Our Story

“Backpackers are free, curious and adventurous creatures. How do I know? Because I am one. Being a backpacker from the Netherlands, the bicycle capital of the world, the winds have blown me to every corner of this extraordinary planet. My appetite for adventure is boundless. Some call it escaping. I call it living.”

Valerie Rosenboom – Website creator

A life without adventure is a life un-lived. Rather than scrolling through pictures of dreamy getaways, be the one taking them. Take action and get involved!

At Backpacking in Australia, we are free spirits who love to wander the globe and experience new cultures. This is the heart and soul of our vision and who we are as backpackers. This website is designed by people just like you. We have been there, done that (probably even got the t-shirt). We understand that being fully prepared for travelling is vital, but know it’s only the tip of the iceberg. We unpack the essentials and start right from scratch. We won’t leave you hanging with any of the ‘should’ve’, ‘could’ve’ and ‘would’ve’ moments.

So, join in the journey. The adventure really begins with you!Treat yourself to an unforgettable adventure and remember to share it with us – we are always looking for new travelling tips and tricks.
