Recommended Posts

Hi everyone


Medicals arrived in Oz on 14th December so just waiting for the magic email now :D


Thought this may be useful. I was given the following cost of living comparisons from a recruitment agent at Michael Page. It would be interesting if anyone already in Oz agrees or disagrees with it.


To maintain a similar standard of living:

If you Earn … £ in the UK You will need to earn ….$ in Australia

£25,000 $44,200

£30,000 $53,000

£35,000 $62,000

£40,000 $70,500

£45,000 $79,400

£50,000 $88,200

£55,000 $97,000

£60,000 $105,880

£65,000 $114,700

£70,000 $123,500

£75,000 $132,300

£80,000 $141,200

£85,000 $150,000

£90,000 $158,800

£95,000 $167,600

£100,000 $176,500


Hope it helps anyone planning a move.

I guess it depends on individual circumstances too ,we are fortunate to be able to live mortgage free here which is a hell of a saving every month we also find its much cheaper to occupy the kids with activities and days out again a saving on the uk ,fuel is also alot cheaper,so unlike in the uk with hubby working 6 days and me working 6 evenings we are managing with hubby working 5 days here and i will shortly be looking for a part time job not necessarily because we need the money but so i get out and meet people.The guidlines are great but dont let them worry you as they did me before i left the uk ,,,

If you don't go after what you want, you'll never have it. If you don't ask, the answer is always no. If you don't step forward, you're always in the same place...

If you get a chance,take it, If it changes your life,let it. Nobody said it would be easy they just said it would be worth it...
