Tasmanian houses renting for $1 a week
AN Australian town is offering houses to rent for $1 a week. The prospective tenants must have kids, the younger the better, which will help to save its comunity and its tiny school.
The small rural community of Levendale, 45km northeast of Hobart, is renovating vacant farmhouses to breathe new life into the fading hamlet.
Sick and tired of sitting back and watching their town fade away as farmers desert the region because of drought and other economic problems, locals have taken matters into their own hands.
