Finding a Home – buying or renting

In Australia, housing is rented out at a weekly rate.  So keep that in mind when looking at ads for houses and flats (apartments).  Rental properties are generally unfurnished and come with a stove but not a refrigerator or washing machine unlike in some other countries.

If you’re a student you will also find ads put up on notice boards at your university - so check these out.

Try these websites for properties for sale or rent.
