Hey guys,

Would love your help. We are planning to move over to sydney Jan/Feb 2007 and wish to stay there for upto 3 years or so. What are the cool areas to live in and around Sydney? We are a couple in our late 20's. Thank you!!!!

hey
it really depends on what your looking for.
if money is going to be a big issue rent seems to get cheaper the further west you go.
that being said, if your politically minded or into live music etc (not that one has anything to do with the other) suggest trying somewhere in the innercity like newtown or annandale.
crows nest area is great - 10 mins to the city and very cafe society. so you could ty the areas around there like Wollstonecraft and waverton and greenwich, st Lenoards etc.
if you want beaches try coogee or maroubra or manly or bondi....
the great thing about renting in sydney is that you can get short leases which means if you move somewhere n hate it you can simply pack up and move to a different spot till you find one that suites you.
either way ur gonna have fun :)
