Backpackers and Youth hostels


Base-roof-jacuzi.jpgBackpacker hostels are becoming more common, modern and comfortable accommodation in Australia. They are generally the first choice for those living in Australia on a tight budget: count around 25-35 AUD per nightin the dormitory, and upwards of $70 AUD for a double bedroom. Backpackers attract great numbers of Working Holiday Visa and gap year travellers, with their on-site Job Centre.Make sure you book several days in advance to ensure availability. In high season and during school holidays, Christmas and New Year, it’s worth booking several months in advance. Do note that prices can easily double in tourist regions during high season.

Camping in Australia


Camping is certainly the most economical solution as far as accommodation in Australia is concerned, and you should generally budget for around $10 AUD per night for a campervan, even less if you are pitching a tent. Wherever you are, campsites today are very well equipped (bathroom, kitchen and sometimes even a swimming pool) and generally well maintained. It’s often possible for those camping in Australia to rent a cabin or a mobile-home onsite too. Since campsites are generally located outside town, it’s best if you have your own means of transport if you opt for camping Australia (a campervan is ideal). To reserve a pitch at a campsite, you should contact the local Tourist Office, Conservation Department or Forest Rangers. Car and camper van hire companies generally provide a specialised guide with addresses and contact details of campsites nationally (or sites within the state).
