Yes, I would – despite all the risk and all the trouble and stress I had with the car I would do it again. The freedom and possibilities you got with the car are worth far more then the risk, and if everything runs smoothly, you can even save a lot of money when you buy a car.
In this Blog, I’m going to discuss the expenses in Australia, what my daily average is and for what I spend the most money. Of course, it will be different for everybody but if you have a similar travel style as I do you can orientate yourself on this Blog to budget your next Australia travels.
Out of money and time aspects, I decided with my best friend and two other friends to book a one-day trip to Fraser Island from Noosa with the Adventure Fraser Island Tour group – It turned out to be a quite expensive fail.
In here you can find the 7 best hiking places on the east coast of Australia. From the blue Mountains over the Grampians you should do them all.
While I was answering the question of how much I spend per day in each country – I’ll tell you in this post on what I spend the money to travel around the world, especially in Asia. Sometimes it is exciting on how these expenses vary from country to country. And like this, it’s possible to find out what you spent most of the money and find ways to reduce these costs.
This might be one of the unpopular opinions, but I think it’s time that I say it out loud: Australia is so much overrated.
Before you start writing your hate comments just read on, listen to my arguments, and if you haven’t been to Asia before, go there. You’ll see that every one of the following arguments come true for yourself.
Melbourne vs. Sydney which city is better to visit? The two biggest cities in Australia have so many simultaneities but also as many differences it’s hard to say which one is better. However, as a tourist, I have one favorite city – Sydney. If I had to choose a place to live and work, I would have a hard time to decide but for visiting Sydney is by far my favorite.
Sydney is a city full of activities and things to do. I spent a total of 5 nights there, and I found it to be the right amount of time. Sydney is a great city, and a lot of different activities can be done there but most of them are expensive and not really for a Backpackers budget. In my List of things to do in Sydney, most are for free. Only the walking tours operate on a tipping system, however that’s not much. So here are my 6 things to do in Sydney on a tight budget.
We all know that Australia is one of the most developed countries in the world and one thing they are even ahead of 99 % of European countries are public services. Public toilets, public showers, and drinking water all for free. I’m so surprised what some small things have for an effect and what you can find here everywhere. As a result, I feel even safer, and as a Backpacker, it helps a lot. In some cases, it protects the environment, and in other instances, it protects your health, and it helps to save some money.
The Great Ocean Road is a 300 km long road mostly on the edge of the ocean. The views are stunning, the beaches are beautiful, and nature is great. My brother visited me, and we did the great ocean road starting from Melbourne and stopped the third evening in Portland. Here is what you can expect from this road and what you should consider before you leave.
