If you are paying tax at the Australian tax rate, you will only be left with $41,703.00 - you can do a quick calculation at TaxCalc - Calculate your tax. 2013-2014 financial year

This is not much for a family to live off in Australia.

I'm not sure what the rules are in regards to kids etc.. the ATO (Australian Taxation Office) will have more information.

hi there, you can rent a room in a share house for around $150 - $200 per room per week. As for food - food is quite expensive here. You could cook at home for around $6.00 per meal - or less if you try hard and like rice and cheaper vegies. You can eat out pretty cheaply - for around $10 per person. plenty of great cheap and cheerful restaurants.
Clothes are expensive here.
Also - keep in mind travel costs. Petrol is around $1.50 per litre.... phew! That's a lot. Public transport is $12 a day for zone 1 and 2.
Good luck.

At the risk of sounding naive, what do you mean by zones?

I'm trying to get a figure about how much I need to earn on a monthly base to run my family in Melbourne. I'm trying to get a god minimum figure That I can use as a minimum requirement to accept or not a job offer there.

these are my guess based on information based until now.
we are 2 adults and 2 kids (7yo and 4 yo)

monthly costs

food: 2000 AUD (6 AUD x 2 x 4 x 31)
rent: 2500 AUD
health insurance: 200 AUD ??? (If holder of permanent VISA)
School subscription for 2 kids: 500 AUD
Utility: 500 AUD
Car Insurance and fuel: 400 AUD
Clothes and other exp. : 1000 AUD

this sumup to about 7000 AUD.

Are these estimate correct? are them higher or lower than what are IRL?
I'm missing something that I should consider?

I don't want to consider in this evaluation extra costs like going out for dinner or fitness center etc ...

thanks in advance
Alkex

The cost of living in Melbourne can vary according to the type of accommodation you choose and the lifestyle you lead.
cost of groceries, eating out, utilities and entertainment is similar across Melbourne, the cost of accommodation in and around the city centre is greater than in the outer suburbs. On the other hand, travel costs may increase the further you live from the centre of the city.

You will need to budget approximately AUD$2300 $5000 for the initial costs of establishing yourself in Melbourne.
