Hi folks, I am wondering if you can give me a rough idea in US dollars how much would it cost to go to Australia for a month in February. I will be hitting Sydney and surrounding beaches, Melbourne, The Great Ocean Road and the beaches on the Gold Coast. Thanks in advance.

    Depends how much you want to live it up. In Sydney you can get a $50 steak or a $5 noodle dish, you can stay in a backpackers or a five star hotel. Australia is pretty expensive though. Aus/US dollar about equal so no need to convert. here are a few everyday items and prices.
    My lunch today, a salami and salad sandwich (large one) was $9.45. Bus fare from Sydney CBD to Bondi Beach is about $3.50. Fuel (gas) is around $1.50 a liter ($5.65 a gallon). An average airfare from Sydney to Melbourne is around $100. You can rent a compact car for about $30 a day. A case of beer (24 330ml bottles) is $42.

    Hi AlohaBill,

    Phil's prices are right on the money. It really all depends on what sort of trip you are taking - are you backpacking? You can get decent hostels for about $30/night. Lunch/dinner should cost you around $10-$15 at a takeaway place or a pub, but restaurant meals you'll be looking at more like $30. If you plan to go out at night, beers are around $6 each and wines $8 each. You will inevitably spend more than you anticipate, but I would say a budget of $100/day is fair if you are planning to stay at a hostel, have a few drinks and do some local activities. - Alicia over 8 years ago
