Hi everyone there. I'm planning to migrate to Australia, Mackay. I do have a friend there, but would anybody be willing to tell me about living costs in Mackay? We are family of four and I'm accountant. Regards.

Rents are very high and vacancy rates are low as there is huge employment demand due to the Mining Resources Boom. Mackay lives off coal mines (many miles inland) and sugar. Food prices in mackay slightly more than southern Australia due to freight costs but not significantly different. You will be welcome as there is a shortage of skilled workers in Mackay

Suggest check local newspaper for accom prices and employment if you haven't lined any up.
