If any of you Beats Travellers are heading down under. This post is for you.
From beautiful beaches, peaceful cities and never-ending sunshine, Australia is still one of the most travelled-to-destinations on the planet because of its beautiful sites to visit. Finding free or cheap things to do in sydney with attractions like the harbour bridge or skydiving over the beach make it harder for travels to pack up and leave on the last day of your vacation. However, with proper budgeting, any nomad can stay a little longer! So here is seven money-saving tips to help you travel on a budget in Australia.
Hostels are reasonable compared to hotels, resorts and rental homes. Not only are you saving cash (some hostel beds are literally just a couple of dollars per night), but you’re getting the authentic backpacker atmosphere, and memories to last a lifetime.
And if you’re feeling a little more adventurous, you could even try camping. This will save you some serious money.
Cook your own food before you’re off adventuring for the day
Bring some home cooked food or enjoy the free public BBQ facilities at parks. To enjoy the facilities at the park, just bring some meat and veggies and start grilling! It may not be fancy but it helps you safe!
Bring out the Booze
Get your share of booze at bottle-o shop (liquor store). The alcohol at the bottle-o shop is reasonable than the ones at bars.
Here’s a suggestion: Goon is a common choice for budget drinkers. It is wine packaged in a box. Its cheap and does you the same justice as any other alcoholic drinks.
Make your way on the Greyhound Bus
The Greyhound Bus is one of the cheapest ways to travel in Australia. Get a traveller pass for $500, which allows you to hop on and off the bus as many times as you like. This is a great way to see Australia’s amazing scenery without spending loads on individual journeys.
Venture-off on a Campervan
If you travelling alone in a group, then here’s something for you: get yourself a campervan to drive, relax and enjoy the beauty of Australia. You can buy a campervan in Cairns and drive all the way down to Melbourne.
Driving won’t be as cheap as flying directly but you can stop wherever you want. Plus, if your campervan is big enough, it can double up as accommodation.
Seek refuge in Nature
Tourist traps can be an absolute nightmare for your wallet so try enjoying some mother nature. Experience the Botanical Gardens in Melbourne and Brisbane and beautiful beaches for free! You can hike through Sydney’s Blue Mountains or Royal National Park without having to spend a single cent!
Collect memories instead of material things
If you’re tired of being outside or want a dose of culture, try taking a relaxing stroll in the Museums and Galleries for free. The Art Gallery of New South Wales in Sydney and the National Gallery of Victoria in Melbourne are good places to start!
