I got our bill yesterday which was $460 which is exceptionally high. I called them and thankfully due to the smart meter the guy had estimated it because their records didn't show we had a smart meter. Lucky I rang and have since found out on FB several other friends also had the same issue!
Mostly it's $300 - $360
Our house is 28m2
4 bedrooms plus study and 3 living areas. Open plan living which means you can't just heat or cool 1 room.
No air con - we run fans which is 1 cent per hour.
Ducted heating - heating makes all the difference.
TV is on most the day and my music
My hubby does our washing and against my protest puts most of it in the dryer. So bloomin lazy!!

We pay $50fn ... so around $300pq. We are only ever in credit by a couple of dollars.
That's just DH & I at the moment... baby on the way. I am home almost all the time, had the air con runnning alot over Summer (even when it wasn't that hot!) and EVERYTHING is electric, no gas. TV or music is on most of the time, frog heater always plugged in. We leave a light on every night too. I turn most things off at the point though. We have a combustion heater so hopefully it shouldn't go up at all over Winter!!

Hold on to your seats ladies because if you were giving a prize away for the highest bill I think I would win . Ours for the last 61 days was $1100.
There are only 2 of us in a very large new home (650 sqm) we r Also supplying a below ground pool and a cool room. We have had the air con on most days but not all day as we both work.
It has definitely increased dramatically for the same time last year (that bill was about $900)
And we are conscious about our energy use.

Our bills were NEVER over $250 for a quarter but the last few have been between $750-$900 we have had ridiculously massive price jump on power in Tassie.
That's for 3 people in a 3x1 open plan 2 story house 100% wood floors
Me and DD are home all day and the tvs nearly always on.

It used to be $1200 per quater for a 2 bedroom villa.
It's now about $550 for a 5 bedroom house per quater.
Where I usually live it's a 2 bedroom unit about $450 per quater.

i cant use hot water in my washign machine either anymore but we have loads of showers each day too so i dunno if that helped at all. i rarely use my kettle as i dont drink coffee at all.
my phone is generally always charging because it goes flat so fast too so it has been confused as to how its so low. waiting on next bill which is due to be checked now to see if its about the same. the numbers on the meter havent changed all that much so we will see.
