Café 1820 at Port Campbell Hostel.
You’d be forgiven thinking that Café 1820 was being kept secretly hidden away for the pleasure of those in the know. Exquisite coffee in a unique and vibrant atmosphere is usually the reserve of expensive, crowded and trendy city coffee bars. The Port Campbell Ho(s)tel’s onsite coffee shop inside the ho(s)tel itself is a cosmopolitan mix of good coffee well made, select produce and delightful energy – the manager’s Italian.
On cold days, you can sit in the newly completed snug, a fireplace driven haven of warmth with an outlook to the bleak winter, while in summer, there are tables on the deck saturated with sea breezes from the quaint Port Campbell Beach 150-metres down the road. But the real joy – the magic – of Café 1820 is sitting sipping coffee in the Hostel’s common lounge area, among travellers, mixing with youthful dynamics and the casual attitude of people on the road.
There is also a carefully selected variety of cakes, biscuits, pastries and pies on sale. Travelers, whether staying at the ho(s)tel or not, can also purchase Breakfast, Lunch and Travel packs to eat in or take away.
Port Campbell Hostel is situated at 18 Tregea Street Port Campbell and Café 1820 can be contacted by phone: +61 3 5598 6305 or email
