How does the cost of living compare across Australia?

The cost of living seems to vary significantly across different areas of Australia. What are your monthly costs in the following areas :-

Housing (mortgage/rent)
Food
Utilities
Travel
Social Life

Please state where you live so we can compare and contrast as it would be interesting to see the variations across the board.

Even if you take different suburbs of Sydney or Brisbane into account, you will see major price differences. I live in Sydney and can say the following

- an average 2 br unit in Sutherland costs $360,000
- an average 2 br unit in Rockdale/Kogarah/Hurstville costs $420,000
- an average 2 br unit in Rhodes/Strathfield costs around $500,000
- an average 2 br unit in Marrickville costs around $450,000
- an average 2 br unit in Blacktown/Liverpool can be bought around $300,000 - $310,000

Same about Brisbane
- an average 3 br townhouse in Richlands costs $340,000
- an average 3 br townhouse in Redbank Plains costs $310,000
- an average 3 br townhouse in Redcliffe costs around $340,000
- an average 3 br townhouse in Annerley costs around $450,000

Many units in Milton, Southbank, Kangaroo Point will be more expensive than townhouses in mentioned areas.

Hi Dexter

That is a fairly large swing in the cost of property in the different suburbs of Sydney and Brisbane - a lot of people will be surprised by this. It looks as though those looking to move to Australia will certainly need to have done their homework before they land - otherwise they could be in for a big shock!

I think living costs in Australia relies upon where you're. And in common it's more costly when you're in like Brisbane, sydney. As health services are very costly. As i have spend a lot of money on health related issues an dtreatments.
