General rule of thumb if you cook your own food etc , is 100AUD per person per day.

Clearly if your out on the p*** every night your going to spendmore.

Hope this helps :)

I 'd agree with that - I spent around £1200 per month back in 2004, which at the exchange rate then would have worked out around $3000. The rate is not so favourable against the sterling now though. I could have done it cheaper than that I think - that included some tours and a couple of internal flights.

Seems about right i'm off over there with about 8000 GBP , just take as much as you can save I would say.

I'm worked my bum off for best part of 10 months working 60 hour weeks....

Way I see it chance of a life time.....

Petrol is pretty cheap at the moment, unsure of the price because it depends what type of car you'll be driving.
