Why are Whitsundays backpacker trips popular?
Trips that are designed for the backpacker community are enjoyable for so many reasons. They are a great way to see the Whitsundays and enjoy all the beauty that this part of Australia has to offer plus so much more!
They are fun and entertaining
Backpacker trips are enjoyable for so many reasons; you are sure to have a friendly, entertaining crew onboard, fellow passengers to keep you company and a jam-packed itinerary which is fun both on and off the vessel. Many trips also offer special activities such as scuba diving, waterslide, a hot tub or standup paddle boards!
They are budget-friendly
The backpacker trips are a popular choice with so many worldly travellers having to stick to a budget, but don’t want to miss out on the experience. These trips have a great menu (see the product page), comfortable accommodation options and a great atmosphere onboard without breaking the bank.
They are sociable
With between 20-50 passengers on each boat, depending on the tour, backpacker trips are the perfect opportunity to meet like-minded travellers from around the world. Most travellers onboard are aged between 18-35 so you will certainly have plenty in common and will enjoy getting to know each other with a social drink each evening! They make for a really great place to make new friends.
They take you to the best places
Though the trip’s itinerary isn’t set in stone (due to tides and weather conditions), your crew will certainly do their best to get you to the best locations around the Whitsundays; including Whitehaven Beach for a few hours, a bushwalk to Hill Inlet Lookout as well as a number of different snorkelling sites throughout the Whitsundays.
A once-in-a-lifetime experience
Any trip in the Whitsundays is a memorable one, especially on an overnight trip which gives you the chance to have hands on experience sailing the vessel, or just simply relax on the deck and enjoy the wind in your hair! The Whitsundays is a sailing mecca, so why not have a trip of a lifetime!
