Finding a sense of community and connection in a neighbourhood is key – especially when you plan to commit to a 6 or 12-month tenancy agreement.

To make sure you’re happy with the suburb, you can now try out your neighbourhood before you sign the dotted line – just like test-driving a car.

How do I try a new suburb?

You can book a short Airbnb stay through using the search bar on the homepage.

The search bar will link you to accommodation options around Australia through Airbnb. This is designed to help you experience the area as locals do before you sign up to rent.

  1. Enter the name of the suburb you’re interested in trying out.
  2. Click Search

  1. You’ll be re-directed to Airbnb to view all listings in that suburb. Then it’s as simple as checking in!
