How much does it cost to travel in Australia with 2 kids? 

Let’s talk about money, the most important factor when traveling….

We are on the road for 4 weeks now and still loving it! 

When we were budgeting our travel expenses we have calculated with daily expenses of $100 for all of us. 

We have crunched the numbers today and we are only slightly above our daily budget with $122 per day. It looks like food is our biggest expense (must be the Happy Meals and Frappes) although we avoid to eat out and cook in the caravan most of the times.

I’m the biggest fan of Apps and we are using the free version of Housekeeper! 

Here are our expenses:


Transports are our Fuel Expenses and our Audi’s Diesel Fuel consumption is 9 l without towing and about 12 l when towing.

Clothing are our Laundry Expenses.

We are traveling slow, so slow that even Trucks and Road trains are overtaking at 100 km/h but we are not in a hurry and so far have made approx. 2500 km (plus a few km on the bikes) 

But we are only 1372 km from home which might be a lot for other countries but Australia is big!

It takes a while to put the kids to sleep sometimes and so we drive around or explore the Cities while they nap. 

A life on the Road is cheaper than owning a house, is much more fun and is less work! We don’t miss the big cleanings, garden work or pool maintenance. 

The following Video is the reason that our Leisure budget was higher but how could you miss the Whitsundays and Whitehaven Beach when you travel the East Coast in Australia ?

  4. Great post. Slightly offtopic, I am in the midst of getting my girlfriend a steamy present and I am thinking along the lines of lingerie. I am currently looking at Peaches and Screams (peachesandscreams.co.uk) and was wondering whether anyone has any experience with this online lingerie shop? What would you guys recommend I get my girlfriend? The last thing I want to do is offend her so I am looking for sensible lingerie suggestions – nothing too extreme. Thank you in advance!
