No - you're reasonably safe on that score.

1) too expensive

2) too far away

and this

Correct on No 1 - I'm still bankrupt and traumatised from the cost of everything.  Love the enormous vegetables though!

No 2 - well yeah but no but yeah but - I managed to make my birthday disappear as I was flying when the date arrived and by the time I got to Oz it had gone - result!  (I don't like birthdays).

Can't bring myself to look at No 3 as I may never return and I definitely want to go again one day.

Yeah Oz is expensive but I loved it and would go back in a heartbeat.

Then again, I do live in the land of bullshit and chewing gum... ;)

never used to be Bongo, used to be cheap as chips to live here, now its turned to shit

median house price in Sydney is $918, 000 (about 460,000 quid) expected to reach a million by next year

just paid registration (road tax) for my car - 510 quid a year

petrol still cheap though and no heating reqd
