I am 18 years old and this coming february i am leaving for Australia. I am going with my friend and we are willing to stay in hostels and such but we also do want to be able to go out and have fun. I would like to travel there until may (which would be 4 months). I was wondering if anyone had any special tips or any idea of how much money i am going to need?... thanks:)

Hi Hanna12,

I'm off to Oz in September with a mate travelling for 3 months. We are going to SE asia for 3/4 months 1st and taking £5,000 (and maybe £2k credit card ;). Although we do plan to work when in Oz.
When we are over there, we are probably going to get a tent and try to save a bit of money for a while (really slumming it!).
Then when we get sorted with a job, rent somewhere or stay in hostels etc.

We also are looking to go out and have fun at every opportunity but I think it can be quite expensive out there, especially after living off $5 - $10 a day in Asia.

You have loads of time to save so I would say get as much as you can saved up, you will have an amazing time. If your not planning to work I would guess at maybe £4k - £8k, a bit vague I know but it really depends on the individual :)

Good Luck

What's your rough planned itinerary in oz? How much do you plan to trvel from one place to another? And what sort of things do you want to do whilst here in oz? Allt hese things will factor into how much money you'll need for 4 months...
