Eco Beach is the perfect place to unwind and relax.
The resort location was unbelievably tranquil and the staff were incredibly attentive yet non intrusive Far away from the world and it’s recent dramas. Heavenly! How lucky are we in Australia to have locations such as Eco beach resort at our doorstep. Just as the name suggests, earthy and eco friendly. No airs and graces, just a true Australian escape from the ‘rat race’.
Eco implies eco–friendly and I think the villa ticked a few of those boxed. Certainly the central wall operated lighting system meant that you didn’t leave too many lights on, but a few instructions for the elderly on how to use it would have been helpful!
Lovely large sized rooms, but devoid of a bit of character – no pictures on the walls, but the best picture is the beautiful beach that was devoid of crowds of people!
You might have been able to self cater in the villa if you were prepared to only have a BBQ as there were no cooking facilities except a kettle and microwave. Having said that all the meals we had were outstanding at Eco Beach – from breakfast, lunch & dinner.
The location of the resort and the view from our villa out to the expansive beach were breathtaking. Some of the highlights were: walking along the beautiful beach both during the day at around sunset, the ‘mud and bubbles’ experience – so much fun, morning yoga on the beach, delicious food, helpful and friendly staff. And all done with a strong eco and sustainability focus. All in all we had a wonderful time. Definitely worth the 70 min drive from Broome.
At the end of a dusty road from the highway, Eco Beach Resort is a true oasis. We were welcomed and found out villa to be fresh and clean and spacious. We loved the dimensions and design, a big lounge dining kitchen area, a king bedroom and ensuite shower room.
A large covered deck area was perfect for a drink and relax after a hard day on the beach or by the resort pool. This place is perfect as a getaway. No tv, and hardly any mobile phone reception.
We indulged in meals at the restaurant and while the menu isn’t large, the food is tasty, well cooked and top class. Well done kitchen staff! There’s always drinks and bar snacks available too. All staff were very friendly and helpful.
The beaches here are great, sunsets sublime. We loved this place and will return for another stay. Highly recommended!

Riding the bikes around the property allowed us to see the wildlife in their natural state. We were lucky enough to see many kangaroos and even wombats! Also the walk to the Glow worm tunnel was absolutely breathtaking and well worth exerting ourselves for 🙂
The setting of this place is stunning – a vast valley surrounded dramatically on all sides by beautiful sandstone escarpments that change colour with the light. Definitely a 6-star natural setting.
I LOVED the conservation mindset that pervades the place. The absence of cars (except for the resort’s own vehicles) is delightful and creates a sense of peace I really appreciated. In the villa’s bathroom, there was no wasteful miniature plastic-packaged bathroom products, but instead the high-quality shampoo etc is in attractive pump dispensers in the shower area. The bars of soap are wrapped in a simple paper label, no plastic. There’s a recycling bin in the dressing room and even the little mat to put your glass on beside the bathroom hand basin is reusable cloth, not paper.
These little eco-friendly touches, executed in a classy way, were very much in keeping with the overall approach of the resort.
The staff are lovely and strike a nice balance of Australian casual friendliness with dignified service, the food is excellent and the “free” activities were fun. The decor of the main homestead and the villas is lovely and I loved the majestic feeling of the high ceilings in both.
Each lodge had the use of binoculars, brollies, mountain bikes, iPad and complimentary mini-bar. The service was friendly and very sincere. We took advantage of an evening wildlife tour (great, many wombats, roos and wallabies) and the Conservation morning (also great, learnt about how the resort is so eco friendly and planted a few small trees.)
For a special occasion, this resort is magnificent.

Possibly the best hostel I have been to in Aus/NZ!
-Beds are clean and comfortable, rooms have massive lockers and all en-suite toilet/shower. Extra toilets/shower/bath on each floor if needed. Own charge point/light per bed.
-Kitchen is big! Gas cookers! Lots of space and storage in both shelving and fridge. Kitchen is open 24/7. Filtered water available
–Eco friendly hostel, very big on recycling and energy conservation.
-Big lounge, plenty of charge points. TV room on roof.
-Events each day of the week!
-Rooftop with sunbeds/hammocks and awesome view of the Sydney Opera House! Especially good during the Vivid Light Festival as you do not need to fight for a good viewing spot!
-Laundry room ($4 for wash, $4 for dry, washing powder $2)
-Great location as you are close to the Harbour (access to Manly, Taronga zoo, Darling harbour, Parramatta)
-Close to two trains stations (Wynyard and Circular keys), both have direct trains to the Airport. If you do stay at YHA Sydney Harbour and are taking the train, make sure you get off at Wynyard as it is much easier to get to the Hostel.
-Staff are always plenty and very helpful!
-Family Friendly hostel!
The views from the roof terrace are so Sydney- wonderful. The many steps of The Rocks will keep you fit but they are a very good shortcut. For anyone requiring more level walking, get off the airport train at Wynyard (12-15 mins walk slightly uphill but only, 7-10 the other way) and it is a gentler straight route. We saw many people struggling with suitcases from Circular Quays station, as we had ourselves. If only we’d known about Wynyard.
We stayed in a private room with ensuite and harbour view of the Opera House! Simple, spotless, comfortable, with fabulous shower, air conditioning and flat screen TV!
Our room was serviced everyday with tea and coffee, and clean towels were always available at reception. Plus there’s the added interest of the Archeological Site right below the hostel.
Reception staff were so friendly and helpful (same can’t be said of many of the guests at the time, who seemed unable to smile). Wifi was free in common room. The hostel was amazingly quiet too and very eco conscious.
Great history where it sits in the heart of The Rocks. Rooftop patio that looks out to Sydney’s incredible harbour, Opera House and the Sydney Harbour Bridge. Spotless rooms that have AC. A variety of rooms to choose from. Great shared kitchen/social area, movie room and lockers to rent if that suits your needs.
Fantastic location to many great pubs/wine bars, eateries, shopping and must see attractions. A great place to stay to catch a ferry for a harbour ride and/or to explore little towns by ferry. Just a bargain for just the location! Love that it is was also eco-friendly!
A lot of hostels in Sydney are below standard, but not this one. The double ensuite had a view of the harbour, was huge, comfortable, clean and class=”_3f5ztoLj”>eco friendly. The location was fantastic, on an archaeological site bearing remnants of the city’s first European inhabitants. The Rocks is also my favourite part of the city with great cafes and restaurants, history lurking around every corner and a wonderful art supplies store!
The common areas were large and nice and the cherry on the cake was the roof terrace with the breathtaking view of Sydney’s most valued landmarks.
