Adelaide isn’t considered when planning a vacation to Australia as people wrongly assume there is nothing to see there but churches and provincial life.
Adelaide does not have any vast natural wonders or man-made wonders that are as iconic as the Sydney Harbour bridge or Uluru, but if you are planning to backpack in Australia, Adelaide is the place to be.
Just because you are backpacking you don’t have to sleep out in the boonies. You could save up on the other things and not spend a lot of time looking for places to stay in Melbourne. If you are looking for a central location stay at a hotel like Avani Adelaide Residences.
Go Cheap When You Can
Go cheap when you can and carry the minimal with you when you are travelling to make the most of a backpacking trip in Adelaide. This doesn’t mean you need to spend the whole holiday on a budget. You could get a work visa instead of a holiday visa when you visit and that would enable you to work during your holiday and earn as you spend.
You could also shop from bargain shops, drink during happy hours and do a little research into what sort of offers are available for the duration of your stay in the city.
