Welcome to One Big Family

Merbein Backpackers


The OBF Backpackers Lodge is situated in the popular farming town of Merbein, and is the latest addition to the town’s growing tourist trade. With modern luxury built into the old world charm of a hotel from the early 30’s, the OBF lodge is an ideal place to come home to – during your Mildura holiday.

Whether it’s a working holiday, or just a getaway – we cater to the needs of both local and international clientele. Close-by is the vibrant bustling CBD, which you can explore for a unique shopping experience. We recommend our locally grow fruit!

Our affordable accommodation was designed for comfort, so that anyone can enjoy their stay in my eclectic home town.

OBF provides our clients with a free airport bus pickup service, and personal direction on where to find the best temporary work during their stay. This means you don’t have to worry about transportation to our hotel, you can simply sit back and take in the sights.

The OBF Backpackers Lodge prides itself on quality client service, and we’ll do all we can to put you at ease in your new surroundings. We focus on the people here at OBF, and the experience that you’ll have when staying with us.

At the end of the day, kick back with friends at the Merbein pub that sits alongside our hotel. Here you can get delicious pub meals, drinks and good conversation – after your long day of exploration, or work!

Enjoy all the creature comforts of a large hotel, at backpacker prices. You don’t have to live without internet, television or a discreet cleaning service when you’re away from home.

For a memorable holiday with great people, superbly ornate décor and advice on where to go – put OBF Backpackers Lodge on the top of your destination list.

Your next holiday in Merbein can be something extraordinary, but it all begins with your choice of accommodation. Choose us for a dynamic holiday, and take the first step on your exciting Mildura getaway.
