    Just got our rates notice today for our Townsville property. $2185 for 6 months but it does include water and will be reduced to $2001 with a pay on time discount.

    Still it's $4000 a year which seems a lot higher than most of the rates amounts others have mentioned. One of the joys of a remote location.

But I bought into real estate in 1999 before everything went nuts with prices and made a lot of $$ on an investment property which I then sold for a truck load and I bought the place I'm in now 6yrs later which is twice the size and a big family home

    Im in SA, our rates are based on house value and vary based on how greedy the council is. I pay $2600/ year in a greedy council, on a house valued at $385,000. I also pay around $1400 for water.

    ETA - that's $4000 all up. We are not in a remote location, just a mid-range outer suburb, we have an 800sqm property, a septic tank in the backyard, & no hard rubbish collection - we have to pay to take any hard rubbish to the dump. They do collect our rubbish bin weekly though.

    So is the Adelaide Hills (greedy). But I guess having all the million dollar mansions nearby means that us with normal houses pay less. Lucky you buying in 1999 in Adelaide. Before the boom. We're not in our forever home yet, probably not for a while

    My house is an hour north of Brisbane and rates are about $1200/ year. Large block on outskirts of town. Water is billed separately and is also about $1200/year plus usage.
