With its breathtaking harbour vistas, pleasant weather, and beautiful beaches, Sydney is Australia's most spectacular city. It is one of the best cities in the world to live in. There's every reason to consider a visit—or maybe a move—to this year-round, sunny seaside jewel, which was recently ranked as the fifth most liveable city in the world by The Global Liveability Index 2018. In this bustling city on the coast, there is a lot of culture, history, and fun to be found. You will definitely fall in love with this beautiful city the moment you see its stunning beaches and iconic landmarks. 

Best Places to Live in Sydney

Sydney buzzes with student-friendly neighbourhoods and nice areas to live in. The city offers a distinctive vibe in each of its suburbs. With different options of eateries, bars, markets, and other facilities in each and every suburb, you’ll surely be spoiled for choice when it comes to choosing a place and student accommodation. Choose your student housing in Sydney from our several student accommodations options: 

Darlington

This neighbourhood is perfect for the University of Sydney students as it is located right next to its main campus. Darlington is famous for being a student-friendly area with lots of cafes, restaurants, and farmer markets to choose from. It lights up on the weekends with all the exciting places you can go to. Also, there are several options for Darlington student accommodation options you can choose from, including Scape Abercrombie and Scape at University of Sydney.

Haymarket 

Haymarket is a suburb of Sydney, New South Wales. It is home to Sydney’s vibrant Chinatown, with its variety of sushi bars, classic Cantonese eateries, and Korean BBQ joints. The University of Sydney and the University of Technology Sydney are located nearby, so the area is a good choice for students of the two respective universities. Some of our Haymarket student accommodation options are Scape Darling House and Scape Darling Square. Both student accommodations come with all the amenities you need. 

Cost of Living in Sydney

The general living expense in Sydney, as declared by the Australian Government, is  $21,041 per year. A survey revealed that most international students spend between $20,000 and $27,000 per year. However, this differs, as it depends on the living arrangements and personal choices of each student.

Transportation in Sydney

With an efficient network of transport options, getting around in Sydney is easy and affordable. You can take your pick among extensive networks of trains, buses, ferries, and light rail. All you need to do to take advantage of the accessible transport system in Sydney is buy an Opal card with daily and weekly caps, which can be used for all of Sydney’s public transport. The bus service is very comprehensive, covering almost all of the city with a dedicated regional service taking you to the Blue Mountains from Eddy Avenue, outside Central Station. The best thing about the city is that it’s also bicycle-friendly for those who prefer taking in the city from their bikes with kerbside bike lanes.

Student Life in Sydney

Sydney is one of the best destinations for international students, not only for hosting some of the most well-known educational institutions and universities, but also for its beautiful beaches, natural scenery, welcoming culture, and friendly areas. As an international student, you are guaranteed to have fun in Sydney. 

Attractions in Sydney

Sydney Opera House

A UNESCO World Heritage Site, the Sydney Opera House, with its unique shape similar to perching on a finger of land surrounded by water, is one of the greatest icons in the world. It’s the highlight attraction overlooking Sydney’s stunning harbour. Make sure you take one of its organised tours through all its theatres, studios, exhibition rooms, concert hall, and cinema. Afterwards, you can relax at one of the many restaurants or snap pictures at Mrs. Macquarie's Chair.

The Royal Botanic Garden

If you’re looking to escape the bustle of the city and relax at the end of a week full of assignments and long lectures without going too far, the Royal Botanic Garden is the place to be. Established in 1816, the garden occupies an impressive space of 30 hectares filled with palm groves, orchids, ferns, and gardens with all kinds of trees. It’s one of the best free places to visit in Sydney with its 1800 roses in the Palace Rose Garden and tropical foliage, begonias, and orchids in the Glasshouse, Latitude 23, and Fernery.
