Happy Travels is 20 Years Old!

We’re not sure if you heard yet, but last Friday marked the twentieth anniversary of Happy Travels!

As we continue celebrating our twentieth birthday we have been reflecting on the fact that have now been helping backpackers dreams come true for over two decades.

Even though we’re no longer teenagers we’re still learning and we love teaching you about all of the incredible destinations that we love most.

Over the years we have grown into 32 stores covering Australia and New Zealand and have helped countless amounts of travellers achieve experiences of a lifetime!

As celebrate our 20th birthday here are some crazy figures from the last year for you guys to check out!


We have helped 9,855 0f our new friends plan trips around New Zealand.

We have helped 4,380 independent travellers find a great deal on camper van rentals.

We have helped 20,821 backpackers explore the world heritage site Fraser Island.

We have helped 21,321 legends get a taste of the beauty of the Whitsundays.

We have helped 52,016 international visitors snorkel at the great barrier reef.

We have helped 4903 thrill seekers jump out of perfectly good airplanes.


What do those numbers add up to? The best travel agency for backpackers in Australia.


Whenever people come into one of our stores whether it’s to book East Coast packages or just to find the best parties in town you’ll always see a happy face.
