Top 5 spots In Australia For Backpackers:

Here are some awesome locations in Australia recommended by Jolly Swagman Backpackers Sydney that you need to check out!

Frequently voted the ultimate destination for backpackers, Australia has a lot to offer. With its endless beaches, mesmerising scenery and friendly locals (both animals and humans!), it is easy to see why Australia has always been a popular place to travel around. There is so much to see and do

there, but this can be a bit overwhelming when you’re just starting out. Here are five of the most popular spots in Australia that every backpacker must check off to help you transform this journey into a trip of a lifetime:




No trip to Australia is complete without experiencing all that Sydney has to offer. Of course, there’s the obligatory photo in front of the Sydney Opera House, perhaps even climbing the bridge, but there’s also a fantastic nightlife in Sydney that should be experienced. The Star Casino, for example, is the second largest casino in Australia and overlooks Darling Harbour. It is the perfect location to relax and unwind in the evening over a game of poker or two, but be sure to practice your skills online before you get there, using sites like Euro Palace to maximise your chance of success!


Visit the Neighbours set and walk down Ramsay Street


This is an Australian must, especially for backpackers from the UK. The opportunity to visit Ramsay Street and to have your photograph taken underneath its iconic street sign will have all of your friends back home seething with jealousy. The Neighbours set is based in Melbourne, and there are official tours to guarantee that you don’t miss out on any of legendary locations such as Erinsborough High.


The Great Ocean Road


Following on from our trip down Ramsay Street in Melbourne is this stunning coastal road. The Great Ocean Road runs 234km from Torquay (aka the birthplace of Quiksilver and Ripcurl) to Allansford. The scenery along the route is breath-taking, with the likes of the magnificent Twelve Apostles, there are also lots of activities such as surfing to keep you entertained en-route.




Seventeen Seventy (or 1770) is a small village in Queensland which is where James Cook landed in May 1770; it was originally called Round Hill, but its name was changed in 1970 to commemorate its historical association to Cook and his crew. Every year in May, there is the 1770 Festival where the community re-enacts the landing making it the ideal site for those interested in learning some more about Australian history.


The Whitsunday Islands


These islands belong to the Great Barrier Reef national park and are, quite frankly, stunning. Endless beaches and crystal blue water mean that this is the perfect place to unwind. Drop off your backpack and can relax on the beach or take a snorkelling trip to discover the amazing wildlife living in this part of the world. Either way, these islands cannot be missed!
