Australian Earnings

Visa Bureau is not affiliated with the Australian Government but is an independent UK company.

The cost of living in Australia is generally recognised as being slightly higher than in the UK. This can be attributed to a few factors, typically the country's strong dollar and the costs of imports due to its location.

However, average wages in Australia are also typically higher, meaning that any increase in price is usually balanced out.

While individual wage offers can vary greatly depending on a number of factors including location, experience and industry, here is a breakdown of some average earnings in Australian dollars converted to Pound Sterling to compare.
