Australia is a huge country and there is so much to see and do here! For an active backpacker with a restricted budget and limited time, adventure tours can be the perfect way to go!

Australia has it all: Extreme nature with deserts, mountains, forests, white beaches and cosmopolitan cities. However, the distances are huge and it can be difficult for a backpacker to get to all of the unique places by yourself, especially if you are travelling solo.


Turn your vacation into an adventure!

When travelling to Australia, you have to do a lot of planning and research, especially if you don’t have much time.

Some of the top things to do in Australia are Great Barrier Reef, the Withsundays, East Coast cruising, Ayers Rock, Great Ocean Road, Sydney, Melbourne and the list goes on and on and on…

If you are keen on less planning and more doing and seeing, well, go on backpacker tours in stead! On backpacker tours you’ll get hauled around from one epic destination to another without having to lift a finger –except when sipping your cold can of beer!

In addition, it’s very social and you’ll meet a bunch of like minded people who can become your life long mates!
