Hi all, I have been offered and accepted a job in Melbourne (just awaiting the dreaded decision on the 457 visa!) I am looking for some advice. I have been offered a salary of $85k, plus LAFHA of $15k for the first two years. I am on my own, no partner no kids and I would like to rent a flat in Melbournes SouthBank/Docklands area for about $1700 - which, from my research, is do-able.
However, i would like to know if anyone can give me a rough idea what my other bills may amount to? I'm thinking like rates, water, electricity, gas, car insurance etc...
I know everyone's different but all the prices I've found so far on PIO seem to be for houses with hordes of kids!
Reall grateful for any assistance
