THE 12TH GOLDEN BACKPACK AWARDS

They say imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, but despite many trying, the Golden Backpack Awards still remains the longest running awards programme in the Youth and Adventure travel market across Australia and New Zealand.

BEST OF THE BEST

This heritage and market presence provides winners of our awards with credibility and ongoing brand value and validation. The prestige of a golden backpack award elevates businesses above the competition.
