So renting in Sydney is, well, expensive. Damn expensive tbh.
Anyone looking for a place will attest to this, as will those who already outlay large chunks of hard-earned cash for a roof over their head.

While sharing is still the only affordable option left, data shows it’s not as cheap as it once was in Australia’s biggest city.
Average room prices based on listings created this year show that 63 Sydney suburbs now have an average asking price of over $300 per week. Yikes.
