Hi Leah!
Iv been backpacking around Australia for nearly 2 years, go home next week...boo hoo!! Anyway i guess it depends where you planning on going? Some places are a hell of alot more expensive. I spent soo much money in Cairns because theres s much to do, the reef, skydiving, rafting etc . I only came out here with a few grand and i think if you stay in hostels (even 4 bed dorms) and take full advantage of backpacker meal deals ul be fine and have a blast!! youl have about $4000 which is a lot!! Have a great time! Charlotte
