Without a doubt, and don’t worry I did a stint living in Sydney 5 years ago so it won’t be a culture shock, albeit times were easier back in the heady days of long blonde hair and house shares and a care free world so didn’t need to concern myself as much with rental prices. But the “wow isn’t it expensive in the supermarkets here” and “wow isn’t alcohol expensive here” have all been and passed, no surprises in store for me on that score. Interestingly referencing London, I don’t know how many people have seen the BBC programme “Wanted Down Under”, but it’s always the one’s that come from the north of England or Wales or Scotland that are shocked by the prices in Aus and that they can’t get a 5 bed house with a swimming pool which makes me laugh no end, but I think living in London means being already used to a high cost of living, and therefore that there won’t be any surprises in that sense, or certainly a lot less. Very interesting how Melbourne or Aus in general isn’t geared up for an affordable furnished rentals market though, it takes it back to the days in the UK when furnished used to mean a higher rental than unfurnished. These days there’s no difference so perhaps Aus will catch up one day. I see a niche in the market there for some savvy person!
