Your Cost of Living
Has Been Reduced

The average household will be $1,492 better off PER YEAR under a re-elected Marshall Liberal Government. Households are already saving over $1,000, with more savings to come.

What we said we'd do

Lower the cost of living for South Australian households and businesses.

What we've done

Just like we said we’d do, the Marshall Liberal Government has delivered lower costs for South Australian households and businesses.

Households are saving on water, electricity, emergency services levy bills and car registration. We have also doubled the value of sports vouchers, and lowered land tax for thousands of mum and dad investors.

Under Labor water and electricity bills were the highest in the country. Water bills more than doubled while the average household power bill increased by $477 in Labor’s last two years alone. In contrast, we have lowered water bills by $191 per year and electricity bills by a huge $421 per year for the average household.

After enduring massive hikes to bills under the former Labor government, families finally have a government that’s doing everything we can to put more money back into their pockets.

What we'll do

A re-elected Marshall Liberal Government will give families a $100 discount per child on public school fees.

We will also increase the value of sports vouchers from $100 to $200 per child - saving the average family another $200 per year.
