Who Are Backyard Roadies?

The Team Behind It

Jason is a born and bred Kiwi and a master in the art of a ‘road trip’. The idea to bring Backyard Roadies to life started when Jason decided to create an experience for people who are looking to travel, discover new places, and were in need of a holiday. He wanted them to learn how to connect with others, connect with the land, and understand more about our culture and history. The core idea is to help people learn more about themselves and to do things out of their comfort zone. He and his experienced crew will be like your mates on the trip, taking care of everything from start to finish while also having a blast.
