Adventure Queensland is the peak backpacking and independent travel industry body for the state. It was formed to enhance the commercial viability of its members through the provision of marketing support and representation to all levels of government.


Every region of the state has a representative on the board of Adventure Queensland that members can turn to for advice, as well as raise any issues.

While this is a state-wide organization, there is always a local contact close at hand. Your local contact is proud to volunteer their time to the Adventure Queensland committee. A list of the current committee can be found on our website.


As a member of Adventure Queensland, you will be invited to our bi-monthly meetings and networking events held in a different region every two months. This is a great way to hear what’s happening and network with the committee, local members and industry.


Adventure Queensland continues to work hard on various projects to benefit members. These include:

  • Work in Queensland – Adventure Queensland aims to improve the reputation of work for adventure travellers, backpackers and independent travellers in Queensland to achieve consistent high and ethical service standards. Adventure Queensland will drive work enquiries to our key recruitment sponsors.
  • Media – Adventure Queensland will work with media to leverage maximum exposure for our state and members.
  • Resources – Adventure Queensland will be there to assist our members in understanding and complying with new laws. e.g. Fire Regulation, ACCC Pricing Law Changes
  • Representation – Adventure Queensland will lobby Government to recognise the significance of the adventure travel/backpacker market and the importance of investing and devising policies accordingly
  • Promotions – University, language school and trade fair promotions, postcard/flyer and poster distribution. Past projects include attendance at trade fairs (including WYSTC, Backpacker Travel Expos Sydney & Melbourne, backpacker festivals, O weeks at Sydney Uni, UNSW to mention a few!)
