Expensive. But depends on your life style.

I can only give you my experiences.

Living :-
Rent $600 a week
Food $150 a week
Eletric $150 a month
Internet, phone, TV $200 a month
Gas and Water - Unknown (I recon about $100 a month combined)

Going out :-
$10 a beer in a Bar
$60 for a slab of Jim & Coke (24 cans) in a bottle shop
$100 for a nice meal per person,
$50 for an average meal per person
$10 for a cheap takeaway

Petrol is about $1.35 (but add 5c on a weekend, and take 8c off if you use supermarket vouchers)

Cars are expensive. They don't depreciate quick.

Public transport is very cheap, under $10 a day.
