Australia Rooms for Rent

Rooms to rent in Australia by city.

Finding a room to rent in cities in Australia can be just as difficult when you're older. And the cost of living is also encouraging home owners to think about earning a little extra income, as well as have a bit of company.

The site Cohabitas has been used by many expats and international travellers coming to the UK (see Libby's story below), but can also be used to find rooms in house shares in Australia, as well as by expats or international travellers living in Australia.

If there are no rooms in an area, then you can also look for a like-minded housemate for a buddy-up, to start a new houseshare in your area. Add a listing to encourage others to register too, so start a local interest group.

It's Better Living Together

Cohabitas started in London in 2017 offering the over 40s an easier way to rent a room in a shared house, or to find people for a buddy-up in a new house share with other like-minded over 40s. The site now covers the whole of the UK and selected cities in Europe, Australia and the US.

Join a community of like-minded senior house sharers. You can find out a little more about us.
