    Awesome guide! It sounds like once you get to Australia there are a lot of affordable things to do. For us the expensive part is getting there! But we will someday!

      Indeed, Elizabeth- getting there is quite costly!

    These are wonderful tips, thanks! We just came back from Australia not that long ago, and it definitely seemed quite expensive. Now we know some tricks for the next visit!

    what is still stopping me to visit Australia is certainly the 24 hours of flight from Italy, not the budget! 🙂

      I know, Sofia- my flight took roughly the same time (I flew from Rome).

    Great informative post! Would love to travel around Australia someday but the costs always put me off. Great to know it can still be done in a budget, thanks for sharing.

    I would love to make it to Australia! I’ve only visited briefly, when a layover flight was delayed. It was enough to get out to a couple bars and decide that we definitely want to return some day!

    Wow! Homeshare, caravan, budget hotels – you have listed it all – this is a very helpful and detailed guide. I am saving this post for future as I do want to visit the Sydney Opera House, the Great Barrier Reef, the vast interior desert wilderness called the Outback. My kids would love to see the kangaroos and duck-billed platypuses 🙂

    Good tips for the first time visit to Aus! I did appreciate that the phone plans seemed to last a long time there and for just 20 Aussie dollars… I didn’t think that was half bad.

    This is extremely good and informative! Well done! First, who thinks they can explore a country in 3 weeks!? You can’t even explore NYC in 3 weeks! Smh. I never knew alcohol was that expensive. I guess it’s great for those looking to quit. I’ve been to Oz as a teen on a school trip so didn’t know the costs but I can imagine activities cost a lot cos we did white-water rafting and quad-biking.

      Indeed, Kemi but apparently some people out there do 🙂 And yes, unfortunately, alcohol is quite expensive in Australia, making it the perfect country to quit drinking 🙂

    As Australia is an expensive country, it is good you pointed out some budget-friendly tips to save money while traveling. Staying in hostels and Caravan parks looks nice and taking public transport in city.

    The idea of traveling Australia seems wonderful! We used to have visitors from our sister school there when I was still teaching in Jakarta and it seems like a great place to visit!
