We would really like to visit Australia next year. We are a couple with two kids. We are still in the very early stage of planning. This means that we don't even know if it is at all affordable when traveling with kids. Maybe Australia remains a backpackers paradise for the childless. Could someone give us an estimate on the budget range we should aim for? We are not so much interested in the metropolitan area's since I assume that that will be quite similar to European cities.
I guess you would need to consider airfares (1000-2000 Eur pp?), car rental (comparable to the fares in Europe?), accommodation (we do camp). I guess the rest would be comparable to a trip in Europe, am I right? We don't want to need a lottery winning to go, but we dont don't want to travel all the way to Australia to turn every penny before spending.
So basically the question is what rough figure (Eur5000, 10000, 15000, ....) should we aim for?
