    Ok nor near the beach...

    May I suggest Scarborough , Trigg, Hillary's, they are a little bit more expensive though. Or you could go further out to places like Heathridge, Joondalup or even further away to places like Quinn's Rock or Clarkson. All newer brick homes.. Lots of parks in all those suburbs.

    Rent is expensive here.

    Trigg is extremely expensive. Scarborough is too these days unless you want to live in a shoe box. You could try innaloo maybe. But heading much further north is likely to be better.

    Default Perth primary schools

    No knowledge of the schools but check out areas such as Clarkson, Tapping, Bulter, Brighton, Banksia Grove, Quinn's Rocks, Carramar,Heathridge, Beldon, Edgewater..all within 15 mins Joondalup, some 5 min from beach some 20 mins, various schools, Lots of new estates and you will find rentals you can afford.

    All new estates have lovely park areas, close to shopping centres, close to public transport, and under an hour to the city.

    I live past Quinn's Rocks so I know all these areas and have family living in some so you are welcome to pm me with any questions

    mullaloo is NOR and beachside, but not sure on pricing, also areas like Duncraig, Carine, Craigie etc....but not sure on pricing.

    ETA - quick trip to Domain shows me a number of rentals 3-4beds in Beldon, Craigie, Heathridge, Kallaroo, Ocean Reef for under $450/w

    Further inland would be areas like Ellenbrook.....

    apologies if I'm way off the mark.

    It depends on what you call a newish house. I have had people come from east and say everything is so new compared to over there. A house we would consider old (30+ years) they considered quite new.

    Geez I haven't been in the rental market for a couple years, well almost 10. last time I paid rent it was around 150 a week. Times have changed.

    Mandurah area has a pretty big fifo community though. They also have a couple charter buses that do the airport run. Schools aren't too bad.

    I'm in Craigie which is 10mins from Joondalup. Half hour from the city. 5 mins from the beach and walking distance to major shopping centers, doctors etc. I love my kids school and there's also a few others near by.

    A 3 or 4 bedroom house around here is anywhere between $400 and $450. Have a look on realestate.com.au. Maybe type in Joondalup and check surrounding suburbs and you'll get a decent idea of rental prices.

    We have some friends renting in Mullaloo, 4x2 with a pool for $640!! Crazy money...
    A huge problem is the shortage of rentals, which makes it a bit more difficult..
    Good luck

    Yeah we are trying to get one for $400. We are hoping we can, as we don't really want to pay more then this when we first move over.

    Thank you all for your help! It's been really helpful so far.

    As sad as it is, they really do mean it when they say it's almost the same amount to repay a mortgage as pay rent in Perth. For your price you're looking at NOR, like Merriwa, Quinns Rock or down to almost Bunbury, though have noticed some in , Mandurah, Waikiki and Rockingham that fit that price range.
    Otherwise you are heading inland to places like Middle Swan.

    I can't recommend any of the schools, but can recommend checking out the school's websites (not school's online but the actual school's website if they have one) and look at any of the children in the photos. Happy kids learn better....

    In the suburb we currently live you can't rent a house for less then $400 a week, you could maybe find one old, small and run down place for $400. Most Are $450+

    For a unit it's around $370+ but they don't have any yard at all.

    It's insane the cost of rent!!
