According to your spending habits put down how much you're likely to spend (i.e. shopperholic vs penny pincher).

If you intend on doing any activities, going to specific events or needing internal flights, mini holidays within a holiday, add that to your costs.

As you're in a different country and Australia is not cheap compared to say Asia, I'd add 20% buffer and if you're prone to blowouts, then I would up the buffer amount or at least have access to credit facilities.

Voila you have how much you are likely to spend

Hope that helps.
Okay will do that thank you

Depending on how long you want to visit for and what you want to do will depend on how much you will need. If your travelling alone and don't know anyone from australia and are unable to work here then yes you will need more than the average. The minimum is $5000 that you need. Depending on everything else you may need more or that amount should be right for you

Hey guys, I'm flying into Sydney in May and am taking £6,500 with me (Approx $10,oooo give or take depending on the rate)
I have a weeks accomodation booked up and some trips but after that I intened to work straight away, mainly to help me settle in as I will be travelling alone. My return flight is paid for & I am hoping that this will cover my trips and what I earn will pay for my food/accom etc. Am I being realistic?
I have had friends go wtih £2,000 and do just fine as they got work straight away, also had friends go on their overfraft..... I'm a planner lol

It totally depends on the tie when you are planning to visit Australia. Also the places and cause of your travel. If you are planning to visit Brisbane, then the cost will be less than the travel cost of Melbourne or Sydney.

Hi
My son went to Australia a couple of years ago, flying into Sydney. I think he went out there with about $2,500. He got a bus down to a relative stayed there for a couple of weeks then went back up to Sydney, met a friend and travelled from there up the coast to Brisbane. They stayed at hostels the whole time,and had a great time on not much money. When his friend came back home after 6 weeks he stayed out there for another 6 months, got himself a job in a youth hostel up on the Sunshine coast and so money was fine.
Good Luck, have fun and stay safe
