Excellent friendly service in a very quiet and safe location; we have a vast knowledge for organizing all activities in the area and for a good discounted price available from our travel center. Here is not allowed for alcohol. The perfect spot for resting travelers.

Gecko's Backpackers is a Cairns City Council heritage listed building with big rooms and high ceilings offering free 24 hrs WiFi, free tea and coffee, free evening meal at the Gilligan's and all linen and towels for free. Gecko's is a very quiet and relaxing resort for backpackers, great for planning tours with a great discount guaranteed when booked at our travel center.

We have spacious indoor and outdoor areas, BBQ, nice tropical gardens and no bunk beds; all city attractions are within walking distance - 1km (kilometer) to Cairns city center- Cole’s supermarket and Cairns Central Shopping Center next door.Large clean kitchen and laundry facilities. We have an excellent backpackers’ atmosphere, but this is not a party hostel so you'll be able to have a good and safe rest; that's why Gecko's Backpackers has been recognized to be a quiet relaxing resort for resting travelers. Welcome to your home away from home.

Located in a quiet area, our guests can relax in our big deep swimming pool, or lie back in our inside garden and chill out reading a good book in an adequate environment. So with the promise of a relaxing and quiet night we have different kinds of rooms available.

Our Air conditioning is free of charge and no coins are needed. We also offer Free Wifi 24hours a day. Free safety deposit box & free Luggage storage. All night happy hour prices for our guests on Mondays and Fridays at the Gilligan's and free book exchange
