In just one weeks’ time we will be at our first stop on our road trip home to Victoria from Western Australia.
After being in the West for close to 3 years, it’s now time to hit the road back home to spend some time with our families and friends. Heading off from Geraldton our 12 day trip is planned but like all best made plans they can change. We are permitting ourselves an extra 2 days on the off chance that we see something that is awesome to us that makes us stay longer!
Our day by day road trip looks like this;
Day 1- Geraldton to Mount Magnet
Day 2-Mount Magnet to Leonora
Day 3- Lenora to Kalgoorlie
Day 4- Kalgoorlie
Day 5- Kalgoorlie to Balladonia
Day 6- Balladonia to Eucla
Day 7- Eucla to Streaky Bay
Day 8- Streaky Bay to Port Lincoln
Day 9- Port Lincoln to Port Augusta
Day 10- Port Augusta to Broken Hill
Day 11- Broken Hill to Mildura
Day 12- Mildura to Donald
With our trip, we will be on a strict budget of $2500; I have calculated this over a full 14 days. You may be thinking that is insane and such a high amount for a 14 day trip; however we will be driving two cars a Mazda 2 & Nissan Navara that will be towing a Caravan.
We will be eager to do this under Budget and we plan to show you how we do this.
Our breakdown of our money expense is listed below,
Accommodation – $350
Food – $350
Fuel – $1460
Our fuel expense is the most highest and that is only because of two vehicles, however we are planning to purchase additional fuel hopefully at a lower price save some costs with the drive across. We know our food budget will not be that high as we are vacating our house in Geraldton and have plenty of food to take with us. However we are taking into consideration water, beer and the odd lunch or dinner.
We will most likely be staying in Caravan Parks with powered sites as we are still tweaking our van to be suitable for unpowered sites. Activities expense is reasonable, we will be looking for free options, however we have the Kalgoorlie Super Pit tour high on the must do list!
So stay tuned on our social media platforms, Facebook & Instagram to see our road trip adventure. We will be posting about our caravan park stays, free camps, free & paid activities and any other money savers we can offer our readers. Remember; make memories, live life, love life and loveyourtravels.
Its all about sharing our travel experiences and encouraging others to do more travel themselves. Whether is on a budget or lashing out, we do it all 🙂
