What state are you in? This will inform Flatchatters of the applicable legal process. Also, what is the basis of your tenancy? Current lease expiring soon? Or a long time until expiry? Or a month to month tenancy?
It is important to know this for fellow Flatchatters to frame an appropriate response.
For example: Are you on a lease that is expiring in four weeks? If so and the notice was properly served then you may not have any options but to leave.
Regardless of your situation, talk to the REA. If they consider you a good tenant then they will probably want to retain you and may offer other premises on their books. After all they will know how you treat the residence and whether or not you pay rent in a timely manner etcetera.
Your local tenant’s union will also be able to provide advice.

REA = real estate agent. For your tenants’ union, go to tenants.org.au and that will take you to your state’s TU website. There you will find all the information you need as well as emergency numbers to call .
