Even if you blow your savings over the holidays, you could live in a farmhouse with lots of land for $1 a week. It's the rent that Trundle, Australia, is charging for seven fixer-uppers in a bush town that is somewhat of a fixer-upper as well.

Struggling with drought and an exodus of banks and families, Trundle came up with the Trundle Tree Change enticement to bring the place back to life. A "tree change" is Aussie slang for picking up and moving to the country.
