As always, TNT Magazine is here to help. Every year we host the Golden Backpack Awards, which recognise those in the travel industry who are working extra hard to make visitors to Australia and New Zealand have the experiences of a lifetime.

Even better? The finalists are voted for by the backpackers themselves, and so you can sleep peacefully knowing these places of accommodation across Australia have been given the seal of approval from fellow travellers.

From comfy beds with fresh linen and roof-top swimming pools to awesome staff and prime locations, these places of accommodation across Australia have been voted as the top in the country. To find out the overall winner, announced November 6, keep an eye on our website.

For the list of finalists covering accommodation in Western Australia, South Australia, New South Wales, Victoria, Northern Territory, Tasmania and Queensland, as well as our other awards categories including Best Backpacker Night, Tour Provider, Visitor Attraction and more, click here
