      The $150 i quoted includes mobile and internet. I have only ever had one electricity bill for $1000 over the summer months when i was leaving the aircon on most days. My elec bill in a 3 storey two bed town house is usually $320 per qtr gas about $150. I dont pay water or rates as I rent but my gf has her own place and she pays strata etc and i would say $150 pw still covers everything.

      if you leave the aircond on in summer months or the heating on all the time in winter, you will get a shocking bills afterwards. a friend of mine who live in a 2-bed roomed unit had a bill of 850 this quarter. She has small children (7 and 3) On the contrary my bill was 180 even though I have a bigger house. We only switched the heating on for around 1-2 hours a day, only when the weather really cold. With our teenage children, we could survive.. so depends on the family circumstances, sometime you don;t have any choice but has to fork out a lot of money for the electricity.
