The Tradie Price Index, a list compiled by ServiceSeeking.com.au which ranks tradies pay in Australia indicates that the boom in residential construction on Australia’s east coast has led to the hourly rates of tradies soaring.

In fact some tradies saw a rise of 65 per cent in their hourly rates. Here’s more from the index,

  • Victorian plumbers are the most expensive tradies in Australia, demanding an hourly average rate of $91.21. This is a rise of 21 per cent from last year.
  • Plumbers and electricians in Western Australia are the second and third highest paid, with hourly rates of $89.91 and 89.58 respectively.
  • Electricians and builders in South Australia experienced double digit increases year on year in their hourly rates.
  • The demand has soared in Brisbane where tilers are demanding 65 per cent than last year – $62.18 per hour.
