The visa bureau we used plus visa all came to aboutt 3000 pounds

Police certificates and fingerprints - add 200 pounds

English test for myself and wifey - 150 pounds

Plane tickets for 5(one way) - 2400 pounds (cheapest tickets we could find)

One 22 foot container - 3300 pounds

Customs fees in Australia - 400 pounds

Furniture rental for 5 weeks(minimal) 1200 pounds

Miscelaneous things like car licence transferral - 200 pounds

I cant remember anythign else atm.
