A TikTokker revealed the traits they think makes you rich in Australia including driving a Landcruiser, and owning an iPhone in a clip that’s racked up thousands of views
A person wearing chunky black trainers by a designer brand as well as someone who attends a top university or private school could also be considered rich.
The video then shows a large double-storey modern home and finishes with a Landcruiser much like those often seen driving around affluent Aussie suburbs.
In the comments, many agreed with the ‘accurate’ observations whereas others joked they never realised they were considered wealthy.

‘POV: you’re rich everywhere,’ one person wrote and another laughed: ‘Them shoes tho’.
‘I didn’t think I was rich,’ a third commented.
‘I have that car and everyone in my family has that phone. Also I’ve got better shoes but I don’t go to private school,’ admitted a fourth.
This isn’t the first time Aussies have shared what they think makes someone rich – previously a series of clips went viral on TikTok for revealing the ‘low-key’ traits of a person has plenty of disposable income.
‘Low-key’ things that are a sign of wealth in Australia
* Flying exclusively with Qantas
* Shopping at Myer or David Jones
* Owning a fridge with an ice dispenser
* Having a dishwasher cutlery tray instead of a basket insert
* Buying lunch at a theme park instead of bringing your own
* Knowing how to ski and holidaying overseas
* Living in a two-storey house with an in-ground pool and electric gate
Podcaster Clare Stephens, 30, reminisced on the subtle things she associated with wealth as a child, including owning a fridge with an ice dispenser, shopping at Myer and flying exclusively with Qantas.
In a series of five videos, the author said she always knew a family was well off if they knew how to ski, bought lunch at a fair or theme park instead of bringing their own, or had a sign at the front door asking for shoes to be removed inside.
‘It means you’ve got nice floors or a fancy carpet,’ she added.

Ms Stephens said it wasn’t until she got to university and discovered people could ski that she realised some had very different types of holidays to the ones her family did.
Her observations about the subtle trappings of affluence Down Under, which have been viewed 378,576 times since the first video was uploaded online on Friday, sparked a wave of amusing responses.
‘Shopping at David Jones means you’re wealthy,’ one person replied.
A second said living in a two-storey house, having an electric gate, an in-ground pool or a freestanding bathtub, and holidaying overseas are all signs you’re rich.

‘When people went on holidays for leisure, and not just to visit relatives interstate,’ another noted.
Others said people who have kitchens with silver appliances instead of white or a second lounge room are ‘elite’.
One woman said she had always wished her parents would buy her more expensive ice creams at the beach.
‘Being allowed to get a Magnum rather than a Splice, Calippo or Paddle Pop,’ she wrote.
Ms Stephens shared her agreement, saying: ‘Omg YES. Magnums were premium.’
