 Getting Around

Australia is a huge country. Public transport is efficient but very expensive and mainly for inner city travel. Private shuttle buses run between cities and points of interest like hop-on hop-off buses. 

Renting a car or campervan is a good idea if the budget allows it. We bought a campervan for $1000 (the cheapest heard of) and sold it losing no money, so this is also an option for travellers. 

Flights are more expensive but Tiger Air and Jetstar to special deals at very reasonable prices.
