Hello!! We are planning a move to the Perth area January 2012. I was wondering if someone could answer a question for me. What are the utility costs like in that area? Gas, water, power, cable, phone, etc. Oh, also, will we need heat in the winter? Most of the housing we have looked at all has A/C, but I'm wondering if heat is needed. Winter lows of 10-20C through the winter, says to me... HEAT!! What do you think? Thank you!

Gas 10.74 cents per unit Electric 18.93 cents per unit Water has a scale - up to 150kl 10 cents per KL I'm just reading this from the back of my bills, but I think you can just go to the web sites and get more of an idea Cable, I think you mean Foxtel - have a look at their web site for the various different packages - Hope all this helps
