“Average monthly spending was highest in Sydney, marginally ahead of Victoria,” says NAB. “Perth was next, followed by Brisbane, Adelaide and Hobart.
“Average spending was lowest in Darwin, which was also the only metro area where spending was lower than year earlier levels.”
In regional areas, the average amount spent in the March quarter stood at $1,947, an increase on the $1,886 average spent year on year.
NAB says the report doesn't include items such as government services, tax payments, mortgage and other credit facility repayments.
