Here are some great travel tips for traveling to New Zealand and Australia.
-New Zealand has plenty of jobs for travelers who are ready to work. Earn a little extra cash as a farmhand during your stay for a working experience.
-Try to watch for a happy hour or other drink specials while you are on the road. Beer can be very expensive in New Zealand!
-Campsites are a great way to save money if you have the gear. Otherwise, look for dorm-style rooms at local hostiles.
-Use free wi-fi whenever you can. Most libraries will offer the service, otherwise it could cost you if you need to get on at the hotel.
-If available, take the bus. Public transportation can get you close to nearly every New Zealand tourist attraction.
-Abel Tasman National Park has an array of outdoor activities that cost very little. Since visiting attractions can get quite expensive, spend as much time outside as you can!
-Dolphin and whale watching along the many coasts is a popular activity. Best of all, its usually free unless you want a special tour.
-For a once in a lifetime vacation in Australia, spend as much time as you can outdoors. The unique wildlife is usually free to watch.
-Australia adapts many of the European trends, including hostels. If you don't mind the dorm setting, this can be an excellent way to save money on accommodations.
-Day trips and excursions may be less expensive that multi-day ones. If you take time to relax inbetween, you may do less but you will be more energized.
-Drinks in bars can add up quick. Backpackers and trailblazers love boxed wine, which can easily be transported and costs less than a third the price of a night of drinking.
-When money is tight, ask the hostel if they have any chores you can do. Many hostels have plenty of work available.
-Make Uluru a stop on your itinerary. The scenery is nothing short of stunning and the guided tours are quite informative.
