Most Expensive Cities to Travel to In Australia

Most Expensive Cities to Travel to In Australia



Even the locals complain about how expensive the Western Australian capital has become  all the locals who are not partaking in the wealth created by the region’s minerals and resources boom. It’s a place where a schooner of beer can cost you a mortgage.

But it’s also a great place. Completely self-contained it’s the most remote capital city on earth it feels more like a small country than a town. The shopping is good and one of its finest attractions  the vast Kings Park that stretches across the outer CBD  is completely free of charge!



The Victorian capital oozes sophistication and charges accordingly. Melbourne is one of the world’s best places to dine (and wine), with a fabled variety of cuisines on endless streets of ritzy restaurants.

It’s also uniquely sports-mad, with major footy matches attracting regular 100,000-plus crowds and bringing the city to a standstill.

Once thought of as rather staid and dowdy, the city has transformed itself in recent years and now rivals Sydney as a global leader.



Brash and bold, Brisbane feels like a new town in many ways, not least because so much of it had to be completely rebuilt after spectacular floods that swept away the CBD in 1974. The river continues to dominate, as it flows through the city; much commuting is done by boat and catamaran.

Brisbane is a magnet for money and skyscraping apartment blocks now dominate the skyline; they are pricey indeed but worth it for the view alone.



The South Australian capital likes to style itself as Australia’s Wine Capital as well. It’s a compact place home to just over a million people and boasting so many civilised features it is definitely value for money even if it is expensive!

The completion of the Adelaide Oval refurbishment will further enhance the feeling of wellbeing in this gently lovely city.



sydney australiaWant to really splash out? Sydney prides itself on offering the best in everything and charges accordingly.

It’s a big place more than four million people and steeped in both history and the latest technology. Many of the locals commute across the iconic Harbour on small ferries that run between many of the inlets; actually, Sydney is perched on what closely resembles a Norwegian fjord and the city becomes an endless series of bays, inlets and cliffs, never far from the river and nature. Worth every penny!
