What is a good salary range for Perth to support a small family?

I have been given an indication that a company is interested in making me an offer to relocate to Perth for a position related to Marine Cartography (Seabed Mapping). They have asked for my expected Salary range, but I am struggling with how to answer that question without knowing more about Perth. I have a wife and son. They have mentioned some relocation details for shipping household items. I would be relocating from the US. Any help is appreciated. I visited Perth back in Feb 1999 for a month and loved it. Looking forward to getting this offer.

it really is dependent on industries too, anything involved with the mining industry and you can expect a very good salary, not mentioning the additional benefits either... More
