Share accommodation in Australia

With a number of different highly urbanised cities to choose from, Australia has plenty of rooms for rent to offer you. It all comes down to your tastes and preference for location and flatmates. Most cities in Australia are found on the coasts, making it ideal for beach goers or those who love the ocean. If you prefer someplace away from the coast, Alice Springs may be the solution for you. It is known as the ‘biggest little town’ but nothing short on flatmates wanted. Australia is an attractive country to many from outside. Its low unemployment rate makes it ideal for young professionals, whilst its culture and strong academic credentials appeal to students. In fact, Australia is the third most popular international student destination in the world and 9th in university ranking system. Australia also ranks second highest in the human development index, meaning it ranks highly for the quality of life. Despite the fact that the cost of living in Australia may be relatively high, you can choose to share accommodation or find a flatshare to help lower the costs through flatmate finder EasyRoommate.

The more expensive cities you will find in Australia are major cities like Sydney, Perth, Melbourne, and Brisbane. Don’t let the high costs discourage you. There are always flatmates wanted in these cities. Each of these cities brings something special. Sydney, for example, is the largest city in the country but its full cultural diversity and landmarks are known around the world. Melbourne is the second largest city in Australia and is known for its fast-changing weather. Perth carries more of a beach lifestyle. But if the fast, bustling pace of the city is not for you, there is no need to worry. You’ll easily find a room for rent or a flatmate in the different suburbs located throughout the country. The quieter rural ones, like Acton Park or Oakey, provide a simpler lifestyle and one with lots of natural surroundings. Other suburbs, not necessarily quiet ones, can be found nearby or within cities like Brisbane, Launceston and Southport. These suburbs are popular locations to rent a room, with plenty of other suburbs available. You’ll also find flatmates wanted in these locations.
To young professionals, the big cities like Sydney, Melbourne and Perth are appealing because of jobs and the city lifestyle. With a large economy and a number of industries, like finance and manufacturing, Sydney has enough job prospects to make you start looking for flatmates in the inner suburbs of western Sydney, as it is the area most attractive to young professionals. Melbourne has experienced economic growth throughout the years and there are plenty of festivals to enjoy and see. Another city worth mentioning is Adelaide. This is a city growing in population, making it ideal for job opportunities, and so, flatmates wanted. Find a flatmat here and watch as the city’s potentials develop with time. The capital of Australia, Canberra, holds a low employment rate, which is also appealing to newcomers.

Australia not only caters for young professionals, but also for students from around the world. The number of students seeking to study will mean flatmates around your age who are also looking for roommates or a room for rent. The top cities students like to go to are Melbourne, Sydney, Canberra, Brisbane, Adelaide, Perth, and the Gold Coast, according to the ‘QS Best Student Cities 2016’. Melbourne has seven universities, which have received good rankings among international students. The city offers students enough things to do like live music or sports. Sydney also offers high-ranking universities and a high quality of life. Canberra has a very diverse student population, whilst Brisbane offers three major universities and a mix of urban and outdoor activities for its students. Adelaide also provides well-ranking universities and outdoor entertainment. Perth ranks 36th in Best Student cities index for culture and recreational activities, and the Gold Coast is a beach paradise with its two major universities, popular among Americans.

Students and young professionals interested in these locations will all find their ideal flatmates and rooms with the flatmate finder website EasyRoommate.
