We are a family of 5. 6y,4y, and 2 years old. my husband got a scholarship to study at the University of Sydney, and we will get $8000 AUS per month + schooling fee for him and the kids + family insurance covered by the sponsor.
1- I am concerned about the cost of living, Will 8000 be ok to live in Sydney?
2- I’d also like ideas on good areas to live that would be within a 30/40 minute commute of the Uni where there would be schools along with good family housing.
I have been searching for houses that close to uni but these houses are not suitable for us at all. We prefer a nature quieter area with good houses with a garden/ backyard. we used to live in Auckland,NZ and love it there, I could not find a suburb that is the same in Sydney.
I think $900 per week for rent is a max.
Appreciate any thoughts
