After been here just 12 days, we've found most things such as groceries, alcohol, clothes, electrical goods, public transport, pretty reasonable in price & quite similar to costs back in the UK. The one huge difference is the Government taking money for almost absolutely everything, so for we've personally learnt that driving licence fees are much higher here & there's registration fees & stamp duty to be paid when purchasing a car. Fuel is cheaper here & prices differ daily & from suburb to suburb. Sun protection is cheaper & was available for free at the Clipsal event we went to last week as was drinking water. But us Poms coming recently or soon to arrive can't really complain with the excellent exchange rate currently insitu!!!
