Sydney, New South Wales
When it comes to finding budget accommodation, Australia has plenty of options. There are hostels in every major city and tourist centre, offering single sex and mixed dorms along with some private dorms for couples. If you want to see Australia’s spectacular outdoors, you can pitch a tent in our national parks or camping grounds. Other ideas include motels, country pubs (ranging from rustic to romantic) and holiday apartments (an economical option for big groups).
You can also deepen your Australian experience, make friends and pick up some new skills with a stay on a farm or outback station. This is a great opportunity to experience the Australian bush with other young travellers. If you are visiting Australia on a Working Holiday visa, you may be eligible to extend your visa for another 12 months if you have undertaken 88 days of specified work within regional Australia. This includes plant and animal cultivation, fishing, tree farming and mining. For more information visit border.gov.au
