I'm a 20 year old guy from Denmark going to Australia for 1.5 months this September. My plan is to fly into Sydney and make my way north to Brisbane (from which I’ll fly to New Zealand), stopping here and there to enjoy the country, culture and whatever other adventures might reveal themselves.
I'll admit my budget is rather tight, so I was wondering whether hitchhiking from Sydney to Brisbane, or even half way, would be a viable option. I don’t mind roughing it up at all, in fact I rather enjoy doing things the difficult (aka “bum”) way for the experience.
However, coming from denmark -which is about the size of a pebble compared to Australia- I have no idea if hitchhiking is a go or a no-go.
Sooooo, basically my question is whether or not I should try for it, and ofcourse what things I should experience on the way (aside from everything)?
