Hi SRB,
If you want a rough guide to travel costs, work on a minimum of $1.00 per kilometre travelled.
At that rate, you would cover basic meals, accomodation (campsites) and fuel but not much of all the extra's (vehicle repairs etc, boat trips heli rides and so on.

Use the search facility on this site to find more detailed costing methods.

We went in july 07,for 3 weeks and cost us $3,500

Brisbane , cairns, daintree, cooktown, laura,then to top and return.
Spent $1000 in fuel 3L diesel
fuel was around todays prices

around $800 in motels between brisbane and cairns.
that includes 3 nights in cairns
around $300 in camping fees past cairns
The rest was food,grog,souvenirs,barge fees, etc,etc
I still can`t see where that last $1300 went but we spent it.
Didn`t need permits

We did 6000kms return.
3500/6000=58cents per km
