    Is it worth the hassle trying to move to Australia for a blackhatter? Australia has been my dream ever since I can remember, I am going there for a study abroad programme for few months (last year in uni, planned to come back, finish uni and go back to au) but when I look at prices there and their constant rocket growth I am just shocked. I guess for someone who splits earnings between online and offline clients it can be worth it but for 100% online earner? And estate prices... My ideal plan would be to invest some of my earnings into estates but with these prices...the bubble is just overwhelming.

    PM me with your exact questions and I'll do my best to answer.

    Basically Australia is a lot more expensive then the US to live.

    I'm on the Gold Coast. Think Brisbane was recently rated as one of the most expensive places to live in the world - just crazy. That said, it's a great country to live in and think decent wages help offset the price to a degree.
