Hi guys,

We are trying to work out a budget for traveling around aus for 12 months, the budget would exclude flights and buying a campervan.

We are going to fly into brisbane and stay with family for a few weeks/months then travel by camper van up the coast then inland then back to brisbane, stopping when like somewhere. We would be cooking for ourselves on the road, no hotels.

Any ideas on a rough budget?
Has anyone done this kind of thing before?

With Chill Regards

Hi Annie,

Just see your post and thought I would say hello unfortunately I dont have the answers to your questions however I also am travelling to Brisbane alone to stay with friends for a little while and then travelling around hope to meet some nice people along the way. When are you arriving in Oz ? I leave 5th July so only a few more weeks left for me excited and nervous ! But cant wait to get there now...... I am flying from Heathrow....

Look forward to hearing from you,

Jemma :-)

I spent about 900 Euros a month travelling by Greyhound from Sydney to Cairns and paying for hostels, food and a bunch of sailing and snorkeling trips so I guess that would probably be about what you'll be looking at including petrol and everything, maybe a little less. Obviously if you find work there and get to stay in cheap camp grounds or something for a while, that'll really bring your cost down.
