How much is your bill? Does it come in every 3 months?
Mine is around $800 to $1000 and it drives me nuts!!!!
Any tips on how to get it down?

Our last one was $1100 Every other power and water bill has been between 600 and 800. We live in the NT and it has been disgustingly hot so lots of aircon... but we have decided to go back to keeping the aircon on 24 with the fan on if needed ( this is what they suggest anyway) Its just me dh and our 6 month old. We dont use a drier, we were however accidently leaving the hot water switch on all day every day as we didnt realise.
ETA. We get a bill every 3 months with a month or less to pay it ( I think). We are also only allowed one extension to pay every 12 months

4 people, 4bed,2bath,dbl garage.
$298 per quarter and we live in cairns.
Aircon on only if needed, I usually suffer thru the day without it and turn it on when the kids get home if it's a really hot day. (37+)
Don't use a dryer.
Fans and lights off if not in room.

Electricity ranges from $250 to $350 for 3 months. And gas is no more than $150 every 3 months. We built and it came with energy efficient things. Like light globes and water saving showers etc.
We have yet to put air con in but do run fan's all day. Turn everything off at the sockets. It saves us heaps. Even the microwave overnight!

We are in NSW, family of 5. Just got our bill last week and it was $288 and gas (hot water + hot plates on stove + fireplace) was $100.
We don't have air-con but use the fans a lot and have a small extra bar fridge.

This is exactly why we put solar in!!
We're in perth and would easily pay $400+ in the winter quarter and around $200 the other quarters.
Since putting the solar panels in we only paid $200ish during the winter and we've got credit the other quarters.
I know its alot on money to get it installed but there are payment plans and in the long run its gona save you HEAPS. Even if you just switch to solar hot water, i think you can get a system installed for about $1000.
