But justgastanks won't ship Safari tanks here as you're considered part of NZ and they don't ship to Oz.

So no cheap Safari tanks for either of us

You certainly are, but I was at the Opera, so I was drinking champers...

Holy sheeeeet, beer is expensive in Australia.

The other thing I observed (in a Darling Harbour Pub) was that the next time I wanna watch the Rugby World Cup final with a bunch of pissed tangata whenua, I'll save myself some money and go down the Dinsdale Pub.

I have lived in Melbourne twice, and am currently back in Gisborne, NZ. If circumstances allowed I would move back to Melbourne tomorrow.

For comparison I have lived in Hamilton, Auckland, Wellington, Munich, London (twice), Rome, Caracas, Den Haag, and Melbourne. The wildest most fun place of ever lived was Caracas , most 'liveable' place i've ever lived was Melbourne.

The best beers I have ever discovered where from Germany (Aventinus & Erdinger) and NZ (Emersons) and i tried them both for the first time in Melbourne.

Don't get me wrong, I love NZ, and think it has a lot to offer and we are a very fortunate to be here. However for me personally regarding Jobs, Career, and the lifestyle and pass-times I have ( ), Aussie just has more of everything I want than NZ.

A disturbing number manage both at the same time.

Ridiculously so, my good man. The price of a cold refreshing ale has become the province of the well-to-do, the average working man is reduced to cheap cask wine for a thrill. A carton of 24 cans of swill (VB, Tooheys, etc) is northwards of $40, and a decent beer is nudging $60 a carton, the imported stuff is heading for $70 - 80 a carton (for unmanly 325ml serves). This once proud country is being priced into semi-sobriety, and it's no fun, let me tell you.
