Your insurance costs are based on CTP I think. For comprehensive it will be a bit more. You're in the right ballpark though for most of it I reckon.

We are on the LAFHA and get a school grant which covers fees, uniform, supplies etc, so that might be worth looking into...I would say food, household costs might be slightly higher....to be honest, I find living in Brisabane fairly expensive.....

Brisbane is very expensive relative to Sydney I find except the cost of housing. The anti-competitive practices that go on here would make Fidel Castro blush. Dry cleaning and restaurants being two notables that spring to mind.

Hi Aeronaut,

from your nick it seems where in the same field.

I'm currently looking for work in the Aviation field and relocation possibilities,

I'm interested to know also the feedback on others as to salary/relation to standard of living on around 100k upwards.
Maybe if you don't mind we could discuss more about the field and packages that are on offer etc.
