hiya, im going to be in sydney for christmas and new years, i only decided recently to go so i dont have any accomadation sorted. my friend is planning on staying and working there so she is hoping to get an apartment, does anyone know of an agency or a specific building that we should check out when we get there?
otherwise we will be paying through the nose for a shitty hostel or sleeping on the streets.
Normally, I would say that the Tourist Info at Sydney's Kingston Smith airport are very good. My partner arrived there with no accommodation booked for her and the 2 kids, and they sorted her out quickly.
However, I suspect it will be very busy for Xmas, so you might be better booking in advance.
Try the Waldorf Metro Apartments (South Sydney) which are not as expensive as "Waldorf" makes them sound, particularly if you are sharing.
i guess i'm in the same boat as you, a good site i have found is www.domain.com.au. you have advertisements there for buying, renting and sharing houses and apts in sydney or wherever. worth checking it out.
hope it helps
