Surry Hills (NSW) is the most popular share accommodation suburb in Australia according to latest data released by Flatmates.com.au.
The inner-city Sydney suburb beat out equally trendy centres Newtown (NSW) and Fitzroy (VIC) to be named the most sought after area to look for a home.
Tourist hotspot Bondi (NSW) and culturally diverse Richmond (VIC) rounded out the top five suburbs respectively.
The results, based on over 60,000 room wanted profiles, totalled the number of people looking in each suburb of Australia.
General Manager of Flatmates.com.au, Thomas Clement said Surry Hills was a popular place to look due to its proximity to transport hubs, universities and the Sydney CBD.
“The area also has a large number of terrace homes, which are popular for those in looking to share a place. Add to the mix a major transport hub and you have the perfect location for students, travellers and professionals.”
