Hi, Housing varies according to the suburb, services in the area, transport, distance from city and metropolitan centres, size and condition of the house/ unit.I guess a home unit could vary from $400 to $1500 per week, location and condition.

be more specific

As Mike said, for us to help with advice you really need to be more specific.

How long are you planning to stay? If it's a short time then you'll need to stay in a hotel or hostel because to rent an apartment or house requires a longer lease. If you plan to stay longer then the rental will very enormously depending on location, quality, type, size. You'll get some rental rates from

Transport costs depend entirely on where you're travelling from and to and which method you choose - ferry, taxi, bus, train, tram.

As Mike and Colin pointed out, it depends on where you live what the costs are.

Transport costs near the CBD is nto expensive, but the further you head away from the CBD, the more expensive it gets.

Most Expensive Areas = CBD, Eastern Suburbs, Lower North Shore, Inner West.
Mid Expensive Areas = Upper North Shore, Northern Beaches, Southern Suburbs.
Least Expensive Areas = Western Suburbs.

It also depends on the type of accomodation too, as there can be cheap rentals in the expensive areas.

Travel Tips for Sydney

Go and check out the sights,...

by welshwonder

Go and check out the sights, play with the kangaroos at the featherdale wildlife park(blacktown way) get pissed in the aquarium bar in coogee over looking the beach (sunday afternoons)The blue mountains are amazing too, apparently it took the first convicts 25 yrs to get across them ad they thought that freedome was on the other side. You can check them out by sky rail which gives you the most amazing views or take the steepest train in the world, which i thought was going to be like a fairground ride but only lasted a couple of minutes. Doing a skydive over the Hunter Valley, it was 14,000ft and excellent views.(and the wine tasting afterwards!) or Christmas day on the beach

Sydney Tower

by dragontml

The Sydney Tower experience takes you a staggering 250 metres above Sydney, commanding breathtaking views of one of the most beautiful cities in the world, including the Harbour Bridge and Opera House. From the beaches to the mountains, you’ll be amazed at what you can see from the highest point in town.

Circular Quay, Opera House, Botanic gardens

by SydneyGal

Kill a couple of hours by taking a walk from Circular Quay, around the Opera House and the Botanic Gardens. Beautiful Gardens, great photo opportunities around here. You could lie in the gardens for a few hours and bask in the sun (as many people do). Walk all the way up to Mrs Macquaries Chair (pic left), a carved rock ledge seat where Elizabeth Macquarie, the Governor’s wife, liked to sit and watch the harbour. Harbour panorama from here.

Australia Day Ferry Race

by lachydragon

This is an annual event that has been the centrepiece of my family's Australia Day events for many years. Basically the inner-harbour ferries get decorated with their sponsors logos and balloons etc and have a small race up the harbour with a huge flotilla of little spectators vessels, harbour-cruise boats, mulit-million dollar yachts, kayaks and family dinghys. Living in the inner suburbs of Sydney, the harbour holds a special place in my heart and the ferry race captures the fun and life of the harbour!

Good vantage points are along the harbour beaches between the Harbour Bridge and Bradley's Head (where the ferrys turn aorund and return down the harbour) - bring a picnic rug some cold meats and a bottle of champagne and make it a real Australia Day on the harbour!!

Packing List

by Alphons

Bring your backpack with you, in Sidney there is a lot to see. You can spend the whole day in Sidney, so you can take some drink and food in your backpack. Hiking shoes is also a very good plan to bring with you to Sydney. Especialy when you wil visit The Blue Mountains.
