Tourism Investigation on backpacking

Hi, my name is Emma Ialeggio from Mary MacKillop College in Adelaide, South Australia. As part of my Stage 2 Tourism assignment I am currently investigating the question "Does backpacking in Australia provide an authentic host destination experience?"
If possible can you please answer the questions  below, as I believe the information you provide will be highly beneficial for my studies.
-          What motivated you to travel to Australia?
-          What were you interested in experiencing whilst travelling around Australia?
-          How long did you travel within Australia for and where? E.g. 2 months, Adelaide. 1 month, Melbourne
-          What were your positive experiences of backpacking around Australia?
-          Was the accommodation of a good standard?
-          Was your planning to travel to Australia a straight forward process? E.g. visa application (if required)
-          Have you experienced any negatives in backpacking around Australia?
-          Did you have to partake in a rural placement for your stay?
-          Did you feel that you were provided with a more ‘authentic’ experience by backpacking then the standard form of travel?
-          Would you recommend backpacking around Australia to others?
