Hi, Im going to Oz on my own in July for 6 weeks, travelling into sydney and out of cairns. Im going to buy either an Oz Experience or Greyhound bus pass before I go and will stay in hostels etc. Im planning on budgeting about £200 a week which is around 480 oz dollars, does anyone think this is not enough to cover food, beer etc for a week? Any opinions would be helpful, cheers.

It depends: I spent 3 months in oz and did it on an average of £300 per week; that included a couple of cheapish internal flights and some organised tours, and it didn't leave much left for beer! If you cook in hostels most of the time and don't plan on many tours you should be ok.
