Australia is a vast country and travellers need to set aside a fair bit of time if they hope to explore the major cities, the outback and visit the beautiful stretches of coastline. One easy way of saving money on accommodation is to try working in backpackers. Plenty of Brisbane backpackers take on extra staff, often travellers, to help out behind reception or clean the dorm rooms. In return you can expect accommodation and sometimes a small wage on top depending on the hours you contribute. This is a great way to experience life as a local, getting to know the other staff and making friends with the other guests who will all be keen to explore the area, just like you.

Our backpackers say that staying at the Delta is like staying with family - and many of them stay here for months at a time. We currently have 4 backpackers who have been here for more than 4 months, and many more who have left and returned. In fact we have nicknamed one of our backpackers 'Yo-yo' - cause she keeps coming back. Next month will be her fourth time back here at the Delta this year! The Delta is like the Hotel California...you can check out, but you can never leave....
