I'm a Danish game artist moving to Australia in September, with my girlfriend to relax and maybe work a little 3D related freelance. We're still discussing in which city to settle in, and we have narrowed our choice down to Sidney, Brisbane or Melbourne. I've already found a lot of information searching your forum, but I still wonder about one thing.
Are there any differences in living costs in the 3 cities? For instance, the price for renting an apartment in our capital Copenhagen is often twice as expensive as the price for a comparable apartment in our second largest city. I could imagine that living in Brisbane is cheaper than living in Sidney, but can you confirm that?
Also, I've been looking for other Australian online 3D communities to gain information. Can you recommend me any besides Sumea?
Edit: By the way... We're staying for a year, so it's not just some short term vacation :)
