Visited the travel agent today. Wow. This is going to be expensive.

Does anyone have a couple thousand they wanna give me?

Well, the first go at it and all transportation with Oz Experience plus tours to Fraser Island, the Whitsundays, Kakadu (national park), Uluru/Outback and a flight to Darwin from Cairns, is $3600. That only includes accommodation and meals for 2-3 weeks worth of the time (during the tours). It doesn't include going to Perth or Tasmania or NZ.

So, I'm looking into other options. But to be honest, I don't think it's going to go down much. Not without cutting out huge parts of the trip I'd like to do.

However, other options include taking a different Oz Experience bus pass and getting myself around to the rest of the places that I want to visit another way. Like a different, non-guided bus system, which is slightly cheaper, but I also wouldn't get as much information/knowledge out of it.

I can also do lower-quality tours. Which will save me around $300 or so. Not much difference there.

So, if anyone has any idea about costs of things and whether this is horrible or good or normal, then PLEASE email me.
