All travellers must now pay for flights in Australia’s biggest cities
The Federal Government has banned travel to more than 20 cities in the lead-up to the Commonwealth Games, and some airlines are also barring passengers from visiting major Australian cities.
The Commonwealth Games are set to begin in Melbourne on August 6, but with many of the major events already taking place, many travellers are facing a travel headache.
Here’s a guide to what you need to know about the Commonwealth games.
Australia’s top five cities are Melbourne, Brisbane, Perth, Adelaide and Hobart.
Melbourne is the largest city in Australia, with a population of more than 18 million.
There are about 4,500 hotels in Melbourne, and the city is home to some of the most popular beaches in the country.
It has a population density of more a quarter-million people, making it one of the biggest cities in Australia.
Australia’s largest city, Sydney, has a city population of around 8,000.
Brisbane has about 3,400 hotels and restaurants.
Perth has about 2,400 people and is the second-largest city in the state after Brisbane.
Geraldton has about 1,600 people and has the third-largest population in Australia behind Melbourne and Brisbane.2.
Australia has the second most expensive hotel room in the world.
According to the Sydney Morning Herald, Sydney is the most expensive city in Europe with a $7,000 (US) price tag.
Abercrombie & Fitch’s Sydney property is listed for $11,300 (AU$14,000).3.
Australia is the third most expensive country to live in.
Dublin is the world’s third-most expensive city, with an average price of $8,200 per person per night, according to the Financial Times.4.
More than 90 per cent of Australians are in poverty.
Almost 90 per,000 people live in poverty in Australia according to an OECD report, and it’s estimated that the country has a poverty rate of nearly 40 per cent.
In 2017, almost 9 million Australians were in poverty, according the ABS.5.
A study from the University of Queensland found that a quarter of Australian people are now living on less than $1.25 a day, which is the equivalent of $1,600 (US$2,500).
In 2018, there were almost 20,000 more Australians living in poverty than at the end of 2018.6.
Australia still hasn’t achieved full citizenship.
Since becoming an independent country, Australia has been struggling to become fully a full country.
It’s currently only able to become a full member of the European Union in 2019.
But that’s not stopping the Government from pushing ahead with plans to allow Australians to become citizens in 2019, and possibly even citizenship by 2050.
We’ll have more to share about the future of citizenship in Australia in the coming weeks.
