Hey Steph, i've attached some links. My best advice would be to attend your local Housing office early in the morning (though on Wednesdays they are closed until 1pm I think) and speak with someone about going on a waiting list. There are big waiting lists in most areas but it is worth a try. Have you applied for rent assistance through centerlink? as this may also help you to secure something bigger for you and bubs. best of luck x
I did a paper on this for uni and found that the average wait for public housing is 2 years, unless you were to qualify for emergency housing which, for the most part, is only short-term.

Hopefully you'll be lucky though!
