Myself and a friend have applied for a college course in WA, its looking like we will be going to college in Freemantle but more than likely having to work in Perth so can anyone suggest good areas to live inbetween the two - there will be three of us and we will be living off part time wages so looking for a nice place but not too pricey...any tips??

Also I have done a lot of research and most places say that Perth is one of the best cities in Oz for work, living expenses etc, how much would you say we would need to budget per week for food, rent etc?

Cant wait to be over there again soon

Yes, ofcourse I'm bias but perth is the best city on australia, i think safest too haha.
It's reasonably small compared to the other cities so anywhere but "south of the river" will be in your best interest, freo is great, I'm there all the time.
Can't really help in terms of places to rent but money wise I say $200p/week ontop of rent would be enough.
:) take care

Also, you should be able to find work in Fremantle, however there is a train that goes straight into the city from there, so easy.
