Check out the au pair Facebook page in Perth for current rates.
If you use something measurable to come up with a rate it should be fair for everyone.

I would say at least $250 a week too sounds fair.

$250 a week at least sounds very fair and is quite a good deal. Surely that's a lot less than what it would cost for 3 kids in daycare or holiday care.

To me it depends on whether you'll be buying additional stuff for her - on top of her food & accom expenses. So eg, if u take her shopping and she says she likes an $60 top in Dotti, would you buy it for her?? I know if it were me I would and hence I'd only give her about $200 'pay' a week.

Having hosted au pairs, 30 hours a week I'd pay $150-$200.
In this case, being 16, I'd be inclined to offer $150/week, plus food and board. I'm sure she'll be included in other activities with the families, so will get other benefits too and shouldn't have to spend much herself.

I think her age is definitely relevant.
One other thing to factor in is free use of WIFI. For a 16year old that would add up

Yes she will be included in family activities etc and of course I would buy her things along the way. She doesn't have facebook or such and doesn't use internet so won't use wifi. She will need credit for her phone in which I will buy on occassions.
Very much looking forward to her company 😃

Since you said your eldest would have come to work with you anyway, can you still do that and she'll only be left with 2 kids?.
I wouldn't factor in the cost of the airfare, she's coming down primarily to babysit your kids.
