Where to stay in Sydney

About Sydney

Sydney has long been Australia’s most-visited city, thanks to world-famous landmarks and attractions, picture-postcard beaches and a mesmerising harbour. This vibrant and exciting city is full of memorable experiences, from pop-up bars and Michelin-starred restaurants to innovative museums and legendary sporting events.

Things to do

Best known as the home of the Sydney Harbour Bridge and the Sydney Opera House, Sydney’s CBD district combines innovative architecture, invigorating live performances, chic bars and outdoor adventures. A short walk away, discover The Rocks, the historic area of the city centre; meander through the heart of Sydney’s CBD on George Street, then enter the lush expanse of Hyde Park to find a respite from the hustle and bustle of the city.

Do you dream of visiting the famous Sydney Harbour? Take a ferry, sail a yacht or ride in a thrilling jet boat. If you’re travelling with the kids, take them to Darling Harbour, a pedestrian-friendly entertainment precinct with waterfront restaurants, a historic carousel, children’s playground and theatre.

Sydney’s innovative food and nightlife scene attracts travellers from around the world. Get a taste of Australia’s cuisine at the Sydney Fish Market, where you can soak in the bustling atmosphere before dining on fresh seafood while overlooking the water. For the ultimate Sydney experience, sip on a cocktail at Opera Bar in Circular Quay and soak up views of the boats and cruise ships passing under the Sydney Harbour Bridge.

Time your visit to coincide with the annual Vivid Sydney festivities, when Australia’s capital is adorned in vibrant light shows across its most iconic landmarks, including the Sydney Opera House, Royal Botanic Gardens and Harbour Bridge. Vivid Sydney also showcase some of the world’s greatest thinkers in technology, film, design and entrepreneurial pursuits, along with live musicians, film festivals and DJ-led parties.

Gear up for a day of shopping with all the big-name stores and designer boutiques found in Pitt Street Mall and Martin Place. Your Sydney holiday also wouldn’t be complete without taking a day trip to the famous Bondi Beach, about 50 minutes from the city via bus.

Getting Around

Public transport is the best way to get around, with many points of interest connected by trains, light rail, buses and ferries. Take a ferry from Circular Quay to Darling Harbour for a bite-sized view of the city, where you’ll float under the Harbour Bridge and around the Opera House. Trains and buses travel throughout the CBD and connect travellers to destinations in Greater Sydney, while Sydney Airport is the main gateway to the capital and is less than a 15-minute train ride from the city centre.
