Backpacker Campervans Calls Byron Bay Home With Its New Branch

Melbourne, Australia (PressExposure) September 20, 2009 -- Australia's backpacking capital is now home to the nation's premier backpacking campervan rental company.

Backpacker Campervans [] has opened a rental location in Australia's backpacking hub - the sensational Ballina/Byron Bay area on the far north coast of New South Wales.

There's no better place for Backpacker to open a new branch. The company's carefree values resonate with the picturesque holiday destination, a popular drawcard for young travellers searching for fun and sun.

The Ballina area boasts some of the most stunning surfing beaches and scenic headlands on the east coast of Australia. The area is one of Australia's most iconic destinations, attracting more than 1.5 million* visitors each year. It's renowned for its natural beauty, alternative culture and a buzz of its own, attracting people from the four corners of the globe and from all walks of life.

The Ballina/Byron region is one of the best places to go if you want to experience a campervan holiday, where you won't blow your budget or compromise on comfort. The Backpacker branch will feature Backpacker's large and diverse fleet of vehicles, which allow you to get out there and do as much as you can for as little as you like.

Backpacker Marketing Manager Kate Meldrum said Backpacker is thrilled to be opening its new branch in the nation's backpacking heart. "This is the ideal location for Backpacker Campervans," Kate said. "The Backpacker brand fits perfectly with the young surfing culture of the Ballina/Byron Bay area. The region is famous for its waves, whale watching and wildlife. It offers great fishing, swimming, snorkelling, sailing and hang-gliding. It's the perfect destination to have fun or simply slow down - and now it's also the home of Backpacker Campervans."

Backpacker has teamed up with locals Allyson and William Small, operators of Ballina Airport Car Storage and Security Parking.
