Backpacker Services

Our Travellers Aid lounges are a haven for backpackers transiting through Melbourne.

    At Southern Cross Station we offer services such as hot showers, change rooms, sleeping pods and computers with internet access and at Flinders Street Station we offer luggage storage and computers with internet access. 

    Our staff and volunteers are always happy to help with basic tourist and travel information. Our fee-for-service activities to members of the general public raise funds that support people experiencing disadvantage or who have difficulties whilst travelling.
