Hi, my name is Jake, the founder of Backing Oz. Years ago, after becoming interested in travelling and working in Australia, I spent a considerable amount of time researching the right steps to take for planning a trip down under. Unfortunately, finding information that actually helped me on my trip was time-consuming due to the information being spread out across multiple websites. After finishing my journey in Oz I realized that the information I learned would be worth sharing with others looking to take on the same journey.

That was when I decided to set up Backpacking Oz as a one stop shop for everything to know when travelling to Australia. Whether you are trying to decide which cities to visit, the best tips for getting hired, how to find farm work or more, we have it covered here at BackpackingOz.com!
