Sydney is a surprisingly popular tourist spot. It is ranked in the top ten most liveable cities in the world. And it is extremely popular with visiting students. The housing prices are fairly high, but they is of little concern for visitors. There is plenty to see and do.
- Sydney CBD. A fine place to stay because it is near many of the city attractions. The Rocks, Darling Harbour, Circular Quay with the Opera House, the Pitt Street Mall.
- The Rocks – the area fist settled 200 hundred years ago. This is near the water, and provides one of the best views of the Bridge and Opera House. Plenty of little craft shops, boutiques, weekend markets and cafes. Some fine hotels too.
- Central Station. This connects to all the suburban and country trains, as well as the busses and interstate coaches. Accommodation for backpackers.
- Darling Harbour. Hotels, museums, Parks, fancy shopping, all sorts of restaurants, the world’s largest Imax cinema (when they finish rebuilding it). And some of the best hotel accommodation. You could spend a week vacation here.
- China Town and Paddy’s Markets. Shopping. Near Darling Harbour.
- Harbour bridge – iconic scene. You can walk across the bridge for free. See the museum in the tower near Milson’s Point. Or take the (rather expensive) Bridge climb tour.
- Circular Quay – the Opera house, or take a ferry ride to see the Harbour. Travel to Luna Park or Darling Harbour.
- Bondi Beach. One of countless beaches around Sydney
- Queen Victoria Building. The fancy shopping mall. Right next to town Hall station, one stop from Central Station.
- Botanical Gardens. Natural flowers, plants and gardens
Take a Sydney airport shuttle to make your trip so much easier. Always be on time and travel in style.
