How much roughly for 3 weeks in Australia PP
I fancy organising a trip to Australia for me and my wife next year, so how much per person is roughly needed for 3 weeks.

Ideas on best places etc welcome

Re: How much roughly for 3 weeks in Australia PP
I've just come k from a three month trip to Oz. I found the east coast, north of Sydney, to have slightly more reasonable prices than the other areas we went to but the bottom line is, with the current exchange rate, it's a bloody expensive place. I'm hoping to go back in September and Singapore Airlines have return flights for under £700.

It's a great country and if I wasn't too old I'd move there in a flash.

Roughly it should not cost more than a couple of kangaroos three Koalas and 5 baby opossums.

The current rate is $1.64 to the £ so take lots of ££££.
Not sure I can ever go home at that rate.
Thanks Brexit

It's what you make of it though really. I don't have to leave NZ to have a comfortable life - reasonable salary, good job, nice house, good lifestyle etc.

I accept that it's not the same for youngsters, who have almost no chance of ever buying a house here in Auckland, but then, the same applies to Sydney.

Much as I love Manly Ted, I spent the best part of 10 years living on Bondi beach. So I'm a Bondi lad at heart! If it wasn't for the fact that I missed my beloved West Ham (Oh, and the fact that I was arrested on Bondi beach and deported!), I'd still be there.

Deported I tell ya! I thought we were meant to be deported the other way!

Mallard - I remember the 3 dollars to the pound! Them's were the days!

Ted - I hope to be there in late January next year. My son lives, and surfs, Manly beach! Lucky bugger. Maybe meet up for a drink?

Re: How much roughly for 3 weeks in Australia PP

It was nearly 3 dollars to the pound when I last went there, lived like a bloody King !

Re: How much roughly for 3 weeks in Australia PP
I think that I was out there the same time as you Ted and you're right - eating out in the heart of Sydney was much cheaper than London. The dollar was almost 2 to the pound! Cheap as chips! Since the Brexit vote the pound is worth about 20 per cent less against the Aus dollar so much more expensive. Hopefully it'll be back up there again by next year as I'm out there again but I won't be holding my breath!

May surprise you, but i actually agree, well to a point, so no offence taken, in many ways NZ is the nicer place, well until it comes to work, wages and opportunities.............then im afraid Sydney or Melbourne win hands down, bit like London and rural England were there is some fantastic places and countryside but unless your either loaded or have a rural occupation there aint much prospects for you.

Re: How much roughly for 3 weeks in Australia PP
We had a nice lunch in Sydney harbour last year and it was a lot cheaper than London IMO

Re: How much roughly for 3 weeks in Australia PP
The BEST thing about Australia is that once you get there, you're only a couple of hours away from NZ, where the scenery is better and the people nicer.

No offence Sydney.

Re: How much roughly for 3 weeks in Australia PP
Depends on what style you want, backpacking is pretty cheap, $30 or $40 a night should do it.

Basic hotel/motel you will need to budget at least $120/$150, decent hotel up around $200 a night, 4/5 star, then you will be lucky to get change from $300 at the minimum

Eating out can be pretty cheap particularly the big city's and Asian, i can get a lovely big bowl of beef noodles locally for $10, and a decent spread for me and the Mrs for around $40, average Pub meal you will be looking at around $15 to $20, and a beer around $7 here in Sydney.

Nice restaurant without being too formal or upmarket you will be looking at $30 to $50 each, fine dinning at least $85, Macdonalds for a bit of fast food, then $10/$12 sees you get a basic burger meal deal.

If you are doing the self catering thing then prices here are not too dissimilar to the UK IMO, overall that is, some things are cheaper other things more expensive.

If i was coming from the UK and not backpacking then AFTER paying the airline tickets i would budget at least $5000 to $6000 Aussie Dollars for the 3 weeks, if you want 4/5 star all the way then its going to be a lot more, up near $10K at least.

Why not plan the trip first, jump on Expedia or one of the hotel sites and price up the trip, do the same with what attractions or activities you want to see, same with transport, bare in mind distances here though, a bus trip from Melbourne to Sydney may look cheap but its going to be about 10 to 12 hours long...

For 3 weeks i would look at doing just the East Coast, fly into Melbourne or Adelaide and out of Cairns.
