Hey folks! It’s Georgia, the blogger for the Furnished Property website. I’ve just come back from a week in Melbourne, and I had an absolute blast! So I thought I’d let you guys know where are the best places to go with some friends, flatmates, or that special someone to have a great time.


WARNING: This article is super-long, but chock-full of great tips. Stay with us!


Do you and your flatmates want things to do in Sydney?

May 28, 2010

Are you new to your Furnished Apartment in Sydney?

One thing you may not know yet is that Sydney has great music. Whether you and your flatmates like your music live and loud or soft and sultry, there’s a show out there for you. And usually it’s pretty cheap! Prices for quality live music shows and club nights in Sydney usually start as low as $10. So whip out your diaries – here are the details of some of the best musical nights out on offer in the coming months…


INDIE ROCK: Dappled Cities @ Manning Bar

THE BAND: Dappled Cities are one of Sydney’s best indie-rock exports. They’ve toured Australia, New Zealand, the UK and the US extensively, and they’ve helped to make the Sydney indie scene what it is today.

If you haven’t already heard these guys, check out the sound (and their awesome video clip!) here:
