New data has put another line under how much renters are struggling around the country, with those doing it toughest putting more than 40 per cent of their income towards the rent.
Suburbtrends' September "Rental Pain Index" also found that many renters around the country had faced rent rises of over 10 per cent in the past 12 months.
The index scores suburbs from one (great!) to 100 (move out) based on factors including average rent rises, average amount of income towards rent, and rental vacancies in an area.
Here, counting down, are Australia's 25 most painful suburbs to be renting in.
