We are 6 months/ HALF A YEAR into our very first lap of Australia!!

- Here are our Accommodation Costs broken down!

Nights spent in:

Free camps ----------------------------------- 111 nights

(Under $25) Low Cost Camps ------- 50 nights

Caravan Parks ------------------------------- 23 nights

Total Costs:

Free camp -------------------------------------#FREE

Low Cost Camps -------------------------- $760.60

Caravan Parks ------------------------------ $902.95

Total Spent in the 184 days:

----------------------------------------------------- $1663.55

 

    

 

 

So on average we spend $9 a day on our accommodation which equals just $63 a week for our family of 5!!

** Worth a mention: 3 months into our trip we'd spent $1105.35 so in the last 3 months we've mastered Wiki camps  and living on a tighter budget spending just $558.20 in the recent 3 months **

Fuel is our biggest cost on our travels- we average 19L/ 100kms and have spent roughly $7,500

Food- We spend the same or slightly less than we did at home as we have no pantry to hide piles of cans and packets of 'stuff' in the back of! We also don't (usually) go out for tea while travelling (with the exception of our night out in Rocky just the other week and a girls night out for me while staying in Darwin).
