Rentals here are so expensive! We have lots of defence families/members in our building. I'd say about 30%. We mostly have 2br apartments though. Some 3br on the top floor, but we don't have a lift. So it's 3 floors of stairs up to the top :/
Are you just looking in Gunghalin? I'm sure there are other members who can give you the low down on other Canbo suburbs if you need! How stressful! Don't you have a newborn?
Unfortunately it is a very tight rental market here and rent is ridiculous for what you get. Our market is pushed up because of the apparent high wages that are inflated by a small portion of the population.

We are likely to be a one car family next year so looking at places within a 2km walk of the school. Otherwise we will have to change schools if we don't find a house in the area b
I have heard how expensive it is to not only rent but buy in Canberra too. I don't even know how RA works when it comes to expensive areas to live, could imagine it would still cost a fortune 😁 I hope for your sake, something pops up last minute. Houses usually come online at 2-3am if you continue to check.

It can be extremely overwhelming when you are first starting out, look up some fb pages where other defence spouses can give you a heads up on everything you need to do.
