When you first arrive in Australia you will probably choose to rent a property. This process is reasonably straightforward. The cost of accommodation in Australia – relative to one’s salary and other living expenses – is usually very reasonable. Shared housing is also a popular option and there are numerous websites that are exclusively devoted to providing listings for room rentals in shared houses.

The standard of accommodation in Australia varies from area to area, but is generally very high. It is not at all uncommon for houses in Australia to boast family-friendly features, such as garages, large gardens, and swimming pools.

For students most schools and universities provide students with on and off campus housing solutions that are specifically available and suited to international students.
