Australia is known to be one of the most expensive countries in the world.

For example, a pack of cigarettes costs $35AUD, which is 2,800 yen in Japanese yen.

Therefore, if you stay in a hotel or backpacker where you can cook for yourself, you can save money on food.

Eating out in Australia costs more than $15AUD per meal, so if you want to save money, self-catering is the way to go.
