The most expensive major city for housing and utilities is Sydney. To give you a comparison of how much more it is, check out how it compares to the other cities in Australia – it’s 36% more expensive than Melbourne and 52% more expensive than in Hobart.
Sydney is also the most expensive city for transport. Public transport in the country’s most populated city is more expensive than every other capital and Hobart is 58% cheaper than in Sydney. Transport in Melbourne is about 18% less than in Sydney.

Did you relocate or return home to Tasmania to live, play or work or all of the above Anna? I relocated to Tassie to live with more work / life balance – so I guess all of the above!
What would you say to someone who is hesitant about relocating for a job opportunity? It is scary at first, unless you give it a go you’ll never know what it will be like; it is hard making new friends/connections when starting over again, however joining various sporting or social groups helps make it easier. Also getting out there & networking with other business like minded professionals, getting out & about travelling around the state (local or further away from where you are living), whenever possible is my advice.
