I'm A Backpacker... Get Me In Here!

What is the Competition?

How would you like to win a free trip to Australia, stay at a luxury hotel and get up to wild adventures in a sub-tropical jungle? Celebrities may want to get out of there, but we know backpackers want to get in.

And now gapyear.com has teamed up with Gold Coast Tourism to create an awesome competition. Six lucky winners will have the experience of a lifetime on Australia's Gold Coast.

The six victorious entrants will be flown from the UK courtesy of Qantas. Once in Australia, they’ll spend their first night at the famous Palazzo Versace hotel where the ITV celebrities stay when not in the jungle, and get to hang out on the famous surfing beaches of Australia’s Gold Coast.

But it’s not all holiday. The lucky six will also face their own bush tucker trials. The ultimate winner, the Backpacker King or Queen of the Jungle, will walk away with a grand mystery prize.  

Following your stay in the jungle you will have the opportunity to explore the fabulous Gold Coast
