Hey Jason

I hope you are not travelling to far to confirm the availability of peanut butter in Australia. I can tell it is very much available throughout Australia.

She’s not crazy neither blind. She may have searched in the wrong place or just didn’t search enough. LOL. I never been in US yet but Australia is the place for me, it has everything I need.

Cigarettes are expensive. The cheapest being Brandon, Pall Mall and Super kings which work out around $10 for 20, they're also pretty rough too on the throat. Anything half decent is $13 plus for 25 and Benson & Hedges will set you back $16 plus for 25.
It's an expensive game and hand rolling tabacco is dear too at over $30 for 50 grams.

Probably guns, crime and unemployment ?
Recent shootings in Sydney West indicate that you are wrong about the first two...

Most food is not too pricey. (Fruit and veges are pricey.) A little more then in the US but my big problem was trying to find items. They are not where you would think they would be..and you dont have as many options as you do in the US.
There are US regional items that can't be easily found in Australia, or at least not on the Gold Coast:
Shortening (like for baking)
Jello-type pudding
Crab/Shrimp boil
Tex-Mex restaurants
Canning jars and replacement lids
I found frozen okra at both an Indian and a Taiwanese grocery store, but they don't carry it in Woolies or Coles.

There are other great things you have here in Australia though, like Pavlova mixes!
