Your excitement levels will go through the roof as you think about the possibilities and excitement that await you in this vibrant city!

To help you get over the dreaded jet lag we have organized a fantastic three-night arrival pack, where we set you up to get ready to find work and it will help you to get settled in straight away at one of the coolest hostels in Sydney, right in the heart of the backpacker district, think comfy beds, wild nights out with new friends and all the essentials you need, such as internet access and daily breakfast .

: DAY FOUR (WEDNESDAY)

By now jetlag should be a distant memory, but after three action-packed days and nights in Sydney you´ll probably be glad to have a break from the big city lights and lie on a gorgeous beach instead. Well, you can. Its up to you now. When to jump on that bus leaving Sydney.

Most of our travellers travel alone, and are a bit anxious, so lets explain how this trip works:

We get it; you are nervous! But with your first 3 nights in Sydney arranged,including lots of activities, and a backpacker bus pass along the east coast including stop offs in the best places plus including quite a few nights for you… you will wonder why you were nervous. By this time you will have already made friends for life, it´s easy!

Remember 85% on the trip backpacks solo, so everyone is up for making new friends, but also everyone picks their own pace. After a few amazing days in Sydney, you get on the flexible backpacker bus and you can hop on and hop off where ever you like. People tend to travel together for a few days or weeks and then meet others again. As other travellers might have 6 weeks and you might be thinking of travel and work in Australia for 5 months. That is the deal with backpacking. It´s about meeting people, doing amazing stuff together and move on… but have memories for life!

Frequently Asked Questions



  • Yes this trip starts on a Sunday, every 1st and 3rd sunday of the month. This is the day you arrive in Sydney.


  • Lots of Xtreme Gappers combine this trip with working in Australia. Some even do the sailing course so they can work on a sailing boat on the Whitsundays straight after. A job is 89% guaranteed and helps you save up for some extra cash before you continue your trip again!


  • “The minimum amount of time you need to complete the route  is 5 weeks, which is ideal if you only have a short amount of time before college or university, but you can take up to six months if you want to make it more of a gap year travel a bit, work a bit, etc.

    One thing to remember is that drives are very long, Australia is enormous and the bus might not go every day, so double check the schedules.

    If time is really tight you can FastTrack your journey by using the Greyhound (your Oz experience pass is interchangeable with this).


  • WILL THERE ALWAYS BE OTHERS ON THE TOUR?

    Yes, there will, although you may not be travelling with exactly the same people that the entire duration of the journey. You start off with your 3 nights stay in Sydney. There are normally between 20 and 40 young travellers arriving in the hostel weekly. all young travellers probably on their first big trip alone. Also you have the travel desk and the job support there to help you out. on the surf trip. From then on you have 1 party night and accommodation in Byron Bay. In

    The East coast of Australia is very social, so don’t worry you will make loads of new friends guaranteed.


  • Your first 3 nights accommodation are already arranged for you, after Sydney you are able to pre-book further accommodation or just see how you go. We recommend you book yourself in to the surf and stay in Byron Bay before you leave on the bus from Sydney to Byron Bay. Other than that, play it by ear because you will talk to others, get tips, read cool stuff, find deals etc on route.


  • No, 14 nights accommodation are included but you will need to book extra.


  • There is no need to take a lot of cash as there are ATM’s everywhere we stop. Payments can be done in cash or by card. during your arrival package assistance can be given the you to set up a bank account as well so you might want to transfer money into an Australian bank to save on international bank fees.

    The amount of money you need depends on how long you go and if you wish to go out a lot etc.


  • Here we have listed some costs (prices are an indication and may vary due to change in currency rates).

    Dorm accommodation will cost about £10 to £15.

    Meals are about £5 to £15, but you always have the possibility to cook in the big kitchens of the hostels. This is also a fun way to get to know other people. You will be cooking side to side, most people make spaghetti ?

    Drinks: a beer will be £2 and wine will be about £3 to £5. But there are always lots of backpacker bars and happy hours. We know what you like.

    Money for extra activities along the way. Out of experience we know it is better to book all you definitely want to do up front, because otherwise you spend it on drinks and you will fail to be able to do all the exiting stuff.
