Mr Lehrmann's cross-examination finished on Tuesday, before Brittany Higgins took the stand. Her examination in chief will continue on Wednesday.

Bruce Lehrmann's beachside apartment, paid for by Network Seven, is revealed

Bruce Lehrmann was forced to admit in the Federal Court on Tuesday that Network Seven agreed to cover his rent for a year, in exchange for his interviews on Spotlight.

And on Wednesday morning it was revealed that the first apartment paid for by the television network was a beachside apartment in Maroubra, in Sydney's eastern suburbs, boasting 'amazing coastal views', news.com.au reported.

According to the listing, the building was a 'brand new boutique complex comprising a mixture of three-bedroom townhouses, and two and one-bedroom apartments'.

'You will be the envy of your friends living here.'

It also featured an in-ground pool, spa, and a 'gourmet kitchen' with 'top of the range appliances', and was a stone's throw from Maroubra Beach, Mahon Pool, restaurants and cafes.

Mr Lehrmann has been moved out of the Wentworth electorate altogether and now resides in the city's northern beaches, in another property covered by Network Seven.

The weekly rent for the unit was not revealed in court, however, Lisa Wilkinson's barrister Sue Chrysanthou said she 'had the receipts' from subpoenas.

In court on Tuesday, Ms Chrysanthou asked Mr Lehrmann: 'Was it part of that agreement that you were paid for 12 months accommodation by Channel Seven?'

Mr Lehrmann replied: 'That's the only part...that's what I get.'

Ms Chrysanthou continued: 'That occurred from June 2023 and paid until June 2024?'

Mr Lehrmann said: 'Umm, well, yes. For filming in those places.'

He explained that part of the first Spotlight interview, aired on Channel Seven in June, was partly filmed in the Maroubra accommodation.

She then asked how much that was worth, but Mr Lehrmann said he didn't know because the 'network handled the accommodation arrangements'.

Brittany Higgins told the Federal Court she first met Bruce Lehrmann at a pub in Canberra, after a 45-minute chat with a colleague about her new job in Linda Reynolds' office.

She is being examined by Network Ten's barrister Matthew Collins KC about her movements in the weeks prior to March 22, 2019 - the night she alleges she was raped by Bruce Lehrmann.

Ms Higgins was invited to the Kingston Hotel on March 2, 2019, to have a conversation with her colleague Nicky Hamar about a job as an assistant media advisor for Ms Reynolds, who was the defence industry minister at the time.
