Cost Of Living In Australia Calculator
I spent hours researching the costs of living in Australia before we moved, but even with all my online research, there were still unexpected costs after we arrived and settled into our new lives.
As a total spreadsheet nerd (seriously I have one for everything!), I find the easiest way to see how much your life in Australia might cost is with Excel.
That’s why I’ve designed this cost of living in Australia calculator for you.
By using this spreadsheet, you’ll get clear on how much money you actually need to survive in Australia.
Not only that, but I’ve included a handy income vs expenses calculator.
Which means that you can enter your expected salary in Australia (with links to research what your earning potential and take home pay could be), and it’ll work out automatically how much money you’ll have left at the end of each month after your expenses.
Also included are links to external resources that will help you work out exactly what your costs for your family and lifestyle might be – from health insurance premiums, to pet food, mobile phone costs, groceries and everything else you can think of!
No matter where you are heading in Australia, or considering living, this calculator can help you work out if you can really afford to live there!
