Interesting! I've lived on the Gold Coast with my partner. Each one of us had a part time job, getting paid 20 to 25 dollars per hour. We were able to pay rent in a one bedroom beach front apartment and all the bills, plus affording ok restaurants, bars and some things we enjoy, like books, entertainment and technology gadgets. It's not a cheap place to live, but once you get a job you can do all your stuff, even save money if you're not a spendthrift and use your money wisely.
