Australia is more expensive for many, many reasons. The main few are high rents, high minimum wages & conditions, GST, crazy high duties on imports, and we are a small p!ss ant country far away from anywhere.

It's not as though retailers are putting a huge mark up on everything, it's just the wholesale price from the above factors make everything more expensive. It's the price we pay for living in a great country.
