I had a question -

Whats the actual cost for even the most basic/elementary Private-Medical Insurance for a migrant / non-PR in Sydney ?
This would help you to understand the basic cost of health insurance for a non-PR.

Where in Australia are you talking about? The rents vary enormously from location to location. The tax rates can be found on the ATO website. Look at Coles online for the cost of food. Food and other living costs are fairly uniform across the country but rents and house purchase prices vary greatly.

What type of visa are you thinking to apply for? You need to live near where you work. In Sydney, which is one of the most expensive cities in the world, there are two bedroom apartments for around $400 to $500 a week, probably an hour from the city centre.
Unfortunately where the rents are cheaper, eg Adelaide, the unemployment rate is higher and trending higher.

Roughly estimating, I doubt that any decent housing, unless you share, it's gonna be less than $300/week, no matter which major city you'll pick. In Canberra you can find studios at $300/week, and starting from approx $350-400/week you can have a 3-bedroom house... The difference is too small between different accommodation options.

@ Golden Bird: You should check the online resources as real estate sites that gives you a much more clearer idea what you can expect when you move, and also you should study a lot the employment market (seek.com, as one of the major sites). As everyday living, Woolworths Supermarket - The Fresh Food People and Coles Supermarkets will give you a good idea what your everyday expenses would look like, but you may find small local shops that will sell the same type of goods for less. Good luck!

But note that in Sydney $350 in rent for a house would get you an old, unrenovated house at least an hour from the city situated in an area with lots of public housing. Where I live, in a middle-class area, a house starts at about $700 a week.
Sydney is by far the most expensive city but it is where most of the job creation is at the moment.
