Hi all,

I'm looking to travel to Australia next year and travel, work and meet new people. I need advice on how much money I would need, where are the best places to relax, party and places with the best scenery!

Which guide book are you using?

Hi Jen,

Welcome to Travellerspoint!

Start with a basic budget of $85/day and work out from there what you would need. That guide includes hostel dorms and cooking your own food so work out what travel style you prefer and add on as appropriate. :)

There are a ton of possible answers to your other questions depending on your personal preferences, time of year, budget, etc but you might like to check out the Australia gallery for scenery inspiration and also some of the previous suggestions in the forum. Oh and I also recommend the Gold Coast

Hi Jen,

On BBC the last few weeks there has been a series of Coast going around Australia, if you haven't seen them I recommend giving them a watch. They should give you ideas for a few places that you would like to go to.

Ah I see. Well without any consideration for budget and in the interests of pure destination ideals, I would suggest Broome, Fraser Island, the Whitsundays, the Kimberley and the Yarra Valley. More info on these here.

Good luck with your research!
