Traveling around Australia can be very cheap but even this kind of travels always cost some money. There's nothing much we can do about it. Australia is huge country and that is a fact. A tight budget should not stop you from traveling around Australia and exploring the secluded and beautiful Outback. This may be interesting for backpackers, people who are in working holiday and those who have more time than money to travel around Australia.

It might be surprising and doesn't sound like the cheapest option to travel around Australia. But often it does, just buy a car. Apparently, this idea only makes sense for people who are planning to spend several months or even years in the country as buying and selling it before leaving usually takes time. It can also be stressful selling a car especially when you only have limited time before your visa expires.

This option is the most popular mostly to backpackers and travelers on a working visa, though. If you belong to this group, chances are you'd also stay in Australian backpacker hostels. They are great places to build networks, to find out how to go to different places and meet people who are leaving and want to sell their cars.

Most of the cars that are bought and sold by those people are station wagons, small buses or campers which mean you can save on accommodation too as soon as you leave the cities behind. Cars in Australia are generally affordable. It's an advantage if there's someone traveling with you with some mechanical knowledge. It helps with the budget as well.

It is important to know that every state in Australia has a different set of rules when it comes to registration and licensing. Therefore, it is recommended to renew the registration and sell the vehicle in the state where you bought it. If you want to sell it in a different state, just allow a bit more time and find out about the requirements as early as you can.

You can buy a car at a very cheap price from someone who is under pressure to sell it because his flight will be on the next day. And if you are smart enough and plan well, you can even sell the car with a profit.
