Default Considering a secondment to Adelaide

Hello,

I'm an English aerospace engineer working in Turkey, considering a secondment to Adelaide with my family (wife and 2 boys, 3 & 4). There may be the opportunity to go permanent later on.

I've been told the schools are excellent and the lifestyle is relaxed, also like the weather, beach and everyone will speak English!

Everyone I've spoken to who has been loves Australia, but the common reply is that it is very expensive to live there.

How expensive is it? What do you need to earn to have a good lifestyle for a family of 4 (assuming renting).
Would probably like to live in a more rural area in a house, I've had enough of city centre and apartments...

Thanks,
Jon

100K AUD per year is minimum you need .... although people manage with 70-80K yearly as well but that depends on your lifestyle. With 100K AUD and family of 4, there won't be much savings though .....
Beyond this sky is the limit ..... rural areas might be bit cheaper in terms of rent BUT not drastically cheaper.
