I suppose it wouldn't hurt to start looking for a place now on the internet, but I would much prefer to actually see a property before I decided on it. Owners/agents sometimes also like to meet prospective tenants before they let the place to them.

I would get something temporary for the first few days/weeks and then start looking when you get here.

I would also suggest asking the university to see what information they can provide.

I am not sure what you mean by this. You will need to check local papers when you get here and visit real estate agents when you get here. Most property owners use realestate agents to manage their properties and you might not ever see the owner.

Sorry, I am not even in Australia right now, so I can't do anything to help.

I am pretty sure your best resource for information will be fellow international students when you arrive here. Also I am pretty sure QUT has an Indian club/society that can offer support.

I think here would be a good place to start your search for accommodation:
