Curiosity: Which is the most affordable city in Australia?

R.: The city with the smallest life cost in Australia is Adelaide.  Adelaide is 18% cheaper than Sydney, 15% than Melbourne, 7% than Perth, and 5% cheaper than Brisbane or the Gold Coast. The main reason is the lower price for housing.

Darling, we saved 10 cents this month! We are rich!
