What $250 gets you in a Brisbane share house

by Flatmates Team

If value’s the name of the game, Brisbane’s share house market has you covered. Compared to its fellow eastern seaboard capitals, you can get real bang for your buck just about anywhere in Brisbane.


Wondering where you can get a room for $250 or less?
Brisbane is known for its diverse range of properties, and you’ll easily find apartments, houses and nostalgic “Queenslanders” all within the same price bracket. These five opportunities below are just the tip of the iceberg and if you shop around and use our on-site “minimum and maximum rent” search feature, you’ll find great properties for even less around Brisbane.

Icy Oasis

This private room in the heart of Bulimba is a steal at $195 per week. The beauty of this room? It has its own aircon, which is a MUST for the Brisbane heat and humidity. This neat three-bedroom townhouse is nestled in one of Brisbane’s best riverside spots. Your upstairs bedroom boasts a BIR and a sunny window to look over your new stomping ground, which has the perfect mix of fun and suburban quiet. Oxford St’s humming bars and eateries are only a short stroll away and the city is easily accessible via the CityCat ferry.

The Suite Life

If low maintenance, inner-city apartment living is for you, then so is this Newstead apartment. The property is right across the road from Gasworks – Brisbane’s premiere dining precinct – and has two bedrooms (each with its own bathroom), as well as being close to just about everything. If you’re ever home, your room has stunning views and there’s also a gym, pool and rooftop barbecue, perfect for that summer session.

Penthouse Party

Live it up in the penthouse of this New Farm apartment complex, with views of the city and a gorgeous rooftop deck to work on that tan.

Just to the north-west of the CBD, this stunner has a party vibe and boasts some of the city’s best bars and eateries nearby. Luxuriously appointed inside, the modern three-bedroom, two-bathroom home has a large rooftop deck and entertaining area, and is close to literally everything, including public transport, Suncorp Stadium and a heap of different parks. Good luck finding this much space at this price point in most other capital cities.

Puppy Love

Cool, calm and quiet, this spacious home sits on the north-side in highly-sought Newmarket. It comes with a massive backyard and your own fluffy flatmate, Lola The Staffy. It’s well positioned near the shops, cinema and public transport too. The house keeps cool in the Brisbane heat and is only $200 per week, including some bills. Good news for dog lovers, the puppy cuddles come free of charge.

Cottage Cuteness

Find your own private space in this beautiful cottage in eclectic West End. With your own separate entrance on the ground floor, you can be as social (or anti-social) as you like in this share house. The room is perfect for UQ or QUT students and is a steal at $220 per week with all bills included. You’re only a minute’s walk to West End Ferry terminal, City Glider bus, City Cycles, Orleigh Park (with free council WiFi & BBQ’s) and a 5 -10 minute walk to Hardgrave Road eateries. You’re close to everything here and only 2 minutes on the City Glider to Aldi and 5 minutes to Coles and Boundary Street pubs and restaurants.
