Cheap Accommodation Hotels Hostels in Australia

Hostels and hotels can be quite expensive in Australia. A single bed can be anywhere from AUD$20-35 per night. If you’re going to be staying in a town or city for any length of time, it might be a good idea to inquire into hostel work; making beds or working as a receptionist can often get you free lodging at youth hostels.

Couchsufing is popular in Australia. It‘s free, and a great way to meet people who live in the country. Woofing or other work-exchange programs are also great ideas for budget travelers who have time and would like to get to know a region better.

Camping is also possible in many areas of the countryside. If traveling between any population center, you’ll come across many smaller towns and rural areas with both sanctioned, paid camping areas and also terrific locations for covertly setting up a tent or tarp for a night or a number of days.
