Yes, very true.  For the Perth market alone - the one that I mainly deal in - 
you're looking at anywhere from $300/30-sec slot (Ch7 Sunrise) to 
$3000+/30-sec slot (prime time evening).  If you want a national campaign 
then you'd be paying those prices or more in each market (Sydney, Melbourne, 
etc).  For a cheaper option, you might care to try Community TV where you can 
get packages of 30+ ads for close to a couple of grand.  Another alternative 
is one of the Foxtel channels.

Potential conflict of interest note: I also produce a computer show that airs 
on Foxtel.
