Welcome To Travel: Melbourne | The Perfect Start To Travelling Australia

Why Melbourne?

Melbourne is the world’s most liveable city and has been for the last 7 years. Aside from that it is just cool. With street filled art, some of the best food you will ever taste and one of the best coastlines in Australia, a great night out Melbourne is a must do when you come to Oz. With international flights being very competitive and generally cheaper than Sydney it is the perfect starting destination. To the west you have the Great Ocean Road which leads onto the outback. To the east you have Sydney and the whole East Coast, the most popular travel journey for backpackers.

Tour Guides

The tour guides have been in the backpacking travel industry for over 10 years combined. With their knowledge of Melbourne they will take you to where other travellers won’t find, and you can travel like a local. Not only that, they have a wealth of experience with helping people find work and know every part of Australia.

The Group

Welcome to Travel is specifically aimed at backpackers and gap year travellers aged between 18-35. That means you don’t have to worry about sitting next to the old judging couple while you just want to have fun and meet people just like you!
