Sydney good value for expats
Released 14 July 2010

Australian cities offer value for money for expatriates in the Asia-Pacific, according to investment firm Mercer Worldwide.

The Cost of Living Survey 2010 found cities in Australia were competitive destinations for global workers compared to other cities in the region.

Sydney was ranked the 24th most expensive city to live in, falling well behind other Asia-Pacific business capitals Tokyo (2), Osaka (4), Hong Kong (8) and Singapore (11).

The ranking is based on the comparative cost of more than 200 items, including housing, transport, food, clothing and entertainment.

Other Australian cities that made the list include Melbourne (33) place, Brisbane (55), Perth (60) and Canberra (74).
