Hi
It sounds ok, about double the average wage here, but as others have said it depends on the hours you will be working etc.
The cost of living here is high but the salary will be sufficient.
When are you planning to come ? I live in Brisbane and the next few months can be trying weather wise for those who are not used to it. The rest of the year the weather is great.

I'm going to work, 35-40 hours per week excluding lunch breaks.

How many hours per week is standard for office work in Australia?

That is about right. I work full time and work 36.75 hours per week.

If you want to check your pay you can always check the rates for your award on fair work Australia website that will give you a general idea if what they are paying is correct for your occupation.

Let me re - iterate my point. If you are offered 130k package including a car which other professionals are dreaming about then good on you. BUT what I am trying to say is this forum itself is trying shit hard to paint a good picture about the already bad situation here in job market.
It is an exploitation to try to get people into Australia without them knowing the real situation that they will be facing.

Is that means I'll all these benefits for nothing? In the UK you have got different tax band which means you have got lower tax free allowance.

That's right, it would only come into play when working out the Medicare levy ( should you have to pay it) which is only 2% anyway. It is also taken into account when assessing welfare and child assistance payments however you basic income is well above the eligibility threshold of any assistance.
