The only advice is to find cheaper accommodation (not so close to the city) and don't eat out and buy your food from the supermarket etc. You can also cook cheap meals.

Australia is not cheap even more so when you arrive and don't have a job.

Look for specials on food etc..

Most places have some specials each week.

I bought eggs today for 99 cents a dozen.
Got some prawns last week for $6 kg

Two shops near each other selling skinless Chicken Breast $15 kg or $9.99 kg

All perfectly good...

In brief, for a small family (4 members ideally), the living cost with no luxury involved, should come to around AUD$ 2800-3200 per month.
