a laid-back and welcoming atmosphere—where the Staff knows your name and it’s easy to meet other travellers. Lounge around The Lagoon-style pool, hang out in The Shed, or sit back and spot wildlife from the open verandas. SAMURAI YHA caters for a variety of guests with bunk-style Backpacker Rooms, Family Rooms, and Deluxe Double Rooms.
The Whales are on their way back down the coast. Dont miss your chance this year to see the magnificent Humpback Whales as they cruise down the east coast. Check them out from the rocks at Boat Harbour or take one of the many fantastic Whale watch cruises that depart from Nelson Bay for about $50 for a 3 hour cruise...
SAMURAI YHA Backpackers Resort is situated directly along the koala corridor, and we often have koalas visiting the property. Other ‘wild’ guests include kookaburras, Pete the friendly Possum, and our resident reptile Syphon dePython.
Near to 26 excellent beaches, the Worimi Conservation Lands and sand dunes, Great Lakes Marine Park, and Tomaree National Park—SAMURAI Backpackers is a nature lover’s paradise. We can direct you to or organize: bush walks, mountain biking, surfing, dolphin watching, snorkelling/diving, boating and more.
