Imperium Tourism Holdings Announces New Hostel in Cairns with Freedom Hostels Launch

The Imperium Group is excited to announce the opening of Freedom Cairns, its new ‘flashpacker’ hostel experience in the heart of Cairns, QLD. This is the first property to be launched under our newly created brand, ‘Freedom Hostels’.

We aim to use the new Freedom Hostels brand to expand our offering by providing high-quality accommodation at a competitive price to an expanded range of travellers. The launch of Freedom Hostels follows several acquisitions by Imperium Tourism Holdings as it builds out its portfolio of adventure, travel, tourism and technology businesses these include the recent acquisition of the Discovery Group in Noosa, QLD and Byron Bay Tours in Byron Bay, NSW.

Group General Manager Barry Downes said, “This new development stems from an increase in demand particularly from our European markets for a higher quality hostel accommodation at a fair price. Freedom Hostels is all about satisfying this market demand and providing our guests with a quality experience in a modern, safe environment with a distinct local personality. Freedom Hostels is something we believe that our guests will love and we are confident demand for this type of product will continue to grow.”

The centrally located hostel building has been fully refurbished to a very high standard and boasts many great in-room and communal amenities.

Freedom Cairns will be led by Kyle Greene, who has extensive experience in hostel management roles in Australia and overseas. Kyle will be supported by Guest Services Manager Cassie Marriott, who was previously the Guest Services Manager at Qualia a world-renowned Australian five-star resort.
