Renting in the New South Wales capital isn’t anywhere near as expensive as renting in New York or Singapore, but it’s pretty damn pricey. Just thinking about paying rent in some of Sydney’s upper market suburbs like Paddington or Pyrmont is a little painful, but hey. Someone has to do it.

But to find the perfect apartment, sometimes you’ve just got to splurge. For those with more than a little spare money in their back pocket, these rental homes are nice contenders. Here’s what you can find in Sydney, NSW for about $1,000/week today.
