As I discover useful or interesting links related to travel, especially backpacking or budget travel, I will post them here along with a description.
This is only one of a zillion backpackers/hostels located around Australia but I personally stayed here for about a week and a half and I can attest to the fact that it's a very fun place to be. This backpackers will set residents up with regional farming jobs and provide transportation to and from work each day. This is particularly useful to anyone who is trying to get an extension on their working holiday visa. Email them for more information. The staff are extremely helpful and quick to respond.
Since I happen to work for this company here in Airlie Beach, I feel a little bit obligated to post this link. Also, Peterpans is just plain Awesome! They have offices all over Australia and even a couple in Asia. The staff are always super friendly and ready to help you plan your next adventure. Stop into a Peterpans office for some travel advice or even for a free hug if you are having a bad day. Peterpans can book your trips, your flights, help you file and Australia tax return and much, much more! I will post more useful info here as I learn things. I know there isn't much here yet but give me a break, i've only worked there for one day!
