Why stay at Imperial Backpackers?

At Imperial Backpackers, we strive to ensure that our facilities are well maintained, clean and safe for all backpackers and seasonal workers.  We maintain an excellent relationship with local farms to ensure that work is available for our guests.  Our staff are always happy to assist you with any inquiries you might have.  We have a maximum of 30 guests so it will feel more like home when you stay with us.

We are not a party hostel, and have a strict quiet time/no drinking time from 10.30 pm. This allows all guests to get a good nights sleep for work the following day.  Our accommodation and facilities are clean, well maintained and safe for both women and men.  When you stay with us, its not just a place to stay to get your work requirements finished – its a place you can make friends and remember it as part of your best holiday experiences.

Amazing accommodation and great farm work

5.0 rating

Imperial Backpackers is by far the best place I have found for farm work. The accommodation is clean, comfortable and secure and the hosts are fantastic. The farm work that they source is safe and reliable with no dodgy employers. Highly recommended!
