From some of the threads Iíve read, people on here are very helpful in replying to individuals questions. This is my first thread so be gentle but I want to ask the group what salary scale would provide an average life.
Firstly I know thatís extremely subjective so let me give a few more details. I want to move out to Perth or Melbourne, with my wife (who currently cannot work) and 4 year old daughter. Not looking for the moon-on-a-stick here, just a small car, medical cover, rented apartment with 2-3 rooms and enough money to put clothes on our back, occasional travel to NZ (extended family) and semi-private child care. Iím a scientist (post-doc) so will probably be based near one of the Universities.
Any info you guys and gals can give would help out a long way. Iíll try and check back often enough in case you need more details.
p.s I heard you have a thing called ĎSuní over there. Being from Ireland the Ďhuge fiery ball in the skyí has taken on a near mythical property, since its departure behind 3km of black cloud. Can you confirm whether or not you need to wear three heavy jumpers in mid-summer?
