In Australia, as in many countries, buying in bulk is much more cost efficient. Given that Australia's alcohol taxes are amongst the world's highest, coupled with an insatiable thirst for the beverage (Australia's beer consumption is also among the highest in the world), the cost of this favourite 'bevvy' is a common point of discussion. Beer brands of course range in price, and can have up to a A$20 price difference between them. Nonetheless, state taxes and resellers' mark-ups mean that prices range across the country. This FACT indicates the average cost of a carton of full strength beer (ie. 24 x 375ml bottles) in each Australian capital city in 2011. The country's most expensive beer is found in Darwin, where a case on average costs $48.09. The city with the cheapest average carton price is Sydney, with $39.92
Please note that these prices exclude promotional prices and specials, and, while there are other online 'indexes' that estimate the price of beer based on an average of user responses, here the most official count from the Australian Bureau of Statistics has been used.
This FACT indicates the proportion of cargo (tonnes) per 100,000 people loaded as a result of importing and exporting in each Australian city. This data is represented in thousands. The city with the highest number is the Perth with 1,795,400 tonnes. The city with the lowest number is Sydney with 549,340 tonnes.
Number of admissions from waiting lists for plastic and reconstructive surgery per 100,000 persons (Regional)
This FACT indicates the number of admissions from waiting lists for plastic surgery per 100,000 persons in each state between 2016 and 2017. Hospital admissions for elective surgery in Australia have increased over the last few years by as much as 2% each year on average. The state/territory with the highest admission per 100,000 persons is Tasmania at 383.36. The state/territory with the lowest is New South Wales at 130.91
This FACT indicates how frequently taxis are used as a method of transport for travelling to work, per 100,000 people in each Australian capital city for the year 2016. The city with the highest number is Hobart with 340 per 100,000 people. The city with the lowest is Perth with 205 per 100,000 people.
This FACT indicates the total number of restaurants that are listed within the Yellow Pages in each Australian city per 100,000 persons. It excludes fast food restaurants and function centres. Note that not all restaurants are listed in public listing directories, so the information presented here should be taken as a general guide to numbers rather than a complete set of statistics. However, while there are no exact figures on the number of restaurants and eateries operating in each city, the disparity in numbers shown here affords an interesting point for discussion. According to the Yellow Pages listings in March 2018, Canberra has the highest number of restaurants, at 267.30 per 100,000 persons. Brisbane, on the other hand, has the lowest proportion, at 78.43 restaurants per 100,000 persons.
