Motorcycle travel doesn’t need to cost the earth even during Christmas especially in Australia where the weather is warm. Here is a tip from our combined 50 years of motorcycle travel experience: Accommodation is your biggest ongoing expense Especially in these post covid days where there isn’t a motel room anywhere to be had for less than a $100. Camping is the obvious way to go, you can camp wild and in camp sites on alternate nights balancing costs with amenities.
Camping wild doesn’t always mean down the end of a dirt road and up the ridge. You can be tucked away but close to restaurants, bars and other hallmarks of civilisation.
Camping means packing more on your bike and a bit more time spent on setup and decamp but the alternate strategy above will slash your accommodation budget by 80%+ compared to motels leaving you with more $ for the fun stuff.
