North of the bridge is expensive, so cut that all out now! - unless you go two hours North, and forget the beaches, Really forget them.
Rentals in the South west around East Hills or in the Rockdale area go from around au $400 to au $800 a week. (Still not cheap).
Parramatta to Penrith to the West has some really cheap places.
If you go past Pendle hill its even cheaper, but you get what you pay for. It becomes rougher.
Blacktown rentals for three bedroom houses are $300-$400 per week.
Places Like Kensington, Kingsford, Randwick and Maroubra are inexpensive and safe-ish. These are also close to a university These are about 20 minutes bus ride to Sydney central and for a bonus they arere close to the beach! Rooms go for $150 per week and three bedroom places$450.
