Australia is the dream location for many singletons and families alike. Whether you want to spend your first time on a surfboard on Bondi Beach, or you just can’t wait to enjoy some of that infamous Aussie sunshine, traveling across the globe can be quite an expensive venture. If you want to have the trip of a lifetime, but without spending an outrageous amount of money, there are still some money-saving precautions you can take.
If you have always avoided camping due to the threat of rainy weather, then be sure to go camping in Australia during its summer months. This is a great opportunity to enjoy its balmy evenings and listen to the crickets chirping underneath the starry sky. Finding a caravan park in Adelaide, for example, might give the ultimate freedom and affordable accommodation you have been looking for.
Enjoy the Beaches
While you’re in Australia, you would be a fool not to make the most of its most famous beaches. This is also a perfect opportunity to learn how to surf and maybe even spend some time in the green room. If you have little ones in tow, you may want to just stick to body-boarding and stay in the shallows. Nonetheless, spending your days playing out in the surf is one of the most cost-effective ways to enjoy Australia. If you fancy spending a little more, then you might want to splash out on a few days out with a surfing school.
Be a Complete Tourist
Of course, in a very real sense, you are a tourist. This just means you should do everything a stereotypical tourist would do: visit museums, spend days at the galleries and go on official hikes and walks. The reason it benefits you to behave like your average touristing Joe is that most Australian exhibits are free of charge. You will get to soak up all of the culture and history that this country has to offer, and without having to shell out every time you want to see something new.
There’s nothing wrong with completely indulging in Australian stereotypes, particularly when you have days out to places such as Kangaroo Island. This is just outside of Adelaide, which makes it a great day trip if you fancy venturing outside of the city. You will, of course, see some of Australia’s most famous native wildlife, and you will also be treated to some pretty spectacular beaches, such as Emu Bay. This island is full of fun names and plenty to do — partially if you like spending your days in the outdoors.
Australia is the perfect destination for those who want free exhibits, plenty of sun and exotic wildlife to look at. It has everything you could possibly want from a country that is so famous for its stereotypes: it has great places to surf, an island full of kangaroos and great places to stay that will have you spending time on nature’s doorstep.
