Welcome to Leichhardt House Student Hostel web site. Whether you are already a good friend of the Hostel, a potential friend, or browsing out of curiosity, we hope that you enjoy the information offered. Leichhardt House Student Hostel in Chinchilla is a boarding facility that accommodates boarders from the Western Downs region of SE Queensland. Our core business is the provision of a weekly (Mon-Fri) boarding service that enables residents to access local schools and community sporting groups as well as the local arts community. We see ourselves as integral to the future of both our community and rural Australia in general through providing a, quality, cost effective alternative to urban boarding schools, thereby, 'Keeping Kids in the Country'.
