Why do we love this

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



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. It's totally customised and created just for you, these guys use their first-hand experience making your first week in Australia easy and fun!


This will be your arrival day with all the action starting on Monday morning. This means you need to be in Melbourne for the Sunday night. Landing a few days before? No worries! Your airport pickup is included for any day before the tour and we can organise any required extra nights at the YHA accommodation. You'll also get an extra nights accomodation for before or after your tour FREE when you book with Backpacker Deals. 


Our morning meet and greet will introduce you to your new family and learn why the next 8 days will form the best week of your life. We’ll take you on a walking tour around Melbourne and show you the very best of this fascinating & diverse city. We'll end the day with a group Welcome Meal (dinner included) at one of Australia's most iconic settings, on the banks of the Yarra River.

INCLUDED: Dinner and drink.



Melbourne is home to the Southern Hemisphere’s biggest open-air market and it really is a treat for the senses! After haggling a bargain and exploring the wonders of Queen Victoria Market’s many stalls, we'll spend the afternoon in the most Melbourne way possible, eating and drinking. Melbourne has more food establishments than anywhere else in the world so we thought the best way to showcase that was to create an exclusive food tour just for you… SO WE DID!

INCLUDED: Snacks+Tasters, Dinner and 2 drinks.



Sure we want you to experience the city but we also want you to see its beautiful surrounds. Mornington Peninsula and Phillip Island are stunning and two of the most incredible yet untouched spots in Australia. Over 2 days tick off some Australian must dos as you feed KANGAROOS, learn to SURF, chill at the BEACH, hang with KOALAS, spot 500 tiny PENGUINS and try the finest WINE Australia has to offer. 

Think of why you came to Australia and we include it all in these two days! Something that’s pretty cool is this tour doesn't normally exist and has been created just for YOU making it the perfect way to experience all of these things, with your Welcome to Travel family.

INCLUDED: 1 lunch and also wine at the vineyard.

*In winter surfing will be replaced by kayaking/mountain biking (depending on weather)



Melbourne has many celebrated suburbs and St Kilda is as famous as they get. We’ll take the morning to stroll this quaint beach suburb taking in its iconic promenade, botanical gardens, alfresco cafes and famous landmarks. The afternoon will be spent lazing on the beach, paddle boarding (included!).
*In winter the beach will be replaced with Eureka Skydeck.



Saturday morning is the perfect time to look at organising everything you will need after that first week. We’ll look at all you need from your bank account to how tax works to helping you get a job or where you’re travelling next! We have backpacked Australia and been here a long time meaning we know all the hot spots and we'll be able to help you plan the rest of your adventure. As we wrap that up, we’ll crack open the beers before the big Saturday night bar crawl!

INCLUDED: 4 drinks and pizza



And as if like that, it’s nearly over! We're not silly and we know there could be some sore heads Sunday morning, so we’ll be around all day to help with any questions on ‘what next?’ and then what better way to spend a Sunday afternoon than lazing on a rooftop overlooking the city with your new travel family? We’ll crank up the BBQ, hand out the beers and soak up the skyline as we talk about memories made over the best week of your life.

INCLUDED: Dinner and drink.

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.
