    One of the most popular budget destinations in the world is Australia. After visiting Australia for my first time, I could see why. Since my first visit in 2006, I've been back twice, exploring more of the country, meeting more Australians, and taking part in the Aussie BBQ ritual. Australia is a breathtakingly beautiful country, very budget and backpacker friendly, and filled friendly locals always willing to share a beer. These are some of my favourite photos from my trips.

    I would definately not define Australia as budget friendly unless your budget is huge to begin with! This is very misleading.
