    Conclusion .... All good things must end

    ... cheaper at each stop the further we got from Melbourne until Nullarbor proper. At it's most expensive it rose approximately fifty cents/litre (compared with Melbourne) and with large fuel tanks that could amount to $50 extra.......if you let your tanks run completely dry and had to fill up at the most expensive pumps!

Everyone in Sydney look like they are on the go 24/7 and get around on trains = London!! That evening I went to the comedy club for free with the hostel.

    ... food for example!! Wine for another!! Gelati for another...oh does that come under food? What about tours...they can be invaluable and usually money well spent. Even here though, you can save money. Each city has a greeter service; a group of volunteers that will show you around a part of their city for only a small tip.
