Hello TPers!
I`m sure this have been discussed several times, but I cant seem to find a tread. (Quite new at this)
I am planning a trip to Australia and New Zealand, and Im wondering how much I should budget for each month. I want to travel around a bit by bus or train, plan to take surflessons, diving.... plus alot of the things people tend to do when they travel Oz & NZ. Any ideas and/or suggestions would by highly appreciated!

Hi, I have been travelling for almost 5mths in Oz now and spent approx $60/day including accom/food/activities. You could get by with much less say $40 but it depends how much activities you do and how much you drink.
My budget is based on lots of activities but only the odd piss up.
Dorms cost approx $15-25 depending on where you are in oz (cities are more expensive). A meal at a food court is about $6-10 but more at resturants. And most tours cost roughly $100/day.
Hope this helps.

Hi! I have just gotten back from travelling oz for 3 months and managed to spend a total of £1000 a month, this was comfortably on a budget. I would recommend you do the same I had an amazing experience out there on it, so doesn't matter how much I spent!
