Backpacker Tours was founded in 1999.
Matthew Bennell – also the founder of Enigma Concepts – was an early-adopter of web technologies. Based in Queensland’s Sunshine Coast,Backpacker Tours was nurtured into a market leading platform for backpackers in Australia.
Backpacker Tours was a staple during the industry’s peak during the early 2000’s. Travel packages and adventure tours were sold to thousands of working holiday makers throughout Australia. (Backpacker Tours in 2000 via Internet Archive)
Backpacker Tours was the first of its kind and dominated the backpacker travel and tours market online.
BackpackerTours.com.au was acquired in August 2019 by Five Bees Media Pty Ltd (ABN: 70 631 879 546).
