When people talk about Australian house prices, they generally talk about the average for the whole of Australia.

This figure is often irrelevant to most people, and does not give a true indication of the individual states or capital cities in Australia.

The average figures quoted are also normally the averages of both New and Established homes, and this can also create a certain amount of distortion, as many new homes are built to a very different standard to the older ones.

Here is a breakdown of the movement in Established house prices in each of some of the Australian Cities:
