    The main supermarkets over here are woolworths and coles - you can gon their websites and compare prices of food etc try for furniture you can try ikea - and fantastic furniture -

    for taxes you can check the local council websites for your chosen area - do you have any idea where you are heading?

    as for cars if you give me an idea of what you are after I can check with one of the car dealers we work with for you

    if you need any more help just let me know

    Hi dont compare for when you get here you will be spending $$ and not pounds and yes you will compare but dont forget that uk has a bigger buying power than aus as there are more people and not as far to take things. but if you shop right you will be fine and buy what you can afford and they do have aldi hope that helps you all the best the taylors coomera.

    HI you can get some good deals on cars if you buy at end of the month as the sales men are trying to reach targets and will do what ever for a sale and price depends on what type.
    As for houses depends when you are coming at the moment house prices are slowing and I think it is worth waiting a while as banks here are not releasing money as quick for new builds. And builders are trying to push sales on land for new builds and people cant get finance to build the house and have to give back word on plots and loose the deposits so if you play the game you can get some good deals hope that helps.

    With the price of food, it does pay to choose your shops carefully.

    Supermarkets often have rump steak at about $18 per kg, but some butchers have the better stuff for $9.99, and budget rump from about $6.

    Standard white milk can vary between $2.10 for 2 litres to about $3.80.

    ALDI is worth shopping at if you have one near you.

    Supermarkets in QLD will soon be displaying the price per unit, in the same way that ALDI already do.

    That will be good news! Often in Woolworths i see things like: 800gm pack $5.99, 500gm pack $5.85, for the same item !! And the smaller packs still sell !!
