I'm in QLD and we had to give 4 weeks bond plus 2 weeks rent. The 2 weeks rent can be used to cover the first 2 weeks rent from when you move in or keep you ahead in rent payments.

In regards to initial costs, I believe that if a property is over a certain amount per week rent can be set at what the landlord wants, not necessarily 4 weeks rent worth. I'll try and do some digging to find the info on that.

Rent in advance
The landlord/agent or the tenancy agreement cannot require you to pay more than 2 weeks rent in advance (you may choose to pay more). They cannot demand further rent until it falls due and cannot ask for a post- dated cheque.

You said you were looking at properties in NSW?
Anyway - it looks like you live in Qld so here's a link to the RTA. The type of tenancy you have dictates how much rent in advance.
