A bit like saying "I've decided to emigrate and all my extended family and every friend I've ever made since primary school have decided to come too - do you think I might struggle with loneliness?"

With all your allergies and phobias, Perth should be fine - other parts of Scotland maybe less so.

Whilst it is not a fortune it should be enough to live on depending on your lifestyle. Yiu may find that you don't want to go back to the uk every year but should you want to it will be enough to do so, albeit in economy. Many on here do earn a whole lot less than the figures you quite, hence the replies but I do understand your concerns when all you here about is how exPensive Aus is and if you haven't been here before yiu would have no comparison

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
Gross $225000
Super $20250
Tax $ 70096

Net $134628

Rent $30000
Food $15-20000
Cars $20000
Flights back $15000 plus need spending $

Thats $80000 odd already gone

School, Health ins, clothes, entertainment, plus all the other stuff to enjoy life.

Sure, things can be done cheaper, but money certainly can get burnt here in Perth.

Why would you want to go back to UK every year. If you are moving for a new life, wouldn't it be better to leave the old one behind...You'll soon know your real friends, as they will be coming to visit you.

If someone is let out of HMP Broadmoor, they don't want to keep returning there to have a look?

Don't be daft, people's friends and family cannot always visit - if my family were to fly here, thats 5 adult air fares, for me to go there and see them its one fare. And my mum can't come out, her health isn't good enough.

I know I'm not the only one in that position.
