Backpacker Job Board headquarters are located in Melbourne, VIC.
Fast-forward to today and Backpacker Job Board is owned by Five Bees Media Pty Ltd (ABN: 70 631 879 546). The site has over 200,000 active employers and 500,000 registered backpackers. We believe it to be Australia's largest job site dedicated to backpackers.
Backpacker Job Board helps connect backpackers and employers in a wide range of sectors from agriculture, construction, hospitality, sales and marketing. Furthermore, the site also benefits small businesses, hobby farms and busy families with our cultural help exchange opportunities, au-pair jobs and voluntary sector.
Backpacker Job Board has a commitment to kindness and inclusivity. As such, our carefully curated Code of Conduct is something we are especially proud of.
In 2015, we launched our New Zealand sister site, Backpacker Job Board: NZ.
In 2019, Backpacker Job Board was nominated for an award in the Innovation category at the Adventure Tourism Awards.
