i was just on the site www.domain.com.au and i was looking at one room bedroom apartments. The pictures looked really good for paying 350-400 dollars per month. Is it possible to get a decent one room apartment in syndey for this price. i was hopeing to find an apartment where i could walk to work and in farely safe area

You need to watch out cause most apartments (esp on Domain) are unfurnished. They may have furniture in the pic but they are usually rented out unfurnished. For better listings more relevant to travellers check out http://www.gumtree.com.au.

As per Caoimhea most of these will be unfurnished.
realestate.com.au is the largest database but again, most will be unfurnished.
An apartment for $350-$400 sounds extremely cheap, you might be able to pick up a student apartment pretty cheap (these are basically a very small room with a bed, tv, kitchette and toilet) which usually come furnished but you would be looking at around $700 per month.
Happy hunting

This sounds too cheap. I reckon what they are advertising is "boarding house" type of accommodation.

Something only half decent (apartment and area) would be $700 plus per month.
