Extras

To save you $$$’s we have kept the road trip price low giving you the option to add additional activities along the way.

– Accommodation and National park fees included; We camp throughout the trip at a mixture of holiday and bush campsites. Accommodation and national park fees are included in the trip price. (*Occasionally during school holidays or extreme weather you may be required to pay an extra $10-$15 on top of the trip price for emergency alternative accommodation options).

– Food; At the beginning of each trip we all put in $50 into a ‘food fund’. This is then used to buy ingredients that make up the delicious feasts we eat along the way. On average you can expect to spend between $5 to $10 a day for food.

– Sleeping bag/ Mattress/tent rental; To cover cleaning and repair costs, these can be rented for the duration of the trip for $10per person each (payable when the trip starts). Our tents accommodate 2-3 people.
