Backpacker travel agent

An easy way is to book an Australian tour with our specialist backpacker licensed travel agent. They can find the Australia travel package for you. And at really great prices. Just send them your needs directly or via the Australia travel shop or Australia tour listings. Read about some of the Australia tours. Our tour directory is designed with you, the backpacker in mind and you can find whatever tour you are looking for. Maybe an art tour in Melbourne or diving in the Whitsundays  or a visit to the Great Barrier Reef or some real adventures in the outback!

Queensland tours

Queensland is a very large and very diverse state. This is a definite must do for your backpacking travels (as is the whole of Australia). From diving and sailing in the Whitsundays on one of our Whitsundays tours, learning to surf in Noosa on one of our Sunshine Coast tours, or just hire a campervan to cruise from the Gold Coast to Cairns. Click above to explore our great Queensland tours.

New South Wales tours

New South Wales has many popular locations which everyone says you just have to experience and without a doubt, Byron Bay is one of them but don't forget to do a little research to find those hidden places where the buses don't arrive 4 times a day to unload passengers and you don't have to wait in queues to order a cold beer… plan well, take your time and see as much as you can… who knows when you'll be back? If you are into wine why not stop over at the Hunter Valley.

Victoria tours

Victoria is in the south east corner of Australia. In its capital Melbourne you'll find lots of great Melbourne tours. Victoria is the smallest state in Australia but is still the size of the British Isles! Victoria has coastline, national parks, forest, mountains all an easy reach from Melbourne. Warm to hot in the summer and cold to damp in the winter months. You won't go wrong if you do a trip along the Great Ocean Road.

Northern Territory tours

Australia is a big country with so much variety in its weather, terrain, vegetation and population. The Northern Territory is huge, hot, cold, dry, wet and fascinating. The capital city is popular with backpackers and is host to many fun Darwin tours and here you are in the tropics. There's not a lot of overcoat wearing in the Top End.

South Australia tours

Know what they say about South Australia? and Adelaide ...WOW. That's Wine, Outback,  Wildlife. Get ready for the state that serves it up in one great big  hit...explore our tours...

Western Australia tours

Western Australia is famous for sunshine and for beaches, and for a modern relaxed lifestyle. In fact, many visitors see only the relatively populated south-west of Western Australia, but, interesting though that area is, there is far more to the state than that and those who venture further north are rewarded for their efforts. The capital of Western Australia is Perth.

Tasmania tours

Tasmania is unique. It’s small, an island and is sometimes even left off maps of Australia. But despite its size, Tasmania has some of the best holiday spots in the country. It’s known as the Island of Inspiration and a good base to start might be the capital Hobart. Explore our Tasmania tours.
