Visited the woolshed on our last night in Australia after a recommendation from the travellers oasis, we got 30% off what was already easily the most reasonably priced meal we had in Aus. For 3 of us, we had 2 burgers and chips and a Caesar salad with a cider and 2 G&Ts and it came to less than $60.... More

Great place for a night out in Cairns. Lots of drink offers and each night of the week has themed nights for Backpackers. Anyone visiting Cairns needs to go here.

Service was very quick and the food was tasty and a decent price. I had the stuffed mushrooms and they were good. Quite a popular place to drink by the look of how many people were there

Especially if you are staying with Traveler's Oasis, this restaurant is totally great. It's within walking distance of the hostel and you get 30% off your meal as an Oasis guest. We both ate for $27. The vibe is cool and the staff is helpful. Odds are we will eat here again.

I've visited this place twice, on the first night the DJs were as bad as I've ever heard, no song lasted longer than the first chorus which considering it tries to be a nightclub is absolutely atrocious. Secondly I went on Halloween dressed with fake blood all over my top half and got turned away. This wouldn't be an issue,... More

The Woolshed is a pub-style restaurant that has big portions and tasty food. Monday-Thursday there is a $10 special which is different each day. We went on Thursday and it was fish and chips and for an extra $2 you got a pretty decent sized salad. The food was so good we went back the following Thursday. Some of us... More

Haven't eaten here but went for a backpacker night out. Drinks reasonable $7 for a glass of wine. Good music would consider more of a night club than a bar, we enjoyed our night!

Been for food twice with my friends had the Cajun chicken an beef wagyu burger. Both delicious quick service and very friendly helpful staff. The serving of chips is very generous so don't worry about going hungry. Top place for some nice food.
