You can rent/lease a property through either a real estate agent or privately. Most leases in Australia are for periods of 6-12 months. A rough estimate of weekly rent is given below. This varies by city and suburb and searching for accommodation on the web should give you a good idea of what you might pay.
In addition to rent you will also be expected to pay a bond of up to 4 weeks rent up front and at least 2 weeks rent in advance. Bond is used to cover any damage that may be done to the property while you live there and if no damage is done it will be refunded when you leave.
Homestay consists of a single room in a private home where the householder often provides meals for you and you share the life of the family. Homestay can be a good way for you to improve your English, learn the culture, and meet people when you first arrive. The Australian College of Applied Psychology has teamed up with the Australian Homestay Network (AHN) to give international students the opportunity to be hosted by a specially trained AHN homestay host for their introduction to accommodation and living in Australia.
