Why do we love this

This trip is created and hosted by two people who backpacked Australia before making Melbourne home, therefore they have first-hand experience of what backpackers arriving in Australia need.

It is totally customised and created just for you, they want to use their first-hand experience to make your first week in Australia easy and fun!



Enjoy a unique 8-day introduction to life in Australia and tick off some must do Aussie experiences! From feeding kangaroos to learning to surf, Welcome to Travel have created a one of a kind trip to kick off your Australian adventure!

Yes! There are both tourist and working holiday visas available and which you pick would depend on where you’re from, how long you’re staying in Australia and what your plans are for your visit. 

We recommend organising this as soon as possible. The application can be completed through your travel agent, or directly through the Australian Government website.

We would always recommend checking Australian Government website for any specific enquiries.

If you’re travelling as a tourist for a few weeks you don’t, a pre-loaded travel cash card would suffice. If you’re here for a prolonged period then it’s highly recommended.

Not only will you save a lot on exchange/transaction fees but employers will only pay wages into an Australian account. It’s also an extremely easy process that we will coordinate. Once you’ve transferred your budget from your home account to your Australian account, you’re ready to go.

That’s up to you! Everyone travels differently and will have different plans. Your plan may well change in the Welcome to Melbourne week after meeting some new friends. We’re there for advice all week and whether it’s work or travel you’re looking to organise after, we’re able to help with both. It’s totally up to you, #thisisyourweek.

With our help, that’s how! As part of your Welcome to Melbourne package, you will receive our two-part employment guide. One part is about the tips and advice on finding a job, and the second part is exclusive access to our portfolio of employers in several sectors such as hospitality, construction, sales and marketing and much more.

Medicare is Australia’s subsidised health system and as part of reciprocal agreement between the two countries, only residents of the UK are eligible to have Medicare. We will help you with this set up on day two of Welcome to Melbourne. 

Expect the best experience ever! As long as you’re polite and friendly then you’ll be fine. To get the best out of your experience we recommend talking to people in your dorm as soon as possible. Travel broadens the mind and that is mainly because of people you meet. Listen to where they’ve been, what they’ve loved, what they recommend, their funniest stories, all of it! This will be you in a few months!

Sure from time to time you may have a cliché guitar player, a snorer or a 6 am deodorant sprayer (you’ll know what I mean soon!) but that’s all part of travelling and they’ll form your stories and travel experiences!

All dorms have lockers, but you will need to buy a small padlock to use them.

We aim to try and get everyone on Welcome To Melbourne in the same dorm, but if you have any special requests such as, you want to be in an all female dorm or you want to upgrade to your own room. Then will be able to assist you.
