Living costs

What would a couple need to live on for a year in brisbane. Renting one or two bed in suburb not too basic but not extravagent. Would be waiting on parent visa and i know can only spend 12 out of 18 months there.

According to Australian Bureau of Statistics average weekly total earnings is $1 164.60 (I think this is before tax not 100% sure) so that is about $60 528 per year per person.

That figure should give you an idea of what average people earn/survive on.

Wages are always quoted gross. Ie: before tax. Peoples tax varies depending on residential status and expenses, so cannot be standardised.
