I think assuming that a landlord might be luxuring in air con and refusing same to tenants just because they can is quite possibly assuming too much in these very uncertain times.

Installing air conditioner in a rental property
I was heavily pregnant last summer and had been renting the house for 6 years. We asked for air con for me, but mainly for once bub was born... They said, 'No. But if you want to install it yourself that's fine, but you need to pay for it and leave it when you go, or take it with you' I mean WTF?! Give you air con in your place for free, or put a massive hole in the wall, and then patch it when we take it with us?! Crazy talk!
We got a portable one and it works great. Mines a little noisy though but cools our lounge dining n kitchen well like pp said, just needs to be near a window.

Just my opinion of course and a huge sweeping generalization
That being said they can always increase the rent if need be

I don't think air conditioning is a necessarily a necessity (just going back to the I bet the landlord has air conditioning comment). I'm sure there are plenty of areas in Australia where I don't think heating and airconditioning are essential.
In response to the OP....we installed 4 airconditioners in a property at the request of a tenant (the property had been tenanted by others for 10 years prior without the issue being raised). In short, I regret it. The area the property is in is quite temperate without humidity and the tenants left 6 months later.

Re: Installing air conditioner in a rental property
I'd love to ask for air con but I've already been waiting 6 months to get a broken dishwasher either fixed or removed!!
