Australia on the Cheap

The new Aussie travel app that will save you money

Choose from 450 free or cheap attractions, activities and accommodation.

Everyone loves a bargain – not just backpackers – and this new travel app from travel writer and guide book author, Lee Atkinson, has hundreds of ways you can save money on your next Australian holiday.

Australia on the Cheap is perfect for anyone who wants to save a little cash and avoid getting ripped off in a tourist trap.

Full of money saving tips, the app has more than 450 free or cheap attractions, family friendly things to see and do, places to camp and good value places to stay, from city hotels to country pubs.

Use the app to plan your trip and save your favourites for easy reference later. The off-line maps and photos mean you don't have to worry about finding WiFi or chalking up expensive roaming or telephone bills.

"Australia is a big place, but you don't need to spend up big to see the best of it," says Atkinson. "It doesn't matter what your holiday budget is, there are always times when you don't feel like opening the wallet or bruising the credit card. Sometimes the best things really are free... if you know where to look."

Australian on the Cheap is only $4.49 including free updates. Available for download now from iTunes and Google Play or from

Lee Atkinson is a freelance travel writer and author of seven books about travelling in and around Australia. Her first app, Australian Road Trips, won the inaugural Best Travel App award at the 2012 ASTW Travel Journalism Awards for Excellence.
