My boyfriend and I just arrived in Sydney and are thinking of sticking to the east coast. We've heard it's best to start in the north before it gets too hot up there and work our way back down. Are there any one way rental places that we could do this from that aren't super expensive? We would like to drive to cairns area and then fly back to Melbourne. Thoughts, suggestions?

    I think you definitely have a great idea with the driving. Driving is one of the best ways to see the country and you can make accommodation cheaper by having a tent and sleeping bags so that you can camp in national parks where the overnight park entry fee is usually per car, and so almost always cheaper than staying at caravan parks or hostels.

    Australia has a great network of visitor information centers dotted all througout the country in pretty much every regional town and they will always be able to point to you campsites in the area.

    In terms of rental, if you are staying for quite a long time (a month or more) it may even be worth you money to buy a second hand car at the beginning of your trip and then sell it to other travellers at the end. about 3 years ago

    If you're going to drive, try Travellers Auto Barn. We've worked with them in the past and they really know this space. Their campervans also mean you can save some money on accommodation

    Buy a cheap campervan. If you look after it and keep it neat you will be able to sell it for the same amount once you've finished your trip. $6000 will get you a good bus. about 3 years ago
