Default Is this enough for family of 3 in Perth

Help please,

Just been offered total package of 225,000 Aus$ for Perth.

Will this be enough for UK family with 3 school kids to have a decent life?

Will need a house to rent, 2 x cars and a flight home each year to UK.

If we could save a bit it would be great also.

Normal family.

Any advice appreciated. Thank you

I'd say yes, but you might have to switch the underwater lighting off in the dog's swimming pool.

It must be - most people in their right mind would want a whole load more than that to suffer living in Perth.

You would be OK on half that amount, very happy on 3/4's and quite well off with 225K. I wish I could earn that much.

The answer to the "is it enough" question is that it varies by individual and you need to compare to UK earnings. So if you can manage on GBP100k then you should be able to manage on $225k. Considering that there are few people who would seriously need to ask if htey can manage on GBP 100k in UK, I would also suspect this is a wind up. Hilarious

If you seriously need to ask this question, then you seriously do not deserve that package.
