TOP EXPERIENCES

World’s Biggest Sand Island

Fraser Island is our favourite place on the East Coast for so many reasons. Freshwater lakes, 4WD driving and an incredible rainforest are three of them.

Australia’s Best Beach

Our trip around the Whitsunday Islands doesn’t just include sailing and sleeping on a boat, it also includes a visit to Whitehaven Beach, the best beach in Australia and maybe the world!

Meet Friends for Life

Whether it’s the other legends that are in our travel group, other people you meet along the coast or even our tour guide, this place guarantees lasting friendships. 

First Time Memories

We want to help you do for the first time ever, amazing things like driving a 4WD on the beach, snorkelling on the Great Barrier Reef or sleeping on a boat, you’ll do them all in 11 days with us.

WHERE YOU'LL STAY

As we make our way up the East Coast, we’ll be staying in our favourite hostels in the different towns along the way. You’ll also spend a night camping on Fraser Island, a night sleeping on a boat on the Whitsunday Islands and one on an overnight bus.

ITINERARY

We’re not your average tour company. We care about inspiring you, helping you and supporting you. We’ll be here to help you with absolutely anything for the whole time that you’re in Australia, not just before your tour.

It is all about being part of our Welcome to Travel Family.

IS THIS TOUR FOR YOU?

We’re Australia experts so we’ve created an itinerary that is perfect for you, your timeframe and for ticking off your Australia bucket list. If you want to experience the best possible Mid-Semester ever, then yes this tour is for you.

We know it can be daunting to take that first step, but travelling can be life-changing. Take that step, we promise you’ll never look back.

FAQs

Yes, this is a great way for a solo traveller to see the East Coast and meet so many more people.

Yes, if you tell us who you’re travelling with then we’ll arrange that.

The $99 deposit is required to secure your booking. But don’t worry! Full payment is only required 21 days before your departure date, which gives you time to save money for it! 

However, if you make a booking within 21 days of your departure date, you will need to pay the full amount at the time of booking.

Our East Coast Tours are really unique and only run twice per year. You can change your tour dates as per our terms and conditions here, though if none of those dates suit you, then it’s best to cancel and arrange a customised tour with us. Get in touch with us!

The tour starts at Brisbane Airport. When future dates get announced, we will inform you of the best value for money flights.

Driving or getting the bus? No worries, meet us at the airport too. We’ll send the exact pickup details together with your confirmation.

A lot of the food is included on our tour and there are many destinations where you can bring your own drinks.

With this in mind, we’d say $300-$500AUD spending money is realistic, but it also depends on if you want to add on any activities.

You sure can! Your last day is a free day in Cairns which has plenty of activities on offer. We are experts in what to do and have options to add on everything from White Water Rafting to Skydiving! This can be organised during the booking process or with your guide whilst you are on tour.

This is a unique itinerary with limited spots. The maximum group size is 25 people.

There can be a few small changes depending on the tour that you depart on. The video was cut together for the Mid-Semester Tour which goes from Brisbane to Cairns, however the End of Semester goes from Cairns to Brisbane.

In Cairns we will be exploring the Atherton Tablelands, whereas the video shows parts of Cape Tribulation. The Whitsundays experience may change. We will either be sailing and staying on a boat or be travelling on a fast catamaran and staying at a resort.

This tour is for everyone aged 18-39 years old, who wants to explore as much of the East Coast of Australia in a short amount of time.

The itinerary works perfectly for students in Australia wanting to travel in their Mid-Semester break. We also have an option for the students looking to travel at the end of their semester too.

Of course! Just let us know in the booking process.

If you want advice on travelling the East Coast, but can’t travel on these dates, then email us on [email protected] and we’ll be happy to help you put together a dream customised itinerary that suits your needs.

A truly wonderful week, the welcome to travel group are fantastic and Clauds is a Don. If you're slightly nervous about solo traveling I would 100% recommend the package. They set up everything you need stress free and take you out on the most amazing trips. As you're grouped with other travelers you make new friends fast. I personally think I have made friends for life and have memories that will stay with me forever. Thank you Clauds and thank you welcome to travel.

What an amazing group of people and tour! Coming here on a working visa, I was a bit nervous and unsure of how to get started or what to do. After the welcome tour, I came away with a greater appreciation for the city of Melbourne, met new friends, and left with travel plans for the next two months. Our tour guide Claudia was outstanding, I couldn't think of a better person to run the tour. She was friendly, caring, and informative. Her and the rest of the team share an amazing passion for helping travellers and it shows. If you're looking for a great way to start your trip in Melbourne, I could not recommend Welcome to Travel enough!!

For anyone heading to Australia this tour is a great way to settle into city life and find your feet in Melbourne. Every day was packed with a different activity and each activity helped the group bond with each other. The surfing and penguin parade were definitely my top highlights. We’ve all become very good friends because of this tour. The guides and help from welcome to travel was amazing, if there was ever a problem or concern, they did everything they could to help us. I especially want to say a massive thank you to Billy who was our guide (don’t be afraid of the beard, he’s softy at heart) and made us feel like Melbourne was a home away from home! I would definitely recommend this tour to anyone thinking of traveling Australia, trust me you’ll have an amazing time!!

Did the 8 day tour with Welcome to Travel and it was AWESOME! Not only do you get to see wildlife up close, go surfing, wine tasting and exploring the city, you also feel so welcome and at ease with the guides. Legends all, they make sure everyone feels included and really take the time to get to know you. After the week you will know Australia and Melbourne better and you'll also have a better sense of how you're going to tackle the next phases of your trip. This is not just a tour, you join the Welcome to Travel family. ^^

“Ich würde diese Tour von vorne bis hinten nur empfehlen! Man lernt neue Leute kennen die innerhalb von einer Woche zur Familie werden, bekommt einen Einblick von Melbourne nicht nur von den typischen Touristenattraktionen sondern von versteckten Bars, ganz viel gutes Essen und andere Highlights der Stadt und wird von Anfang an unterstützt mit allem was man sonst noch so in Australien vor hat (das heißt daheim so wenig Arbeit bezüglich Planung wie möglich haha!). Das ganze Team ist immer extrem gut gelaunt und man fühlt sich von Anfang an willkommen. Außerdem bekommt man einen ersten Eindruck von der wunderschönen Natur Australiens, Momente die man nie vergisst und von allen anderen für beneidet wird! Also für jeden der schon in der erste Woche sagen will “Das wird die beste Zeit meines Lebens!” Bucht diese Tour!”

“En helt underbar introduktion till min Australien resa! God mat, otroligt fina vyer både i staden och utanför. Prova på att surfa, mata känguruer och träffa främlingar som snabbt blev vänner! En intensiv men också stressfri vecka. Welcome to travel teamet hjälper dig med allt, oavsett om du ska stanna en vecka eller ett helt år, om du vill arbeta eller bara resa runt blir du väl omhändertagen! Tack Billy för en otrolig vecka och för allt du hjälpt mig med! Tack teamet för all stöttning jag får när jag behöver det! Rekommenderar starkt Welcome to travel för alla som vill åka till Australien”

I cannot think of a better way that I could have spent my first week in Oz. As the week began, it became immediately obvious that this company is something the team have poured their hearts and souls into. Great activities, awesome guides, and really well thought out planning.
