It's really just the fact that your minimum wage is over $15/hr. This drives the cost of everything up. Even though your AU dollar is worth slightly more than a US dollar, Australians have more money, so their cost of living goes up. It's that "invisible hand" of the supply and demand interaction at work here. It's also another reason why raising the minimum wage doesn't really help anybody in the long run, but that's political and not for here.
