The cost of the housing in Australia largely is relative to where you want to live for example an apartment in Sydney is likely more expensive than a house rental in a smaller town on the outskirts of Sydney.
It is really a trade off. Owning a car in Australia can get very expensive. Housing is more expensive and the laws favor the sellers in Australia so purchasing property should be done with caution.
Private schools in Australia are very expensive they can cost as much as $25000 AUD per year
