BACKPACKING THROUGH AUSTRALIA

australia-0458ausd2013

You haven’t experienced the ultimate backpacker vacation until you’ve explored Australia. Believe us, backpackers; world travel just isn’t complete without a trip Down Under. Between the countless amazing beaches, the red earth and ancient history of the Outback - as well as gazing upon Sydney Opera House and Harbour Bridge - there’s really no reason NOT to go backpacking through Australia.

CBackpacking Australia alone can mean zillions of hours of research and planning you’ll never get back, so why not join Contiki for the ultimate Australia backpacking itinerary? As we’re the #1 youth travel company, we know all of the local hotspots and absolutely unmissable locales.

Backpacker tours in Australia are a bucket list item for so many reasons and we want to help tick off that sunset at Uluru, snorkelling in the Whitsundays and learning to surf in Byron Bay (with a side of Chris Hemsworth spotting).

We’ll connect you to the time of your life and show you the best local secrets around the big old island they call Australia. When you or your best mate backpacks Australia we want you to have the best time possible, and that’s why our itineraries and Trip Managers are always in the know!

A little known fact is that Australia has something to offer all year round. Summer or winter, make sure you pack a bikini because there’s always sun in Australia’s Queensland! Speaking of packing, whether you decide to bring a suitcase or backpack for Australia, the best luggage is anything big enough to hold all your Vegemite and Tim Tams!
