So I am travelling to Australia in the middle if December and leaving in the middle of January.
Just wondering how much money (€ or aud $) I would need for the month. And maybe per day??
I plan to stay at the cheapest hostels in dorm rooms, travel around and eat and drink on the cheap side.
I have flights and Xmas week and new year accommodation paid for but not the other two weeks as I don't know where I will be!
If anyone has any ideas, would love to hear them.
Would also like to do some attractions like the barrier reef and Whitsundays..
Thanks in advance!!
I generally say an average of AUD $75/day for staying in dorm rooms in decent quality hostels, buying supermarket food to cook your own meals, and travelling on once a week by public transport.
I figure since you'll only be there for a month, you'll want to see more than 4 places, so will travel around more. Probably also will want to do a couple of activities. To be on the safe side, I'd increase that average daily budget to AUD $100 (also because you're going at the very peak of high season, when things will simply be more expensive). So AUD $3000 (or ~€2000) should be a good baseline. Just watch those paid activities - it's trivial to spend much more money every day without feeling that you're splurging.
Thanks, €2000 is what I was thinking, I'm hoping not to go over it though.
Any ideas to keep my budget down would be a great help!
