|Moving out can be a great opportunity to meet new people but it can also be an expensive headache. Like all countries there are opportunists all too willing to take advantage of people who don’t know better. But with a little homework, about where you want to live, who with and what you’re responsibilities and rights are, all should go smoothly.

|High End Accommodation
You will pay a premium price at these locations. Having said that the first three offer very high standards of living (can I come live with you?).
The accommodation at Allan Street is “cosy” to put it nicely BUT they do 6 dinners per week and take care of all your bills. Although pretty expensive, you move in and you’re totally sorted. See the pics and look at their web sites for more details.
If you want to look for better value options (but more legwork) check out these Australia wide links. Both offer extensive options for both renting and share accommodation.
