How to Travel East Coast Australia on a Budget
Travel East Coast Australia on a Budget but for How Long?
The east coast is so full of encounters and experiences that heading out there on a short holiday will have you regretting it big time.

Travelling the East Coast of Australia on a Budget
The Greyhound is the most cost effective mode of transport to get down to the east coast. Alternatively, you can look at hiring a camper van and driving down there, while a hired car will be handy for exploring all corners, like those hidden beaches. www.greyhound.com.au
Look for Cheap Accommodation
Head out to the east coast during high-season and you’ve got to shell out more than a few dollars on accommodation. But then again, if you are a party-animal and crave the experience, there is no season like high season. Beat the costs and tour the east coast of Australia for cheap by looking for cheap and comfy hostels, couch surfing or staying at campsites. Perfect for meeting new people, having loads of company around you and getting to know the locals. www.hostelworld.com/hostels
Save on Your Food and Drink
Eating out on the east coast can be costly, but not if you learn to be frugal. Instant noodles can be bought in bulk and are really a backpacker staple, but for times you crave something more, how about a group BBQ on the beach, a pretty awesome way to eat for cheap!
For those pre-party drinks, Chateau Cardboard or plain old – goon, is not an all bad alternative, especially if you try it with some goon recipes. www.stayatbase.com/goon-cocktails also, check-out the backpacker bars.
