Finding a cheap rental in Sydney’s heated market can be a tough ask—particularly if you need to be close to public transport.

Thankfully, Flatmates.com.au have made the search a little easier by combining the Sydney train map with average room rentals within 1km of each station.
Chief executive officer of Flatmates.com.au, Thomas Clement, said the maps were designed to help those looking for an affordable place close to transport connections.
“Many of those who live in share accommodation rely on public transport on a daily basis, so we wanted to create an easy to use reference for these people to find a station within budget.”
“Renting within walking distance of a train station is becoming increasingly expensive in Sydney. In Epping, for example, its costs 66% more to rent a room within 1km of the station than the suburb average.”
“The maps also show how much sharers could save by opting for a station a stop or two further out, for example those looking in Lewisham stand to save $40 per week compared with Newtown.”
Hurlstone Park was the cheapest station within 10km of the city to rent near according to the data with an average price of just $247 per week.
Croydon and Dulwich Hill Stations rounded out the cheapest three at $248 and $256 per week, respectively.
Overall, Circular Quay— not featured on the map— was the most expensive station to rent near with a whopping $547 per week average, while the cheapest was St Mary’s in Sydney’s West at just $150 per week.
