How much will I earn in Australia?
The amount of money you earn depends on the type of job you do. The minimum wage is AUD $17.70 but many jobs pay upwards of AUD $20.00 per hour. Certain jobs (like farm work or resort work) may adjust pay to some extent if housing is included.
How much does housing cost in Australia?
Sydney and Melbourne are generally the most expensive cities for accommodation. You'll probably pay around $200 AUD for a shared room per week if you are in short-term accommodation. If you want your own room, it'll cost more.
If you are staying in a town or city, it's worth thinking about staying in or sharing an apartment. It's generally cheaper to do this, and you will be paying by the week rather than by the day. Our partner can help you find housing and even arrange apartment viewings.
