Not sure on accurate numbers, and I stand to be corrected, but I think it's in the 140ish region. This is obviously tax free.

With the salarys in Oz offshore where they are now, you would have to seriously question whether the aggro (travelling, living in a dump, being shot at/kidnapped etc) would be worth the extra coin.

Cheers
