Getting accomodation in Sydney was a pain when i went there last time,so i would suggest to book well in advance in friends apartments for the same before you land there.
And its too costly too.A decent 2bhk 2 bath apartment will be 500$ AUD per week rent in Paramatta area (desi area)which is two train stops away from Lidcom (olympic park) and around 45-60 mins away from Sydney CBD.

Well, from what I've seen it is ofcourse a pain to find a decent acco in Sydney and you need some luck to get one. Fortunately I was lucky and was able to find one decent apartment on the day of my arrival itself. Yeah, it's a bit costly, but provides all the facilities and the apartment in itself is pretty spacious and airy.

For people who might visit this thread in search of acco, the following are the sites that you could look at for pointers for accomodation in sydney and for other needs.

realestate.com.au
sydney.gumtree.com.au
131500.com.au

P.S: Be wary with Indian agents here, have heard of instances where people have been duped with false information by them.

Default Relocating to Sydney

Hi All,

I will be moving to Sydney next month - alone initially and family will join later. I need help in understanding expenses there on school fees and home rent.

1. We are a family of 4 - husband wife and 2 kids aged 10 and 4. A 2-bed acco should suit us well. Which areas should I look at with a budget of 1600 a month (~350AUD a week)?

2. Can I use my Sharp TV, Siemens washing machine there? Are the appliances specs compatible there?

3. Since I will be moving alone initially, how much would a sharing acco cost close to the CBD?

4. What are the realistic spends on commuting (public transport)?

5. How much should I set aside for utilities like electricity, gas and other essentials?

6. Most important, what fees do schools charge? My visa is a 457 temp. When do the school terms start?

Would be grateful if any Sydney members or Aus members can help.
