Her daughter Mia Ayliffe-Chung, 20, was murdered last August while undertaking the rural work required to get a one-year extension to her 417 visa.
Ms Ayliffe has spent the past few months gathering stories from backpackers who have travelled to Australia and experienced the "dark side" of an industry that is crucial to the agricultural sector.
Although many backpackers have enjoyable, positive experiences on the 88-day farm work scheme, many others complain of financial, sexual and psychological abuse.
Ms Ayliffe, an English teacher from Derbyshire in the UK, has heard claims of rent rip-offs, sexual assault and false promises of work.
Four of the backpackers who have been in touch with her shared their stories with Australian Story.
